Relate: Roadmap to Your New Narrative
Dr. Jen is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Leadership Coach. Her qualitative research and clinical experience among executives and entrepreneurs underpins her clear-cut roadmap for success when our professional roles spillover into our relationship demands and when we are out of alignment in our relationships (with ourselves and others). When we feel at war or disconnected with our partners or spouse, we are not free to be truly seen, loved and creative. We lose our motivation, focus and we are unhappy, spilling over into our work. Compartmentalization no longer works. Dr. Jen works with individuals and partners to explore their worlds and how that has influenced their behaviors, thoughts and life choices. She teaches healthy communication skills to minimize arguments, spark intimacy and align goals for a relationship worth living! She roadmaps new narratives with practical, everyday tools to grow from the inside out, creating a happier, clearer path for your best life.

Her real-world experience as an interim start-up CEO and executive for Viacom, along with her doctorate in organizational change and leadership helps her to intimately understand your daily pressures to perform, while her clinical psychology education helps you to navigate the stressors of fundraising, balancing personal relationship demands and your self-care. Her research shows negative spillover in one domain causes ruptures in the other. She works with you to stabilize your mood, to keep you focused and productive and, in turn, inspires your teams and soothes your partner during even the most uncertain times of entrepreneurship.

Thanks for the un-Funking

I have been feeling like crap for a little while now. Tired, run down. So lousy that I almost canceled my appointment with you. But I didn't because 'they' say laughter is the best medicine, and for a few hours it really was. Today was no exception. Thanks for the Un-funking Jen.

VICTOR, 48 | ADVERTISING EXECUTIVE

You're a True Blessing

You always make me think. I will miss working with you when my time is up here. You have made a significant difference in my recovery. Honestly, more than anyone else. I hear you and process what you say. You're a true blessing.

BLAINE, 44 | HEALTH & FITNESS EXECUTIVE

Major Personal Breakthrough

A major personal breakthrough I experienced with Jennifer was realizing how INflexible I was being with MYSELF. Focus on what I 'should' do & comparison to others was limiting my career. This self awareness has been enormously helpful personally & professionally.

SARAH, 32 | CORPORATE EXECUTIVE

She has the rare quality of absolute sincerity

.. And is filled with a compassion complimented perfectly by education and clear, rational thought. She often has insights or suggestions that will shift your own thinking and perception into something manageable... something that can be improved. I don't think I would ever make such a recommendation if I weren't absolutely convinced that Dr. Jen could help anyone who crossed her path."

"Her experience in the corporate and startup world shines in her work; she understand the stressors in a way most traditional therapists don't..."

"DR. JEN IS AN INCREDIBLY AUTHENTIC THERAPIST AND COACH WHO DEEPLY CARES ABOUT HER CLIENTS

I hit an inflection point in my life and career.  I’m used to solving my own problems and had always been resistant to both therapy and executive coaching.  I reached out to Dr. Jen as I recognized I needed help in navigating both my life and career. I needed to find balance while working in an incredibly intense start-up.   I had tried a few therapists prior to Dr. Jen; those experiences left me deflated and a bit hopeless.

I was able to establish trust and connection with her almost immediately as she is an incredibly authentic therapist and coach who deeply cares about her clients.  Her experience in the corporate and startup world shines in her work; she understands the stressors in a way most traditional therapists don’t in addressing both professional and personal challenges.  As Jennifer told me, people can’t compartmentalize their lives. Boy, was she right!  People are holistic beings and her integrated approach is unique, differentiating and effective.  Finally, Jennifer is a force!  In my case, she had to meet me where I was at in my therapy and coaching journey and be patient while interjecting gentle nudges.  I cannot recommend Jennifer enough. Working with her helped change my life. I will forever be grateful for guidance, caring and the impact she has had on my life."
