I use somatic methods and talk therapy to create a space for inquiry, exploration and acceptance of emotions and challenge.
Hi, I'm Jenny. Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed or deeply concerned about life situations, change, or a loss. Maybe you don’t even know how you feel but know it is time to reach out for help. Maybe you are missing something in the past or feeling not up to the future. You are not alone in this. These moments are some of the most important in a life, and it is easier to face them with support. That is where therapy can start. “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” -Carl Rogers.

With the use of a person-centered approach and cognitive-behavioral techniques, I support teens and adults overwhelmed by trauma and experiences that deny the individual from reaching self- acceptance .
Sometimes we encounter struggles that make the world a more difficult place to navigate. Feeling like you are rooted in self-doubt? Can't seem to quiet the negative thoughts in your mind? You are aware of your pain, but are unsure how to release it? I believe you deserve to live a life that is free from pain and suffering. I am here to prudently reflect the skills and strengths that you currently possess, but have difficulty accessing. I remain non-judgmental in the room and approach matters from a perspective of cultural sensitivity, allyship, and mindfulness.

I use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, and acceptance -based approaches ( ACT and DBT) to increase flexibility in thinking and behavior, while understanding how relationship dynamics impact your life.
Therapy can provide new perspectives during a time when the world seems disconnected and life feels overwhelming. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I provide evidence-based psychotherapies for individuals struggling with anxiety, stress, panic attacks, depression, self-esteem, relationship issues, and life transitions. Living a life consistent with our values is a common, and often elusive, goal. To support my clients in this endeavor, I integrate evidence-based psychotherapies with relational and process-oriented techniques.

My goal is to provide a safe, supportive and open space that is trauma-informed and unique to each individual I meet. As a therapist, I have supported young children, teens, adults, and families with complex and diverse needs, and who hold varied and intersecting identities. I approach my practice in an intentionally anti-oppressive and person-centered way, and I value forming strong therapeutic relationships that allow for self-exploration as well as strengthening practical skills in a way that is healthy and specific to each individual.

It’s normal to feel unwell in an unjust world. Many of us are struggling to find care that recognizes the political in mental health, encourages creativity and difference, and focuses on experience over diagnosis. I aim to honor and meet these needs. If you’re feeling miserable or something’s not right, the problem isn’t that you’re too sensitive, sick in the head, “getting in your own way,” not thinking positively, or not trying hard enough. You are not failing at being happy.

In creating a compassionate therapeutic relationship, we will begin to explore your thoughts, emotions and behaviors. I aim to work alongside you in developing goals and a greater understanding of your past, the effect it has on your present and how we can develop healthy coping mechanisms to ensure that your future goals are met.

Hello everyone, please welcome and allow me to first begin in thanking you. The choice to start therapy isn’t always easy, sometimes it is the most difficult thing to do is to even consider it, then admit you want/need it before even taking the steps to start, but you are not alone on this journey. Perhaps there has been times that you have found yourself feeling stressed, down, lacking confidence, or stuck in a pattern that no longer serves you. Perhaps you’re ready to take steps toward changes but feel stuck or unsure where to start. Or even feeling lost in your relationships in life or even disconnected from them.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings.

ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Ridgewood or for a Ridgewood ACT therapist these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counselors.
