Jennifer Twardowski, MA, MFTi, Marriage & Family Therapist Intern in Oakland
I see therapy as a process of unfolding. There's a peeling back of layers until one finds what it is they've been seeking: joy, love, confidence, comfort, satisfaction or a sense of purpose. I see my role as your therapist as a guide and support in that journey. Therapy is challenging. It can be scary and incredibly nerve-racking to look at yourself, your relationships and your life experiences. My intention is to hold you in that process so you can heal and find what it is you're seeking.
My work is very integrative. Along with traditional talk therapy, I like to use mindfulness, humor, psychoeducation, dream work, guided imagery, breath work and body-based therapies. I tailor my work for each client based on their issues and personality along with my own intuitive sense.
My main intention as your therapist is to be sure that you are comfortable in working with me and that you sense we're a good fit. If I'm not the right therapist for you, I will do my best to help you find someone else who is.
