Jennifer began her working career in the field of cosmetology, where she inadvertently recognized her love for counseling and building strong, trusting and supportive relationships. Through working as a cosmetologist and her life experiences – the passion for a greater understanding of how our past and beliefs, can impact how we manage emotions and shape our behaviors and actions – has evolved. Thus, growing an admiration for the Mental Health field as a whole.
Jennifer went back to college after 20 year of owning and operating a Beauty Salon, to obtain a Master’s Degree in Adlerian Psychotherapy and Alcohol and Drug Counseling from Adler Graduate School. She is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). She loves to connect her Spiritual beliefs – Christian faith with mental health practices and effortlessly demonstrates nonjudgmental encouragement…Isaiah 40:31 King James Version 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
She values a person centered approach with a focus on empowerment of the individual’s strengths. She is currently working with clients with a variety of issues, upholding her vision – to see individuals work through life’s challenges and become overcomers!
