Jennifer Dukes is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA who specializes in both individual and couples counseling. Her one-on-one work with clients often revolves around tackling issues of chronic over-worrying and rumination, with the intention of developing self-empowerment that feels authentic to them.
Given the fast-paced nature of modern life (and especially so in the Bay Area), Jennifer understands what it’s like to feel stretched too thin; many of her clients hold themselves to unrealistic standards and feel like they’ve failed themselves and others when they don’t meet these lofty goals. She helps clients grow awareness of negative self-talk and disarm harmful habits so as to replace them with a kinder, more self-compassionate inner dialogue.
When working with couples, Jennifer creates a safe, engaging space where each partner is able to better attune to themselves and their partner, and ultimately develop sustainably healthy communication patterns.
Jennifer’s office is currently teletherapy only for clients in the area and across the state.
