About

Hi and welcome! My name is Jen and I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist and BCBA. I have 12 years of experience facilitating support to Children, Adolescents, Individuals and Families as they work towards overcoming their personal mental health/behavioral challenges. Some of these challenges have included Anxiety/Panic, Depression, Issues with Self-Esteem/ Healthy Boundaries, Family Conflict, PTSD, Childhood Trauma, Insecure Attachment Styles, Parenting, Co-Dependency and difficulties managing ADHD/ASD.
My treatment approach is compassionate, grounded and authentic. I individualize my theoretical techniques to match my clients personalized needs, among those are CBT, DBT, ACT, TFBT, SFBT, and Attachment theory. My goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment while holding space for my clients as they navigate through their internal system.
Do you ever wonder why certain situations can elicit such an overwhelming response, leaving you and others confused? Do you ever feel misunderstood and have difficulties connecting with others? Therapy can be a wonderful place to explore these situations, guiding you through your own internal process of exploration and discovery to find personal alignment.
