Jennifer Lundy-AguerreAbout the Presenters:
Jennifer Lundy-Aguerre, M.A. is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist practicing in La Mesa, CA. She received her graduate degree in 2002 from the University of San Diego. Upon graduation she worked with at-risk youth and families in a wraparound program, and mostly dual diagnosis adults in a short-term acute residential treatment program. She was licensed in 2005 and in 2006, she co-founded Positive Change Counseling Center – a private practice serving children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Throughout her career Jennifer has facilitated and taught Human Relations Diversity workshops, Continuing Education courses at MHS, Inc., various health and wellness classes in corporate settings and volunteered as an Anxiety Support Group Facilitator for the San Diego Phobia Foundation.
From 2009-2012 Ms. Lundy-Aguerre worked part-time as a Research Study Therapy for the Veterans Medical Research Foundation providing Prolonged Exposure therapy to Veterans diagnosed with PTSD. Following training by Dr. Edna Foa, Jennifer provided Prolonged Exposure therapy both in-person and via telemedicine, where the client was in another city and therapy was conducted over a TV monitor. Immediately she was impressed with the incredible progress made by the Veterans during Prolonged Exposure treatment. Men and women who rarely left their homes or interacted with others were going grocery shopping, attending family functions and confronting numerous fears they hadn’t thought possible. Jennifer continues to administer Prolonged Exposure therapy in her private practice with Veterans, as well as many others affected by PTSD. In addition, Jennifer treats individuals with various anxiety and depressive disorders as well as new and expectant parents regarding the transition to parenthood and monitoring/treating postpartum depression and the “baby blues”. Jennifer recently began facilitating “Bringing Baby Home” workshops, teaching new and expectant parents relationship survival skills for the first year (and beyond!) of parenting.
