Since childhood, I have been fascinated by the power of the “invisible world.” I was adopted and grew up surrounded by engineers who focused on the concrete; I evolved in opposition. I focused on the internal world of feelings and thoughts, curious to explore our human relationship to the more energetic and subconscious worlds, e.g., language, brain, sexuality, emotions, motivation.
Graduate degrees in Communication & Cultural Studies, Counseling Education and post-graduate training in Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy, allowed me to deepen these interests. I trained in career counseling, systems theory, psycho-dynamic psychology, child and adolescent personality development, grief counseling, couples therapy, psycho-oncology, mindfulness meditation, infertility counseling, adoption, and other mind-body modalities. I study evolutionary psychology and apply this perspective as well with clients.
I’ve owned a counseling practice since 2002 and worked with countless individuals and couples. I also have been studying male psychology for quite some time and advocate for a more positive understanding of male’s experiences in relationships.
I feel happy sexuality and close relationships are core to one’s happiness in life. We may get caught up in the world of money and tasks, but when things get quiet, people really just want more love. A smooth relationship to Love-Sex-Trust doesn’t always come easy, however, particularly if you have sustained some emotional bruising in your lifetime.
My work helps men and women decrease barriers that are diluting Love-Sex-Trust. My goal is help make the invisible more concrete and increase men and women’s feeling of competence in their love life, so they can enjoy as much love as they want!
I first heard about Jennifer from a girlfriend of mine. My friend and her husband had gone to Jen for couples counseling and they loved her. This is the highest praise. As a therapist and coach myself, I am very picky about who I refer my friends and clients to. This was several years ago and since that time, I have met with Jennifer as colleagues, consulted on cases and have referred many friends and clients to her.
Jen loves her clients, is down to earth and very good at what she does. She is incredibly knowledgeable and great at helping people create the kind of closeness we all desire. I highly recommend Jennifer as a couples counselor.
Jen is in a whole league of her own - she brings a unique way to connect, listen, and perceive, and the culmination of her warm personality and wisdom make for very rewarding and effective results. I would highly recommend Jen to anyone who is faced with difficult decisions in life, relationships, or career.
Jennifer has a wonderful sense of humor and authenticity that put me completely at ease on our first meeting. She was able to help me understand an issue that was challenging me quickly and had me see things in a new light. She's the best.
“Jennifer is a strong yet gentle personality which carries over in her work. She stands on her own with her work and is very successful. She is fairly nontraditional in her approach, which is a breath of fresh air when seeking therapy. Jennifer does not beat around the bush but she also takes time to speak to and listen to each person in the session, with caring and compassion. I believe Jennifer was of the male persuasion in a past life as she is very good at tapping in and understanding the male brain and their feelings.”
“I am a colleague of Jennifer’s and have referred clients to her many times, both individuals and couples, who reported back to me that they were really impressed how sharp she was at helping see their issues and find a way to talk through them. She has a very keen insight, and I always know that she’s going to do good work when I send clients her way.”
“The best part was the follow up observations and recommendations. This could also be incorporated into the therapy sessions as a whole–both before a retreat, in place of retreat (ongoing therapy), or after (working on the most challenging areas that came up during the retreat).”
“It exceeded my expectations. I felt very comfortable with your style. It felt more like a conversation than a one sided confession.”
“The best part was that it felt like my husband and I were getting to know each other for the first time in 11 years.”
“Jennifer Jones is great. Super intuitive – doesn’t beat around the bush. My spouse and I were seeing a different therapist for over a year and a half to work on communication and we got nowhere. We have only seen Jennifer for 3 sessions now and we have gotten further in fixing our issues than we ever have before.”
“Jennifer Jones has a unique combination of humor, empathy, intuition and imagination that she combines with her extensive psychological knowledge and highly effective insight discovery methods to quickly get to the actionable truth of any situation.”
