Development of all types. Personal and business.
“Working with Jen (Dr. Banta) is likely to feel like a day walking in the woods contemplating life. She embraces the most important elements of your change: remarkable listener, strong collaborator, voice of reason and accountability pro. That said, she works from the perspective that your journey is yours to create… yours to experience. If you seek a safe place to be you, be strong and push for personal change, you’ve found it.”

“Dr. Jennifer Banta is a very talented Psychologist. Jennifer has the ability to connect with her clients, colleagues and other team members in an empathic and compassionate way, making people feel valued and heard. She is gifted in her skill set, which includes thinking quickly about critical clinical issues, offering sound advice and remaining calm and centered. Jennifer is experienced in serving clients who are challenged with complicated mental health symptoms, such as complex post-traumatic stress disorder. Through conference attendance and avid reading, she strives to stay current with the latest research and evidence based practices. As an active meditator and yogi, Jennifer believes in providing her best self to those she serves by striving to achieve balance.I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer as she supervised over twenty doctoral and master’s level students. Simultaneously, she clinically managed a residential men’s substance abuse disorder facility with over one hundred beds. Students shared that they experienced Jennifer as an authentic, encouraging and supportive supervisor. She also provided high quality clinical didactic training, which the students reported as thought provoking and exciting. Her duties within the facility proved Jennifer is able to wear many hats. She maintained therapeutic relationships with clients that encouraged their growth, healing and health. Jennifer also possesses great leadership qualities and took the initiative to tackle tough assignments, including quality improvement projects to revamp the lengthy student guidebook and creating an agency-wide process for psychological testing protocol. In addition Jennifer created a system and implemented APA guidelines for outcome assessment and evaluation. Jennifer is truly a gem in the behavioral health field.”

“Jennifer supervised my work at My Doctor Medical Group for about a year where I was a Behavioral Health Therapist. Jennifer is truly an exceptional therapist and clinical director. As a supervisor, she was always available to answer any questions I had, and provided guidance in areas where I didn’t have much experience. She provided support when needed as well as constructive feedback. I learned a lot from working with Jennifer, and I feel lucky that I got to work with her.
Aside from an incredible amount of clinical knowledge, what struck me about Jennifer is her authenticity and warm personality. She truly cares about people – both staff and clients. Having worked in many therapeutic settings, I haven’t found those qualities to always be the case with clinical directors. I recommend Jennifer for for any clinical work setting.”
