My Approach to Helping

My style is down-to-earth and non-judgmental. I have a deep faith in the fact that though you may feel lost, the path to wholeness is already inside you. I'm here as a guide to help you find it. I work in a way that is depth-oriented and present-focused. We'll focus on alleviating the hurt that is bringing you into therapy right from the start, with the long-term goal of healing its root causes. I use mindfulness to help you attend to limiting thoughts and how you experience them in the body; and gently address patterns in your life that have you stuck, uncovering strength, resilience and more personal freedom.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My experience as a long-time partner, mother, sister, daughter, friend and traveler add richness to my work. Before my life as a therapist, I worked in publishing, the food and wine industry, the corporate world and as a doula. I received my MA in Integral Counseling Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies in 2011 and have done extensive training in couples counseling, somatically-informed trauma treatment, infant/parent psychology, family systems, relational psychotherapy, mindfulness and interpersonal neurobiology. I have advanced training in working with clients with disabilities and chronic medical conditions.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Couples Counseling External link

    Your relationship with your partner can be the source of groundedness, stability, love and passion. It can also cause stress, resentment and pain. In couples counseling we build relationship skills, transform what blocks you from feeling closer and learn to stay connected through the rough times so that you can become better, more loving partners. I specialize in helping high-conflict couples shift out of painful patterns and into loving partnership.

  • Integral Therapy External link

    I work with your whole self: mental, emotional, physical and spiritual. We collaborate to create health on all these levels, as well as integration among them. For some, spiritual health means a dedicated practice, for others, it can be as simple as noticing our human connection. I'll meet you where you are.

  • EMDR External link

    EMDR is a different approach than talk therapy for relieving the distress associated with traumatic memory. This is an extremely well-researched protocol that brings much relief. I am trained in EMDR (Level 1 & 2), working toward certification, and use EMDR effectively with clients.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I have advanced training in couples therapy and specialize in helping couples stop fighting, break negative patterns and start partnering with more love, safety and trust. I'm passionate about helping couples express their individual voices while nurturing the relationship. I use attachment-orientated techniques from EFT to bring down the reactivity between you and start communicating better, giving you tools and teaching you expert skills along the way to a new, true partnership.

  • Parenting External link

    I help parents and caregivers orient from a grounded place of love and connection. Many parents come to me when they are at very low points, feeling ashamed and angry, bogged down by the day-to-day grind of endless parenting tasks - you don't have to go it alone! You can find links to my parenting articles at http://www.psychedinsanfrancisco.com/author/jennykepler/

  • PTSD External link

    I work with the effects of trauma using several different modalities, including Hakomi, EMDR and sensorimotor psychotherapy. We'll find the right combination that suits you, to heal the wounds that are bringing you here.

  • Anxiety External link

    We'll work together to find your strengths and coping skills and then use a combination of mindfulness-based practices and cognitive therapy to reduce anxiety.

  • Postpartum External link

    I'm passionate about this phase in life, the early days of parenting, and am committed to helping moms through this rocky time. I have been working with women around childbirth for almost 20 years and have advanced training in postpartum and parent/infant psychology.
