Life is messy. It is extraordinary and ordinary and everything in between. Jen adheres to the belief that challenges and hardships can bring great growth and add meaning to the experience of being alive. Jen believes we all have answers within, but sometimes need help to unlock our inner voice and to believe in ourselves. She will be deeply present to your story, reflecting back your words, thoughts and feelings so that you can become more connected to yourself and your life.
Jen believes healing and growth begins with connection – connection with oneself and connection with others. Her hope is that you can trust the space created together in therapy to explore whatever it is that you are seeking to work through. Jen honors diversity of culture, spirituality and identity and works to be an open and welcoming presence to every individual she has the honor to work with.
Your work together will be creative and collaborative. Jen utilizes a variety of approaches including mindfulness, internal family systems, trauma informed, and cognitive behavioral techniques to aid the process of growing self compassion and self awareness. Working from an integrative lens to overall wellbeing you will explore the emotional, physical and spiritual elements of your world. There is nothing that will be off limits to discuss. With deep compassion Jen will help you to stretch to gain new perspective and more hopeful, healthy ways to be in your life.
Jen also enthusiastically provides clinical supervision to pre-licensed practitioners working towards LPC/LPCC licensure.
