Get to Know Jenny (she/her)

I am dedicated in working collaboratively with my clients to identify their concerns and help reach their goals while also incorporating the individual’s cultural identities and lived experiences. I truly value developing meaningful therapeutic relationships and I aim to foster and maintain an empathetic space where one feels safe and understood. I utilize a transdiagnostic approach with treatment to accommodate each individual’s needs and concerns in a way that is productive and compassionate.

I aim to integrate psychological and physical health-related concerns in conceptualizing and understanding the individual’s presentations. I utilize evidence-based treatments including Cognitive
Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

I completed my undergraduate training in psychology and biology at University of California,
Irvine. I then completed my Master’s in psychology at Boston University where I developed my passion in working with clients with eating disorders and associated concerns. I am currently pursuing my doctorate in clinical psychology from Ohio University. My research interest is in the maintaining factors of disordered eating behaviors and attitudes across the lifespan.

I have received specialized training in the assessment and treatment of various psychological
concerns including mood disorders, anxiety disorders, PTSD, personality disorders, and eating disorders throughout my graduate career. I have also administered various evidence-based therapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and
Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, the Unified Protocol for the Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorder (UP), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT),
and Enhanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT-E) for Eating Disorders. I hope to continue refining my knowledge and skillsets in these therapeutic modalities under Drs. Sarah Altman and Carolyn Fisher’s mentorship.
