About Jennifer

Jennifer Buerger is an Adolescent, Adult, Couple and Family Therapist who has been a licensed for over 20 years. Her practice is made up of teenagers age 12 and up experiencing a wide variety of adolescent issue as well as adults who need relationship help.

Her philosophy on therapy is that learning some essential skills can allow you to create a happier life and more fulfilling relationships. In a warm, relaxed setting, Jennifer helps her clients develop more effective communication and problem solving skills, as well as how to make “smart” choices. Clients also learn how their thoughts and perceptions impact their feelings, moods and actions.

Prior to going into private practice Jennifer had experience in an array of settings including a community agency, juvenile detention center, and in-patient and outpatient hospital departments at Johns Hopkins University.

Jennifer received her Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Kansas; MSASS (Master of Social Work equivalent) from Case Western Reserve University Mandel School for Social Work.

She has numerous certifications and trainings including DBT, EMDR, CBT, as well as Trauma & Loss. She incorporates these theories/techniques depending on the need of her clients. Jennifer is a member of American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and its Mental Health Professionals Group (MHPG).

She currently resides in Roland Park with her husband and twins. 

Services & Fees

No matter how alone you may feel in your struggles, there are always outside factors to consider. No one lives in a vacuum; therefore, no one’s struggles are completely isolated from the environment. I will help you look at your struggles within a larger framework of your life, thus providing a new view of the situation and help you gain a new perspective on ways to make positive change.

Therapy is about changing the things that are going wrong, in addition to improving on the things that are going well. You already possess some of the skills needed to make things better. I can give you a new perspective, new ideas and new skills to apply to your current situation and use in future challenges. Therapy is not one-size-fits-all. It needs to be tailored to the individuals involved and their situations. I provide several formats for therapy.
