Our sexuality is at the core of who we are as humans, and where we came from – it is our life force. It’s also at the core of our own identity. So many of us are searching for who we truly are. We’re so encapsulated in who we should be being for others, that we end up losing ourselves. This shows up most frequently in intimate relationships. Our desire for unconditional love from another supersedes our need for physical connection. Emotion trumps sexuality. And what goes on within our mind shuts down the abilities of our body. Are you feeling lost in your relationship? Do you desire more sexually?

Are you losing sleep, feeling sad, anxious, confused, withdrawn, or feeling helpless about your situation? Feeling stuck?

I believe that our struggles occur when we are out of alignment with who we really are. So many of us are simply trying to cope with day to day challenges and do not recognize their need for exploration or creativity. I work from a compassion-focused perspective and believe that deep healing occurs when we allow ourselves the space to explore our emotions and our current life circumstances. Whether you are dealing with dating/relationship issues, anxiety, or trauma, we can work together to help get you on the right path to a more meaningful life. Please book at http://drjennie.as.me

I believe people want to express who they are and pursue satisfying work and relationships, but have emotional and cognitive patterns that keep them stuck. These patterns often consolidate into a persona that leaves people feeling not quite themselves, with needs unrealized, feelings ignored, and potential unused. Symptoms of anxiety and depression, addictions, or low self-esteem, are often the only messengers trying to let us know that we are needing change. In a supportive and safe environment, therapy can help to bring these patterns into awareness and liberate needs to connect, create, and expand with fuller emotional support.

Perhaps you are reading this because you feel stuck in your job, a relationship ended, or you recently experienced a loss in which you feel others cannot understand. I would be honored to support and work side by side with you during these life transitions. Together, we can try to make sense of what is happening, understand what possibilities exist, and even find a sense of freedom from all the difficulties you are experiencing. Each of us has our own story and while we cannot control the plot, we can heal from our wounds and the perception we hold of our experiences.

I give them tools to attain more refined states of balance, personal engagement and vibrance in their lives. The process of therapy is immensely creative and personally unique, and in its' special moments asks that we step into leaps of faith of being with our present experience. The benefits are priceless. Depression, anxiety, not having a sense of self, destructive thinking, procrastination, poor relationship quality are all within our control to change.

I have worked closely with the perinatal community as a prenatal yoga instructor and a postpartum doula. I was also an educator prior to having my own children. I enjoy helping women and families move through major life transitions. As a woman transitions into motherhood, she has specific developmental hurdles such as learning to adapt to a new role and growing comfortable with a shift in her identity. Simultaneously, she is creating a bond with and relentlessly tending to the needs of her infant. Such change and energy consumption can lead to many difficult emotions that need to be processed and normalized for the new mother.

Trauma, anxiety, and addiction can make you feel stuck. The most important step towards healing is to address the unresolved emotion inside you. Healing requires feelings. Acceptance slowly dissolves pain. When we function from the fear and scarring of our trauma, the cycles continue until we learn how to transmute that energy into love. I apply a Holistic approach that integrates physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual forms of well-being, addressing the “whole” self. Through a holistic framework tailored to your unique needs, the goal is to support you develop a deeper understanding of the self on all these levels.
