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

Loneliness and anxiety were already at record highs before the pandemic and the fall of the economy. Helping people with feelings of isolation and loneliness as well as nervous anxiety have been a substantial part of my work for over two decades. It has been a privilege to help individuals and couples heal the fractures in the foundation of their lives. Together we can find the solutions to your challenges and face what is to come with a sense of courage and confidence
