Bridget Jenner, LCMFT, RPT-S
Alternative Dispute Resolution Services Lead

 

Bridget received her B.S. in Psychology from Kansas State University in 2002. From there she ventured on to Eugene, Oregon where she completed her M. Ed. in Counseling Psychology at The University of Oregon in 2005.

 

Shortly after obtaining her degree, Bridget came back to the Kansas City area and began her professional work as a Therapeutic Case Manager for KVC in Wyandotte County, KS. After a few years learning the ropes of child welfare, Bridget moved on to provide outpatient therapy for KVC where she became well-versed in Parent Management Training (PMT) and Trauma Systems Therapy (TST). Bridget was given the opportunity to learn about child welfare and resources available on the other side of the state line as a Child and Family Therapist at The Children’s Place. While there, Bridget became a Certified Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) therapist. She additionally received extensive training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). In that position Bridget realized her true passion to help families develop resilience during adverse times. At The Layne Project Bridget specializes in providing therapy services to adolescents (ages 13 and older), as well as to adults. Bridget is a registered play therapist, is trained on family systems and reintegration therapy.  Bridget is experienced in working with high conflict families to return the focus to the children. As a therapist at The Layne Project and a Co-Facilitator of The Layne Project’s Cooperative Parenting Program, Bridget enjoys helping families make transitions smoother so that the children do not suffer. Bridget is passionate about helping families move forward with a greater level of peace and keeping kids out of the middle of family conflict.
