Professional statement

Jennifer Bommer is a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate and Certified Brain Injury Specialist based in Austin, Texas, who specializes in head trauma and brain injuries. Jennifer's work with head trauma is not limited to traumatic brain injuries and concussions. She works with people from all ages as they recover from strokes, aneurysms, neurodegenerative diseases, blast injuries, infections of the central nervous system, as well as other anoxic brain injuries.

Many of Jennifer’s clients are navigating new circumstances that they feel are insurmountable or hopeless. Even after doctor's appointments, brain scans, and diagnoses people can still feel lost, uncertain of what their recovery will look like, and unequipped to handle tomorrow. Cognitive deficits in functions like memory and reading comprehension can make work and school feel like a losing battle. Ongoing difficulties with chronic fatigue and mood instability might leave someone feeling as if they don't recognize their life anymore.

Sessions with Jennifer are intended for providing helpful information to clients and their loved ones, creating an environment of positive support, and developing adaptive strategies that will benefit the recovery of the client. Jennifer's sessions are educational, collaborative, trauma-informed, and tailored to each client's unique case. She draws heavily on her background as a health psychology researcher as well as her range of skills as a counselor in order to meet each client where they are in their recovery. Jennifer is committed to building a therapeutic relationship with clients that prioritizes client knowledge, growth, and hope for the future.

Jennifer encourages seeing clients in-office and offers virtual sessions as well.


Message to clients

My work with people of all ages is centered around the good news that the brain is malleable and adaptable. Whether you are suffering from a recent head trauma or are interested in receiving help for struggles that have lingered from a past brain injury, please feel free to reach out to me for more information or a consultation. I work with clients in both the post acute and retroactive setting meaning that I'm here to help regardless of how long ago you suffered your injury. My goal is that you walk away from our first session feeling more informed about your brain injury and hopeful for the progress that can be made during your recovery.

No two of my clients or their treatment plans are the same. We'll spend the first session discussing what happened, how you've been feeling/functioning since the injury, and begin working together on a plan of support and rehabilitation. My ongoing sessions with clients include assessments of cognitive deficits, developing coping methods and lifestyle improvements for home/work/school, providing counseling for individuals and/or family members related to injury and medical trauma, as well as assessing your progress throughout the course of our work together.
