Jennifer Shrier is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, in both New Jersey and New York. She is a graduate of Cornell University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Development & Family Studies, and received her Masters in Social Work from New York University in 2002. She has been Board certified in Social Work as an LCSW since 2006.
Over the past several years, Jennifer Shrier has been in private practice, working with both adolescents and adults on a variety of issues, including anxiety, depression, self esteem, body image, and personal relationship problems. She is particularly passionate about improving clients’ self esteem and enabling emerging adults and adults to adjust to role changes, career and family pressures and anxiety.
She creates a nonjudgemental supportive environment, and her therapeutic approach is person-centered, client-focused, and insight-oriented. She finds what is most-relevant in her work with her clients is their perspective of their own lives. We all have the potential for growth, and change. With guidance and support, we can achieve greater clarity, an understanding of ourselves, our hopes, our goals, and feel our best.
Jennifer’s previous experience includes her work as a psychiatric social worker at two different psychiatric hospitals, where she worked with adolescents, adults, and their families. She provided individual, group, and family counseling on a wide array of social and emotional issues, including trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction, and grief. Jennifer has also worked at a college counseling center, where she saw undergraduate and graduate students on personal, social, cultural, and academic issues. She also conducted individual and couples therapy, and provided education and awareness of psychosocial issues.
Presently, she is in private practice in two locations; Ridgewood, NJ and Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn. She specializes with emerging adults and adults. As a woman who has gone through life’s transitions from young adulthood, to adulthood, and motherhood, she understands the role changes within family relationships and the overwhelming responsibilities and stress to manage in our daily lives.
