About Dr. Jen

Dr. Jen

Welcome to my practice!

I offer counseling and strategies to improve communication skills and increase feelings of trust, connection, and satisfaction. Our work together can reduce feelings of stress, anxiety, and/or depression.

I have particular expertise in anxiety, depression, pregnancy & post-partum support, parenting solutions, career, school, family and transitions across the life cycle for children, adolescents and adults.

As a therapist (Licensed Professional Counselor, NJ, LPC# 37PC00444800), I have honed my counseling skills for over ten years through ongoing training and private practice work. Previously, I worked in the school system as a counselor, psychologist and administrator. I have experience in psychological testing and counseling, children and adolescents, developmental issues, learning and educational difficulties, curriculum development, college and career placement, and psychological research. I have also worked in mental health clinics and college counseling centers. I published journal articles and presented at numerous conferences on issues related to creative problem- solving, positive mood’s impact on learning, the counseling relationship and multicultural issues.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Marymount University, and later earned my Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology and Doctoral Degree in Educational Psychology from Fordham University.

My other professional memberships include the American Counseling Association, American Psychological Association, American School Counseling Association and the American Educational Research Association.
