Hello!

Jennifer Walrod is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private psychotherapy practice in Missoula, Montana where she has served her community for 32 years. She is deeply committed to helping individuals and couples find inner healing and outward flourishing. 

Jennifer brings compassion, curiosity, and warm authenticity to the work of therapy, which helps her clients establish trust and safety. This trust and safety are foundational ingredients that lead to positive therapeutic outcomes. She knows that our lives and our relationships can make sense, and they can come back from dark and desperate places when we are given support, validation, and acceptance. Remarkable healing and growth can naturally occur when we feel safe, secure, valued, and understood.  The therapy process is about identifying patterns that started as adaptations but are now accidentally creating more distress and disconnection from others. When we get in touch with these painful emotional experiences, the authentic you becomes unblocked and spacious freedom is often the result. Through these new experiences, you will learn to use your emotions and their adaptive striving to work toward relationships and living in ways that bring you and those around you joy and goodness.

Jennifer specializes in couples therapy and is certified by ICEEFT as an Emotionally Focused Therapist (EFT) and supervisor in training. She is a founding board member of Montana EFT, where she serves as a training committee member and continues to advance the practice of EFT among the therapeutic community.  

In addition to her therapy practice, Jennifer has served as an Adjunct Professor of Social Work at the University of Montana, teaching in the subject matter of child welfare, child trauma, and other clinical curriculum as well as leadership development. She provides clinical supervision to graduate students and pre-licensed clinicians. Finally, she regularly presents to general and professional audiences on psycho-social topics such as sexual abuse, adoption, shame, and family violence in addition to teaching on matters of spirituality including faith, forgiveness, love, and hope. 

Jennifer integrates complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client or couple. With compassion and understanding, she works with individuals to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal and spiritual growth they are committed to accomplishing.
