Jennifer Horak is a Psychotherapist in training at the Toronto Institute of Relational Psychotherapy and the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. Jennifer’s therapeutic approach is relational, nonjudgmental and empathic. She pays close attention to the ways that past and present relationships shape our current experience of our selves and our selves in relation to others. Jennifer practices from a feminist, anti-oppressive, class-conscious, client-centred approach that is trans, queer and gender non-conforming positive. Jennifer strives to help her clients work through relational and cultural traumas in order to develop self-compassion and a secure sense of self. Jennifer is a member of the Canadian Association for Psychodynamic Therapy and is governed by their Code of Ethics.
