Emphasizing the concept that we all suffer and that there is a way out of suffering, Jennifer incorporate mindfulness, body awareness, and Buddhist psychology in her work with clients struggling with trichotillomania and body-focused repetitive behaviors. Her integrative approach helps clients make sense of their situation while also gaining a deep connection to their own innate wisdom and personal truths.
Jennifer began her career in a wilderness camping program for troubled youth. She learned quickly how resilient people are (and how to pitch a tent in a hot minute when it is raining). Since then, she has worked in school systems, hospitals, physician’s offices and private practice. She has been with Lifeologie for over ten years.
Jennifer is still humbled by the strength, courage and hope she sees in her clients. She sees her job as offering a safe space, a few suggestions and a whole lot of support as clients embrace the truth of their lives. With a mixture of body awareness work, mindfulness training, meditation and radical self-acceptance and forgiveness, Jen works with the client to connect the dots so life can be not only more manageable but lived fully.
Jennifer received mindfulness training from the Institute of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy and incorporates the mindfulness practices of compassion and loving kindness in her life and work. Using these philosophies and practices, she addresses the issues of anxiety, depression, body-focused repetitive behavior, trichotillomania, grief, loneliness, fear, shame, stuckness and overall life challenges.
