Jennifer Nguyen, AMFT
Jenn became a therapist because she believes that there is healing and growth that comes from giving other’s space to share their life story. In facilitating this process, Jenn will help you process life’s events, uncover your personal truths, and make meaning out of your experiences. She realizes that in doing so, you will find new meaning, depth of purpose, and healing.
While Jenn is qualified to work with a range of issues, she especially enjoys working with children, adolescents, and young adults, by supporting their development, facilitating their personal autonomy, and helping them navigate life’s early years. She integrates a variety of therapeutic tools and techniques, while fostering a warm and safe atmosphere. She enjoys maintaining a richly diverse caseload and welcomes people from many walks of life, ages, racial/ethnic identities, and backgrounds. Jenn has special training and competence with mood disorders, psychotic disorders, and identity / developmental issues, and has received specialized training in CBT-P through Stanford University.
When you meet Jenn for the first time, you can expect a warm, open presence. She treats the first few sessions as a “consultation”, meaning that the two of you will have an opportunity to get to know one another before committing to a course of treatment. Jenn realizes that the quality of fit between therapist and client is critical to treatment success, and therefore, creates ample space at the outset of treatment to explore this question.
Jenn is a CA board registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (AMFT#115443) and is currently working under Dr. Dustin Arnold’s license (CA 30264).
