About me

As a mental health counselor and gender specialist, my commitments are to be your advocate, supporter, teacher, and encourager. Together, we will create a safe and trusting therapeutic environment where you feel comfortable to work. It is a truth of mine that we are all in our own struggles; if only we could be there together in those struggles, we may be able to truly find our strengths more easily.

My therapy style is interactive, inviting and a space I commit to always feeling honest and authentic (I love a good sense of humor along the way). I focus on supporting the individual, as each is unique and may present an array of concerns. An individual will be able to enter into a therapeutic environment that is safe, free from judgment, and supportive. I strive to supply a space for each client that is empowering and motivating. I primarily work from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Positive Psychology. I specialize in working with adolescents, teens, adults, and LGBTQ-affirmative and Transgender transitioning.

I have specific experience within trauma-focused, anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationships, family issues and child behavior concerns. I enjoy working with clients on issues of self-esteem building, anxiety reduction, coping skills, and relationship skills-building. Knowing your authentic self is a true journey of discovery and self-love. This is a true guide for all of my clinical work. I have collected my clinical experience from settings of private practice, university counseling and grade schools.

​I am an avid reader (kind of a history and sci-fi dork...) and have two fantastically wild and amazing kiddos. In my spare time, you can always catch me hosting impromptu dance parties in the kitchen.

I am currently a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (NC) and National Board Certified Counselor. I typically schedule Live Sessions week-to-week, including offering some evening and weekend slots. I will be happy to work out a consistent time for you once we get started.

Only been seeing her for a few weeks but I feel more seen and listened to than with any other therapist I’ve had.

Jen provides a safe space for me to feel, process and move past issues. She provides a realistic, fresh perspective.

Jen and I have been on the same wavelength from the start. I read her bio and I immediately resonated with her being, she listens and gets you to think. She definitely feels like a friend and a home that is safe to relax and be! Much gratitude Jen.

Jennifer is awesome, there was time when I thought I lost everything, that life wasn't worth living anymore.
I was so wrong , and life has really just started for me.
I was really never happy , but now my life is alot happier.
Transgender dysphoria is a killer and if it is not addressed you will never live the life u were meant to have.
Yes ,you'll lose many, but gain more in time.
These people u gain will be true friends.

I was afraid to revisit therapy until I met Jen. She helped me through a tough period in my life and gave actual solutions and advice, mingled with humor and kindness. I cannot recommend her enough.
