JEN RIVES, MA, LMFT
I support smart, motivated people who mostly have their shit together but can’t seem to figure out how to make their romantic relationships work. Feeling stuck in romantic relationships can be painful and you can get discouraged. But, pain in our lives can often be the necessary CATALYST for empowerment and growth. If you are looking for love, recently heart broken, or a woman who is considering an affair – or had one, or is in one – you’ve come to the right place.
I am a relationship therapist … but you could actually call me your partner in self reflection. I am compassionate, warm, down to earth, and have a ton of empathy for how we deal with the complexities of relationships. I bring a healthy dose of humor to the work that we do in therapy. Working on yourself is freaking hard, so why make it harder than it already is, thank you very much.
I’ve had my own struggles finding a partner who was willing to show up and meet me emotionally. So, I got down to business. I got committed to self reflection. I gathered my courage. I got myself into regular therapy. I focused on myself, and put my energy into changing me, not them. Duh. It took longer than I wanted it to, but let me tell you, it was worth the wait.
I live in in South Minneapolis with my husband, our cranky cat Baby and our super sweet dog, Mozey. I was an actor in my last chapter, and so thankful to have found work that connects with people’s stories in a similar way. I am socially conscious, LGBTQ friendly, and do my best to work on being aware of my privilege and how it affects the world around me.
