My primary modalities are Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), Intimacy From the Inside Out (IFIO), Interpersonal Neurobiology, woven through a thorough understanding of attachment theory.
Living out our own sense of wisdom into our fullest expressions both personally, professionally and in relationships takes bravery. Change and transformation is often messy and confusing yet frequently results in our wildest dreams actually coming true. It takes work. Change is not a path anyone needs to go at alone. Having an experienced practitioner (like a therapist or coach) can jumpstart change and bypass unnecessary suffering. I specialize in resilience building, self-compassion and trauma recovery for this reason. I weave modern neuroscience with ancient wisdom traditions in an effort to help people find what they long for.

My approach is primarily based on Mindfulness Psychology, Internal Family Systems , Jung, and Hakomi.
Occasionally we need someone to help guide us back to ourselves and to ground in that inner knowledge. Whether it is mid-life transitions, loss, trauma, our past history, relationships, or simply the chaotic pace of our modern life that has caused us to lose touch, finding our way back helps us to find what we are seeking. Decisions and life transitions then feel a little less burdensome, our relationships less fraught with conflict, our lives a little more joyful. I think Jon Kabat-Zinn found the most eloquent way of saying it...

I use Attachment Theory, Somatic Experiencing, Interpersonal Neurobiology, Emotional Transformative Therapy, IFS , Sand Tray Therapy and self compassion work to help you find your truth and purpose.
Sometimes life can feel lonely, stuck and meaningless. We live in a world that encourages us to cut off from our feelings, from our sense of being truly alive. When we do this, we can begin to feel rigid, anxious, depressed and empty. I am passionate about helping adults with anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem and relationship issues. My approach is to help you connect to your body and emotions in a way that helps you know yourself more deeply, feel more confident in your decisions. Using these methods, we can help, pull you out of depression & anxiety spirals.

My primary approaches to therapy are mindfulness, Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), and attachment work.
Our culture around work and productivity leaves many of us feeling burned out, isolated, and highly critical of ourselves. I help my clients grow in mindfulness so they can show up more fully to their lives, for themselves, and for their loved ones. My approach is warm, validating, and direct. If you aren’t sure what to talk about, I will help you connect with what’s underneath the day-to-day conflict. Some may feel like their experience isn’t “bad enough” for therapy, but we can talk about whatever hurts in a non-judgmental space.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems , EMDR, and Gottman Therapy are some of our options.
We walk this earth together, and I consider it a great gift each time I have the privilege of walking beside a fellow human being as they courageously make the decision to do what they know each person needs to do throughout life- reach out to someone to assist in gaining clarity along the way. I have found many people are unaware not only of the formidable strengths they possess, but that through self-awareness and healing, their life may become one of skilled resilience. I offer you my deep presence, empathy, skills, and unconditional positive regard as we walk this path as a team.

Jennifer has focused her post graduate education and training on the areas of attachment, trauma and how memories are processed, along with family systems , working with natural, blended and adoptive families as well as grief and loss in terms of relationships.
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.

My extensive experience with working with children, teens, and parents along with my training in marriage and family systems , has made me uniquely qualified to assess and improve relationships within a family.
Life might have thrown you a new curveball that has gotten you off balance. OR nothing big has happened, but feelings of being stuck have emerged from somewhere. Psychotherapy offers you a safe place to make changes to old patterns that hold you back. I can help you navigate the uncharted path & assist in developing the insights & skills you need to thrive in life. Therapy works best when we collaborate toward created goals in a respectful & affirming setting. Our work involves identifying & working through unhealthy relationship patterns, helping to change the way you think to improve the way you feel, in order to live your life.

My somatic training also provides expertise in helping those with chronic illness or pain and how this is related to mental health. With couples, my focus is on fostering closeness in order to build more security and enjoyment together. I also have expertise in helping couples with infidelity issues.

I like to help you identify behaviors and discern choices that will lead towards your desired lifestyle or go inward with you and explore the deeper levels of your consciousness using an Internal Family Systems modality and mindfulness work to facilitate self-acceptance and self-love.
Treading water long enough can lead to exhaustion and the waves of life can often feel unsurmountable on your own. The loudness in our cultures and in our minds bring heavy burdens that can trap you and make you forget who you really are. It takes a great deal of courage to reach for something different. You have taken a huge step considering therapy. Choosing someone you can trust and feel the freedom to be authentic with, in order to explore some of the deepest parts of life, is important. I am passionate about helping you find this freedom and live authentically while embodying your truest nature, despite the waves that come.

I specialize in using DBT, CBT, and IFS modalities to help adults (18+) struggling with substance use, personality disorders, self-harm/suicidal thoughts, emotional outbursts, and other behavioral issues.
We all begin the therapeutic journey with our own set of strengths and needs. Sometimes our uniqueness promotes creativity, new perspectives, and collaboration. Other times our uniqueness can be terminal; leading to emptiness, feeling disconnected from self and others, and beliefs that mental health treatment may work for other people, but it won’t work for you. Therapy is not about “getting over” events and issues; it’s about understanding your triggers and learning how to manage your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors so that you can move forward and continue to build a fulfilling life.
