“One of the best children therapists I ever worked with!”
“I referred adults, children, and families to Jenny for nearly two years. She was magic with our young clients and their families! She was an absolute favorite among our referred patients. Jenny is beloved by her clients and their families; she is a refreshing teacher, and a gifted therapist. I highly recommend her.”
“Jenny is extremely intelligent and thoughtful, and she is energetic, confident, supportive, contributing, spiritual, bridge-building, fun and a truly remarkable person. She is emotionally and psychologically healthy and mature.”
“She was an outstanding clinician working with children, their families, and a substance dependent adult population of Drug Court. I can attest to her dependability, excellent communication skills, and exceptional gifts as a clinician. In addition to these qualities, she is fun to work with.”
“Jenny is wise and daring, lighting up the world with humor. She takes complex information and converts it with innovative, out-of-the-box thinking.”
“The knowledge that I have gained from her has shaped the way I live my life. I feel I am a better person because of having the honor to have been taught by her and to know her. Aside from her exceptional teaching, she has been a wonderful mentor in my decisions as a professional.”
"I spent twenty years seeking some sort of mental health and stability, so by the time I decided to try EMDR with Jenny, I was prepared for it to fail like all the therapy and medications I tried before - in fact, I think I expected it. After EMDR, however, the freedom from my trauma has been so astonishing that there's no way for me to fully describe it, and while I've certainly got several changes to make, my post-treatment clarity and awareness allows me to actually realize and create those changes. For the first time in my life, I feel a sense of control."
"I have perspective on what happened when I was eight years old and I feel so much better that it was not my fault and I did fight. Knowing this, I can deal with what is in my life right now. The thought of going to therapy was scary. Jenny was not afraid to hear the details of my worst day. She brought me energy, joy, and humor. I never thought I could laugh while doing trauma work. Jenny was an awesome help to me. I have a lot of love and appreciation for our time together."
