As a client of Jenifer’s, you will notice her openness to how you want to go about creating your personal transformation. She pulls from many palettes when conducting therapy and is considered eclectic in her theoretical orientation. Jenifer practices from a non-judgmental, meeting-clients-where-they-are at approach. Her goal for each session is to help you view challenges from a different lens. Jenifer likes for her clients to leave their sessions excited about positive change.
