EMBODIED LIFE THERAPY CENTER
Hello, my name is Jennifer.
I am a personable, bookish therapist with a passion for learning and a love for new adventures such as traipsing through jungles or starting both cello and piano lessons in my 40's. I have more planners, post-it’s, and habit trackers then I’ll ever need, and my growing book collection has raised the eyebrows of my wife more than a few times.
As a sensitive child growing up in a chaotic environment, and taking on way more responsibility than I was capable of, I know what it’s like to become a people-pleasing adult with a pervading sense that something is wrong with you. As a child, born at a time when girl's neurodiversity was mislabeled with things like being "too sensitive or shy", I also know the relief of discovering there was nothing actually "wrong" to begin with. Despite these early challenges, I have gone on to create a fulfilling life for myself and I absolutely love helping others do the same. I work with people who have learned to survive by quieting their needs, being cautious of relationships, feeling overly responsible for everyone else, and learning to take up less space; but are now ready and eager to make the changes in their life that will lead them to rediscover their worthiness, sense of agency, and meaningful connection with others.
Being an Enneagram 5, I am overly passionate about learning and have training in EMDR, Brainspotting, and Somatic therapies. I particularly love and utilize Internal Family Systems (IFS), NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), and integration of non-ordinary states therapies- all of which I integrate into my sessions, but, I won’t talk jargon & theory with you, unless you want. Being specialized in these trauma-informed modalities alongside the absolute reverence I hold for fellow queer, neurodivergent, and the intersection of "othered" identities, I now help others explore the roots and tangles of their own life experiences, heal the wounding, and create a life of meaning.
