About Wellness Counseling

Dr. Jennifer Politis


At Wellness Counseling, based in New Jersey, we offer support for children, teens, couples, adults and families. We support clients going through a difficult transition at home or school. We assist clients who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and self-doubt. Our therapists comfort clients navigate a challenging situation and look forward to working with clients to achieve their goals.

Our belief is that we can’t change difficult situations of the past, but we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges.

Our office strives to meet my clients’ emotional needs in order to understand their world-views, experiences and struggles. It is a privilege to accompany a client towards a journey of well-being. Therapy can inspire positive change in the lives of clients.

Although it is important to discuss past issues we believe much change can occur by not rehashing the past and creating ways to move forward. By applying different therapy approaches and techniques, we will alter long-standing behavior patterns and negative perceptions that hold clients back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

When needed, our therapists partner with guidance counselors, teachers and administrators to access the resources they need. And we collaborate with pediatricians, school nurses, psychiatrists and other medical professionals to help our clients manage anxiety, depression and other issues.

From managing major transitions like relocating and divorce to improving family dynamics, we help clients reconnect with their inner strength, reduce anxiety and conflict, heal their relationships and rediscover the joy in their lives.

Wellness Counseling is a private therapy practice specializing in encouraging children, families and adults in making flourishing decisions and positive change in their lives.

Our goal is for you to embrace your inner resilience.

With Gratitude,

Dr. Jennifer Politis

Be yourself and think for yourself; and while your conclusions may not be infallible, they will be nearer right than the conclusions forced upon you.

Absolutely in love with the Wellness Counseling Group in Ramsey!! Dr. Jen helped my children with a transition for divorce and middle school to high school! Don’t hesitate to help your little angels if you’ve been thinking about it. Dr. Jen provided us with the compassion and gentleness I prayed for!

Ali Whitney is everything you would want out of a therapist - she listens, validates your thoughts/experiences, and creates a safe space. She truly wants the best for you and will give you all the tools and resources you need to leave with meaningful, positive results. If you have the opportunity to make an appointment with her- do it! You will not regret it 🙂

Dr. Jennifer Politis has been my family therapist for the last 8 years. She has worked with me, my husband and my two children. We are a more connected family because of her. Over the years we have worked on communicating better and helping with our divorce. I can’t thank her enough and I am so thankful she is still in our lives.

Jen Cruz who answers the phone is so nice and helpful. Ms. Cruz explained my insurance information and took the time to call me back. I called so many therapists/therapy offices and kept leaving messages and never heard back! I was so appreciative she answered the phone! I graduated college and needed to talk to someone. So happy I found them. I already told two of my friends.

Dr. Politis is such an amazing psychologist! She has helped my daughter so much with her depression. In a year’s time my daughter is back to herself again. I can’t recommend her and her practice, Wellness Counseling of Bergen County more!!
