Every Journey Needs a Light
Hi! I'm Jen!
My name is Dr. Jennifer Blanchette, I’m thrilled about the opportunity to work with you. I am a therapist who is deeply interested in the role of trauma and the nervous system in my client’s lives. I focus on finding meaning in your life by discovering how your brain injury or trauma has changed your life.
In therapy my clients have described me as warm, assertive, compassionate, and wise. My approach is to deeply understand you through listening and asking questions to find goals that we will co-create to get you the results you need.
I work best with highly motivated and invested professionals, students, and couples after a brain injury or trauma. They tend to be committed and willing to show up to work on these difficult places we go into together. I plan to MEET you there to be your coach, cheerleader, or gentle guide as needed in this space we make together.
To that end, I am a skilled practitioner in several evidenced based techniques that we will discuss in your treatment. I have four degrees in psychology including my doctoral degree from Regent University an APA accredited program in Christianity and Psychology. I am especially skilled in integrating your faith beliefs in treatment. My postdoctoral residency in neuropsychology was completed at Goodwill Neurorehabilitation in Portland, Maine. I am licensed as a psychologist in the state of Maine. My goal is to help you find a proven path to relieve your symptoms and get on with your life!
I believe that through this transformational work we will find glimmers, joy, and humor in the process.
