Professional statement

Dr. S. Jenny Klein is a licensed psychologist in New York, NY specializing in helping adults and adolescents experiencing a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, loss, burnout, and life transitions. Many of her clients struggle with feeling stuck inside shame and fear, being overwhelmed with their emotions, and managing heightened emotional responses such as anger, sadness, and insecurity. Dr. Klein works with her clients to better understand what the current challenges are, in which ways they are manifesting, and how to confront these issues in a meaningful and lasting way.

Dr. Klein takes an integrative approach grounded in cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic frameworks to assess problem areas and collaboratively find solutions. This approach aims to help clients gain insight into their internal experience which may include harmful thought patterns and behaviors. Her method enables clients to build better coping and communication skills to modify their responses, modulate their emotions, and reduce suffering. She is a strengths-based therapist, which means that she believes wholeheartedly that each client has unique strengths that they bring into session. Together, Dr. Klein and her clients leverage these strengths to guide and empower them to manage difficulties and step into their authentic selves, allowing them to live more fully and effectively.

Dr. Klein earned her doctorate in psychology from Long Island University-Post Campus. She has served individuals from teens to senior adults in a variety of acute and sub-acute settings. She understands how important it is to find the right approach to help face current challenges, and is committed to making her space a safe harbor for any who need it while they begin their journey of healing.


Message to clients

As a licensed psychologist, I walk alongside you to guide and empower you to manage difficulties and utilize personal strengths to overcome barriers and reach your goals. You may feel ready for change but are in need of tools to clarify, cope with, and overcome challenges that stand in the way of living more effectively and meaningfully. From session one, I work with you to better understand what the current challenges are, in which ways they are manifesting, and how you may confront these issues in a self-compassionate and nonjudgmental way.

My practice specializes in helping you deepen your understanding of yourself and the ways in which you interact with your environment - including partners, families, coworkers, and the world. I take an integrative approach grounded in cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic frameworks to assess problem areas and collaboratively find solutions.

Making a choice to face your challenges is an important first step and the good news is, you are taking that step now! I invite you to reach out to me to begin a conversation. Therapy is a path to lasting change and renewed hope. Together, we will explore what your short-term and longer-term needs are and if there is a fit that works for you.
