Jennifer Branstetter

(MSW, LCSW, LISW-S)

About Me

My name is Jennifer Rush-Branstetter and I'm a psychotherapist, but you might also call me a problem solver, listening ear, or compassionate challenger of unhelpful habits. I help people who wish they could make changes in their life, but fear the process or the outcome. I support them in exploring the possibilities in a safe environment so that they can feel confident in taking those next steps. Relief from frustration and anxiety is possible, and you can build the life that you want with the support of someone who is in your corner.

In 2010 I graduated with a Masters of Social Work from the University of Cincinnati. I am independently licensed in Ohio and Indiana to provide mental health therapy that is empathic, honest, and effective. I work from a CBT and solution-focused background, and incorporate other modalities like mindfulness-based stress reduction, motivational interviewing, or DBT when needed.

I believe that having the courage to face the hard stuff and move forward will change your life and the world. I also believe that we all need a little help sometimes, and therapy is a great place to get objective and supportive feedback.

Written by T.O. on Oct 13, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Jennifer is such a kind and caring individual. I’ve been working with her for several weeks now, and although I have several long term issues I’m dealing with I’m starting to see her guidance coming through in areas before I was lacking. She’s here for me and replies in such a timely manner- nothing is too small of an issue for her. I’m looking forward to working through a lot more in the near future with her help.

Written by E.R. on Aug 18, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and career

Jennifer always has words of encouragement, and sometimes the way she talks to me, I end up finding the answer to things I didn't know about myself, as I'm reading her messages, or writing her back. This is also very therapeutic.

I have been talking with Jennifer for a few months and she has brought a sense of clarity to my life that was not there before. She has helped me find myself through some very difficult times and I am forever grateful for her support and guidance. I am not sure where I would be without her at this point.

Written by H.A. on Aug 05, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning grief, and self esteem

I have only been working with her for a couple of weeks but I find it very easy to disclose things that I feel and have happened then I do with others I have previously talked to. She is very kind and offers support and a new perspective while also verifying your feelings and helping you to see a new way of what is going on.

Written by S.C. on Jul 30, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I have been working with Jennifer for a few weeks, and things are going very well. I would like to post a more detailed review after we've spent more time working together. However, for now, I can say she's extremely responsive, knowledgeable, a great listener and offers the type of help she knows I will find receptive and useful. She's also a great person and genuinely wants to help me.

So far, I have really enjoyed working with Jennifer Branstetter. She has been very helpful and offers guidance in a timely manner. I wasn't sure how this form of therapy would feel(writing, rather than face to face meetings) but I find that it is quite possibly a better form of therapy for me. I do not feel on a time crunch to get the appropriate information out and based on questions she asks, I can spend some time processing the information before writing her back. It has been very helpful.
