Message from Jenn

Currently, I am a Master’s level Counseling student at New York University's Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness program. Additionally, I am receiving my advanced certificate in LGBT Health, Education, and Social Services. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I am well-versed in the life experiences of queer individuals in NYC. My therapeutic specialties include treating anxiety and depression, working with LGBTQ+ individuals, identity exploration, healing from domestic trauma, fostering emotional and physical intimacy, and creative arts expression. Personal growth is a lifelong endeavor through which we naturally encounter obstacles. Whether you are enduring difficult life transitions, trying to make sense of your experiences, or navigating tricky interpersonal relationships, you don’t have to figure it all out on your own. Therapy is a space to work towards clarity in an empathetic, thoughtful, and authentic manner. I approach therapy from a holistic, person-centered, and integrated relational orientation. Looking at ourselves in the context of individual, interpersonal, and cultural cycles allows us to more clearly understand our life experiences and internal reactions. I employ CBT and mindfulness techniques in service of fostering coping skills, insight, and balance. ​I welcome the opportunity to work with you!

Get to Know Jenn

How should I prepare for my first session with you?

Plan to set aside any distractions for the duration of our session. Healing progresses so much more quickly when we make intentional space for it! There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do therapy. I’ll meet you where you are, however you are, on the day of our session.

How can you tell if I am feeling stuck, unseen, or unheard?

I always ask! My goal is to create a space in which you feel comfortable expressing when or if a particular technique or approach isn’t working for you. There are many types of people and many types of therapy. I aim to find the match that works for you!

How can you tell if I am benefiting from working with you?

When you feel like you’re getting closer to your therapeutic goals! I am very upfront about my treatment planning with clients so that they have an idea of what to expect. It’s important that you feel that you have an equal say in your treatment because you’re the expert on you!

What is the best part of the work for you?

I find that humor is oftentimes incredibly healing. While it’s important to give ourselves the space to feel our emotions in their entirety, laughter is one of the best coping tools we have to navigate life’s uncertainties. Therapeutic work can be quite difficult, and sometimes injecting the process with some levity makes it more manageable and sustainable.

How will our relationship be different than relationships I have with friends/loved ones?

The therapeutic relationship is unique in that it doesn’t resemble any other relationship that you may already have in your life. We all have roles, responsibilities, and expectations in life. But, because I exist outside of your social and familial circles, I can provide the space for you to freely explore yourself in ways that may not be currently accessible to you. My therapist training allows me to aid this exploration process in a safe, informed, and healthy manner.

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

Newcomers to therapy may be surprised at their emotional reaction to the process! I describe it as a strange balance between the relief and catharsis of healing and the natural discomfort of growing. That being said, everyone will have a different experience. The fast paced nature of modern life very rarely affords the luxury to process at our own pace. Because of this, aspects of ourselves that need to be addressed get relegated to the unconscious and hinder our ability to fully engage with the world.If you are feeling unhappy, stuck, or distressed in your life, that may be a sign to try therapy!

From your perspective, what is therapy?

Therapy is a process of making sense of your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and life experiences in order to heal and grow. As a therapist, I collaborate with you to help identify patterns and explore alternatives in a warm, non-judgemental environment. My goal is to help you to better understand yourself and to develop new coping methods and skills so that you can more fully and authentically engage with the world around you.
