About Me

I am a clinical social worker and have been providing psychotherapy for four years. I have experience working with individuals and families. I have worked with a wide range of concerns but have the most experience working with individuals who are experiencing anxiety and/or depression, are struggling at home or at work, are going through grief, or struggling with life transitions. I have experience working with individuals with ADHD, ASD, ODD, Bi-Polar Disorder and PTSD.

My counseling style is educational while still empathetic. I am open-minded and can connect with people from all walks of life. I believe in the self-determination and dignity of every individual so I will always do my best to be respectful and professional. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and person-centered counseling. I like to help individuals set goals for themselves that will help life go better. I will draw from my experience and education to help meet your needs.

Life is messy and hard a lot of the time. I am happy to travel this part of your journey alongside you. I look forward to working with you.

Written by M.I. on May 04, 2020 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

Jennifer reached out to me when I thought no one else could or would help me. She has helped me a lot already, and always listens to what I'm struggling with. Her advice is thoughtful and helpful, and it means a lot to me that she is available in multiple forms of communication. She has gone above and beyond with helping me and is always so patient with me. She is amazing to work with, and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs help.

Jennifer is hands down the best counselor I've ever had. She really takes her time with you and never makes me feel in a rush when the session is coming to an end. She has helped me live my life happily again when I didn't know I could! I am so grateful for finding her and BetterHelp.

Written by A.N. on Nov 12, 2019 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

I am so glad I began counseling with Jennifer. She is patient and understands what I'm trying to say even when I don't have the words to say it. She has recommended books and worksheets for me to do on my own outside of our meetings. I feel like I'm being heard and supported when I talk to her. I wish I had started this process a long time ago. I've already referred numerous friends and family to BetterHelp. It's been life changing for me.

When I first joined this site, I wasn't sure what to expect or if I would regret it immediately. Jennifer was assigned to me and right away, I knew it would be a great experience. She really listened and asked great questions and knew that I would need to deal with past traumas in order to move forward with current issues. She has given me many worksheets that have helped me a lot and has already been very insightful and a tremendous help. I will likely be purchasing the year package.
