Interview with Jennifer Warner:
Jennifer Warner, the newest practitioner at The Center for Integrative Practices, maintains a holistic approach to wellness that fits perfectly with The Center’s mission. A licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist, Jennifer is also certified in holistic health and nutrition, giving her a truly unique approach to health and wellness. When asked to describe her practice, Jennifer says, “My approach is insight-oriented, practical, and holistic: assist clients to heal both their minds and bodies through the understanding of the impact of life experience on behavior, and building the skills to effect real change in their own physical, nutritional, and mental health.” Jennifer’s belief in ‘total health’ is something she shares with her fellow practitioners at The Center. She also focuses on the strengths of each individual person. “The greatest resource we have is ourselves. I recommend that prospective clients take at least five minutes of alone time each day. Put your phone away, turn off the TV or radio, shut your office door, go for a walk around the block, take a few deep breaths. Just practice being with yourself, even if it’s for a few minutes. It’s amazing how restorative it is to “unplug.” Jennifer is excited to be joining The Center for Integrative practices and being a part of it’s philosophy. “The beauty of The Center is in the simplicity of its philosophy: view each client holistically and tailor treatment specific to the individual. I am thrilled to be amongst a group of such highly skilled clinicians and providers who understand the value and worth of the whole person and believe that total health addresses the needs of both mind and body.”
