Professional statement

Jennifer Breslow is a Licensed Creative Arts Therapist based in New York City, currently seeing clients virtually in NY, NJ and PA. She focuses on anxiety, relationship challenges (in particular anxious attachment), trauma, loss and grief (including pet loss). She also has expertise in working with individuals touched by addiction in some way, whether they are in active recovery or have a parent or family member with substance use issues. Having previously worked in a residential drug treatment facility, Jennifer brings extensive clinical experience in this area to her private practice. She gently guides clients toward a place of healing and growth by helping them to examine patterns that are no longer working and finding new ways of being in the world.

Clients who see Jennifer include those who are drawn to drama and have a hard time shifting those patterns; high achievers who struggle to connect fully to themselves and to others; and individuals who are concerned with what others think of them and try to please everyone at the expense of their own wellbeing. Jennifer works with these clients on self-esteem, perfectionism, and setting healthy boundaries.

Jennifer draws upon various treatment modalities including art therapy, mindfulness practices, and sensorimotor therapy. She offers clients the option to create art in sessions, a process that can help clients express themselves in unique, creative ways and discover insights about the unconscious mind. Through mindfulness practices, she highlights the mind-body connection so clients learn to be more fully connected to their bodies’ sensations and feelings. She is dedicated to creating a safe space for clients to feel fully in control of their lives, have more meaningful relationships, and find joy in themselves and in authentic, healthy, and secure connections.

Jennifer sees young adults, college and graduate students, and adults.


Message to clients

Taking the first step to start therapy is the hardest part, but it means that deep inside you are ready for change. Change is not easy, but with a supportive therapist by your side, it can become easier.

It's my privilege to walk along side you on your journey to live more authentically. I believe almost all behaviors were at one point a coping strategy, so I really help you cultivate compassion toward yourself in how you regard the aspects of your life you want to change.

As an art therapist, I can offer you another set of tools to help you step out of your head and find another way of knowing yourself. Using art in our sessions is not at all required (and you don't have to be a good artist!) but it's an avenue available to you should you want to explore it. Although my sessions are currently all virtual, there are still ways to incorporate art therapy should you wish.

Please send me an email to make an initial contact. I look forward to connecting with you.

Client testimonials

"I’ve been in therapy in the past and had been doing well on my own for a few years. Then this year, I’ve had quite a few major events that have left me in a really low place. I was able to get an appointment with Jennifer Breslow at a key time in my life, and I’ve already found her help extremely valuable. I’m still figuring out how to feel like myself again, but my sessions with Jennifer have helped me feel like I’ve avoided total rock bottom, and I’m working on building skills to make sure I can lead a more stable life no matter what my situation may be."
