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.

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.

Jennifer is the best counselor I could have. I feel hopeful by talking to her and knowing I have her to talk to. She has been opening my mind and helping me to find answers, and also always comes up with a creative solution. She is truly kind, and caring. I feel very lucky to be matched with Jennifer.

Jennifer is very patient and easy to talk to. I was scared to start counseling all over again, but Jennifer has helped me immensely.

Jennifer is a great listener, provides a helpful perspective on my challenges and then provides tools and resources that I can use to make steady progress. I really appreciate having her expertise available to me through a variety of channels that BetterHelp offers. Working with Jennifer is a great experience.
