Professional statement

Jennifer is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Houston, TX. Jennifer’s practice supports those who feel stuck in their lives - whether that’s stuck in a negative thought pattern, stuck in a past experience, stuck in a toxic relationship, or stuck in their developmental growth. Jennifer specializes in working with those who have experienced trauma and dissociation, as well as those who feel depressed or anxious to a point where they feel overwhelmed with daily life.

During a session, Jennifer may draw from Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy as well as Somatic Experiencing therapy. Both types of therapy believe that trauma is stored within the brain and the body, and an individual who hopes to recover from trauma must work through their stored emotions and beliefs, and physical reactions. Jennifer may help clients to develop a more curious and flexible view of their thoughts and feelings, or support clients in finding individualized coping skills. She also recognizes that people’s lives are filled with relationships and often asks clients to speak about their interactions with loved ones emphasizing perspective-taking and connection. Jennifer helps clients reflect on their relationships, both past and present, to increase awareness of repeating patterns and possible re-enactments.

Jennifer earned her Bachelors degree from the University of Louisiana in Lafayette, Louisiana and her Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Houston. Her sessions are warm and invite new perspectives, making them especially helpful for those who are in therapy for the first time. Her eclectic style draws from numerous psychological modalities, allowing each client to be seen as the unique individual they are.


Message to clients

People seek therapy for a myriad of reasons, and in my experience, the common denominator is pain; seeking relief from emotional pain. Your pain may be about your sense of self, certain relationships, a traumatic event, ongoing attachment trauma or existential angst, to name a few. We might look at how you are protecting yourself and if those methods are helpful and adaptive. If they are, great; keep doing it! If they aren’t, we would examine other possible strategies.

I thoroughly enjoy getting to know each of you and understanding how you experience yourself, others and the world around you. Once we have learned more about each other, we will work collaboratively throughout the therapeutic process. I will challenge maladaptive patterns of thinking and relating and offer alternative perspectives. I do not make decisions for you, as you are the one who has to live with your decisions, whether positive or negative consequences.

Initially, I always recommend weekly therapy sessions so we can use that momentum to create change. As therapy progresses, the frequency of sessions will change. I am an out-of-network provider and I know that therapy can be expensive. I hope you can recognize the value in investing in yourself and your emotional health and well-being, which also affects your physical health. I look forward to hearing from you!
