About Jennifer

As an entrepreneur since 1985, I understand the challenges that people in business experience on a daily basis. I have a deep and abiding passion for the human spirit and an intuitive understanding of how people move through their creative and entrepreneurial process. In my role as a psychotherapist, I have helped hundreds of clients by creating a safe space in which they can explore and pursue new possibilities. I completed a Professional Business Coaching certificate in 2015, an M.B.A. with distinction in Human Resource Management in 2010, and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology in 2001. I am also the owner/founder of Eastside Family Counseling, which has been in operation since 2012.

I have also devoted a significant amount of time to building and supporting functional teams in my role as a leader with various volunteer and professional organizations. I am trained in mediation and conflict resolution, consensus-based decision making, and crisis response. These experiences inform my coaching process, which guides my clients the through the steps needed to transform their business and life experience. I focus on authenticity, creativity and congruence with internal values as cornerstones of my work.

My Approach

I am passionate about working with business owners who want to start from their core values to build a compelling WHY in order to better serve their clients and customers as well as their higher calling. By combining my advanced training and experience as a psychotherapist with my love of entrepreneurship, I seek to understand my clients at an authentic and connected level so that we can co-create a unified plan to nurture and grow their ideal business.

Who I Work With

I specialize in working with solo entrepreneurs and family businesses who want to build a business that supports and nurtures a healthy work-life balance. I enjoy working with 'heart-centered' business owners who want more than just a pay-check; my preferred clients know that they are building a legacy that they will be proud of.
