Hi, I am Jennifer Christian. Welcome! Thank you for visiting. I am an experienced therapist with a passion for guiding each client on your journey through a variety of issues including grief, hurt, and/or self-doubt to find yourself again and reconnect with a life you can love. I specialize in trauma, grief, women’s issues, anxiety, and transitions.
My Counseling Perspective If you have never experienced counseling, you may be asking how all this comes together or what I can do for you. I provide professional experience, compassion, and encouragement as you seek to heal emotionally, spiritually, and in your relationships. I care deeply about understanding your experience, and providing a place where you do not have to journey alone. I share resources and knowledge so that you are empowered to choose what will work best for you. You are the expert on you.
