Hi! I am a licensed social worker with over 10 years of experience working with people who are looking to acheive wellness and feel like they are living as their best self! Issues such as past trauma, difficulties in relationships, career related stress, family/child related stress, and mental health conditions (depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder to name a few) can feel like a barrier to living a happy and healthy life. Changes in our life and natural stage of life transitions can be stressful even if they are positive for us and it is common to need extra support. Good news-by seeking out a therapist you have already taken the first (and sometimes hardest) step! My approach begins by learning where you are at, what your priorities are for our work together, and identifying how we would know if we have met your goals (what is the end result you are looking for). I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused methods to assist you in meeting your goals.

Jennifer is a lovely person to talk to. She is kind and considerate while also being objective. I've enjoyed having her in my life. Jennifer has helped me develop a new perspective on life that I've never had and I'll forever be thankful. Thank you, Jennifer.
I've loved every second with Jennifer and I've felt better ever since she sent me a message.
Having someone to talk to about feelings you are having that you wouldn't want to share with anyone in your life is very nice to have. Jennifer has been great for me!
I feel like I get individual attention and not just a number. She's up front and transparent.
Very empathetic and wise approach to my concerns, but also at the same time provides a wealth of direct tools and action steps applicable to my situation to help me get better. Definitely a great approach and has helped me a lot.
Jennifer makes me feel listened to and supported. She's great!
