I believe that every client needs an individualized treatment program. Therefore, I incorporate elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP). Additionally, I use a Health at Every Size informed approach to treatment.
I am passionate about helping individuals to recover from eating disorders and body image issues, to discover self-compassion, food freedom, and body appreciation.
In addition to working with individuals with eating disorders, I also have a passion for and have received training in helping those struggling with bipolar disorder or depression. You can thrive in your life even if you have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder or depression-therapy can help.
I do this work, because i've been there. Everyone's struggle is unique, however I remember how it felt to be consumed by an eating disorder.
I love being able to help others to find the same freedom that I did. I am so grateful to be a therapist and couldn't picture doing anything else.
*I am taking on a limited number of new therapy clients. If spots are full, I am happy to refer you to another clinician.

"Jennifer Rollin is one of the *very* few people that I would send my own daughter to if she were struggling with an eating disorder. She is not only one of the leading eating disorder specialists in the US, but also a warm and welcoming therapist who understands how the pressures put on women in our society can lead to distorted self-image and pain. Her understanding of the subject matter and willingness to help people is unparalleled. If you are looking for a compassionate and knowledgeable expert, look no further!"
