Welcome! My name is Jennifer and it would be my privilege to help assist you on your personal journey towards reaching your full potential.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Scottsdale, AZ
As a humanistic therapist, you can expect me to treat you as an equal, as opposed to me acting as an authoritative or expert figure. I provide empathy, unconditional positive regard and validation while helping you works towards self discovery and fulfillment.
I often refer to myself as an Eclectic therapist. Eclectic therapy is an approach that draws on multiple theoretical orientations and techniques. It is a flexible and multifaceted approach to therapy that allows the therapist to use the most effective methods available to address each individual client's needs.
I was trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy in 2011-2012 with EMDR Humanitarian Assistance Programs. EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories. EMDR therapy is designed to resolve unprocessed traumatic memories in the brain.
