About

What do you want your life to look like? I have over 15 years of experience helping individuals find relief from depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and relationship challenges to create the lives they want. My approach is active and present-oriented, focusing on treatments supported by research. In addition to my private practice, I have worked at Stanford as a Clinical Associate Professor since 2003. I work from a cognitive-behavioral (CBT) perspective, incorporating mindfulness, interpersonal therapy, DBT, stress management, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) depending upon the individual needs of my clients.
I work with individuals experiencing depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, stress, infertility, and relationship difficulties. I also have a special interest in positive psychology that I incorporate into my practice. Drawing on research in happiness and positive emotion, I help clients recognize their personal strengths, cultivate resilience, and enhance optimal functioning.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Jenifer L Culver's Groups

DBT for Bipolar Disorder

This group teaches DBT skills tailored for individuals with bipolar disorder who are interested in learning skills for managing moods and emotions in a structured group environment. I have conducted this group for 13 years (at Stanford and now in my private practice). Groups last 1.5 hours and meet for 14 consecutive weeks. Each 14-week module addresses a particular set of skills (Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation, and Interpersonal Effectiveness). Mindfulness skills are taught and practiced in each group. Groups begin every 3-4 months in Palo Alto. Please contact me to enroll or visit www.bipolartherapy.net.
