Note From Jen

“Therapy allows us to take the time and space to reflect on our lives, goals, behaviors, and thoughts.  Finding a safe space to engage in this self-reflection exercise allows us to identify areas for growth, improvement, and healing.  I feel so privileged to be able to work with such a variety of individuals seeking personal growth and insight, and I am committed to the holistic process of story sharing, Socratic questioning, and unconditional positive regard.  We are all resilient, beautiful, and unique individuals walking this life.”
