Hi, I'm Jennifer

Licensed Marriage and Family


I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, CSAT (Certified Sex Addiction Therapist) and member of the International Institute for Trauma and Addiction Professionals. I have been privileged to practice since 2013, working with individuals and couples throughout California.


For the past 5 years, I have been working at Center for Healthy Sex in Los Angeles, where I have had the amazing opportunity to help many with their recovery from sex, love and pornography addiction. 

​My long and winding road to becoming a therapist began with growing up in a small conservative town, being raised Catholic, and attempting to navigate the many mixed messages from society, cultural norms, and family values. I found myself engaged in unhealthy behaviors feeling shame, isolation and desperately trying to numb the pain. 


My educational journey began after a difficult divorce, I received a bachelor's in psychology from Chapman University, moved to Los Angeles where I then received a master's in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University. I continue my educational focus with the integration of mind and body through better understanding of affect dysregulation and connected disorders of the self. 


I am certified in Guided Drawing, an approach that supports trauma-informed body mapping through bilateral drawing. I have experience with work in somatic, polyvagal, and attachment therapy. My approach is "bottom-up processing" which focuses on the processing and understanding of raw sensory input and stimuli. 

Using both my experience and education, I am so grateful to have the opportunity to offer a safe space for others, helping them to make sense of their own lives and heal.
