About

Before becoming a therapist, I was an artist, which led me into the field of art therapy. My approach to treating OCD is warm but direct; my goal is to help you become your own therapist. Creating art—especially ceramic art and painting—and skiing are my big passions in life.

Jen has helped me tremendously. She listens to me and encourages me to push myself with my exposures. I like that she has a background working at Roger’s too. I feel safe sharing my thoughts with her, and she doesn’t judge me for picking at my skin (just helps me develop tools to combat it). My scores have improved significantly under her expertise. Overall, I would highly recommend Jen to anyone wanting to improve their OCD!

Jen has been a wonderful therapist for me. She really listens and is very encouraging. I've needed someone to help me with my OCD for years and years, and I now have a therapist who is doing that. Jen is very knowledgable about therapy for OCD and knows just what to say to help me through. I'm extremely grateful.

I’ve been in talk therapy for the last 10 years and I can truly say I have gotten so much more in the short 6 months with my NOCD therapist Jennifer. Someone told me that they thought I had OCD after my twins were born and it wasn’t until some extensive research and validation from Jennifer that I realized I have been “misdiagnosed” my whole life. NOCD is changing the game and Im happy to be part of such a warm and welcoming community. I can feel myself getting stronger with each session and genuinely feel heard and cared for.
