I have practiced psychotherapy for the past ten years with a focus on children and families, perinatal mental health, anxiety, depression, and ADHD.
Deciding to speak to a therapist is a step in the direction of health - mental, emotional, and sometimes physical. My clients usually come to me after they have tried all they can think of - I feel honored to be their next step and honor the steps they've already taken. Whether a client's concerns pertain to parenting or becoming a parent, perinatal mental health, life transitions, ADHD, or general mental health, I enjoy working together with my clients to determine the best next steps for them.

If you are seeking help for your child or teen, I can also help.
I believe that we can make many changes in our lives in a myriad of ways. We can make changes within ourselves by breaking negative thinking patterns, learning new ways to manage and react to feelings, or by changing behavioral habits. We can also makes changes in our physical and social world, and I seek to help you make decisions and find solutions by identifying realistic, practical, acheivable goals. Core to my practice is a belief that therapy does not need to be painful to be effective, and that smaller changes lead to more and bigger changes.

I have experience working with individuals dealing with presenting concerns such as anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief & loss, behavioral difficulties and trauma.

It takes courage to seek out therapy, so congratulations on taking the first step in your journey of therapeutic healing and connection to self and others. What happens in the therapeutic setting in conjunction with lifestyle enhancements can, over time, bring about lasting change. With gentle facilitation, you can increase awareness of body and mind and enhance mood, motivation, agency, and integration of skills. These self-improvements allow for a more self-directed life that can be lived more fully through consciously curated personal values and choices. I have worked with children , teens, young adults, adults, and families.

Jennifer Neill specializes in helping both adults and adolescents and their parents navigate life with the challenges of change. Jennifer understands communication during the adolescent years can be difficult and assigning meaning to feelings is an important component of healthy communication, for both parents and their children . Generational differences compounded with anxiety, depression and/or trauma, can further complicate an already stressful time. Jennifer believes that “manipulation” is a maladaptive way of getting needs met and that trust building or re-building, for both sides, is an important component of change.
