Jennifer Coleman is a licensed psychologist with a doctorate in clinical psychology.  She is a native of Wilmington, moving to Memphis to attend graduate school in 1994 at the University of Memphis.  From clinical and research experience, she has developed a philosophy that to nurture our children, we need to build on their strengths while accepting, working around, and sometimes embracing their weaknesses.  The world today can be challenging to negotiate as a parent.  Dr. Coleman recognizes this from her work with families and from her own personal experience.

Her approach to therapy is eclectic in nature with an emphasis on family systems, cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic frameworks.  She focuses on developing a comprehensive understanding of each client, and then attempts to develop a strong therapeutic relationship to motivate growth and positive change.  She loves her work, and she feels very fortunate to be in this profession.

Dr. Coleman’s clinical experience includes work with children, adolescents, and families.  She has experience working with clients with adjustment issues, ADHD, depression, anxiety, autism, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, and oppositional behaviors.  She is experienced in working with families experiencing divorce, and she has training in cooperative parenting and the collaborative practice approach.  This is a special area of interest because she has seen directly the negative impact that custody disputes and parent conflict have on children.  She also has a strong training background in developmental disabilities and psychological assessment of learning disabilities, ADHD, and developmental disabilities.

In her free time, Dr. Coleman enjoys playing tennis, going to the beach, running with friends, and spending time with her family.  She convinced her husband to move to the Wilmington area in 2000 so that they could raise their two children here.  She has a son who is 15 and a daughter who is 9.
