About me

My name is Terry Jensen. I hold a Masters Degree in Social Work from Rutgers University, am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in NJ and practicing for over 30 years. While finishing my degree, I also attended the Institute for Gestalt Therapy and received my certificate. My professional experience includes Foster Care, Healthcare, and children with disabilities. I have been working for BetterHelp for 2 years. I am working with clients whose ages range from 18 to 70+. I work with singles as well as couples with different lifestyles.
My process is to address the past, determine how it affects the present and work towards a positive outcome for the future. My approach is behavioral combined with psychodynamic therapy. We can focus on anxiety, depression, and adjustment to life changes.
As my client, I will treat you as an individual and provide interventions geared toward helping you achieve your goals. I am respectful and compassionate while addressing your needs and goals. Gestalt Therapy allows us to be in the present while addressing the past and modifying the behaviors for an improved future. My goal is to make you feel very comfortable and safe since divulging experiences can be difficult. Everyone willing to be courageous and work towards change needs to be treated with the utmost respect. Change is not easy, but worth the challenge. I would like the chance to work with you towards achieving these challenges.
I look forward to working with you providing support and empowerment as we work towards a positive outcome.

Terry is an amazing and proactive therapist who challenges you on your thoughts, anxieties, and the reasons behind to why you do the things you do. She is incredibly helpful and relatable with her own personal experiences

Terry has been the most authentic person I have ever spoken with. I’ve never done therapy before and have not even felt like I am in a clinical situation… instead feel like I’ve got a sounding board with experience to guide and help me reflect on what direction I want my life to go in. I can’t thank Terry enough for her honesty, compassion, and ability to see things for what they are.

Terry is amazing. She gave me the courage to make some very important changes in my life. She is patient, quick to respond, kind, and just a wonderful human being. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Terry is fantastic. She listens and understands you. She offers advice and guidance through stories of her own, so you really feel the connection. She is also a really fun, interesting person and helps me see things from different perspectives which I think is so valuable in therapy.
