Mindfulness Based Play and Family Therapy and Parenting by Connection training have provided me with experience and interventions to help parents empathically listen to and respond to a wide variety of issues facing children.
I specialize in therapy care for children, teens and young adults and families. Parents are included as part of the therapy process from start to finish. Individuals and couples are also seen using a relational lens. Issues you may want to focus on are building cooperation and fostering openness instead of hostility and defiance; growing self esteem and confidence instead of fearfulness, clinging and sadness; increasing tolerance and self control instead of tantrums and aggression. Our work will heal family patterns of discord, hurt and division and will help children along their journey of becoming a confident, well rounded individual.

I utilize a relational/developmental approach and offer a caring, empathetic understanding of what it means to parent young children while recovering from one’s own painful childhood experiences.
Are you frustrated that your child isn’t listening to you? Do you see yourself repeating negative patterns from your own parents or caregivers? Do you feel disconnected from your child and wish there was a way to gather them back to you? ​ Let’s talk. As a Parenting Specialist, I help parents and caregivers develop a deeper understanding of the “why” behind kids’ behavior and teach them how to replace old patterns with loving intentional strategies to deepen their relationships.

I am a well-seasoned clinician and parenting teacher.
Are you feeling stuck or trapped? Do you need to drop into greater self-awareness or “grounding”, but you keep getting “triggered” and respond in your old ways? Have you tried meditation or yoga, yet feel something is missing? Have you sensed true “flow” and playfulness in your interactions with others or within yourself, but, sadly, it is just not consistent? Does your composure disappear when you need it most? Have you spent time learning how to develop your parenting and general relationship skills, but you keep reverting to prior patterns of reactivity. If so, try something new with me.

Parenting is one of life's greatest adventures. Amid the numerous books, experts, and voices out there it can be difficult to determine what to do when faced with a challenge. Parents of spirited, high-energy, rigid, anxious, or disruptive children or of those who carry diagnoses may feel alone with their challenges. As your psychologist, I offer empathy, support and a collaborative approach for fostering goodness-of-fit parenting in your family. That is, I help you to discover the most effective ways for you to parent your unique child.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my approach is genuine and sincere. My focus is to help clients recognize and manage emotions, encourage ways to effectively express what they are feeling and introduce fun and effective coping strategies. Throughout my work with adults, teens, and children, it has been essential to communicate empathy as I build trust and teach the cognitive and relaxation skills necessary to help manage depression, grief, episodes of abuse, adjustment, and anger issues. To support the whole family, I attend to parents through couples counseling, and parenting skills to enhance/improve communication.

Because I have experience with such a wide age range, I can help with issues that may arise even before you become a parent , and extend to the birth, post-partum, and issues with family members, old and young.
I specialize in working with individuals who are coping with life and on maternal mental health issues. I have great experience with moms, families of children with special needs, anxiety, depression, and family relationships. The 'right treatment' is not the same for everyone and I work to understand and integrate the physical and mental health factors that impact your situation. I am not pretentious or judgmental. I am practical and personable. My success comes from my understanding and willingness to treat what you need first, and utilize all the expertise available to help you and your family function the way you want.

Psychologist, MS
Jennifer Paget, MS, will partner with you to develop parenting practices that fit both your child's abilities and the needs of your family.
Every day is filled with parenting battles that leave you exhausted and guilt-ridden, having lost your temper too many times. You ache for a more peaceful home and a loving relationship with your child or teen, but you don’t know how to get there. General advice and tips sound good on paper but they are not working with your child, and you don’t know why. Your energy and resilience are taking a serious hit. Worst of all, you are afraid that your child will be emotionally harmed by all the turmoil that goes on from day to day.

I welcome all clients, but have special interest in parenting and the family.
So many of us are worried that we have an unfixable problem, or that we ourselves are broken beyond repair. Whatever the issue, we all need someone who's willing to come in and sit in that place with us. I believe that therapy is a relationship, a chance to open up long-closed boxes and explore meaning in a safe place with a caring person. In that space, we can cultivate growth and change.

For more than 40 years I have enjoyed working as a psychologist delivering counseling, consultation and assessment services. I consider it a privilege to be invited into an individual's world at a time of need and work hard to build a trusting alliance with each person. I listen to my clients and engage them around the unique stories they share so we can set goals and a treatment plan that is personally tailored to each individual and/or couple. My approach is a relational one such that I use our therapeutic connection to facilitate change.
