About me

I appreciate you, and the courage you show in seeking counseling. I will provide the sensitivity, kindness, and non-judgmental environment you seek. I have been counseling for over 30 years, and in private practice for over a decade. Allow me the privilege of providing a safe environment for you. We will empower you to achieve your goals, and heal any pain you may be experiencing. I am compassionate and understanding, as well as empathic and consistent. My listening skills are unparalleled. At Boston University, where I received my master's degree, I was taught to "start where the client is". Therefore, what matters to you is what matters to me. I am on your team. I understand how important it is to have someone who can offer validation...this is so rare and hard to find. It is so important to have someone tell us " make sense!" This is what I offer you. I care deeply about each client's needs. I will work with you as a team, empowering you by developing a treatment plan unique to your needs. This plan will help you achieve your deepest desires and overcome your obstacles. I have experience working with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. I also have experience using many different methods of treatment. **I do not write letters for any reason. ie-medical, work, school, pet therapy, court, etc. Any unattended session not cancelled prior to 24 hours will be reported to BetterHelp. ** I will be here with you every step of the way, and I have faith in your ability to persevere!

She was kind and understanding in a difficult and complex situation in my life. Some of what was going on was difficult to follow, but she kept stuff straight, even though there were many people I care about involved.

Jennifers experience and expertise is shown clearly in the way she handles her clients and encourages growth through time. She has given me great insight into my personal situation and is always checking in on me outside of our sessions. Thank you Jennifer!

Jennifer is very kind and empathetic, and has a lot of great resources to help improve my outcomes. It is very clear that she is on your team and in your corner. If you need a lot of positive feedback and affirmation, she would be great for you. She is extremely responsive. I never felt like I was left waiting for a reply. I also felt that she was very open and nonjudgmental especially when it came to relationships. For someone who might be intimidated about therapy, she is very gentle. A very positive and kind person who has great suggestions for outside reading. She also is very supportive of making the most out of the BH experience by encouraging groups and using all the tools of the membership. Just a very lovely person.
