As a group therapist at Adolescent Growth, Jennifer leads psycho-educational classes that help teens learn to cope with their struggles and support each other in recovery. With inimitable patience and compassion, Jennifer guides teens through topics ranging from emotion regulation and stress management to interpersonal effectiveness and mindfulness meditation.
For Jennifer, the challenge that comes with helping others grow and change provides a great opportunity for personal and professional development. Her passion for mental health and the value of proper treatment in recovery is evident in the work she does at Adolescent Growth. In the past Jennifer has shared her gift by working with chronically homeless men and women with mental health problems.
Jennifer began her university career at California State University, Fullerton. She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology. To satisfy her thirst for more knowledge, Jennifer went on to earn her Masters of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Jennifer states that Psychology was a natural choice for her because she has always been fascinated by human behavior and the remarkable changes that people can make in therapy.
When she is not working, Jennifer says that she can be found “somewhere in Los Angeles”, as she is always busy and never stays in one place.
