DR. JEN KASHANI
Experienced. Supportive. Thoughtful.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with two main focuses:
relationship and career success.
I believe that when these two areas of our lives are given the attention they need, it opens us up to giving and receiving attention to all parts of our authentic Selves and achieving a balanced lifestyle.
The essence of my work is to facilitate self-growth by identifying the root of symptoms (i.e., depression, anxiety, eating disorders, PTSD) and using a holistic and dynamic approach to helping oneself.
A 'great fit' and positive relationship between the therapist and patient is the best predictor of a successful therapy. I work hard to understand how I can best help you. The more you put in, the more you get out. From time to time, I will use our therapeutic relationship as a tool towards positive growth.
I am certified in psychoanalytic and cognitive-behavioral therapy which allows me to tailor treatments for your specific treatment goals. During our consultation, you will get an opportunity to see what it might feel like to work together.
