She works from an integrative approach tailoring her interventions to best suit the particular needs of each client, including elements from psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and mindfulness-based stress reduction. Jennifer enjoys working with all populations. She is also an LGBTQ ally.    

Approach to Wellness
