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.
