Jennifer Golden, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Carmel
Everyone experiences challenges and pain in life, yet when they happen to you it's an experience that is uniquely yours. It takes courage to face uncomfortable feelings and to cultivate an open heart. To recognize you need support and seek treatment is good coping. I work with a wide variety of clients experiencing grief and loss; traumas; transitions; sad mood, guilt, hopelessness; excessive worry; overwhelm; irritability or anger; relationship strain/conflict; identity issues; work/school stress; sleep problems; and/or parenting challenges. I'm trained in pregnancy/postpartum adjustments through Postpartum Support International.
My passion is to help people through what feels like a vulnerable time and turn it into a transformative one. Together we will figure out a plan that you will feel good about, and that can move your life forward.
Psychotherapy provides skills and tools for lifelong healing, whether or not your physician recommends medication. I bring over 20 years in the mental health field, including 15+ years as a parent educator, providing postpartum support to hundreds of new parents. I warmly welcome your call.
