Jenny is a Licensed Individual Clinical Social Worker practicing in Rhode Island and New York City. Jenny works with individuals who are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, or stress brought on by life transitions. She has developed a special interest in working with young adults, and parents and caregivers of school aged youth.
Jenny’s approach is collaborative, and rooted in psychodynamic theory and embraces aspects of narrative therapy, relational therapy, trauma informed care (including acute, systemic, and complex trauma), and motivational interviewing. Her style is warm, supportive, interactive, and curious. Jenny believes the therapeutic relationship is essential to the therapeutic process and healing - she prioritizes creating a safe, trusting, and inclusive space where clients can begin to value, explore, and understand their many parts. In deepening these understandings, many find a greater sense of fulfillment and clarity in navigating their personal and professional lives.
Currently, Jenny is seeing all of her clients virtually over video conferencing platforms.
