Dr. Jennifer Tollefson

Psychology Associate    |    Postdoctoral Fellow

My wish is that through therapy, you can come to make meaning of the past, recognize patterns in relationships, and understand the underlying meanings of your symptoms, thoughts, and behaviors.

My goal is to facilitate a safe, warm and empathic environment so that you can explore and gain insight into your internal world.

I love providing others with the often novel experience of being heard, validated, cared for, and challenged.

Jennifer Tollefson, Psy.D. Therapist DC

I am excited by the curative capacity of the human connection and believe that everyone has a distinct story filled with stories of struggles and resiliency. Over time, I hope that my patients develop a stronger sense of self and feel more in control over their decision-making, relationships, and actions.
