S. Jenny Klein, PsyD

Message from S. Jenny

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who provides mental health services to individuals seeking psychotherapy to help navigate life stressors and transitions. Specializing in anxiety, depression, and burnout, I integrate cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic practices to help my clients gain insight, create change, and improve well-being. I also serve as mentor and supervisor to psychology doctoral trainees at Long Island University-Post. Full bio: Dr. S. Jenny Klein earned her Doctorate in Psychology from Long Island University-Post and served as Licensed Clinical Psychologist and Unit Coordinator at New York Health + Hospitals/Jacobi Inpatient Unit before entering private practice. Paving the way to her current role, is a broad scope of experiences working with individuals from adolescents to senior adults dealing with anxiety, depression, burnout, parenting stress, trauma, personality disorders, psychosis, and bipolar disorder. Having been formally trained in both cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic approaches, Dr. Klein takes an integrative and tailored approach to providing care to her clients. As an Intern at Zucker Hillside Hospital/Northwell Hospital, Dr. Klein provided individual therapy and led skills groups using DBT-informed interventions for adolescents at high risk for self-harm and suicide, in addition to providing support and psychoeducation to families. As part of the Outpatient Perinatal team, she worked with mothers and spouses adjusting to the emotional changes and stressors of parenthood. Dr. Klein also worked closely with senior adults in the Partial Hospital Program as they transitioned back to their lives after an acute mental health episode and hospitalization. Following Internship, Dr. Klein continued on as Fellow for the Adult Inpatient Unit where she functioned as lead psychologist and consulted with a multidisciplinary team on assessment and treatment planning. She also served as Psychological Testing Supervisor for psychology trainees to assess patients for learning disability, neurological impairment, emotional difficulties, as well as provide treatment recommendations. Being an avid practitioner of yoga and fitness training, Dr. Klein incorporates practices that enhance the mind-body connection to support overall physical and mental well-being. Mindfulness meditation and sleep hygiene practices are among the tools that she uses with clients to build emotional resilience in the face of life stressors. In addition, she is currently working towards gaining further expertise in the fields of trauma and addiction, and related treatment innovations.

Get to Know S. Jenny

What are your policies and practices around insurance?

I do not accept insurance, however I do provide a Superbill for my clients to submit claims for reimbursement from their insurance provider. As this process might be confusing to navigate, I can provide instruction on this process so that clients may get started with submitting claims and receiving reimbursement.

How participatory are you during sessions?

In session, I create a supportive and accepting space for my clients to express themselves openly. With the needs of my clients at the forefront at all times, I am attuned to situations in which feedback from me would be helpful or when a quieter presence is most therapeutic. Each session is unique and my degree of participation adapts accordingly.

How should I prepare for my first session with you?

Prior to our first session, I will send you a simple intake form - through a HIPAA-compliant and secure client portal - to help identify what brings you into therapy and help me get to you know you. Aside from the requisite paperwork, I invite you to bring any questions and share information that would help make you feel comfortable.
