Jennifer Sanford, M.S., LMFT
MFC#53158

Jennifer Sanford is a marriage and family therapist and a respected business coach.  She specializes in finding one's happiness and peace whether it be within the life of the individual, within a relationship or within a family.  Her experience and training allows her the insight necessary to work with individuals, couples and families.  

Jennifer's well rounded insight and experience includes working for fifteen years in the Financial Industry, founding two successful businesses and obtaining her Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.  Her experience of the business world gives her added insight in to the dynamics that take place at work which often tag along through the front door of the home, knowingly or unknowingly (or vice versa).  

Jennifer’s nature is one of compassion. She is skillful and empathic when working with clients. Jennifer believes that individuals and families already have the answers, but not always the permission or roadmaps, to change or to discover new ways of being. Her deep passion stems from her belief that within all people rests the innate ability to heal.

Her therapeutic views have been influenced by teachings of Western therapists and have been inspired by the contemplative, mindfulness-based approaches of the East. The mindfulness-based approach emphasizes one’s awareness of the present moment through meditation and attention-focusing exercises.  The art of mindfulness is a critical ingredient which allows us to be more present in our day-to-day connections with ourselves, those we love and care for and those we cherish. 

She works with her clients to help them feel more empowered to create and nurture the lives and relationships they want for themselves and were meant to lead. Jennifer is constantly amazed and humbled by the courage, adaptability and uniqueness of each person’s story. She considers it a privilege to be a therapist and respects the tenacity of the human spirit to guide the individual towards wholeness.
