My Approach to Helping

My name is Jennifer Kolbow and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Corona, CA, and providing telehealth to clients throughout California. I enjoy working with families, parents as well as children and teens individually, in order to reduce symptoms and improve relationships. I use an eclectic, client-centered approach to tailor treatment to best meet the needs of each individual. Sometimes that might look very structured and include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Other times a more collaborative, narrative approach may be needed to help the client externalize the problem and shift their beliefs.

My approach works well with children and teens struggling with anger and irritability, withdrawal and isolation, low self-esteem, and excessive worry. I also help adults struggling with all stages of parenting from infertility to postpartum to empty nesters, and all of the transitions in between. I provide a warm, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment. We often discuss a lot of heavy material in session, but that doesn't mean that I won't also incorporate humor or fun sometimes as well. I will periodically ask for your feedback as to what is or isn't working, in order to help you get the most out of our time together.

Goal setting is a collaborative process where we will work together to identify the areas that aren't great, as well as the ones that are so that we can figure out how to help you make improvements based on your previous successes. During the first session, we will get to know each other. Some clients are ready to jump right in. Others might be new to therapy or just want to move at a slower pace. Both styles are fine with me, as I am happy to work at your pace to help you get the most out of the process.

I took a somewhat unconventional path to become a therapist, first having a career in the corporate world in sales management. After becoming a mother, I realized how HARD motherhood was and how there wasn't a "What to Expect" book for transitioning from corporate woman to stay-at-home mom. I eventually chose to pursue a career as a therapist so that I could support others in ways I wished I had been supported. Along the way, I have worked with a lot of children and teens, and want to help support them as well because it's also hard growing up in a world with social media, after an unprecedented period of isolation.
