Meet Jennifer

After 25 years of providing office psychotherapy, I am delighted to be offering Walk Talk Therapy. Walking and talking engages more of our brains and bodies and can be both motivating and calming. In addition to seeing adults, I have vast experience with teens and young adults, and welcome children over 13 years old who do not need a traditional office setting.


About my interpersonal style:

Clients say “I am easy to open up to, gentle but not touchy-feely, and impossible to freak out”

While not the type to be cracking jokes, sometimes there is a place for humor in mental health

I connect very easily with teens and young adults

Both practical and intuitive, I love developing a solid action plan, but am equally curious about a gut feeling or an unsettling dream you can’t seem to forget

I want to know how therapy is going for you and how we are doing as a team


About my therapeutic approach:

My training is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems Therapy

Therapy provides a safe relationship in which to express ideas, feelings and wishes

I believe that our mind and body affect each other and play a significant role in mental health

I’ve worked extensively with creative mind and body calming techniques

With complete respect for you and your feelings, I will encourage you to make changes


About my personal life: 

I am married and have two young adult children who are both inching their way out of the nest

Raising children has been more gratifying, transformative and challenging than I ever would have imagined

I love music (all kinds), animals (all kinds) and travel (anywhere)

Semester in Florence, Italy
