Hello! I am so happy you are here. I know it can be so daunting looking for a therapist so making it this far is huge! As a licensed therapist, I truly believe healing comes when another is able to come alongside you and offer support as you rediscover parts of yourself that may have been lost or broken. I work with individuals struggling with trauma, grief, anxiety, and life transitions. I am passionate about women's issues and look forward to helping create a safe and compassionate space to help you work through these issues and tap into your strengths, identify vulnerabilities, and develop your resilience.

To be happy and free of suffering ... this is the experience of effective therapy. When we're witnessed, deeply understood and guided to our true self, the challenges of being human can become magical. Blending multiple clinical orientations I work with the client's whole being - mind, body & spirit - to discover his/her own unique truths and capacities. Because so much of who we are is a function of our relationships, I gravitate toward couples, families and groups, teaching people how to relate to themselves and each other with refreshing honesty and authenticity.

When our past is haunting our present, it is an opportunity to explore unresolved pain, grief, sadness and anger that we may not have been able to express as children. I believe that becoming a whole person involves identifying, retrieving and integrating lost parts of ourself. My intention is to guide clients to discover the healing they seek through gentle curiosity, practical exercises and nervous system rewiring. My primary areas of focus include: grief & loss, self-worth, women's work, ancestral healing and unresolved early childhood attachment trauma.

It can be very challenging to see things clearly in life. I help individuals re-adjust their way of looking at themselves, their relationships, and the world. Through psycho-dynamic exploration, I come alongside a patient in the discovery of what is possible, as it is my belief that the most crucial part of therapy is the relationship that builds between patient and therapist. It is often easier to shine a light into uncertain areas of one's heart and mind when someone else is holding the flashlight.

Finding a therapist can be a hard endeavor. You’re looking for someone you can open up to, trust and share in some of the most painful and most intimate parts of your life. It takes vulnerability and courage to reach out and finding someone you can trust to open up to is a big piece in if therapy will work for you. If you’re browsing psychology today, you are probably looking for a caring face and a professional you can trust to navigate this season in life with. I’d be honored to join you on this journey.

If the relationship you are in is struggling, if you feel alone or as if you keep having the same fight, if you are struggling with some type of betrayal or anger  I can help.  In your first sessions we will discover the things that are holding your relationship back from being what you thought it could be when you first met. As we work together I will help you identify where new skills are needed and get you headed toward the relationship you have been longing for.

I practice a type of somatic therapy that helps people increase contact with their physical experience. Too often, we lose contact with our bodies through social conditioning or relational trauma. By working to develop somatic awareness, we can refine our emotional intelligence and thus our sense of self-agency: If you know what you feel at a gut level, you can be clearer in your discernment, and empowered to ask for and claim what you need in your life.

Do you struggle to be your true self around family, friends or in your workplace? Have you ever felt like something is missing in your life but don't know what it is? If so chances are you're also experiencing some anxiety, depression and feeling like a boat out at sea with no oars, getting pushed around by the waves of life with no say in which direction your life goes. You crave meaning and purpose but don't know where to start.

You worried about your relationships that it’s now hard to focus on other aspects in your life. You may be fed up with having the same fights over and over, feeling overwhelmed or lonely, and feeling insecure. You might not even remember a time things didn’t feel this way. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for a change. You’re ready to understand and manage your emptions. You’re ready to feel confident. Most of all, you’re ready to feel more connected and in control of how you show up in your relationships

Drifting, no land in sight, you need a compass to guide you home to yourself. The good news, I’ve navigated this journey and understand it well. And I am here for you and to support you.

I meet my clients where they are at, and begin by building on the relationship where we can focus on the parts that seem to be holding one back from living their most authentic life. Every one has their own unique journey, and I believe that in a strong therapeutic relationship, healing, growth, and transformation is possible. Therapy allows for one to gain insight and awareness around one's patterns of behavior. Let us meet together to see if we are a good fit.

Listen, if you’re here, you’re probably really going through it right now. Maybe it’s your relationships, your work, a painful experience, the fact that you just lived through a pandemic… maybe it’s all of it. So now you’re looking for someone – who isn’t your friends or family – to support you. Someone who has the education, training and experience to help you navigate what, quite frankly, might be one of the most difficult seasons of your life so far. You need a safe, warm place to land and gather some tools for what comes next. I've got you. Let's dig in, do the work, but also make space for joy together along the way.

Hi! I'm Jenn. I specialize in Maternal Mental Health and in helping women navigate their 20's/30's. Many of my clients feel burdened by the expectations of others, overwhelmed by school/work/life balance or unsatisfied in relationships. Some wonder about the right time to start a family, others have experienced a challenging and emotional road trying to start their family. Mothers I work with tell me they feel they've lost themselves in caring for their growing family, they've lost their connection with those close to them, and often times their symptoms of Perinatal Depression or Anxiety are sucking the joy out of motherhood.

Two innate drives we all share are the desire for self love and connection to others. By integrating the practical application of system based theories with structured skill building and holistic medicine, negative thought patterns and shakey attachments can be replaced in order to create the space to re-imagine one’s belief systems.
