Jennifer has a lifelong passion for how people learn and grow over time. She is interested in how our stories about ourselves keep us stuck or help us move forward and flourish through our lives.
Jennifer is a licensed professional counselor who received her degree from Loyola University Chicago’s Institute of Pastoral Studies in 2011. As an integrative psychotherapist, she draws from a range of techniques, using cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and humanistic models. She enjoys exploring the interplay of body, mind, and spirit and how these different facets, as well as our many cultural roles, help to sustain our True Self.
SHOULD I SEE HER? YES!
Jennifer has experience working with a wide range of people and encourages you to reach out. She most often works with those who are:
- Living with chronic illness.
- Working through grief, whether from loss of a loved one or loss of personal dreams or life expectations.
- Trying to consciously parent their children in today’s challenging times.
- Young, old, or in-between–exploring their calling or life purpose.
- Interested in developing capacities in any area of their lives with the goal of more fulfillment.
- Seeking to embody sustained change.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM THERAPY?
In order to better understand where you are coming from and where you’d like to be going, Jennifer will start with a conversation about what you’re hoping to get out of therapy. You may need a tailored plan to help you accomplish your goals or you may need a more free-flowing approach. Don’t worry about having all the answers. With an open mind, we will discover them together along the way.
Throughout your time with her, you can expect Jennifer to listen deeply. She approaches the therapeutic relationship with curiosity, compassion, and courage.
Jennifer is a member of the American Counseling Association, and is an associate coach with Integral Coaching Canada.
Jennifer is available on Thursdays and Fridays by appointment.
