Jennie Chung MSW, LCSW
I am a NYS Licensed Psychotherapist providing high-quality evidence-based therapy to adolescents, adults and families. My areas of specialty include helping people rapidly recover from anxiety, depression, trauma, OCD, and relationship issues. I provide a warm, respectful and non-judgmental environment where individuals can comfortably engage in a collaborative relationship and learn powerful skills to reach their goals.
My approach is interactive, empathic and strengths-based. I utilize culturally sensitive and evidence-based methods with an emphasis on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and in particular, TEAM-CBT which can lead to dramatic improvement in a very short period of time. This approach, which does require consistent effort and work from the patient, empowers individuals to change thinking patterns and self-defeating beliefs while acquiring lifelong skills to cope with problems more effectively and return to joyful living.
I hold a Masters in Social Work, Health & Mental Health from Hunter College in New York and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The College of New Jersey in Ewing. I have worked in a variety of environments and I have developed strong therapeutic skills applied to adult and youth populations in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I have experience in providing supportive and educational services to individuals, families, and groups of diverse ethnic and demographic backgrounds.
