Jacquelyn Pfeifer, AMFT

Personal pronouns; she/her or they/them

I orient my practice in solidarity with clients identifying as or exploring LGBTQ, consensual non-monogamy and kink/BDSM

As a relationship and family therapist, I provide a non-judgmental and affirming space that acknowledges and celebrates the beauty of human sexuality, gender, and relational variance. I help couples, relationships and families to examine and create new patterns, communicate more openly and lovingly, and strengthen the relationships in their lives.

My approach to therapy focuses on helping you to identify, explore, and, if helpful, lift constraints that may be interfering with the ability to live your definition of a healthy, balanced life.  I work collaboratively with clients to examine trans-generational patterns, to heal wounds and the effects of past trauma, and to create more meaningful and rewarding relationships.

I welcome your call and questions.
