Jennifer Dayoan

(LCSW, PPSC, MSW)

About Me

I graduated with my Masters degree in Social Work in 2007. During my 1st internship at an inpatient psychiatric hospital in 2005, it was there I realized my passion, mental health. Subsequent to my internship, that same psychiatric hospital hired me. I dedicated 10 years to thousands of patients, loving every moment I helped someone achieve goals. The unit sadly closed, I continued to work in mental health, with the dual diagnosed population.

Currently, I work at an acute medical hospital, and have for 8 wonderful years, still loving what I do, helping! I continue to work in depth with mental health, substance, homelessness, death, dying, grief, crisis. I love my job and love what I do. I believe in client centered, solution focused therapy, which includes review of all areas of life - social, health, activities, spiritual, purpose. I am a strong advocate and encourage all my clients to do the best they can with the tools they have. I offer an empathetic, non judgmental listening ear and hope to teach effective tools to help others cope.

Jennifer has been amazing. She has been such a great support and help through some difficult times. I am learning so much about myself and I feel safe expressing my problems to her. She is always welcoming and grounding. I recommend her and betterhelp.com to multiple people in my life.

Jennifer is an understanding, intuitive & calming counselor. She's given me great insight and suggestions into my relationship, self-esteem and anxiety issues, in a completely nonjudgemental way. I was anxious opening up to anyone, but Jennifer immediately made me feel comfortable and trusting.

Jennifer is always willing to listen to my issues and will help me discern some deep rooted patterns that I don't necessarily see myself. She offers me tactics to help me think in a different manner so that I can grow mentally. She's always understanding and comes across non judgemental, reassuring me that this is a safe space for me.
