As a Child Mental Health Specialist, Jen operates from the fundamental philosophy that a child’s natural language is play. She creates an open and accepting space for children to communicate in many different ways through play therapy. With teens, Jen builds strong relationships with validation and empathy -- and teens appreciate Jen’s call-it-as-it-is bluntness and humor.
Jen enjoys creating things in her spare time - painting, crafting, fort building, baking and strumming on her ukulele.
