Our Practitioners

We are goal-oriented counselors, utilizing principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Attachment Theory in our practice. All counselors are different; however, at I Choose Change, we believe so strongly in the same principles – what Jennifer Slingerland Ryan calls The TEA Process – that we regularly train and learn from each other. We have similar styles which allows clients to get a similar service no matter which counselor you see at I Choose Change.

Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the principles of Attachment Theory, Jennifer strives to create a peaceful bridge to change for individuals, couples and families. Mrs. Ryan has created her own brand of counseling – The TEA Process – which all counselors at I Choose Change are encouraged to use.
