Jennifer Patane

Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Do you long for a greater sense of well-being and fulfillment in life? When our needs are unmet or injured, it can result in distorted thinking and ineffective behaviors. We may feel unable to move past anxiety, depression, grief, fear, despair, anger, or trauma, and move into self-protection, isolation, or avoidance in order to cope. By creating a nurturing, nonjudgmental environment where it’s safe to express feelings and emotions, I believe that we will identify root issues and move beyond coping to restoration.

I utilize a client-centered approach, meeting clients where they are and giving space to process their stories and experiences. I’ve been trained in the Process Model of psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Gottman Method Couples Therapy Level 1. I incorporate Internal Family Systems (IFS) and welcome all parts with compassion and curiosity.

I’m an avid learner and hold two teaching credentials (multiple-subject and special education). I love traveling and learning about other cultures. I lived oversees in Indonesia for six years. Hence, I know what it’s like to be an outsider in a new country, learn a new language (Indonesia), and adjust to a new culture.
