Check some of the great reviews:

Jen and I spent less than a year together. During that time, she helped me achieve recovery from my eating disorder.
Jen has an entire bookshelf of books and workbooks for clients. They helped me so much.
I highly recommend Jen as a counselor. She completely changed my life.
I have been working with Jen for the past 4 months and have learned more about myself in our short time together than I have my entire life! I’ve worked with other therapists in the past and could not recommend Jen more. She’s thoughtful, insightful and deeply cares about your needs and goals. She’s adaptive to all different kinds of styles, whether you’re the kind of person who needs homework after a session.
