Jennifer Boyle is a wellness counselor and movement therapist. Her primary modalities include holistic nutrition education and counseling, stress-management skill development, personalized goal setting, and movement therapy. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Health, Wellness, and Fitness with a Fitness Professional concentration from the University of Wisconsin- Stout. She is also a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and has worked as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor professionally for over one year. She has experience as both a collegiate and high school athlete and taught her first group exercise class at the age of 17.
Having personally experienced the profound healing effects of living congruently with nature, holistic principles set the foundation for Jennifer’s approach to movement therapy and wellness counseling. In 2019, Jennifer embarked on a 6-month internship at a sustainable farm and healing center in rural Wisconsin where she learned the principles of organic farming, herbalism, and natural healing. Helping her clients develop strong relationships with the natural world is one component Jennifer believes is essential for mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. Jennifer’s individualized approach to health enhancement allows her to meet her clients where they are and work collaboratively to find the most appropriate plan of action. Clients may enjoy nature hikes, foraging and identifying wild plants, or sowing edible gardens.
Additionally, Jennifer guides clients through appropriate exercise practices so they can optimize their health and vitality. Regular physical activity can have a profound impact on both physical and mental wellbeing. Potential mental health benefits include improved self-concept, enhanced cognition, as well as decreased fatigue, anxiety, and stress. Exercise modalities are established on an individual basis and may include nature hikes, recreational sports, active play, functional exercise, and mobility and stretching. Guided meditation and breathing exercises may also be explored within the exercise process. Young people and individuals new to mindfulness and meditation may find this practice especially approachable.
Jennifer enjoys traveling to foreign countries, gardening, foraging, and creative expression through cooking and exercise. She is also a downhill skier and avid hiker.
