Jen uses empathy, warmth and humor to create a space where people feel heard and valued to regain hope. She has a deep compassion for those struggling with life transitions and understands the obstacles in finding the time and energy to work on oneself.

She gently encourages and supports people in making lasting and healthy life changes.
