“It’s never overreacting to ask for what you want and need.” Taking that initial step to search for a therapist is a courageous move on your healing journey, and I’m here to support you every step of the way. As a licensed social worker, my primary focus is guiding individuals towards a happier, healthier life while placing a strong emphasis on emotional well-being.

Drawing from my experience as a former college athlete, I understand the intricate balance required to meet life’s various demands. My intention is to create a safe and nurturing space for my clients, where we can embark on a journey of self-discovery while collaboratively working towards their personal goals.

Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of working with adolescents and young adults from diverse backgrounds. I firmly believe that each individual possesses the capacity for positive change. Together, we’ll explore your unique strengths and opportunities for growth.

Remember, “It’s never overreacting to ask for what you want and need.” Your well-being is of utmost importance, and I’m here to support you in advocating for yourself and achieving the positive change you seek.

When I emailed Wellness Counseling of Bergen I got an answer right away, the same day. Jennifer, the manager is amazing helping us to get an appointment the same week, and helping with everything related to insurance payments and claims. We are so thankful, blessed and fortunate to have them on our side.

Taylor is absolutely amazing! I’ve been with her for almost a full year and can attribute so many positive changes in my life to our sessions. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist:)

I highly recommend Wellness Counseling! Dr. Jen is a warm, kind-hearted, and very sincere therapist. When walking into her office, she greets you and is extremely welcoming. Her genuine care for her patients helps us feel at ease and I always feel relieved after our session. She has two office locations with several therapists that are highly qualified and can assist you with a multitude of therapy work as well, if she is not available. 5 stars for Dr. Jen and her team!!!

I spent a year working with Ali Whitney, it was a year well spent and I accomplished the goals Ali and I set throughout the year. Ali’s approach allowed me to work through feelings, emotions, and personal limitations and allowed me to overcome them in my own time, with her guidance and expertise. The new space is welcoming and relaxing and after each session I left feeling rejuvenated and ready to take on the world. Thank you so much!
