Jennifer Trudeau-Brown, LMHC, ATR
Jennifer Trudeau-Brown is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Registered Art Therapist (ATR) with 15 years of experience working in the mental health field, both inpatient and outpatient within a psychiatric hospital setting, as well as in private practice.
Jennifer began her studies at Plattsburgh State University where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Photography. Her love of psychology and the arts lead her to earn her Master’s Degree in Art Therapy and Mental Health Counseling from Springfield College in 2005. In her spare time, Jennifer continues to enjoy taking pictures, as this is an outlet that has allowed her to use her creativity and capture life’s most beautiful moments.
Jennifer enjoys working with people of all ages who have concerns related to various mood disorders including depression, post-partum depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, eating disorders, and trauma. She also has experience in and continues to offer couples and family therapy. She uses cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and the expressive arts (art, music, and play therapy), as well as a few other treatment modalities in her practice, which she tailors to find the best treatment for each of her clients.
Jennifer truly believes that the use of art can help individuals express and understand their inner struggles in a way that they might not have been consciously aware of before. She believes that being in the present moment and tending to self-care allows us to become the best version of ourselves.
Just like the Lotus we too have the ability to rise from the mud, bloom out of the darkness, and radiate into the world.
