Jen Buchholz, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Welcome! I provide compassionate, evidence-based therapy for individuals and couples. I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy and other empirically supported treatments for adults with anxiety, OCD, trauma-related disorders, and relationship challenges. I offer therapy in English and Spanish via telehealth on a secure video platform.

My Approach

My Approach

My approach is nonjudgmental, genuine, and flexible as I support clients in learning new strategies that support their wellbeing. Since we often learn best by doing, I approach therapy actively and collaboratively as I encourage clients to try out new ways of relating to themselves and others.


I have found that people can learn to respond differently to challenging situations and uncomfortable emotions, even after years of feeling stuck in patterns that are no longer serving them. When we discover that we are capable of facing our fears and managing stress effectively, we build confidence in our own resilience. 

The way we understand ourselves is shaped by our lived experiences, intersecting identities, and cultural contexts, and I invite these conversations into therapy. In fact, one of my favorite parts of being a therapist is taking science-based tools and personalizing them for individuals and couples. I also enjoy bringing humor and levity into therapy, and I take celebrating "therapy wins" just as seriously as processing painful experiences.


I find that the most powerful moments in therapy (and life!) are when we let ourselves experience genuine emotion, especially when we do so in the presence of someone who accepts us with care and compassion.

I do not currently accept insurance. If your health plan includes out-of-network benefits, I can provide you with a "superbill" to submit for reimbursement.​ I recommend contacting your insurance company to learn more about your out-of-network coverage.
