Jen Packard, LCSW

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in working with youth, adults, families, and systems that have been impacted by trauma. I practice from the paradigms of interpersonal neurobiology, attachment, and mindfulness-based psychotherapy. I believe in the healing power of laughter, playfulness, movement, and the expressive arts. Although I specialize in trauma-focused treatment, I work with individuals with a variety of mental health and wellness goals. No matter what your presenting concerns or focus of treatment, I will incorporate principles of trauma-informed care into our working relationship including:

  • Safety (Physical and Relational)

  • Trustworthiness and Transparency

  • Peer Support

  • Collaboration and Mutuality

  • Empowerment, Voice, and Choice

  • Cultural, Historical, and Gender Issues

SPECIALTIES

  • Adults, Adolescents, and Children

  • Individual Therapy

  • Family Therapy

  • Trauma and Stress

  • Dissociation

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Panic Disorder

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.​​

-Rumi
