Professional statement

Jennifer’s work is focused on both children's mental health and supporting adults as they process their own childhood. Jennifer has in-depth experience with clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, navigating the school systems in NYC (for parents and young learners), emerging adulthood, and loss/grief.

Jennifer works with clients in a relational and experiential way to collaboratively become in touch with their intrinsic capacities to heal and to co-create purposeful and satisfying patterns in their lives. Though humans have defenses, shame and maladaptive coping strategies, Jennifer strongly believes we also have innate abilities to rewire pathways to heal and grow.

Jennifer believes psychological well-being is promoted during therapy when we slow down and pay attention to the vital messages of our bodies. The phrase “survival of the nurtured” coined by Dr. Louis Cozolino, highlights how the search for the right therapist is a courageous and purposeful act. As a Native New Yorker, Jennifer is committed to working with clients as they nourish their capacities for a high quality presence and cooperate with life’s inevitable challenges in such a demanding landscape. Jennifer works within a framework that is neurodiversity - affirming, queer-competent, racial-justice oriented and class conscious.

Message to clients

Growth is beautiful, although at times, not pretty. I'd love to work with you to find effective ways to process what you're going through. I believe your thoughts, emotions and behavior patterns are asking to be noticed and cared for as they alert you to tend to your internal world. How does any of this neurophysiological and psychological work get started in therapy? I believe that therapy is an active conversation where the connection between client and clinician is key to healing and growth. The practice of discovering your needs, through a lens of attachment theory, neuroscience, mind-body connection techniques and critical consciousness, can lead the way to the relief you deserve. You are making a decision to sort through clutter in your mind, and find your way back to peace and openness by choosing to start therapy. Especially in NYC, it is incredible that you are actively planning time for yourself and paying attention to the way you want to live.
