Jennie works with individuals and couples of all ages, genders, sexualities and cultural identities. She has experience working with adolescents, LGBTQIA communities, people living with chronic mental illness as well as those experiencing stress due to life transitions. She comes from the mindset that every person is an expert of themselves and believes therapy can be a helpful tool to connect folks back to their intrinsic wisdom of how to heal.
When working with individuals, Jennie's approach combines mindfulness-based practices, motivational interviewing and a combination of various modalities depending on what each client needs. Therapy is a playground for interpersonal relationships. It can be hard to set boundaries, ask for needs or express challenging emotions, and therapy can serve as a place to practice these skills to eventually use them outside of therapy as well.
When working with couples, Jennie utilizes elements of the Gottman Method of relational work. She also recognizes how sociopolitical identities could impact couples' dynamics and is passionate about helping them uncover ways they have unconsciously taken on roles that do not serve them. She helps couples gain insight into problematic dynamics and works with partners to create a path moving forward.
Jennie's practice is informed by trainings on social justice and anti-oppression, trauma-informed counseling, and motivational interviewing as well as her identities as a white, queer, Jewish, gender-nonconforming clinician. She is passionate about people in the fullness of our stories.
LGBTQIA, gender, and sexuality topics - Exploring topics of sexuality, gender, and identity; coping with discrimination and oppression; navigating relationship, family, and cultural challenges
Anxiety - Coping with excessive worry, nervousness, or stress; intense discomfort in social settings (social anxiety); sudden and intense feelings of panic (panic disorder)
Relationship issues - Understanding one’s wants and needs in relationships; exploring patterns of interaction, addressing concerns, and strengthening satisfaction in relationships and dating
Shame Resilience - Often times shame, the voice in our head that tells us we are bad or unloveable, gets in the way of us having fufilling, meaningful relationships. Through increasing our shame resilience, we can increase our tolerance for mistakes and hearing feedback, which can lead to healthier personal and work relationships and greater overall life satisfaction.
Life transitions - Coping with difficult or impactful life changes, such as moving to a new area, relationship transitions, child rearing, or career changes; learning self-care to better manage resulting stress
Navigating oppression, privilege and labels - It can be challenging to figure out what we believe about ourselves authentically and what concepts and labels have been assigned to us by society, our families or by friends or partners. I can help you get clearer on your own inner voice to distinguish what your own boundaries and needs are.
