About the Author

In addition to authoring Fig & Birch, I am a clinical psychologist and mother of 3 (ages 18, 16 and 13). Through my professional and personal experiences, a number of bumps in the road, and a heavy reliance on humor,  I have developed a roadmap for how to flourish in the face of life’s many adventures.  My goal with this blog is to share what I have learned about wellness, transitions, and strategies that can help us all to become our most fully actualized and content selves.

This project is a work in progress and I welcome suggestions, ideas, and feedback.  Feel free to email figandbirch@gmail.com with topics you’d like to see covered, questions, or any other comments that you would rather not post on the site.

If you would like more information about my work, please see my practice website: www.drjennifermessina.com.  I provide individual and couples therapy in Manhattan and consultation/coaching via skype and telephone for folks all over the country.

Thanks for joining me on this adventure!
