Change IS Possible!

Through groups and pri­vate ses­sions, I teach rad­i­cal self‐compassion to moti­vat­ed indi­vid­u­als who are ready to change!

I am Jennifer Downs, MA, LPC, and I have seen that last­ing change IS pos­si­ble! When we are ready to con­front what isn’t work­ing and embrace both respon­si­bil­i­ty and pos­si­bil­i­ty, we dis­cov­er we have with­in our­selves the innate capac­i­ty for heal­ing. We have the abil­i­ty to change our inter­nal expe­ri­ence, con­nect with our inner resources, and make the changes we long for. What we say to our­selves through our thoughts makes all the dif­fer­ence.

It is absolutely possible to see and experience things differently.

Find out how to trans­form rela­tion­ships with your­self and oth­ers through rad­i­cal self‐compassion.


I can’t begin to express the changes I feel. Jennifer’s intu­ition, wis­dom, and com­pas­sion are help­ing me find a part of me I didn’t know was there. My core. Thank you for this amaz­ing gift.

My Approach

Jennifer DownsA fun­da­men­tal ele­ment in all deep heal­ing and trans­for­ma­tion is self‐compassion.” —Tara Brach
Over many years of work­ing with clients, I have found that com­bin­ing mind­ful­ness, self‐compassion, and cog­ni­tive behav­ioral ther­a­py, gives clients the abil­i­ty to devel­op the inner resources to face life’s dif­fi­cul­ties with more emo­tion­al sta­bil­i­ty, resilien­cy, and pres­ence. I call this rad­i­cal self‐compassion. It is rad­i­cal because it is 180 degrees dif­fer­ent from how we have treat­ed our­selves all our lives. This is a piv­otal change for many who have tried through­out their lives to under­stand what is miss­ing in them­selves and their rela­tion­ships. Through groups and indi­vid­ual coun­sel­ing, peo­ple begin expe­ri­enc­ing life in a more mean­ing­ful way.
