Professional statement

Jennifer's main focuses are working with Trauma, Reproductive and Pregnancy Related Issues, Anxiety, Grief and Loss, Highly Sensitive People, Life Transitions, Relationship Issues, and Identity.

Jennifer's main modalities are Gestalt Therapy, EMDR, and Maternal Mental Health. Gestalt Therapy is a client-centered therapy that focuses on the present. As a Gestalt Therapist she offers a holistic, mindful, and integrative experience. Jennifer also works with trauma and is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to alleviate the distress that is associated with traumatic memories. Additionally, she sees women who are dealing with infertility, miscarriage, anxiety of pregnancy, the baby blues, Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders (these include mood or anxiety disorders that occur during pregnancy or postpartum), and Perinatal Grief & Loss (including neonatal death or stillbirth), or adjusting to becoming a new mother.

She was also trained in Multicultural Counseling at Columbia University. This has given her the skill set to understand how all aspects of your identity are informing how you see and engage with the world, how the world has informed your experience, and ways to have a healthy relationship with all parts of your self. She works with individuals from diverse ethnic, racial, and cultural backgrounds.

Due to her years of experience, various work settings, and continued training she utilizes her knowledge of Grief and Loss Counseling (including Complicated Grief), Family Systems, Internal Family Systems for Couples Counseling, and Strength Based Counseling.


Message to clients

I know how difficult it can be to admit to yourself that you need or want help, and how much harder it is to then reach out for help. I do believe that for any type of therapy to work that you first have to find a therapist that is a match for you. Please know that it is my priority to help you to feel safe and comfortable. I offer a supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can have the space to work through the challenges that you are facing.
