Jennifer Moragas

(LMHC, CASAC)

About Me

Hello and Welcome!

I want to share a bit about myself and educational background with you. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of New York. I also hold a credential in addictions (CASAC). I earned my master's degree in mental health from Walden University in 2012. My undergraduate degree is from Kean University in the field of Elementary Education and Psychology. I always fascinated with human
behavior. I have 6+ years of experience as a therapist and work with clients with an array of mental health issues. I have worked with those who struggle with an Addiction, ADHD, Anxiety, Bi-polar, Depression, Parenting Concerns, Relationship Conflicts and Self-Esteem. There are many therapy approaches that I like to utilize in order to meet you where you are at. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused and Motivational Interviewing are a few that I enjoy using. I continue to educate myself and attend seminars to keep me up to date with the latest trends in therapy. My style is very laid back and open. I am very warm, empathetic with a great sense of humor. I want you to feel relaxed and comfortable.

As for me personally, I reside in upstate New York with my husband and three children. I enjoy the outdoors, cooking, baking, crossfit, and watching sports (football is my favorite). Aside from my family life, I have found therapy to be very beneficial to me personally. Over the years I have struggled with anxiety and depression and found speaking to someone about my struggles has helped me make positive changes in my life.

Thank you for visiting my page. I am looking forward to developing a therapeutic relationship that will help you make those positive changes in your life.

She is incredible and super personable! Love that she has anxiety herself, it makes it so relatable! And provides amazing advice on how to over come anxiety and the difficulties in life

Written by S.U. on Nov 03, 2018 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Jen is a very compassionate, patient, counsellor and always has insightful thoughts and advice to share. She's helped me with a very interactive approach: sharing modules to fill out, linking me to articles and youtube videos; etc. Would definitely recommend her if you are having problems with self esteem, OCD, anxiety, or depression.

Jennifer is such an attentive and compassionate counselor. She's not judgmental, and she tries her best to understand what your key concerns are. She gives meaningful advice and helpful tips. I really felt like I was talking to a friend! She helped me achieve a better state of mind.

I think Jen is very supportive and understands how I’m feeling very well. She gives me great advice that I feel I can take away and put into practice and it seems to work great for me.

I have nothing but good things to say. I feel very lucky to have found her.

I really feel like Jen gives me the space to communicate in my time and makes me feel heard. I like that I did not have to wait weeks to have an intake meeting. I love that I can respond when I have time. There are weeks where I don't have time to talk, and there are weeks where we can write messages back and forth on multiple days. I love that when school starts I don't have to worry about trying to set up meeting times. I am going from 6:30 in the morning until 6:30 at night on usually days, and as a teacher I can't really take of time during the week to have an hour sit down meeting. There are so many pieces that makes using this type of forum work better for me. I have told my family about me doing online counseling and my sister has even passed on my positive experience with her friends, one who was especially interested because they had been waiting over a month just to get started with office visits.

I've been working with Jennifer over the last 2 years and she is fantastic! She has a great ability to listen to what is being said and offer great advice and insights in a judgement-free way. I've come to think of her as a trusted friend. I have and will continue to recommend her to my friends and family.

Jen is great to talk to, she is very helpful and understanding. I feel
very comfortable opening up to Jen about my problems and I feel even though we have been talking a short time, I'm starting to see progress already.

Written by T.A on Jan 18, 2017 after counseling with Jennifer for 3 weeks

I was worried when I started this therapy that the responses would be somewhat generic and impersonal. But no, Jennifer is real and very attentive, she responds quickly and she is warm and friendly.

Written by A.L on Jan 12, 2017 after counseling with Jennifer for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I've only had a few weeks with Jennifer Moragas thus far but I'm in a much better place mentally than when I first started. I was very skeptical and even nervous whenever I'd get a new message from her but now I'm very happy when I do because I know it's a step in the right direction and she knows the exact questions to ask to make me come to terms with my issues and tackle them in a very positive light and that has overall made me a much happier person.

Written by G.E on Jun 14, 2016 after counseling with Jennifer for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

Jen has been great. In the beginning I felt very nervous and self conscious every time I saw I had a new message, however every time I open one up it is supportive and understanding which dissipates the tension immediately. I now feel much more comfortable opening up and Jen is helping me work through some tough on-going issues.

Jennifer is more than a counselor to me, she's a friend that I haven't had in a very long time. I'm able to deal with my issues, and I feel much better thanks to her help.

I cannot express how much just a few sessions with Jen has helped me. While we have a way to go, I feel so much better already and look forward to logging on and reading her responses. It is especially helpful to go back and reread our previous sessions. I feel 100% better already.
