Jennifer Schliessman, LMSW
I have developed knowledge on various types of therapy and can understand the daily stresses of living in a hectic and demanding Manhattan lifestyle. I aim to help my clients develop a positive outlook and provide empathy and support for them to ultimately maintain success. I believe that the therapeutic alliance is essential to the healing process and I strive to create a trusting environment where clients feel safe to share their innermost feelings and experiences. I have experience working with a wide assortment of populations and I aim to create a nonjudgmental and warm atmosphere where my clients can explore their thoughts and emotions in a safe setting.
I bring positive energy to my approach and utilize a strength based person centered style to present clients to work on daily challenges to bring about positive change. My approach is interactive, compassionate and I work to customize my style towards the dynamics of each individual. I provide individual therapy and have a passion for working with young adults, helping them face daily struggles and transitions during this phase of life. I have a strong interest in health and wellness and I utilize an eclectic approach utilizing modalities such as cognitive behavioral techniques, mind-body therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and holistic approaches.
