Jennifer’s experience includes, but is not limited to: ADD/ADHD, addiction, anger management, anxiety, ASD, bullying, depression, family stress/separation, oppositional defiance, peer pressure, and PTSD.
Jennifer works from a person-centred perspective adopting a holistic approach with her clients. She is certified as a Mindfulness and Therapeutic Art Coach, a Usui Reiki Master and Brain Gym practitioner.

These modalities flow intricately together to help clients handle oppressive emotions, cleanse negative energy, and move beyond traumatic events and other painful experiences. Through ACT, Jennifer works with her clients to overcome inaction and impulsivity, thus establishing context and finding clarity, resulting in greater psychological flexibility.
Mindfulness techniques are used to increase awareness of the present moment and help people gain acceptance while letting go of judgment. For those who enjoy creativity and self-expression, Jennifer incorporates Therapeutic Art to release stress, heal emotional pain and foster growth. Brain Gym, based in Neuro Kinesiology, and Energy Medicine techniques which stem from ancient Chinese medicine, are used to help ground, centre and balance individuals of all ages. Lastly, Jennifer uses the healing art of Reiki to help relax and rejuvenate her clients.
