Jennifer lives in Vancouver, Washington with her family and enjoys the summer sun, music of all kinds, a warm cracklng fire while sitting next to her big yellow lab, Hank Louis Nelson Barber, and trying to learn how to have a green thumb with her indoor plants and outdoor gardens. Jennifer is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, is a Licensed Independant Clinical Social Worker in the state of Washington, and graduated from Portland State University, School of Social Work, in 2000. She is also thrilled to be able to offer Clinical Supervision for those working toward their licensure.
For the past 16 years she has practiced mostly in settings with individuals and families experiencing crisis, on a short term basis. Jennifer enjoys guiding those who feel "stuck" and provides a safe space to explore feelings with honesty. There is no judgement here or worries about burdening someone close to you with "your troubles". Jennifer offers the tools you need to move forward in your life with happiness and comfort.
If you are expecting action-oriented counseling in Vancouver Washington, you have come to the right place. Jennifer will utilize humor, mindfulness, and will help you establish a clear direction from the very beginning. Her personal and professional goal is that clients will feel safe, accepted and ready to be honest with themselves.
We have such a small amount of time in this world. Why live with unhappiness? Let Jennifer help you move past this unhappiness and find a new path which will lead to a better life for you and your family.
