About Me

Hi! I'm Jennifer, I want to tell you a little about myself. My work focuses on individuals and groups that struggle with trauma, anxiety and related disorders, as well as mild depression, and overall mental/emotional wellness. All of these can be difficult to navigate alone. I am here to offer a safe space, for whatever is weighing on you. When we begin, much like when you build any other relationship, I would like to build our therapeutic relationship. I believe the best therapy takes place when it begins person-centered, meaning we take a little time to build the therapeutic relationship, build trust and have open, honest communication. I want you to know this is a safe environment for you to share your thoughts and feelings, there is no judgment. I encourage honest feedback from you, not only regarding your goals but also our work together. I would like you to be direct about what works, what does not work or if things are going well. This is a collaborative process and we can often adjust to make things a better fit for your needs.
I'm the owner/operator of Our Therapy Journey in Akron, Ohio and a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Ohio holding the licensed professional clinical counselor (LPCC) status. I am a Wake Forest University graduate, holding a Master of Arts in Counseling degree with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am a member of the American Counseling Association (ACA), Chi Sigma Iota Pi Alpha Chapter and hold both the nationally certified counselor (NCC) and the certified clinical trauma professional designation (CCTP). I'm happy to answer any other questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to talking soon!

Jennifer empowers me with the tools I need for general anxiety. She is both patient and honest in her approach. I always feel better after writing to her and hearing her responses.

Jennifer has been very helpful in helping me deal with my anxiety. She has given me lots of tips and tricks already and I’m excited to see where the rest of our time together takes me.

Jennifer has been incredibly patient in navigating through the new world of online therapy with me. I very much appreciate that she has made our counseling relationship collaborative, and provides perspectives and insight that I may not have seen before in myself.

From the start, Jennifer allowed me to voice the concerns on my mind and heart. She listens and responds respectfully and with empathy, which is so validating! She also provides me with ideas and techniques to help me address my issues. Thank you, Jennifer!

Jennifer is caring, supportive, flexible and non-judgmental. Very soon after beginning counseling, I felt I was already making progress due to her kind nature and expertise. I highly recommend her!

I am really pleased with my councilor. She is very responsive and insightful. I like being able to have a remote session along with messaging throughout the week / month. I am a big supporter and would happily refer any friend or family.

Jennifer has been extremely helpful and supportive in my time of need. I have been struggling and slogging my way through the aftermath of a traumatic breakup. I don't feel judged by her at all; I believe she recognizes the person I am trying to become and is helping me baby-step down the path to my ultimate emotional freedom, satisfaction, and self-actualization. She has helped me navigate difficult mood swings and verbalize my desires, even if they are fantasy. I would recommend her to any of my friends for counselling.

Jennifer is phenomenal. I’m grateful to have been matched with her. From the moment I first corresponded with her, I felt heard. She is able to make connections of things I didn’t even realize were there.
