"Jen, You're Not From Around Here Are You?"
"No, I'm not...how can you tell?"
Is it my Southern accent (which really only sounds Southern to people NOT from the South)?
Or the fact that I mispronounced your name, street name, school name or other landmark location? (I'm trying, I promise!)
Maybe the fact that I didn't go to high school with any of your friends or don't remember that important event that happened a few years back?
That's all true. I'm not "from here" but I now call Maryland HOME.
At least for the next few years (maybe longer). While that may be a problem for people that think I don't understand them or can't relate; I see it as a strength because it means that I stay CURIOUS about new people and places. And I am FLEXIBLE and ADAPTABLE to change.

A NEW DOT ON THAT MAP - NOW, I'M IN BALTIMORE, MARYLAND
Here's one thing you will learn about me. I am totally upfront about everything.
I will be in Maryland until at November 2024.
I am currently licensed in Maryland (LCSW-C) and Florida (LCSW)
but I am only providing therapy services through Jewish Community Services
Right now, my focus is on three things:
1) mental health education and wellness programs that help people find joy through play at any age,
2) creating meaningful training for therapists and professionals;
3) designing and hosting creative, therapeutic projects for all people using the latest research on journaling, flowers and nature, storytelling, and whatever else catches my attention!
