About Me

Hello!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Wisconsin with over 22 years’ experience providing direct care for new parents and infants, children, adolescents, young adults, adults and families. I have worked at an inpatient residential treatment center for adolescents and a community mental health clinic. I am also a consultant for the Wisconsin association of infant mental health (WI-AIMH).
In 1999, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a Master’s degree in mental health counseling. In addition, I have specialized training through the University of Wisconsin Madison in infant early childhood and family mental health. I am also trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), child parent psychotherapy (CPP) and reflective practices such as yoga and meditation.
It is my passion and honor to be a guide for people in my community in finding their path to a life worth living. I encourage a whole life approach where we will focus on you as a person versus any diagnosis that you may have been given. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental space that welcomes people of diverse backgrounds. I hope that when we talk, you feel safe, supported, and empowered to make lasting changes.
When I am not counseling, I am a parent of a teenager, training for RAGNAR road or trail race, doing yoga, playing viola, learning, reading and crafting. I try to practice what I teach. Change and growth take effort beginning with small intentional steps. We aren’t moving backward as long as we decide to move forward. In seeking counseling, I know you are ready to take the steps to create change even if you are not sure where to begin. I look forward to working with you to build the life you want to live while healing from previous challenges.

Psychotherapy is above all a collaborative approach with the goal of helping you to achieve your goals in a healthy manner. Together, at your speed, we will discover your strengths and perhaps even find some new talents

I found Jennifer to be very easy to talk to. We’ve not known her for long but she has quickly proven how adept she is at dealing with my teenager who looks forward to speaking with her and finds her guidance very helpful indeed. Despite being separated by distance, she has always managed to respond efficiently and as required.

Professional, personable, understanding and respectful. Not much else you can ask for. I’m very pleased to be working with her.
