Jennifer’s goal as a counselor is to create a safe place for hurting individuals so they can truly feel seen and heard. Jennifer seeks to help them create new stories of hope while identifying what they still need-whether it’s practical tools, life-giving relationships, or new perspectives. She supports her clients as they take one step at a time to meet those needs, and walk in the freedom that God desires for them. While working in the context of narrative therapy, Jennifer draws from other counseling methodologies such as DBT, ACT, and solution-focused therapy to achieve this goal.
Jennifer counsels adults and adolescents struggling with depression, grief, anxiety, OCD, trauma, and relationship issues. She also provides career counseling and has a passion for helping individuals in transition discover how new vocations fit into their life and calling.
Jennifer has a Master of Arts in Counseling from B. H. Carroll Theological Institute and a Bachelor of Science in Education from Texas A&M University. She has additional training in career counseling, life coaching, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. She is also a certified SYMBIS Assessment Facilitator. Prior to Restoration, Jennifer worked in adult education and nonprofit ministry, assisting adults and adolescents and transition.
