all about Jennifer

Jennifer created Manhattan Wellness, a boutique psychotherapy practice, for young professionals to receive well-rounded care, and to support them in optimizing their life so it’s a life they LOVE - not just one that’s about checking off boxes and surface-level achievements. With mentions in Cosmopolitan and Oprah magazine, along with her master’s degree from Columbia University, Jennifer has not only created a space for therapeutic healing - she has created a movement that changes the landscape of therapy and counseling.

Jennifer guides both her growing staff and her clients based on the concept of two individuals coming together and stripping away the labels of “Therapist” and “Client.” She has combined her clinical expertise, business savvy and highly impactful relationship building skills to transform what it means to go to therapy. Collaborative, holistic and client-focused care is revolutionary in the therapy world - and Manhattan Wellness is leading the way. Jennifer's practice is built on the belief that if you're willing to challenge your current way of life, anything is possible.

how she works

Your sessions will instill security, and confidence into every aspect of your life. Nothing is “too trivial” or “too much”- you will dive deep into all realms life; whether that be dating, career stresses, and quarter life challenges. Gone are the days of unrelatable, tight-lipped therapy- Jennifer believes in the power of “getting real” and she employs a direct, humanistic, solution-focused approach with her clients.

Jennifer’s practice was built on the belief that if you’re willing to challenge your current way of living, anything is possible. In actively working together, you will take an explorative approach on your mentality, to empower, discover, heal and change with Jennifer.

Jennifer prefers clients to think of her as a trusted confidant who has professional training to help identify blocks and learn techniques to make changes. This highly supportive approach, coupled with her Master’s degree from Columbia University and many years of experience provides clients with the kind of therapeutic partnership that many young professionals are looking for. 

By discussing experiences, challenges and motivations, she is able to create techniques tailored specifically to the client. Jennifer and clients correct mental blockages together in real-time and discover their true roots– to unearth defense mechanisms and realign with purpose. As a result, clients become inspired to make powerful strides towards a more fulfilled self. This is therapy that provides results.

Whether you’re struggling with self-esteem, aren’t sure why you can’t seem to find the right partner or know you need to stop repeating the same harmful patterns over and over, Jennifer has your back and will hold you accountable to move forward. Jennifer is here to help you authentically thrive, to become more than you could ever imagine.

talking to jennifer felt like catching up with your best friend

She immediately met me with compassion, love and understanding. Jen is not someone who sits there and asks “And how does that make you feel?” Until the session is over. She jumps in with personal stories, quips and the ever-so-needed “I know what you’re going through.”

i finally found jennifer and it was an immediate connection

I felt comfortable as soon as I walked into her office because she is undeniably warm, non-judgmental and truly compassionate. She has been a pillar in my life, allowing me to trust her with my most vulnerable moments.

i was immediately heard

As a twenty-something woman in New York City, finding a therapist who is both experienced and qualified to deep-dive into the day-to-day issues millennials face today, while having a genuine relatable touch, is quite a challenge. She could sense the initial hesitation and skepticism in my voice, and swiftly moved past it with confidence and actual conversation.

she has never shown up with less than her best for a session

Some practitioners may do the work for you, but Jennifer will do it alongside of you. I never felt alone, and always felt empowered to show up more and more for myself. Results: There is nothing as powerful as waking up in the morning, looking in the mirror, and loving the person I see.
