Her initial specialization started with children struggling with RAD, ADHD, PTSD, sensory & behavior problems, adoption & attachment issues as well as complex trauma. Her extensive experience began with in-home therapy of children involved in CPS and foster care due to abuse and neglect. Soon after, due to disclosure, treatment focus expanded to the treatment of childhood sexual abuse, incest as well as emotional, physical abuse. Key emphasis work done was with parents to better protect & then understand their children’s behaviors as symptoms vs “fix the behavior” or blame the child. This serves to empower parents to better meet their child’s developmental needs, improve attachment wounds & healing and deepen the “authentic” caring & support relationship. 

Jennifer’s skillset expanded to treatment of sex addiction including pornography & video game addiction. Currently Jennifer runs Sex Addiction Recovery groups for men in WI and Puerto Rico as well as Individual Recovery/CSAT attachment/trauma based therapy & specialization on Mental Health/Recovery “Concierge” Support.

This work consists of pro bono EMDR consultation, pro bono therapy for clinicians and pro bono-donation based therapy offered to clinicians’ clients who have complex trauma and the issues are beyond their own skillset. This is to develop the therapists’ skills, train on EMDR and trauma, address the issues & her colleagues provide relief for therapists-addressing the need for well rounded change, hope and results for the island. Jennifer has also formed the 1st ever EMDR-TRN (hap Trauma Recovery Network) “Greater San Juan & Yabucoa” Puerto Rico with other fellow clinicians on the island. 

She is currently working on the writing & planning of several books & research that will be released in the future. She is the only EMDRIA approved EMDR trainer, cross-trained as a CSAT. EMDRIA awarded Jennifer the 2016 EMDR Advocacy Award for her significant contribution of commitment & dedication to EMDR. IITAP awarded Jennifer the 2019 IITAP Outstanding Educator Award.
