About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in NJ and NC. I received my Master of Social Work degree from St. Louis University in 1999. My early career included work with adolescents and their families in home. I also have extensive experience with alcohol and addictions as well as depression and self esteem. Most recently I have spent my years working with those at end of life, caregivers and those experiencing grief.

My approach is client centered and goal oriented. Modalities I use include Mindfulness, Trauma Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am compassionate and believe in treating others with respect.

It takes courage to heal and grow and I look forward to working with you on your journey

She's very supportive

Written on Jun 05, 2023 after therapy with Jennifer for 2 years and 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and intimacy-related issues

Jennifer has been my therapist for the past 2+ years, and today was our last session. Jennifer has helped me see things about myself that I was not able to see before, and gaining this clarity has allowed me to work through what my ACTUAL issues are, and my life and relationships are better because of it. Because of how understanding and grounded Jennifer is, I felt safe to show up authentically in my sessions and really work through some difficult things. I will be forever grateful for all of her help and the insight she's led me to.

More than a year later, I am writing this review for Jennifer. Jennifer helped me through anxiety and career matters that emerged during the latter half of 2020. From the first session, she introduced practices and the therapeutic listening that I needed to have my first cathartic cry in a long time. I would recommend her to anyone that needs comfort and a practical outside perspective on any life issues.

Jennifer is fantastic. She is compassionate, kind, and understanding. She has very accessible tools for overcoming hurdles that life throws at you and I truly enjoy my weekly chats with her.

I feel so comfortable with Jennifer. She has helped me make so much progress this past year. My family and friends have made note of it as well- the progress I’ve made has encouraged two of my best friends to participate in therapy. Jennifer understands my spiritual beliefs and values and guides me without judgement. I have contacted her many times outside of my therapy times and she was been prompt and wonderful with getting back to me. She’s so great

Jennifer was a wonderful counselor over the past several months. She helped me get through an exceptionally hard time in my life and made sure I had the tools to work though my issues in the future. Her endless patience and attention to detail made the sessions enjoyable and helped with my progression. As someone who had never done counseling in the past, I was nervous, but Jennifer was exceptional and I’d recommend her to anyone!
