Jennifer Kerns,M.S., Counselor


Jennifer has been a counselor at Middlebury College since 2012. Her approach with students is integrative and informed by her interests in Buddhism, spirituality, health, nutrition, affective neuroscience, and the developmental effects of trauma on the body, mind, and soul.

Jennifer’s orientation creates therapeutic opportunities for students to explore what is revealed in the present through images, myth, dream, art, story, and metaphor. It also views the body as a resource that reflects and stores the living experiences of each individual. In all, Jennifer’s work brings a respect for the diversity of life and human experience and joins students wherever they may be on their journey here at Middlebury.

Away from Middlebury, Jennifer is a Reiki Master practitioner and Teacher and has a private practice in Burlington, Vermont. Some of her passions include traveling, making art and music, endurance training, gardening, and spending time with her two Maine Coons cats Laska and Valko.
