About Me

I provide psychiatric medication management and talk therapy on a case-by-case basis.   

I have been working in mental health for over 18 years.  My work in the field started in in-patient psychiatric units for 12 years before opening my practice in 2011.  Working in hospitals provided the opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients using multiple modalities and in various treatment settings.  As a clinical affiliate of the Harm Reduction Therapy Center in Oakland, I collaborate with HR therapists to formulate the best plan for our clients.

please call (510) 599-9421 or email [email protected] for more information or to schedule a consultation.

Patient Testimonials:

"I was 100% disillusioned with the therapy process before I was lucky enough to find Jennifer.  I was at a crisis point and no one to whom I went for help seemed willing to truly listen to me .  Jennifer is different.  Her background as a Nurse Practitioner has shaped her process in a way that has made her exponentially more open and understanding of her patients and their unique experiences.  Over the past two years, Jennifer has shown me such a selfless dedication to my well-being and a commitment to my positive outcomes that far surpasses what is required by her job.  Plainly, "gratitude" will ever be a strong enough word to describe my appreciation for what she has done for me."   --D.E.F.

"I wouldn't have the life I have today if I hadn't been seeing Jennifer these past three years;  I am so grateful."  --L.B.

"I feel like myself again!"  --C.S.

"Jennifer heard my cry for help... she patiently listened as I cried and then reached out to me in a manner that allowed me to make the right decision to admit myself to the hospital."   --D.H.
