“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
“Do not learn how to react; Learn how to respond”
Jennifer earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Rutgers University, and went on to earn her Master’s Degree of Science in Mental Health Counseling, from Monmouth University. Through earning both of these degrees, she has been recognized for her high honors and academic excellence.
As a NJ State Certified Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC), a NJ State Certified Student Assistance Coordinator (SAC), a NJ State Certified School counselor, and credentialed as a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Jennifer offers a truly personalized form of counseling. She adheres to the philosophy that there is no “one size fits all” form of therapy and believes that counseling is a collaborative working relationship between therapist and client. As a major proponent of the mind-body connection, Jennifer offers clients an eclectic approach to therapy, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Principals, and Solution-Focused and Narrative practices.
In addition to her practice at ICC, Jennifer works as a counselor at an integrative physicians office in Wall, NJ, where she provides individualized psychotherapy for both adolescents and adults. Prior to joining the ICC family, Jennifer also worked as a counselor at the New Jersey Center for the Healing Arts, in Red Bank, NJ. Additionally, she spent two years interning for Rumson Fair Haven Regional High School, where she worked with students both individually as well as in group settings. During her time in these roles, she has addressed issues related to depression, anxiety, chronic illness, eating disorders, grief and loss, personal empowerment, drug and alcohol use, and self-esteem.
Currently, Jennifer resides in Red Bank, NJ with her husband, Mike, and their dog, Maggie. Outside of counseling, she enjoys spending her time relaxing on the beach, attending yoga, and spending quality time with her friends and family.
