My Approach

Jennifer takes pride in creating a safe and trusting relationship with her patients so they can use our sessions to gain their fullest potential. She enjoys working together with patients and their families to ensure growth on the mutually agreed upon goals we set. In addition, she enjoys working with children, teens, and adults to support anxiety, learning difficulties, depression, and interpersonal relationship challenges. She works on relationship building through fun activities and games and teaches tools and strategies directly. This combination of modalities allows patients to leave sessions with accessible activities they can use between our meetings.
