Jennifer Diamond received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Northwestern University Medical School where she trained in the use of psychodynamic psychotherapy with adolescents and adults. Her therapeutic focus includes transitions in adolescence and young adulthood, navigating divorce, post-divorce relationships, and parenting through divorce. She has also worked as a parenting coach helping people navigate the difficult job of raising children, from infancy through young adulthood, in all types of family configurations.
In addition to training in traditional psychotherapy methods, Jennifer trained as an ERYT, an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher. She has completed several trainings on the use of yoga and other mindfulness techniques as therapeutic tools.
Jennifer draws on both aspects of her training, using mindfulness tools alongside more traditional therapeutic tools, to help people find the clarity, direction, and wisdom they need to get relief from symptoms and struggles they are experiencing.
She believes that people are basically creative and wise beings whose symptoms and struggles are often messages from a voiceless part of themselves that need to be listened to without judgement, and understood with compassion, in order to remit.
Jennifer is available to consult with therapists on the use of yoga and mindfulness techniques as an adjunct to therapy. She also teaches continuing education classes to yoga teachers interested in teaching yoga as a psychotherapeutic healing tool.
