Jennifer Beardslee


Licensed Therapist, Ed.S, NCSP, LMHC


As a therapist, I try to create an empathetic, non-judgmental space where people can feel comfortable opening up. I like to let you lead. I will meet you where you are, then help you find your own wisdom within yourself. Outside of work, I live right by the ocean, so I love to do all the activities that allows me to do—paddle boarding, swimming, and exploring marine life and animals.

Get to know Jennifer Beardslee

I really enjoy helping people. Most of my career has been with children and adolescents. I love to see them grow, mature, and find success along the way through school relationships or with families. I've had a lot of personal experience with different mental health issues in my own family. It's opened my eyes to relate to different types of people. We all have our own sets of strengths and weaknesses and places where we are able to grow.

I'm fascinated by OCD. It affects a lot of people. I love that there's a treatment that is evidence-based and successful. It's very empowering to help people using ERP.

I've worked in public schools for more than 15 years. I've helped people with anxiety, depression, ADHD, hyperactivity, OCD, conduct disorders, autism, and social communication deficits. I love getting to see kids learn to use words like 'triggers,' or say, 'This was a setback for me.' I'm most excited to see how people use the information they learn in therapy to make meaningful changes in their lives.

You are not alone. There are effective therapies and treatments available. You are on the first step toward getting help and support.

It's OK to be afraid. We're all afraid of different things. Leaning into some of that fear and discomfort can be healing in a lot of ways. It can make you feel braver as you move through therapy and expose yourself to those things.

You can tell she knows how to treat OCD because I was pulling for reassurance and she smoothly navigated around giving any. :)
