Counseling in Vancouver, WA
If you feel you are working too hard trying to handle a difficult transition in your life, trying to cope with anxieties or depression or trying to recover from a trauma, please call me. I offer counseling in Vancouver, Washington to individuals and couples. My years of experience in the Portland Metro area, including Vancouver, Washington, has prepared me to be sensitive to diversity of all kinds and to understand the struggles of others while remaining flexible to what one may need in the moment.

After 16 years of providing emergency medical social work in three busy emergency departments, I have found a great balance to life by shifting my focus as a counselor for individuals and couples in a private setting in Vancouver, Washington. My goal is to offer a safe, nonjudgmental and welcoming space for you to explore yourself with honesty. I will help you begin moving forward, while supporting you through the change process.

My practice is action-oriented, with great attention to your strengths while helping you to stay present in the moment.
Bio
Jennifer lives in Vancouver, Washington with her family and enjoys the summer sun, music of all kinds, a warm cracklng fire while sitting next to her big yellow lab, Hank Louis Nelson Barber, and trying to learn how to have a green thumb with her indoor plants and outdoor gardens. Jennifer graduated from Portland State University, School of Social Work, in 2000 and for the past 16 years has practiced mostly in settings with individuals and families experiencing crisis, on a short term basis. She enjoys guiding those who feel "stuck" and provides a safe space to explore feelings with honesty. There is no judgement here or worries about burdening someone close to you with "your troubles". Jennifer offers the tools you need to move forward in your life with happiness and comfort.

If you are expecting action-oriented counseling in Vancouver Washington, you have come to the right place. Jennifer will utilize humor, mindfulness, and will help you establish a clear direction from the very beginning. Her personal and professional goal is that clients will feel safe, accepted and ready to be honest with themselves.

We have such a small amount of time in this world. Why live with unhappiness? Let Jennifer help you move past this unhappiness and find a new path which will lead to a better life for you and your family.
