I work with a variety of concerns and strive to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere. The areas that have been my main focus are as follows: substance abuse, trauma, and depression. My goal is to be present for the challenges you are facing. Second, it is my priority to ensure a collaborative relationship throughout treatment.
It is sometimes very challenging to make change and this can feel overwhelming. While I do work with many different issues, my main areas of focus are: drug and alcohol dependency and PTSD. My priority is to help individuals through this process. It is an honor to see clients find meaning and purpose through the recovery process.
Therapy is a place for you to challenge yourself. The therapy relationship is a process that both facilitates healing and self-awareness.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jennifer Dobrin Shields. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Jenn has been a huge influence to me and my personal growth this year! Whether is profound deep realizations or a shared safe space, I feel cleansed after our sessions. There are so many good things to say about her as a person and therapist.
Jennifer is an amazing person. I’ve always been skeptical about therapy because I didn’t think it will truly help. Meeting Jennifer reminded me of why it’s necessary. She is very compassionate and supports what works for you while checking in between scheduled times. I highly recommend Jenn for her work!
Very pleased with this service and my provider. Thank you!
Jen listens and answers my questions in a timely manner before and after a session. She supports me 100 percent and is completely invested.
Jennifer is a very good therapist
Jennifer has been amazing! She has listened to my story, really helped me work through stress and anxiety after my accident and has provided me many different outlets and tools to control my stress accordingly. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional pair of ears
Jenn has been a lifesaver this past year of working with her. Throughout this year of working with Jenn, I have learned to have more self-compassion for myself, to trust my gut more, and to communicate more effectively in relationships.
I can always count on Jenn to write back to me in a timely manner, on the same day, ask me thought provoking questions to shift my mindset a little bit, and for her to speak up if I am not in line with my values, or morals.
Jenn has a wide variety of experience in a bunch of different fields, so having this experience has allowed her to dive deeper into all the different issues that have arose in my life this past year, and trust that she knows exactly what I'm saying and going through.
Thanks Jenn for being my confidant this past year - I have gained so much out of our time together each week.
I was really surprised about how in depth this therapy can really be. Jenn really likes to focus on your needs and it good at tackling problems one at a time, while being observant of other challenging problems you may face. It is nice to submit journals throughout the week and have her comment and support you through those moments. I feel she does really care about her clients and wants to help as many people as she is able too.
Jennifer has been very understanding and kind about her advice and resources she provides me. She has a very good understanding of what I am looking for.
Jennifer is very compassionate and helpful. I would recommend her to anyone I know that is struggling or just needs to talk to a professional. She genuinely cares about her clients and provides the best experience possible.
