I am an individual and couple’s therapist working teens and adults. I have a great deal of experience with trans identity and feel an affinity with all marginalized communities. I draw from a wide range of modalities including client-centered therapy, attachment theory, The Gottman Method, family and relationship art therapy, poly-aware approaches, HAES-aware therapy, harm reduction psychotherapy, breathwork, and the use of music.
I am well versed in community-based art therapy. I hold space for people to write their own life stories. I co-create a container for clients to share what they need to in our sessions, moving through their therapeutic journeys with stable support and validation.
I believe that by learning to more authentically live their truth, each person can simultaneously create healing for themselves and those around them.

More About Jennifer
I am the daughter of Soviet Jewish immigrants who came to Odawa, Ojibwe, and Potawatomi homelands (Chicago, IL) when I was a baby. I went to art school and then to art therapy and counseling school as a way to formalize the journey I’ve been on since my first memories – to support others in deciding what their personal journey means. In that time I have enjoyed being part of a community art collective in Og’a P’Ogeh (Santa Fe, NM) and collaborating on community murals. I have a great deal of experience with trans identity, and feel affinity with all marginalized communities. In addition to meeting with people for therapy, I love to paint, mix records, and make electronic music. I also love nature, dancing, and animals.
In therapy with me you can expect to have your identity, culture, autonomy, relationship style, and personal choices respected. I recognize that there are many ways to live a fulfilling life and that people have their own unique voice and story that leads them to a more authentic sense of self. I draw from a wide range of modalities including client-centered therapy, attachment theory, family and relationship art therapy, poly-aware approaches, HAES-aware therapy, harm reduction psychotherapy, breathework, and the use of music. I also acknowledge the fact that there are different effective healing traditions that far predate modern psychotherapy. I am excited to work with you!
