Psychotherapy is journey with companion that does not involved therapist giving direction and advices. The role of the therapist, is to assist the individual rediscover his/her own inner child hidden in the cellar, to revisit the history that once could not be understood, and to regain the sense of vitality and aliveness. I believe solutions to each person’s struggle are dialectic. They are not to be given but can only be achieved through the collaborative relationship in the therapy. Read More

My approach to therapy has been: You can’t always control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it. I work with individuals and families using strength-based approaches to help them realize that they already have the skills that they need to manage and overcome the trials of life. While I specialize in therapy with adolescents and their families, I also work with individuals and families dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger management, difficult transitions, parenting challenges and daily life stressors.

Dr. Jennifer D. Stinson

Ph.D.


For me, therapy is a balance of art and science. The science includes understanding research about mental health, human development, and how the brain works. The art is finding creative ways to make use of the research in the context of each new and different therapy experience. For example, as a therapist, I might ask myself, “How can I use my understanding of treatments for anxiety disorders to help this particular person in my office in a way that makes sense in their life right now?” The answer to that question lies in the therapeutic relationship. I take great care to learn about each client’s unique experiences, feelings, beliefs, values and goals. Read More

My approach is based on a balance between acceptance and change. It is my belief that, at out core, we are all basically fine just as we are, but that we often have thoughts and actions that don’t serve us. Trauma (both large and small), past relationship difficulties, and difficult childhoods can all contribute to the development of thinking and behavioral patterns that make it difficult to thrive, and can lower our resilience to life. Together we will explore what needs updating, while working on increasing self-acceptance and self-compassion. Read More

As individuals we all yearn to connect and be part of a relationship. We are products of our families, never learning the necessary tools to be in a healthy relationship. Our blocks prevent us to grow. All relationships are not perfect but if we do not take the time to learn about ourselves, we will go into a relationship less whole than when we were alone. Therapy takes time and having a safe place to allow that process to unfold is just as crucial as the desire to change. Read More

“Sometimes when things are falling apart they are actually falling into place” -I believe the process of change is inevitable and learning to navigate thru the path of life can be overwhelming and at times confusing. Therapy is one way of lightening that load; it allows individuals to understand how they feel, think and behave. Which then permits them to reach a level of acceptance and thus develop compassion for their own experiences. This process along with the development of coping skills and enhancement of ones support system promotes an ‘open-door’ for change. Read More
