Jennifer Collins is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in New York. Jennifer enjoys helping adults and couples navigate difficult transitions. Many of her clients have recently left home to attend college, and are figuring out how to live a more independent life. This includes developing a greater sense of identity and engaging in mature relationships, which can come with feelings of anxiety. Jennifer also works with adults who are going through relationship challenges, career transitions, parenting stress, divorces/ break-ups, financial stress, and loss/bereavement. These situations can lead to anxiety, depression, or elevated stress levels.
Jennifer’s approach to working with clients is holistic, incorporating both the mind and the body into the healing process. Jennifer is a Certified Yoga Instructor and has expertise in trauma-informed yoga, as well as Phoenix Rising Yoga. She encourages clients to practice breathwork and other mindfulness techniques to grow their self awareness. Jennifer also practices Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a thoughts-based therapy modality that helps clients identify and suppress negative thought patterns. These thought patterns might look like misguided beliefs or perceptions, or like harmful self-talk. By examining these thought patterns and finding healthy alternatives, clients increase their confidence and understanding of who they are and what their story is.
Jennifer earned a Master’s degree in Social Work. She helps clients to recognize their own strengths and to use their strengths to improve their mental health and wellbeing. Jennifer takes a humanistic approach to working with clients and is passionate about bringing about healing to both the mind and body.
