JENNIE IS A BOARD LICENSED MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST IN CALIFORNIA...  

I believe that within each of us lies a powerful, resilient human spirit that has the capacity to thrive regardless of one’s life circumstances.  Happiness, Hope, Healing & Success, occur as we learn to embrace our unique gifts, develop self-compassion, increase self awareness, being true to our identity and implement coping skills into one’s daily life.  I am passionate about my work because I believe that we all have the capacity to excel and find joy in the journey of life.

My counseling approach is very down to earth and straightforward; we will focus on your strengths to overcome your current hardship.  I have over 15 years of clinical experience in helping Children, Couples and Families find their confidence to sustain a meaningful life.  Among my areas of specialities, I genuinely enjoy working with Highly Sensitive Children & Teens to help them gain the coping skills to move through life with greater ease,  for example: "How to be a Happy Kid/Teen in this Day and Age", "Building Self Esteem", "How to Survive Bullies",  "Behavior Issues" and "Helping Parents Raise Happy, Healthy & Successful Kids/Teens."

I currently hold a position on the Board of Directors for the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapist - San Diego Chapter.  With this position I join a team of leaders in the field of Marriage & Family with the goal of shaping and evolving the perimeters of our profession. In addition, I am the Clinical Director of Project Wild Child. A non-profit organization with the mission to reintroduce the love of nature to the youth population. Project Wild Child provides family friendly outdoor activities and will soon be introducing youth workshops focusing on positive thinking, development of a strong self-esteem, friendship building and resilience training. 

At the age of 42, I have been blessed to have experienced so much.  I have the opportunity to be a Wife, a Mother of two incredible intuitive children, a Therapist and Published Author of a Children's book series titled "Dream Travel - A Story For Intuitive Kids".    

In addition, raising two intuitive children has led me to expand my counseling services to the Metaphysical population.  I am very excited to reach out to this population because just like me, there are parents of intuitive children who could benefit from learning how to successfully raise a happy, thriving Intuitive child.  I am so excited to bridge my clinical knowledge as a Family Therapist and help Intuitive children, their Parents, and Intuitive Adults on their journey of empowerment!
