Professional statement

Jennifer Hooper is an LCSW by trade and has been doing therapy for about 17 years. She is often respected as an expert in her field. In addition to direct care, she has also built and ran programs, written curriculums and supervised and trained many upcoming therapists. Jennifer loves getting to know people and participating in seeing them grow. She absolutely loves her work and is dedicated to constantly learning new ways to help people.

In session, Jennifer works to create an environment of growth and accountability for her patients. She has an eclectic mix of science based strategies and her approach varies quite a bit depending on the person. Jennifer believes that customizing the therapy experience honors the person and the therapeutic relationship. She values understanding people and where they are coming from. She believes in direct communication and that accountability without shaming is key to anyone's change process. Overall, Jennifer believes that change is possible and that having the right kind of support can make all the difference.

At the heart of all she does, is patient care. Jennifer finds happiness as a clinician by continuing to personally work side by side as partners with her patients. She believes the patient-therapist relationship is real and this allows her patients to feel l comfortable with being vulnerable. Jennifer strives to ensure that patients feel heard and are involved in the treatment process. She educates and challenges in language that makes sense without causing shame or feelings of judgement. Jennifer works hard to make her patients feel support and to give them tools and skills to move forward and through whatever they are struggling with. To put it simply, Jennifer will believe in you and hope for you even when you don't know how to do it for yourself.


Message to clients

Hi! Are you ready for the next chapter in your story? Are you willing to get raw and get to work? Change sometimes takes confronting some pretty uncomfortable stuff. But along the way, quality therapy will connect you to so many worthwhile things both within you and around you. You will feel heard, understood and validated. You will learn to feel emotion, to accept, to cope and to just be. Burdens will lighten, tensions will ease. You will connect to pieces of you that you had forgotten or maybe never even knew were there. And when you do, you will gain confidence and begin to make progress on goals you never even imagined. You will have a confidante, a cheerleader, an accountability partner and a person that believes in you no matter what. You will have nurturing compassion and a firm kick in butt when its needed! Therapy is hard because change is hard. But both are worth it because they are investment in the greatest resource you will ever have in life, YOU! So, lets laugh, vent, cry, skill up and make this life we have worth living!

All I ask is that you bring honest effort and an open mind to give a bit of trust to the process.
