Student Clinic

Jennifer Merrill

Jennifer is a graduate student at Northwestern University preparing for her Master of Arts in Counseling. She specializes in guiding recovery from anxiety and depression.

Jennifer earned her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences from California State University Sacramento. Since then, she has worked with many people in Nigeria and South Korea. Additionally, she has worked with diverse populations within the United States as a teacher, coach, and volunteer. Overall while working in these capacities, she recognized that some people were suffering beyond her ability to help. She desired to assist in a deeper way. On account of this, she is pursuing her master’s degree in counseling.

Coupled with Jennifer’s belief in a collaborative approach to regaining hope and well-being, she believes we can overcome challenges by addressing our past, and gaining understanding of our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in the present. Through this understanding we can heal. We can tolerate a full range of emotions as we relate to others. In addition, we can find meaning for ourselves.

Jennifer lives in Austin with her husband and children. She enjoys running and spending time with her family.
