This healthcare team serves Peterborough, Lindsay, Haliburton and Northumberland.  Jennifer’s experience will include family therapy, eating disorders therapy, group therapy, general mental health counselling and psychiatric mental health counselling.

This experience will broaden the scope of Jennifer’s therapeutic practice and build upon a growing foundation of trauma-informed and strengths-based training and certifications she’s acquired since launching The Mane Intent in 2014.
