Hello! Thank you for beginning this journey. If this is your first time in therapy, welcome. Getting started can be tough, especially talking to someone you don't know about things that make you uncomfortable, sad, angry, or embarrassed. I maintain a nonjudgmental space and a process that is introspective. Therapy is difficult sometimes and at other times it can be an enjoyable part of your week. I encourage you to express your thoughts freely and without apology. Whether you had a not-so-great counseling experience in the past, or you’re returning because prior experiences helped you trust therapy and its benefits, you are welcome here. I look forward to working together. Jennifer
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In your first therapy session, you can expect a welcoming environment, active listening, empathy, confidentiality, goal setting, and collaboration to begin your journey towards healing and growth.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with 15+ years of experience. My focus includes women’s issues, career concerns, codependency, life transitions, grief, and anxiety. I'm a neutral party who listens without judgment and gives honest feedback, and I will help you identify the patterns that you want to change.
