Jennifer Degen, MA
Mind/Body Psychotherapist, School Psychologist
Offices in Waitsfield and Hardwick.
SPECIALTY: Mindfulness informed psychotherapy, parenting, grief, school related issues, complex life changes, career changes
The foundation of my approach is that all human beings have an innate desire to tap into their deepest and best parts of themselves. A therapeutic process begins when there is a positive connection and a personal openness, desire and commitment to growth. Mutual respect, clear boundaries and safety set the foundation for our work together. My approach is to be transparent and utilize mindfulness-based narrative and body based approaches to assist you to find clarity, purpose, and connection to what is wanted or needed in your life. As a therapist it is my intention to witness, guide and serve in areas that the client wants to direct their life.
