With Jen's guidance and support, I have made huge strides in managing my depression and anxiety and in addressing triggers and stressors that I have wrestled with for years. Jen has empowered and enabled me to embrace the process of self-awareness and healing and to learn from my feelings rather than be controlled by them. Jen is remarkably perceptive, and her compassion and investment in me creates a comfortable, stress-free space.

When I look back over my time with Jen and Claiming My Voice, I see subtle yet amazing shifts in myself.  I came into CMV with very clear beliefs of who I was and was not, what I could and could not do,  where I could and could not change.  Mostly, my focus was on the negatives.  Jen has helped me see that realities attach to beliefs not people.  By exploring my belief patterns, she’s helped open doors, windows and skylights onto new ways of viewing the world and claiming my rightful place and voice in it.  I have a lot more curiosity about the future rather than my default position of fear and defensiveness.  And, the combination of group and individual work is so synergistic.  I have a group of women who act as my mirror, my teacher, my listener.  I know I’ll have Jen and these ladies in my life for a long time to come (maybe forever?!), and that is immensely comforting.  I highly recommend Jen and her CMV program.

For me, CMV means participating in a process in which am learning how to give and receive support, acceptance, and at times uncomfortable (but always helpful/productive) feedback. In this group, I experience unconditional support and (dare I say) love. This concept is hard for me - to believe that someone (let alone 6 other someones) could care about me - even when I say the "wrong" things and am at my lowest points. I am learning how I can get in my own way and I am realizing that the Walls I put up to protect me are doing just the opposite. I am realizing how I have become accustomed to viewing other women as a potential threat or competition versus as potential tribal sisters (Sounds corny when I say that, but it's true). My journey with this group thus far has been amazingly helpful in terms of understanding myself, embracing change, accepting myself and others, and applying what I learn/experience in group to the "outside world”.

welcome.

I'm here to offer you deep healing and transformation.

Relief from your symptoms, long lasting change, pleasure - these are all within your reach.

It's possible to heal from old wounds, to rise above trauma, to learn from symptoms.  It's possible to resolve conflict in a healthy way.  It's possible to live the life you really want, rather than the life you feel you "should" be living. 

It's possible to get unstuck.

I'm here to help you get unstuck by facing your challenges in a creative, meaningful, manageable way.  I'm here to help you learn how to move from all-or-nothing, rigid patterns to flexibility and choice.  I'm here to help you identify and pursue what brings you authentic joy; the kind of joy that not only serves you, but has a positive impact on all those who cross your path.

Since I was a child people have been sharing their innermost thoughts and feelings with me.  Listening empathically and connecting with the deeper meaning of words and actions has been a part of me like breathing.  As I developed, I followed my path of integrating mind, body and spirit.  It is from this place that I offer you holistic psychotherapy.

Holistic psychotherapy assumes there is a connection and cooperation between mind, body, and spirit.  It centers around understanding what nourishes us and what depletes us.  Through this therapy, you learn how to listen to the wisdom of your mind, your body, and develop your intuition.  Those who are already holistically minded and those who are new to this approach equally benefit from what I offer.    

If you are tired of repeating the same patterns, tired of trying to figure it out by yourself, and ready to commit to your journey forward, you and I can chart new territory.  My office is a safe place where we respect exactly who you are now while creating new pathways for your future.  Together we transform struggle into growth and positive action. 

The issues we can address together include but are not limited to:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Grief and loss
  • Life transitions
  • Unhealthy relationship patterns
  • Family issues
  • Trauma 

The process of working with me begins with a collaborative phone call where we discuss your needs and my approach.  Shifts begin for you at this moment, as every conversation we have inspires greater insight and awareness.  

I am here for you when you're ready.  I am here to support you in living with honesty and integrity.  I invite you to call me to explore if this kind of transformational journey is right for you.

In Gratitude,

Jen
