Jennifer Amar is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Westchester, New York, who works with adolescents, adults and families. She specializes in anxiety, depression, eating disorders, college students and young adult issues.
Clients often come to Jennifer when they’re facing transitional hurdles such as employment stressors, relocating to a new home, relationships, parenting, and other personal and professional transitions into independence. They may also seek her support for managing a profound lack of motivation, perfectionism, self-esteem, and the stress of dealing with high expectations and pressures of school, work and family life.
Jennifer’s approach is engaging and authentic; she often weaves skills-based methodology from modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) into a less-structured session. She also incorporates life coaching into sessions, which can inspire clients to set and activate personal goals in their lives.
Jennifer understands that building a trusting relationship is vital to each client’s success in therapy, and she dedicates genuine energy towards nurturing that trust. She also wants to make her practice as accessible as possible, and can discuss with each client ways to make sessions work individually and with sensitivity to busy schedules and the value of time.
