Jennifer Black, MSW, LCSW
While much of my therapeutic practice derives from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Family Systems strategies, a core piece of my approach is the understanding that each client deserves an individualized care plan. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults living with anxiety and mood challenges. As much of my practice involves working with children, I also specialize in supporting parents, caregivers, and families in nurturing their mental health and self care, recognizing their crucial role in supporting the success of their kiddos.
My Therapy Beliefs
I believe therapy is a dynamic process, an ongoing exchange of thoughts, ideas, and skill development between client and therapist. To establish the important foundations of trust and safety in the therapeutic environment, I believe in a client-centered approach. Working as a team, together we’ll explore areas for support and set therapy goals. No two people consider, integrate, or connect with a skill set in the exact same way. My professional intentions are to incorporate evidenced based therapy practice with an individualized approach, designing a best fit for client needs.
My therapeutic focus is with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and other mood regulation issues. Working with clients across the age span, my therapy modalities include components of play, art, and more traditional talk/process oriented strategies.
A Person-Centered Approach
Often times people want change but aren’t sure how to do it by themselves. At Peace of Mind Therapy, we take a person-centered approach to mental health so people can gain a deeper sense of self as they face life’s twists and turns. No two experiences are alike, but we’re excited to partner with you as your process the challenges you’ve experienced.
