About me

I obtained my Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) credential in 2016. I have 24 years of experience in social work. My experience includes working with adults, children, teen parents, and teens who face challenges in their lives to reach their fullest potential. My belief is therapy is a safe space to explore and work toward positive outcomes, assisting clients to achieve their therapeutic goals and alleviate stress.

I have worked with clients regarding domestic violence, co-dependence, anxiety issues, and parenting topics. In the past I have advocated on behalf of clients which allows the client and families obtain greater success toward their goals. As your therapist, you and I will build a relationship of trust and understanding to work through the issues that are important to you. My work in client home settings, as well as a behavioral hospital and in clinical assessment have included several modalities. I am proficient in Cognitive Behavioral theory, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma work, Stress Management, complicated grief interventions.

She knows a lot about my issues

Written on Jun 15, 2024 after therapy with Jennifer, "Jenny" for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and anger management

Very down-to-earth, realistic, and very helpful

Written on May 22, 2024 after therapy with Jennifer, "Jenny" for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jenny has been wonderful. As someone who was nervous and leery of therapy she has put my mind at ease and is someone I fully trust to help me through this journey in getting better. She’s helped me see some of the things that I’ve not allowed or even noticed before and her holistic approach to therapy is the best I could ask for. She’s already helped me tremendously in just a month and I look forward to what’s to come.

I love having Jenny has a therapist. She is open to the flow of how things may go and yet focused on what my goals are. I love that I am given resources to use and try and homework so that I can prioritize my goals in this area of my life.
