Jennifer Pitman, LCSW
Montclair, NJ

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 15 years of experience in the field of mental health, having served clients across the lifespan with a wide variety of issues including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma histories and marriage and family relational issues.

After earning my Master’s in Social Work from Hunter College in 2008, I spent time in both medical and psychiatric clinics at Bellevue Hospital, working with children of all ages and their families, and specializing in work with adolescents. I have additional training in Child Parent Psychotherapy helping children under 6 who have experienced trauma and loss. This training also allows me to assist parents and parents-to-be in working through their own anxiety, trauma, and attachment histories to be the best parents they can be. I received some additional training in Family Therapy where I supported couples and families in improving their relationships. For the past 5 years, I have worked in a school setting where I provided individual, group, and family therapy to teenagers whose emotional struggles were impacting their ability to function in school.

As a therapist, I take a holistic approach when working with clients and tailor therapy to meet each individual’s needs. I have utilized a variety of styles including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral and attachment-based interventions. It is my belief that the therapeutic relationship can be a powerful resource for change and it is my duty to create an environment where my clients feel safe to self-reflect and feel supported through their transformation.
