PRACTICE IS OPEN FOR NEW CLIENTS
In-person sessions available
Education: LLB, MSW, RSW
Background: Jennifer’s background working with individuals and couples experiencing complex and high conflict family challenges led her to completing her MSW in 2015. Jennifer has since worked in community mental health, schools, a provincial agency and private practice.
Specialty: Supporting couples and families experiencing difficult transitions and challenges to their relationships, including repairing ruptures, fostering communication, and issues related to parenting and navigating transitions, such as separation and divorce.
Approach: Jennifer’s work with clients is relational, anti-oppressive and trauma-informed and is grounded in interpersonal connection. She has an integrated approach that draws upon attachment theory, emotionally focused therapy (EFT) with couples and families, as well as principles of mindfulness-based stress reduction.
Perspective: Jennifer believes that distress in relationships occurs where there are repeated patterns of behaviour and dynamics that undermine feelings of safety, security and closeness. When individuals slow down and express what is really going on, new connections based in strengthened communication, improved problem solving and renewed feelings of safety and security can occur.
