Email about Jennifer

A native of Chicago, Jenny is not new to improving the lives of people. She is best described as being down to earth and easy to connect. While having over a decade of experience in therapeutic settings, she is energized working with the families and professionals of the City.

With adults, Jenny’s specialty is addressing anxiety, corporate work burnout & stress, trauma, and life transitions such as change of job or tough life decision making.  Recently she has specialized in working with returning Soldiers and Veterans with transitioning back into the work force. She also works with women going through pregnancy challenges and post-partum depression.

She likes to tailor the therapy based on the interests of her guests while still providing practical techniques for daily use. Most guests who have worked with Jenny have learned skills like grounding techniques, cognitive thought restructuring, relaxation, and relationship enhancement.

Her primary therapeutic tools include Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Exposure Therapy, and Mindfulness. Jenny’s guests are often learning multiple skills and tools while focusing on their strengths.

Living healthy has always been important to her and being a vegetarian for most of her life is a large reflection of her love for animals and wellness. Jenny believes in promoting individuals to take the steps towards a new life for themselves.  She received her Masters degree in Clinical Psychology from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. She was also named WillisCC’s Therapist of the Year 2012. Guests experience her to be soothing, sweet, and informative.
