Professional statement

Stella Jang is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Bergen County, New Jersey and also licensed in New York and Illinois. Stella has extensive experience working with people who suffer from mood disorders, including depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Many of Stella's patients are intelligent, high achieving individuals who value the therapeutic space and relationship to explore and process their emotions so they can continue to achieve in all domains of their life.

Stella’s approach to working with individuals draws from psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories but she is well versed in utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) where warranted. Regardless of orientation, her priority is to build and maintain a strong therapeutic relationship with each person. This relationship is the basis of a meaningful and ultimately effective treatment.

Stella will be transitioning into a physical office in May 2022 and will be available for in-person office visits. The option of continuing treatment online will remain available as it is effective and convenient. Patients residing in New York and Illinois will only have the option of online therapy.


Message to clients

People think a therapist's job is to talk or give advice. In actuality, my job is to listen. Being heard by someone present and focused on you and having someone actively listen to what you are saying, and more importantly what you are trying to say is a profound experience. My job is to make it possible for you to find the words to describe and express your thoughts and feelings. I do this by how I listen, the way I ask questions, and the way I share my observations with you. You will feel the difference.

The relationship between a patient and a therapist requires chemistry and connection. You need to feel emotionally safe as well as feel like I "get you." You know what this means. When you meet someone and share a bit about yourself, you know if the other person "gets you" or does not. We all want and need to be understood a certain way. Having worked in this field for over twenty years, I have worked with people from all walks of life bearing all kinds of pain. I believe I have developed the capacity to connect with you.
