My name is Jennifer "Jiffy" Morales. I am the owner/creator of Smash Therapy LLC. For years I had been dealing with anger, impulsiveness, aggression, and unfortunately depression. As a product of my environment and a child in the CPS system, life was rough and I really didn't know how to handle any of it. As a young adult I found boxing and learned discipline and found strength through my hardships. And in addition, I had a direct physical emotional release. Boxing saved my life, that and years of therapy. I had no idea I would have grown to be successful in boxing and pioneer as one of the first women to compete at a regional and national level in collegiate boxing, let alone even graduate high school or attend college. My life wasn't planned and often, I felt like my life didn't need to continue. Not only did I survive all of the painful thoughts, trauma, and excessive hardships in my life, I would then go on to graduate college with degrees in Psychology and start a career in the mental health field. After being a mental health specialist at an acute care psychiatric facility for 4 years while boxing and trying to pave my way to the Olympics, life took a detour and I decided to create a space for people to vent in a physical manner. I know that working out and being an athlete isn't for everyone and talk therapy seems so cliche` to people, so I created smash therapy so people didn't have to talk through their thoughts, pain, or emotions. All you simply have to do is Smash through it. Break through all the bullshit and keep moving. Channel that energy in an environment where consequences don't exist and take you and your closure home afterwards. I wanted people to know (especially kids) that they are not alone, everyone has a story, and most of the time the story doesn't matter to anyone else unless their writing it themselves.
