Professional statement

Jenni Costello is a LCSW based in Pittsburgh, PA who works with young adults and adults. Jenni has worked as a Dietitian in Inpatient and Outpatient settings as well as a Social Worker at all levels of care. Individual therapy is where Jenni has been able to integrate these skills to best serve her clients.

Jenni is passionate about supporting individuals in life transitions, who feel overwhelmed and alone. Life is full of change including leaving home and going to college, starting a family and the postpartum experience and navigating our ever changing bodies. She helps clients realize they do not need to be fixed and to find more ease and regulation in their bodies.

Her approach is integrative and rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Polyvagal Theory. Jenni's goal is to teach clients to listen and work with their bodies instead of fight against and fix them. Her clients learn how to use their nervous system to support themselves and to find joy and connection.

Jenni aims to provide a safe, open and curious space for her clients to share and learn about themselves. It is important that her clients leave feeling that they have gained a new insight or skill each session they can take with them and apply in their lives. Jenni offers the flexibility and convenience of remote therapy sessions and sees individuals in person at her Pittsburgh office.


Message to clients

It is nice to meet you and I am so glad you are here. Life can be hard sometimes, can’t it? We can struggle with what is happening around us and we can also battle within ourselves. Whatever reason you are here, welcome. I hope to offer some hope, support and transformation in your life.

Whatever you are struggling with - anxiety, loneliness, overwhelm, challenges with food, body image, or postpartum - it is what makes you more alike than different. Connection is integral to our well being. I am committed to offering you support, compassion as well as tools and new ways of thinking to help get you through and feel better.

Please feel free to reach out for a 15 min consultation and see if working together feels like a good fit. Again, I am so glad you are here and hope you find the support you are looking for.
