ABOUT MAIN LINE THERAPY
Hi, I am Jen, founder and main Clinician of Main Line Therapy Center. I am certified in Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy and have extensive knowledge, training, and experience in Brain Based Trauma Informed Care working with children and adolescents. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 20 years’ hands-on experience with children, adolescents, and families. I combine a customized variety of evidence-based techniques and skills to create growth and healing in my healing and treatment with individuals and families. I work closely with parents to support their unique individual child and family by helping them better understand brain development, patterns and to promote change.
My passion is to facilitate insight and change by walking beside my clients in unique ways to provide support and safety for continued personal growth and healing. I love helping children and adolescents, individually and within their families, to find ways to build or reestablish genuine connections and strengthen attachment.
As a parent, I know first-hand the complicated challenges facing parents today around issues like social media, peer pressure, academic pressures, and how they can impact families and individuals. I have worked clinically with children and families for over 20 years on developmental, relational, and family struggles.
Teletherapy / Virtual Sessions
In this changing time, we understand fear and hesitancy about leaving home. We are currently accepting patients for both virtual / online sessions, as well as in-person meetings based on your comfort level.
If you’re looking for age appropriate, fun, and personal therapy sessions for your child (ages up to 12) with a licensed and certified Therapist, then you’ve come to the right place! I believe (and evidence shows) that children learn and communicate best through play and art. I use a variety of art and play therapy techniques to understand and guide them to develop new attitudes and behaviors towards all of life’s most complex matters. Schedule an appointment today and see what I can do for your child.
Adolescents are very different than young children in developmental stages and interests. If you have a preteen or teen (ages 12-18) struggling with peer relationships, anger, anxiety, self-esteem issues, social media struggles, truancy, trauma, bullying, or learning difficulties this is the place for you! Relationships and trust are important to adolescents. I focus on building strong relationships with clients that will allow opportunities for change and growth.
Relationship and Family Issues
Is your family struggling? Many people find themselves stuck in relational patterns that are no longer healthy or simply need more support. In our Family Therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current struggles through identifying patterns and themes to best understand how to make changes that will last. We will focus on communication and relational skills to build healthier happy families. I’m confident you’ll find my personalized Family Therapy beneficial and supportive for making lasting changes to help build deeper relationships. Get in touch to book an appointment today.
Do you feel overwhelmed and lost about how to best parent your child? Do you think things like "I am not a good parent" or " I am not the parent I thought I would be"? Using the training and experience of 20 years I will work with you to help communicate better, understand cycles you are stuck in with y our child, and plan for setting up positive patterns and cycles moving forward.
Trauma is more than a single incident causing physical injury. It is also any experience producing emotional injury that can feel debilitating and hopeless. Understanding the impacts of trauma on a developing brain is imperative to working with children or adolescents who have experienced trauma, major transitions, loss, and tragedy in their lives. If you are looking for someone with expertise in this category then look no further!
Trauma and PTSD
I love helping my patients increase awareness and develop the tools they need to cope with all of life’s challenges.
