As a therapist, I believe in meeting clients where they are and assisting them in shaping the direction of their future. By examining their past experiences and interactions we can assess together what patterns may be in place and work to disrupt the negative ones while building upon the positive patterns in order to influence the future.
Jennifer has been counseling individuals since 2004 and she is passionate about making a difference in each and every life she touches. In mental health work, one is transformed. There is no going back; only embracing
the flaws and wounds that restore us. I welcome the opportunity to help individuals, couples, and families on their healing journey.
