Hello, I am Jennifer. I am a licensed therapist with over 25 years of experience supporting people of all ages through various transitions and challenges. I offer a unique approach to mental health that integrates clinical therapy with moderate physical exercise in the great outdoors. I focus on helping people with anxiety, depression, life transitions, stress/burnout, infertility and alcohol misuse while increasing nourishing habits such as exercise, sleep, nutrition, and other practices that reduce symptoms and calm the nervous system. Have you ever wished you could get in-person therapy without having to sit in an office with the therapist? Do you feel too busy to schedule both therapy and exercise into one day and wish the two could be combined? If so, then "walk and talk" could be a good fit for you. I offer the opportunity to receive counseling or coaching while outside in nature and moving your body. Research demonstrates that both exercise and spending time outdoors in sunlight and green spaces provides a reduction in symptoms associated with depression, anxiety, and stress while improving mood overall. My unique "walk and talk" method addresses all three aspects of healing and growth: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Have you found yourself wondering if you are drinking too much and/or too often? Are you tired of experiencing low energy, anxiety, depression, disrupted sleep, sugar cravings, etc. and you wish you had a coach to support you as you navigate a new way of living alcohol free? If you are sober curious, I am here to help!

I appreciate you taking the time to learn about me and consider working together. As there are likely many therapists who can accompany you on your journey, here’s a bit about me, which may help you make a choice. I have worked with many people navigating anxiety, depression, stressors, life transitions, trauma, substance use, learning & neurological differences, and relationship issues. If we work together, you can expect to learn more about your authentic self – who you are at the core. I am curious to identify the unique gifts you bring to the world and illuminate how you can use those to address challenges and opportunities in your life. I will listen intently, be curious about your thoughts and feelings, and respect you are an expert in your own life. Whether your decision to seek a therapist is something you’ve considered for a long time or a decision just made, you may be experiencing a mix of thoughts and feelings. Perhaps some vulnerability asking for support from and confiding in someone you don’t yet know, maybe uncertainty about how therapy will help you. I view the very act of reading my profile as an act of courage and hope.

Together, we will work to explore areas of your life that are challenging to set you on a path of happiness, fulfillment, and purpose. Are you tired of relapsing?? Tired of struggling to stay sober??

As human beings we experience a seemingly infinite amount of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. And while I am an optimist at heart, I know that life can often feel lonely, unfair, and overwhelming. Trying to navigate these difficult times can be stressful and confusing. You don't have to go through it alone. I believe everyone has the right and the capability to live the kind of life they want, whatever that may look like. I view Therapy as a very human process, as well as a very sacred one. As your therapist, my goal is for our conversations to offer a sense of relief and perspective, while helping foster healthy self-exploration and personal growth. Through supportive conversations, I aim to help you gain a deeper understanding and connection to the values within yourself and the world that surrounds you. My hope is that through this process you will find a life that is authentic, and meaningful...and that you truly enjoy.

I approach our first session with wanting to know exactly where you are and what you need today. This is because people usually book a therapy session while in some kind of emotional pain, or with a problem to solve. I assure you that you will feel more peaceful and calm with just one session, and you will leave knowing that you will be able to solve what is going on. We tend to be harsh and critical of ourselves thinking that will promote change when that only causes us to procrastinate and feel depression and anxiety. To address this I offer you my book endorsed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on self-forgiveness- just ask me about it if you are interested! I offer you my podcast- All Things Therapy, which can be found everywhere podcasts are streamed. It is a mental health and wellness-focused podcast with over 360 episodes that may address something you are dealing with. I would love to work with you here on Grow, so please schedule.

I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice, in California. My approach to therapy is commonsense, based in Dialog, reflective listening, mindfulness based cognitive therapy in conjunction with breath work, journaling and dream journaling and practicing being present. I take my clients seriously, I take our work together seriously, but I don’t take myself too seriously: my primary purpose is to be of service, to be useful to my clients. Our experiences are a map of where we have been, and what it was like. Our ‘stories’ are a mixture of moments we are proud of, grateful for and moments which we would rather not repeat. Through the therapeutic dialog we can come to understand why we make the choices we make and have an opportunity to discover new choices and decide how our story unfolds from the present moment into the future; with courage and kindness toward ourselves we can reach for the life we want to live and be the person we want to be. By the time my clients ‘graduate’ from therapy they will have developed tools which will continue being useful long after our work together has concluded. Personal responsibility and accountability are cornerstones of freedom.

I am currently registered with the Board of Behavioral Sciences as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Along with providing therapy, I am a Mental Health Director, clinical supervisor, and mental health training facilitator. I have worked with clients dealing with an array of situations such as relationship problems, substance abuse, depression, anxiety, ADHD, trauma survivors, at-risk youth behavioral problems, and different forms of personality disorders to name a few. I strongly believe that everyone has a voice and deserves to be heard. I enjoy walking side by side with my clients through the healing process and giving them the encouragement and tools needed to achieve their highest quality of life and strengthen their interpersonal relationships. I am also a Certified Integrative Mental Health Professional (CIMHP). As a CIMHP, I believe that food is medicine and use a nutritional and integrative approach to treating mental health “dis-ease” by providing individualized nutritional recommendations and food plans in order to significantly relieve problematic mental health symptoms for people with anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, and bipolar. Along with this, I have experience as a first responder and providing Advanced Life Support in the field allowed me to have first-hand experience of what first responders witness and go through in their careers. For this reason, I also enjoy working with first responders to help them process traumatic events and assist in preventing burnout.
