I am licensed in Washington with 15 years of professional work experience in community mental health and private practice. I graduated with a Master's of Psychology in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chapman University in 2005. I have experience in supporting clients through situational issues as well as developing strategies to manage chronic challenges. I earned designation as a Child Mental Health Specialist and provided clinical supervision to provisional licensees, interns, and senior clinicians before moving to private practice.
We will collaborate to develop a treatment plan that meets your unique needs, builds on your existing strengths, and reaches your goals.
I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. I strive to create a safe and supportive therapeutic environment to allow for growth that may be uncomfortable at times. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am excited that you have taken that step to a healthier life!

Jennifer is tremendously inviting in discussing and exposing the hurt that I’ve had and helping me analyze ways to separate my pain from myself. She is incredibly easy going in her approach and this allows me to feel safe while discussing sensitive subjects and learning to heal properly from a life that would have benefitted from therapy sooner.
