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 so glad you’re visiting me and that you’re taking a step in your healing process.

Therapy can have a bad reputation.  Sometimes people think if you go to therapy it means you’re really messed up, and the focus of therapy is on what’s wrong.

For me it’s quite the opposite.  Therapy is about owning your talents and your gifts.  It's about Claiming Your Voice.  If you go to therapy I see you as an emotional warrior - strengthening your ability to break intergenerational patterns, cultivate greater love and compassion for self and others, in order to move through the world with the most positive impact.

We all have challenges and pain, we all have strengths.  While therapy is a safe place to explore your darkest shadows, it is equally a place to be spontaneous, creative, and free.

I call myself a holistic therapist because I have a mind/body/spirit approach to health and wellness.  It is essential for my clients to have an embodied experience of healing.

My goal is for you to feel empowered to learn from your past, live in the present, and create your future.  Together we transform struggle into growth and positive action.  This transformation ripples outward so that any healing you do brings more positive energy into the world.

The process of working with me begins with a phone call or free in person consultation.  This is where we explore why you’re considering therapy and whether my approach is the best fit for you.

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

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