Dr. Jenny Sneeden

We’re often struck with wonder and awe at nature- sunsets, oceans, expansive vistas. I find that with trust in the therapeutic relationship, we can create similar moments of beauty that foster connection, growth, and healing.

Jenny specializes in navigating postpartum relationships and building a fulfilling sexual connection, which often go hand in hand. Relationships are an intricate dance of personalities, histories, responsibilities, and desires, not to mention broader cultural influences. Jenny helps people to explore what is most important to them and how those values can guide their life choices and be integrated with those of their partner. With couples and individuals, she pays close attention to the mind-body interaction as difficult emotional experiences from the past and present often subtly manifest in how we hold, move and feel in our bodies.

New parenthood can bring uniquely challenging experiences that might alienate partners from one another when they most need to feel intimate. Jenny helps couples adjust to this new chapter of their life, honoring and integrating important parts of their identities before and after becoming parents. Couples walk away from sessions feeling hopeful, having learned about facets of themselves and their partner that help them navigate the unfamiliar waters of new parenthood. With Jenny, couples build a strong family bond from the very beginning, fortifying the family system as it grows and changes over the years.

Jenny emanates a warm and calming energy that puts people at ease. She seeks to create a therapy space that emphasizes collaboration, authenticity, and curiosity, where people feel safe to wonder about themselves and in turn can work to understand, know and connect with one another. It is in such a space that she believes people can make meaningful progress toward the deepest kind of healing.


I live by the philosophy that
we all have the power and agency to be the author of our own story.
I could spend every day
finding a new adventure in the great outdoors with my family.
As a therapist, I
approach my work with humility and an understanding of the courage that it takes to shine a light on the past in an effort to move forward.
