I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with a practice that focuses on young adults, adults, seniors, couples, veterans , and families. I am also a United States Army Combat Veteran, and a father who knows what it is like to put other people's needs before your own. It takes time, exploration, and effort to learn a new way of looking at yourself. It takes time to see what is on the other side of the coin.

Hello, I'm Jen, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I earned my clinical mental health degree from Loyola Marymount University, LA, in 2017. I chose that specific program for its emphasis on cultural humility and the importance of integrating this into the therapeutic alliance, working toward healthy outcomes for my clients. I am a Veteran of the United States Air Force and started my clinical journey working with Veterans who struggle with substance abuse and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQIA+ community, Veterans , and first-generation college students.. ​

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for coping skills, My focus is Trauma Recovery, PTSD, Veterans , military and their families, victims of violence, rape, crimes, elder and child abuse.
When searching for a therapist it's vital that we find someone we can truly trust and believe can help us. Security and comfort with a therapist is very important. When a client finds these features in a therapist then they are better able to set and reach goals to fulfill their dreams and to find their meaning and purpose in life. I provide a warm, safe and supportive environment for clients so they may feel that they are seen and understood. The basis of my work begins with the birth of a secure attachment.

It is hard to navigate traumatic experiences and their lasting impacts on us whether it's developmental trauma, community/domestic violence or while serving in the military .
It is so exhausting living inside a traumatized body and mind. Anxiety that seems to come out of nowhere; thoughts, feelings, and the overwhelm of re-experiencing events. Feelings of unsafety or a constant need to be hyperaware. Insomnia, changes in appetite make matters worse because the body and mind don't get the needed fuel and rest leading to cycles of collapse. The anxiety and collapse cycle can cause us to feel disconnected from ourselves, loved ones and the world. We can lose trust in our own judgment and ability to heal. My approach is informed by a holistic integration of practices to help reconnect mind, body and soul.

It’s been awhile since you can remember feeling genuine happiness or feel a sense of direction in your life. As far as other people know, things are going well and you have things figured out. But in reality, you feel isolated and alone because the things that keep you up at night are or from other people are difficult to express. Or the people around you are not equipped to understand what you’re going through. It may be an overwhelming fear of failure, managing parenting challenges, or managing expectations from your parents, or work.

You're going about your day to day barely holding it together. You want to talk about what bothers you with your friends and family, but the stigma, or guilt or shame keep you quiet. You feel like no one will get it, or that opening up will make you seem "less than" to those who count on you the most. You keep telling yourself "it's not that bad" or "you're just over reacting get it together." You know that something is off, and for the first time you don't know how to deal with it.

I vividly remember the first time I used this website to seek out a therapist. I was filled with despair, intense fear, shame and insecurity but had no consciousness into these emotions. I was so disconnected from my body and my spirit. My thoughts were racing and I was stuck in patterns of self-sabotage and harmful coping mechanisms. It took everything out of me to make eye contact with another person as I began to speak about this. I will never forget the compassion I experienced from my first therapist as she held sacred space for me to begin this process. I strive to embody the same deep compassion for each therapy client I see.

Maybe you are needing support during this unknown and, for many people, scary time. Or, maybe you are needing a bigger change. Congratulations on taking your first step! It can be hard to select "the right therapist" from these giant lists. Sometimes it can be about chemistry and fit, and you just have to try with someone. I believe that you can find clarity and relief, and my own journey has taught me that healing and/or [some] relief is possible. I work with adults who are dealing with a variety of things such as depression or anxiety, relationship issues, low self esteem or shame, and/or feelings of "stuckness" or being lost.

What type of Ventura mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ventura?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
