I work with couples/relationships, individuals, and families. As an art therapist and counselor, I am well versed in both traditional talk therapy and the use of art in session. I am happy to offer either one or both depending on what people need.
I use a wide range of modalities including client-centered therapy, The Gottman Method, community art therapy, poly-aware approaches, harm reduction psychotherapy, and more. I also acknowledge the fact that there are effective healing traditions that far predate modern psychotherapy.
In 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) A few years before my birth. 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 enjoyed being part of a community art collective in Og’a P’Ogeh (Santa Fe, NM) and collaborating on community murals. I 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 am excited to work with you!
