Jennifer Fulcher, Ph.D.
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Providing Experienced and Compassionate Care
Prior to starting my own practice, I spent 14 years working at Tampa General Hospital in both inpatient and outpatient settings. My exposure to clients from all walks of life has shown me the importance of tailoring interventions to meet client's individual needs. I received my education and clinical training at Samford University (BA), The University of Alabama at Birmingham (MA and PhD), and the University of Florida (clinical internship).
I believe in using evidence-based approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) to help target any maladaptive behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and traumas that are impacting your life. I believe in taking a collaborative approach to help you reach your goals. I allow individuals space to candidly discuss concerns while maintaining the highest level of confidentiality and anonymity.
My approach is direct, clear, and practical with no judgments or shame.
Over the years I have specialized in treating individuals with generalized anxiety, depression, chronic medical conditions, and trauma. I also spent several years working in a bariatric clinic, and I continue to enjoy helping individuals prepare for bariatric surgery or adjust to life post bariatric surgery.
Pregnancy and Postpartum
In my time at the hospital I have worked with new and expectant mothers in the hospital and in an outpatient based setting, and have advanced training in pregnancy, postpartum anxiety, postpartum depression, and postpartum trauma and loss.
Executive Therapy and Career Burnout
Over the years I have also worked with many executives, physicians, attorneys and other professionals to manage work-life balance and matters related to mental health.
Virtual and In-Person Therapy
I am currently offering telehealth sessions to anyone located in the state of Florida, and I also provide in-person sessions in South Tampa. If you are interested in learning more about beginning therapy with me or finding out if we are a good fit, please schedule a free 15 minute consultation. If you are seeking a bariatric pre-surgical evaluation, please call 813-461-5955 to schedule.
