"Our work spanned several topics including communication, our physical intimacy, the in-laws/ holiday arrangements, and our changing needs. Having deep discussions about how our behavior has impacted each other has been very helpful. I feel much more connected and seen. Couples therapy really helped me to express my needs and communicate more clearly."
- Kristen B., 31
"Jennifer has an amazing ability to put others at ease. I would want to sit across from her and share my heart. She has a very comforting presence that comes from deep within; she is made for this work."
