These last few years have felt challenging. Sometimes it feels like you are trudging through mud, your boots clinging firmly to the ground. Traumatic experiences have shaped how you see the world and perhaps how the world sees you. When you get stuck, it's hard to know your authentic self.  You may struggle with motivation, identity, depression, and anxiety. When these issues arise, you may feel shame, sadness, and even hopelessness. Perhaps these feelings have led you to feel like you don't belong, or you aren't good enough. You yearn to find your sense of purpose. You want to navigate your life with ease and joy. We all need help from time to time, not just in connecting with others but to reconnect with ourselves. The good news is you are not your stories-you can change the narrative to lead a happier, healthier, and more productive life! You can get yourself unstuck.

Jennifer is trained in Brainspotting, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, CBT, and Mindfulness Based-CBT. 

I believe it takes a village to be healthy, meaning I use a holistic framework. This includes mind, body, energy, and spirit. My approach is a "bio-psycho-social" one, where together we can explore your goals, choices, and relationships in a full spectrum. Together we can explore thoughts, emotions, habits, lifestyle, and relationships from this all-encompassing framework. I also use functional medicine (known as nutritional psychology) to explore the physical aspects of mental health. As a nutritional therapist, I will look at food, your connection to your body, mindful eating, and the beliefs we have that lead to emotionally charged stress eating. My background in functional medicine and in my Food and Spirit practice, I can incorporate aspects of creativity, life balance, gratitude, intuition, your communication with others, connection, mindfulness, and life purpose. 

If this approach resonates, please reach out to me and together we can create a plan to release you of emotional pain to find joy and purpose again. Trauma doesn't just affect mental health, but it can incapacitate our bodies. I can assist you in healing both the mind and the body using nutrition, diet, and lifestyle interventions
I earned my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from the University of Western States in Portland, OR. I had my own practice as a functional nutritional therapist and Food and Spirit Practitioner. After participating in a leaky gut study and seeing my own health completely transform, it led me to working as an enzyme practice advisor for Transformation Enzymes.  My Bachelor of Fine Arts is from the California Institute of the Arts.  I have been a professional theater actor for over 30 years.  Some of my hobbies include cycling, weightlifting, seeing theater and films, writing, and traveling- all of which bring me joy!

Outside of the office, I love going to the theater and seeing films, I work out daily and love to weight lift, and traveling is in my blood. My goal is to act in a play a year and get back to singing!
