Positive Strides Therapy

“Jen has helped me frame my concerns, identify solutions, and move on, avoiding the vicious cycle of insecurity that had paralyzed me.  I realize now, that at each juncture of my life, no matter how large or how trivial,  I have a choice about my reaction and my feelings and that feeling of control and  empowerment has changed my life. Jen often pushed me, gently, to a place where I could accept and understand this shift in thinking and I am glad that

she did.”

“Nature, fresh air, sunshine and exercise make me feel better. However, I rarely carve time out for myself to walk. Walking during therapy is a way to improve my body and my mind.”

“Working with my therapist at Positive Strides has helped me gain the skills to better cope with my anxiety.  When I walked during therapy, I was able to generate new ideas for handling difficult situations. These ideas help me feel as though I have more control and will be really helpful in the future when I am far from home. I think it was easier to make progress in a nature type setting as opposed to an office because I was able to think and talk more freely.”

"Four sessions with Jen have helped me take back control of my sleeping patterns. I used to struggle for hours to go back to sleep when waking up at night. A good listener, Jen quickly understood my problems and offered concrete and actionable advice."

“Before I went to Positive Strides, I often felt very sad. Jennifer has helped me greatly in locating my feelings and developing coping mechanisms. I feel so much better about the world and about myself thanks to her.”

“The physical aspect of walking makes my brain work harder and reach conclusions more thoughtfully and quickly. Now, when I am trying to think through something,

I automatically walk around to process my thoughts.”
