About Jennifer Stern, LISW

I graduated from the SSA Master of Arts program at the University of Chicago and have been working as part of a private practice for over a decade. My areas of focus include working with individuals and families on grief, loss, bereavement, and difficult life transitions resulting from illness, marital conflict, divorce, and other complicated, fractured relationships. My focus as a cognitive behavioral therapist is to empower individuals to take meaningful and purposeful action to create desired change in their lives. I teach clients about the power of choice, wise minded thinking, and productive communication strategies as stepping stones to healing and transformation.

I read Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss soon after my Mom died. Hope Edelman's book offered me insight, guidance and hope as I began my own journey as a Motherless Daughter. Today, over 20 years later, I work as an LISW in a private practice counseling those experiencing grief and loss. www.transformativegrief.com is my website filled with articles, strategies and resources. Hope's book, Motherless Daughters: The Legacy of Loss, is one of my recommended reads.
