My name is Jennifer and my goal as a Licensed Professional Counselor is to help you understand, navigate, solve, and plan for the inevitable difficulties we all encounter. Life can be very complicated, and those complications are often amplified by misunderstandings, limited knowledge, and a lack of support. It is my desire as your counselor to support you through your struggles and provide you with the necessary empowerment to approach future difficulties with the confidence that you can overcome them.
I counsel with psychodynamic systems and strength-based emotion focused perspectives. This really means that I will work to acquaint myself with you holistically; culturally, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, past, present, and future. Together, we may spend our time exploring how your past experiences, family, cultural groups, school/workplace environments, and greater community detract or enhance your functioning, and collaborating to identify your areas of strength and resilience in order to make plans for the changes that you desire. Each of our sessions will be focused on equipping you with the knowledge and tools to more effectively identify, cope, and communicate your internal experiences to establish more successful patterns of behavior.
I specialize in treating young adults, adults, and am excited to begin working with couples. I have experience in working with trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, and adjustment issues related to relationships, school, career, family and, as a veteran myself, am intimately familiar with the variety of challenges unique to the military population and their families.
I am passionate about working through trauma in a way that enables you to understand how and why your past experiences impact the way you show up in the world and in your relationships today. You do not have to be broken before you seek help. If you have made it this far you are already on the right path to living a more aware, secure, and enriching life!
