Jennifer M. Bradt
Jennifer is a Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor, Nationally Certified Counselor, and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional who offers counseling services to children, teens, adults, individuals, and couples. Jennifer approaches mental and emotional wellness by addressing mind, body, and spirit. She is EMDR-trained, IFS-informed, and has completed a yearlong certification in treating Intergenerational Family Trauma. She has worked in various settings since her career began in 1997, including elementary, middle, and high schools, two universities, and a community-based domestic violence clinic where she worked with women and children healing from familial abuse. Before joining Curis, Jennifer founded and managed for 15 years a private group practice in North Texas. Additionally, Jennifer is an engaging and informative public speaker who has presented on topics such as resilience, grief, trauma, forgiveness, stress management, chronic illness, shame, suicide, marriage, parenting, religious abuse, and emotional intelligence. Jennifer is certified to utilize the EQi 2.0 and the EQ 360 assessments of emotional intelligence in counseling and corporate environments.
She believes our lives are centered around the relationships we create and our perception of how well they work. We will all experience relational struggles and challenges during our lives, beginning with sibling rivalry, playground/peer difficulties, and strained familial relationships. Furthermore, many will experience abuse within these same relationships. Through her faith, education, professional training, and experience as a daughter, sister, friend, wife, and mom, Jennifer can connect with her clients and offer practical, individualized solutions which instill hope and encourage positive, effective change. In addition to our human interactions, Jennifer believes exploring who we are as spiritual beings is essential. Many of her clients are working to heal from wounds inflicted in religious institutions or by harmful applications of scripture. In 2023, Jennifer began a three-year program to become certified in Spiritual Direction through SMU Perkins School of Theology. Regardless of faith background or belief system, she hopes to provide a space for her clients to explore this often overlooked aspect of self. Jennifer resides with her husband in Frisco, TX, and has launched two fantastic adult daughters.
