Jennifer has been in the mental health field for over ten years and in that time she has had the privilege of working with a variety of clients. She started out by working with recently released inmates, moved onto working with families who have DCPP involvement due to substance abuse, and then worked with veterans. In her last position, she worked at an outpatient facility at a psychiatric hospital. She specializes in addiction and the turmoil that comes with it, be it anxiety, depression, bipolar or trauma.
She stays up to date on the latest modalities of treatment and enjoys seminars and reading in her free time. She tries to practice mindfulness by walking her two rescue dogs. She believes the salt air is healing and will go to the beach year-round to recharge.

Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
I believe people need to tell their story and put their pieces back together. I am passionate about empowering my clients to do just that. I take great pride in my work, as I believe it takes courage to ask for help. Witnessing people getting better keeps me motivated and passionate.
