Jenny’s philosophy is that people have an enormous capacity to grow and change in amazing ways. Her style is relational, empowering, and safe.
In the context of an honest, compassionate relationship, Jenny helps her clients move beyond their symptoms, empowering them to live life fully and abundantly.
Specifically, Jenny is trained in:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a type of therapy that challenges and reframes destructive beliefs and thought distortions (including body image distortions) which can result in depression and anxiety.
Insight-Oriented Therapies which encourage people to break free from old habits and behavior patterns by looking inward and to the past to figure out their emotions, motivations, and self-talk. Through improved self-awareness, people are better able to challenge negative thoughts and work through difficult emotions in healthy ways.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) which teaches new skills to help people cope with painful emotions, get through crises, and to deal more effectively with others.
Experiential Therapies which use role-play, art, and other creative means to free clients from unresolved feelings, leaving more room to live life in the moment and to experience happiness and joy.
Family-Based Therapy (FBT) or Maudsley Approach which empowers and coaches families in re-feeding adolescents who struggle with Anorexia or Bulimia (see Maudsleyparents.org for more information.)
Habit Reversal Training which is a behavioral treatment that addresses a wide variety of repetitive behavior disorders such as Trichotillomania, compulsive skin picking and Tourette’s Syndrome.
Jenny tailors her approach according to the needs, preferences and strengths of each client.
