Meet Jennifer:

Jennifer is a National Board Certified Counselor who believes in the ability of each individual to overcome and adapt to challenges and change that life brings, be it good or bad.   Having the courage to reach out and ask for help is a strength that most people do not discover within themselves until they have no where else to turn.   The decision to ask for help can be one of the most difficult and humbling experiences one can have, it is also the most rewarding.

Jennifer knows life is not a series of good times, accomplishments, and easy pathways.   Life is full of bumps and turns that can trip us up and make us feel completely alone, even when in a crowded room of people we call our “loved ones.”  Jennifer is dedicated to helping her clients discover the peace they seek by providing consistent and quality care.   Whether you are an individual battling anxiety or depression or a couple that wants to find their joy again, she is willing to start this journey toward your goal with you.

Additionally, Jennifer has extensive experience working with victims of trauma, including Veterans, Military Service Members, and First Responders.

Military Service

Jennifer served ten years in the United States Navy. Her Military and Veteran brothers, sisters and their families are a population that is very dear to her.  She has worked, extensively, with the federal government and communities as an advocate to destigmatize mental health care for our Service members, their families, and our Veterans.
