Jenni helped me through one of the toughest periods of my life with her compassionate and non-judgmental demeanor. I was emotionally drained from focusing on fixing a relationship that was manipulative and toxic. Jenni provided tools that helped me identify the patterns in my behavior that kept me "stuck in the mud." Her insight and empathy helped me work through these issues and create healthy patterns, ultimately benefiting many of my personal relationships. Working with Jenni has helped me become a stronger and more confident person who truly understands the value of finding happiness in oneself.
