Dr. Weekes is very skilled, leads me where I need to go & is very efficient. She asks the questions I need to explore, really listens & I’m blown away by her ability to pick up on what I’m not perhaps communicating but is in my head. Very knowledgeable & would recommend!

Dr. Weekes is amazing. She is kind, a great listener, and offers spectacular advice. She remembers everything. My life has gotten significantly less stressful since Dr. Weekes has come along. She is always available to talk and really goes above and beyond to accommodate my somewhat crazy schedule. I find myself looking forward to our weekly chats. She is fantastic, and her patients are very lucky to have a doctor who really goes above and beyond.

Written on Dec 18, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Jennifer is incredible. I have worked with her since January 2021 and she has helped me navigate through some of the toughest few months I have ever gone through. Her kindness, compassion and commitment and confidence in me was unwavering and I never felt like I was alone or thought I could not get through this time. I feel like I have come leaps and bounds since our first session. I have more tools to reach for during hard times and I have better boundaries in place with a lot more self worth and self love in the bag. I cannot thank Jennifer enough, I could not have done it without her.

Dr Weekes always makes me feel comfotable, especially when we discuss difficult topics. I have seen such a change in my mood and outlook, which I owe to her expertise and guidance. I would not think twice about recommending her.
