I Help Mend Relationships.

“My purpose is helping people feel connected, loved, healthy, & like they belong.” – Dr. Jen

Feeling Sad, Lonely, and Disconnected is Painful.

Life is an adventure meant to be lived to the fullest.

  • You’ve been hurt in the past, so it’s hard to trust relationships now.

  • Hard to be vulnerable because of fear of rejection.

  • Over-working, over-medicating, and over-drinking.

  • Relationships feel inauthentic and lonely.

  • Chaotic, disorganized, and unsettled life.

  • Feel emotionally disconnected, but have a lot of love to give.

You deserve to feel seen, heard, and felt by those you love.

Feel more emotionally connected in relationships, free of addictions, chaos, anxiety, and stress. Live life with more peace and contentment, so you can feel more self-actualized and growth-oriented rather than stagnant.

I get how you feel. I’ve been there.

I’m Dr. Jen, a recovering, anxiously attached person who went from a small-town country girl with low self-esteem to a tree-hugging psychotherapist. I help people strengthen their mental health core with tools for the brain, body, and relationships. I’ve been a therapist for 22 years. I returned to graduate school when I realized my soul could never survive the corporate world (which is where most of my clients hail from).

I’m an attachment-based and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist (CBT), and I love, love Attachment Theory. I’ve got a passion for helping people receive quality mental health care. As a result, I founded I Choose Change 17 years ago and the Self Love Hub three years ago.

Other things you may want to know:

  • B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies from Texas Tech University
  • M.Ed. in Education in Counseling from the University of North Texas
  • Ph.D. in Family Studies from Texas Woman’s University
  • Mom of three (currently two teens and a tween)
  • Wife of one
  • Two dogs and a bird
  • Lover of books of all genres, but mostly psychological thrillers, dystopian, and Colleen Hoover, who should be her own genre.
