Professional statement

Jennifer Dukes is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA who specializes in both individual and couples counseling. Her one-on-one work with clients often revolves around tackling issues of chronic over-worrying and rumination, with the intention of developing self-empowerment that feels authentic to them.

Given the fast-paced nature of modern life (and especially so in the Bay Area), Jennifer understands what it’s like to feel stretched too thin; many of her clients hold themselves to unrealistic standards and feel like they’ve failed themselves and others when they don’t meet these lofty goals. She helps clients grow awareness of negative self-talk and disarm harmful habits so as to replace them with a kinder, more self-compassionate inner dialogue.

When working with couples, Jennifer creates a safe, engaging space where each partner is able to better attune to themselves and their partner, and ultimately develop sustainably healthy communication patterns.

Jennifer’s office is currently teletherapy only for clients in the area and across the state.


Message to clients

You try to manage things and come up against barriers. You feel anxious and angry when things do not turn out the way you want. Every time you're close to figuring something out, you feel too stressed and freeze. You are not sure what to do or what steps to take. Your significant other gets upset because you keep talking about the same issue over and over again. You don't even know if therapy can help, but you're willing to do whatever it takes.

You want to be at ease and let things go. You want to enjoy life. Imagine having coping skills to use to be able to complete projects and show up to life. I can help you get there.

Featuring 24/7 online scheduling, video appointments, and the ability to complete paperwork online, I make the process of starting therapy easy to fit into your life. You can begin seeing improvements in your life almost immediately, so visit my website to learn more about how I can help.
