Associate Director Of Crisis Emergency Resource Counseling, Clinical Associate Professor
PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of Florida.
Dr. Jennifer Stuart’s interests include mind-body approaches to wellness, trauma recovery, grief/loss, disordered eating/body image concerns, and spirituality in counseling.
Approach to Therapy
She enjoys both individual and group therapy. Her style is best described as integrative, and varies depending on client needs. Dr. Stuart’s work is rooted in humanistic, existential, and relational-cultural approaches. She has training in Somatic Experiencing and Yoga Therapy and integrates both into her work.
Approach to Supervision
Dr. Stuart takes a developmental approach to supervision, encouraging increased autonomy as trainees become more comfortable. To support this development, she incorporates self-reflection and interpersonal process in the supervision process.
Approach to Wellness
Dr. Stuart maintains her personal wellness by staying connected with people and activities that energize her. She loves movement, nature, traveling to new places, and spending quiet time with her two dogs. She restores herself through a regular yoga practice and teaches group and individual yoga classes in the local community.
