Raised in New Jersey, Jenny graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Art History. In 2007, she received her Master’s degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Family Systems from San Francisco State University. Jenny’s lifelong fascination with people and her approachable nature led her to the study and practice of psychology. Even her childhood nickname was ‘the therapist,’ since family and friends knew she would always lend a compassionate ear.
Jenny began her career as a residential counselor at a group home for children ages 5-13 where she witnessed the profound effects trauma has on young children. In this reparative role, as a pseudo-mom, she began learning how to be with others through their pain and most importantly how to attune to what feels safest for people. Prior to joining Windhorse, Jenny continued her work in trauma and family systems in a variety of settings working with teenagers, adults and couples.
As an appreciator of the arts, Jenny enjoys going to movies, listening to music, attending local concerts and events, and wandering around the city, stopping to smell the roses and notice others in her community.
