Deep connections sustain and heal the human spirit. When we are deeply connected to ourselves, our values, our story, and our inner workings, we can thrive. When we are genuinely connected to others, to family, and to community, we can flourish. Often, however, disconnection and fracture prevent the kind of thriving that might be possible. Through my therapeutic approach, I aim to work collaboratively with clients to explore both areas of disconnection and suffering, as well as opportunities for re-connection, for the deepening of current connections, and for lasting change.

Jennifer feels her approach to counseling is honest and holistic. Good mental health works from an ongoing growing partnership of mind, body and spirit. Each affects the other both positively and possibly negatively. Therapy is the place where a person can work towards a more cohesive and robust combination of the three. Jennifer uses different approaches, but feels passionate about the use of art and mindfulness within the therapeutic process.

Most people come to therapy knowing that they have something they would like to address. It is my job to help you create some concrete, achievable goals, so that we can work together to help you get where you want to go. To help address your concerns, I use an integrative, wholistic approach which draws on the many disciplines in which I have training. Whether you enter therapy wanting to deal with anxiety, past trauma, or addiction, or you just want to function better in daily life, together we can work to meet your goals. I see clients both in- person and virtually in Alabama but work only virtually in Tennessee (TN lic# 2504).

Congratulations on taking this step in your journey towards health and healing. It is my goal to help create a safe, nonjudgemental space for my clients to build a more compassionate relationship with their own pain and suffering. When we take a more compassionate and loving stance with our own pain, we can then begin to feel more empowered to move towards the things that we most deeply value and desire in life. You matter, your voice matters, your pain matters. It would be my honor to walk with you on your journey.

Are you struggling with worry or fear that easily spirals out of control, at times to the point of panic? Are you noticing a negative impact on your work/school or your relationships (including with yourself!)? I specialize in helping smart, caring women who struggle with anxiety learn to find greater balance and ease. The women who work with me are the kind, responsible types who tend to their loved ones and to work/school, but who overlook themselves. By the time they get in touch with me, they feel exhausted, stressed out, guilty, and ashamed. They tend to overthink everything and feel easily overwhelmed by their emotions.

**Now Accepting New Clients** I see adults and adolescents who typically present with anxiety and/or depression. If I had to name just one specialty, it would be anxiety. Most people suffer some form of it at some point in their lives. When left untreated, it can lead to more severe symptoms and a whole host of diagnoses. I practice primarily Cognitive Behavioral techniques. I will talk to you about your beliefs, expectations, and how you experience the world. I'll teach you to be more accepting of yourself, so you can stop judging and reacting from created stories. I will also help you improve foundational behaviors.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Nashville, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Nashville listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Nashville are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Nashville

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Nashville you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Nashville and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Nashville or family therapy in Nashville.
