Jennifer has over 7 years of experience working in non-profit and post-secondary settings, including in the areas of peer support, anti-violence work, home share services for people with developmental disabilities, and more recently, in developing health and wellness programming for youth at her local Neighbourhood House. Collectively, her experiences working with a wide range of people, presenting issues, and settings, has shaped the ways in which she approaches the counselling process. More specifically, she endeavours to draw from what she has learned across these various roles to engage in anti-oppressive, trauma-informed counselling with her clients.
As a second-generation immigrant and woman of colour, Jennifer is familiar with how it can feel to be caught in the space between different cultures and groups, let alone, while navigating the various challenges that life throws our way. Although this can be a difficult situation for folks to be in, Jennifer is fascinated by how aspects of one’s identity, including their culture, strengths, and community can come together to not only shape their experiences and emotions, but also their journey towards healing. As such, Jennifer looks forward to holding space for folks to partake in sessions as their authentic selves and being by their side as they strive towards their counselling goals.
