Jennifer is amazing she goes above and beyond for her clients. She truly cares for us! She has come in during times shes not normally in the office if I needed it. She's always supportive and I know she is always in my corner there to support me no matter what! She's the reason I've accomplished so much in the last year I have been seeing her! I recommend her very highly! She's honestly the best!!!

Five stars is not enough for this office. My husband and I went to see Doug, he helped us both see things in the others eyes. Office is open late for those of us that work and the office manager is very helpful! Will recommend to anyone. All therapy offices should use Bridge Builders as a model for their business.

Jennifer has gone beyond what I expected from a therapist to ensure my children were on a better path. Opening her office for family as well as individual counseling was most beneficial to us. Her patience , empathy, professionalism and knowledge in her field proved to be the best choice that I made for my family.
Tips & Advices
Group counseling is when one or more counselors lead a group discussion, usually between five and 15 people. The group may focus on a shared experience or situation, and provide support and encouragement to the other attendees.
Each state defines its own requirements for what licenses and education are needed to be a counselor. It's common for counselors to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or a similar field, as well as a master's degree. After that, counselors should obtain their state license, and can move on to achieving other licenses like the:
  • National Certified Counselor (NCC) license
  • Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC) license
  • Master Addictions Counselor (MAC) license
  • Forensic Health Evaluators (FHE) license
  • Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) license
  • Certified Family Therapist (CFT) license
This all depends on the patient's goals and circumstances. Some people are happy with their results after just a few sessions; others continue to meet with their counselors for years. There is no right or wrong length of time to go to counseling.
Anyone can benefit from counseling services. Counseling can help you gain greater insight into yourself; deal with feelings of sadness, worry, depression or anxiety; as well as work out relationship problems, trauma or addiction. Not every type of counseling service works with every person.
Yes. Except in very specific situations, a counselor will never repeat conversations from a counseling session. Situations where information from sessions might be shared include:
  • If the counselor believes the patient might harm him or herself, or someone else.
  • If the counselor wants to get a second opinion on the patient's treatment. If this is the case, the counselor should seek the patient's written permission before consulting another professional.
