"You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated” Maya Angelou.
Life is full of positive moments where the strength to define ourselves and develop skills to live more fully are easily found. But when life becomes whittled with challenges, stress, and struggles, the test then becomes learning to navigate our feelings, recognize our thoughts, and make changes in our behavior to live more wholly. Most of the time we are capable of handling life’s stresses, but sometimes things can get too overwhelming and stressful, and we need help.

Jennifer has been exceedingly kind, helpful and present in our work together. From meeting one, she helped me confront and uncover things I did not know about myself from the start. Working with her is a pleasure.
She helps you figure out what questions you need to ask yourself to do the right kind of introspection.
Jennifer has helped me work through big obstacles in my life along with the smaller pressures of day to day. We work together to create productive goals that help me feel active in my life while also giving me techniques to work through spikes in anxiety. She has changed the way I look at myself and my life.
Working with Jennifer has been such a great experience. I've felt incredibly comfortable with her from the beginning and feel my sessions with her have been really effective in helping me reach the goals I set with her.
I have been in and out of therapy for years and I have to say Jennifer is one of the best therapist I’ve come across. She’s helping me with a variety of challenges, including chronic pain, anxiety, depression and cognitive behavior therapy for trauma. She’s given me such insightful tactics for managing so many different topics. She used humor to help me feel like I can talk to her about anything and is extremely easy to open up to. I feel so lucky I found her as my therapist. She’s amazing!!
Jennifer is lovely to talk to and is always kind, empathetic and quick to offer a range of solutions for whatever issues for me have come up. Would highly recommend.
Jennifer is always accessible and extremely helpful in offering exercises and methods to help you better your life.
Jennifer is highly empathetic, non judgmental, and gives excellent tools and worksheets to help you along your journey to growth and healing. She's smart, funny, encouraging, and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
Dr. Sherman is very supportive and gets to the heart of the issue. I always feel like she’s on my side. I feel completely comfortable and in a totally judgement free zone.
Jennifer is super nice! She listens to what I have to say and really makes me work on myself in ways I haven’t before.
She’s great and compassionate. She has helped me to celebrate even the smallest wins on this journey. Crucial to seeing your success. She knows how to calm me down. She doesn’t give in either. She always presents an exercise at the end of our sessions.
Throughly enjoying my time with Jennifer. She is warm, engaged, knowledgeable & perceptive. I look forward to deepening our work and relationship.
Jennifer is so shining and wise. She really understands circumstances, and isn’t afraid to challenge you. She’s also very motivating in her words. She does not judge, and listens to what you are and are not saying. She’s good at reading you as well and helping you see things about yourself you haven’t before.
Jennifer is so lovely, I connected with her immediately. She's vibrant and positive but empathetic to your struggles and concerns and doesn't make you feel judged or silly for feeling the way you feel. She's really good at bringing you back down when your thoughts start creating stories that aren't based in reality and aren't serving you or your goals in any way. I'm genuinely looking forward to our journey and work ahead. <3
One of the best therapists I’ve had. She has a great approach. I often feel uncomfortable talking to therapists but she’s so easy to open up to.
