Professional statement

Jennifer Grin is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey who specializes in anxiety, depression, life transitions, trauma, and relationship concerns. Her practice is open to individuals from all walks of life, and she frequently works with young adults and working professionals.

Clients often seek Jennifer's support when facing a significant transition, such as graduation or a relationship shift. Others are grappling with substance use concerns and other coping methods that are not serving them. Jennifer's approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a skills-based modality that helps clients learn to identify and replace cognitive distortions that might be harming them or holding them back.

Jennifer's collaborative and multifaceted approach empowers clients with a broader perspective of what triggers their symptoms, and how unhelpful thought patterns might be contributing to undesired behaviors.

Jennifer has a physical practice in Montclair, and she is also working with clients across NJ and NY via telehealth. Jennifer is warm, compassionately curious, and dedicated to her clients. She looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

Have you ever thought about what it would it feel like to maximize the meaning and joy in your life? If the answer is yes, then let’s work together to help you discover and meet your life goals. It does not matter how old we are, it is never too late. Life goals can include increasing self-esteem, investing in healthier relationships, decreasing anxiety and depression, career transitions, improving work or school performance, and experiencing an overall sense of enhanced well-being.

My style is warm, supportive and non-judgmental, but I will push you to take a deeper look at how your experiences have shaped your thoughts and behaviors and have held you back. Through understanding these experiences, we can gain insight into your current behaviors, identify the barriers to your success, and help you gain confidence to achieve your goals.
