I’m a great listener, detective and motivator here to support clients to be the hero in their own story. My therapeutic approach is to point out your blindspots and help you uncover the depths of yourself you keep hidden from those closest around you. I support you to make the changes in your life that will bring you more meaning.

I’m passionate about challenging your deep rooted beliefs. Together, we’ll explore and identify beliefs that may be holding you back. I confront you to change your language and change your beliefs, therefore changing your life. The interplay of how we speak and think of ourselves plays out in all of our interactions and I help guide you in discovering this.

My ultimate goal is for you to walk out of our sessions feeling lighter and having an epiphany that you will take with you in your day to day interactions to empower you. I want to equip you with the tools to regulate your emotional hygiene and create better mental fortitude. Life is not what happens to us, it is about how we respond to what happens to us. Becoming better equipped to handle life’s challenges will acquire a life filled with fulfillment and meaningful connections.

As James Lane Allen wisely said, “You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take 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 🙂

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!!

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.
