Beliefs and Values

Jennifer’s therapeutic work and clinical supervision are rooted in a strengths based and person-centered approach. She focuses on tapping into peoples’ capacity for change, and assists individuals to ‘re-author’ their life story. Jennifer approaches individuals from a holistic, non-judgmental standpoint, and aims to respect all beliefs and social differences.

Jennifer employs a multifaceted approach to best support the unique, individual needs of each client.
