Jen is a licensed clinical social worker who works with adult individuals, couples and adolescents.
She has experience working with life transitions, anxiety, depression, aging, and caregiver issues. Her particular areas of interest include gender and sexual identity, relationship issues, family issues, problems with attachment, and eating problems.
Jen believes that her clients are the experts in their own lives and that her job as a therapist is to help them to look at old problems in new ways.
She uses primarily psychodynamic and attachment approaches, as well as mindfulness and cognitive behavioral tools when appropriate. Regardless of theory or technique, she works to create a warm, safe, comfortable space where clients feel able to think and talk about vulnerable topics.
Jen believes that her relationship with the client is the foundation of that space and the most basic, important aspect of the therapy.
