Prior to being at SMU, Jennifer lived in New York City and served as a staff psychologist and the coordinator of training at William Paterson University in New Jersey.

Jennifer has been in private practice since 2012. Her clinical areas of interest include anxiety disorders, women’s issues, infertility concerns, eating concerns and mindful eating, and relational issues. She very much enjoys working with young professionals, new mothers or soon to be mothers, women and college students. Jennifer provides assessments for ADHD as well as pre-surgical assessments for bariatric surgery. She is also an adjunct instructor at Seton Hall University in their online Master’s Degree program in Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling.
Jennifer describes herself as a relational therapist, which means she is interested in examining relational patterns that clients engage in that support, maintain, and prevent the challenges/symptoms they are experiencing. She works with clients to explore the relationships they have with others, within their environments, and with themselves to understand where those relationships work effectively and where those patterns need adjustments or shifts in perspective. Jennifer also believes the therapy relationship is very important and works to provide a safe, compassionate space in which clients feel comfortable collaborating in their treatment. Her approach to therapy is primarily psychodynamic with an emphasis on attachment theory and developmental theory. She also integrates mindfulness and self-compassion into her work.
Jennifer currently lives in Dallas with her husband, 2 children, and 1 cat. When she is not seeing clients, chauffeuring kiddos, or being a spectator at various youth sporting events, she enjoys baking, reading by the water, and quiet (this one is elusive)!
