Psychotherapist

Professional statement

Cognitive behavior therapy is an active type of treatment focused on learning how our thoughts affect our emotions and behavior. I like to think of it as being a “detective of your mind,” where you learn how to examine your thoughts. We typically accept our thoughts to be true, to be fact. What if our thoughts are unhelpful, distorted or dysfunctional? What if they are not true? For me, what has really stuck is that we do not have to work so hard at changing how we feel because we do not control our feelings! It is an impossible feat because nobody would ever choose depressed or angry; rather, the focus is on experimenting with looking at things differently and changing our behavior. It is this concept that has been life-changing for me and my clients over the years. I completed my training at New York University, the Beck Institute of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and the Ellis Institute of Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Prior to transitioning into private practice, I was the Director of Mental Health at a network of community mental health centers both managing and providing mental health services to adults, adolescents and children. It was in this setting that I started to specialize in working with depression and anxiety and honed my skills in a variety of types of therapeutic models that are evidence-based such as cognitive behavior therapy. Outside of practicing therapy, I live in Brooklyn, enjoy a good run, paint as much as I can, and drink too many lattes and not enough water.

I visited Jennifer for the first time on 8/1. My first 2 sessions were a little broad-viewed as she explained she needed to get some idea of why I was coming in and some background. Now that I've had my 3rdsession, I am really pleased with her! I'm horrible at "talking about my feelings" and her approach with activities and working through projects was really enlightening and helpful. She even gave me some stuff to work on at home inbetween sessions. As someone who dreaded talking about what's going on inside my head, I find myself eager to get back and work on things.

Jennifer is a very warm and empathetic person and especially strong on professional challenges. For me cognitive behavior therapy was very effective. I found it very useful that she explains the methods she uses and seems to support that withcurrent research. She is very patient and follows up on previous sessions through homework and/or summaries.

Jennifer’s great! Working with her has been an ongoing journey of new learning’s and discoveries – challenging at times yet a very beneficial experience and well worth the investment. I find it easy talking to Jennifer and feel supported, heardand understood. After a session, I leave feeling more positive and motivated about taking the necessary steps to better manage my difficulties and improve my situation. I definitely recommend her!

I appreciate Jennifer's focus on practical exercises to work on the behaviors and issues we discuss during our sessions. Having homework between each session is helping me make changes in how I think and helps me to understand my behaviors andemotions. I can see the results from her action-oriented approach. I also really appreciate her calming and friendly demeanor.

I've been seeing Jennifer for a year and love her flexibility with scheduling, her timeliness, and most importantly, her CBT approach works ideally for me. The logical, methodical approach with literal worksheets to fill out, and homework,is the best possible approach for a non-touchy-feely, results and action driven approach to therapy. She has a thoughtful and non-judgmental demeanor that has worked great for me.

Not great. Shes not a great therapist still very much relying on what she learned in school. And not that intelligent or perceptive.

Jennifer is wonderful. I find her calming and practical advice hugely valuable. CBT is a useful process and means I can apply what I learn with Jennifer to my daily life. I would highly recommend Jennifer and thank her for all her time and support over the past few months.

I have mixed feelings. For many people, working with Jennifer could be helpful. Personally, it didn't really go anywhere. I didn't see results and didn't necessarily figure out how to move forward. I came up with some ideas on my ownbut I didn't feel meaningful encouragement or a whole lot of building on the ideas. It's hard to guide yourself when you aren't super confident in your ideas. Ultimately the counseling is rather open-ended so if you have a clear idea of where you want to go, Jennifer may help you.

Very satisfied in my first visit. The doctor assessed me for the entire appointment (first appointment) and I felt she was able to get a grasp on why I am attending therapy. She has a lovely manner and a very cleanquaint office located 5/10 minutes from my office which makes it very convenient.

This was my first time seeing a therapist so I did not know what to expect. Jennifer made me feel very comfortable, like I was talking to a friend, not being judged or pressured in any way. I'm looking forward to going back.

I was a little confused trying to find her office in the building. Once I got to her office, I was very pleased as she greeted me warmly and had a big couch to get comfortable on. I felt very comfortablewith her and look forward to our next visit.
