Jody Kemmerer, LMSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I am here to help you develop a clearer and kinder relationship with yourself. I use simple, interactive approaches to assist you towards building your strengths and activating your wise mind. I bring to our work expertise in how to effectively manage anxiety, depression and other painful emotions. We work together to attain the change you desire. My 15 years experience as a practitioner of meditation, has given me a compassionate presence and a deep understanding of what often blocks us from accessing our talents and resilience. I am firm believer in everyone's innate capacity to heal.
I am intensively trained in the evidence-based treatment of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy through Behavioral Tech. I offer adherent DBT through a group practice. I am also trained in AEDP, an attachment-based therapy that focuses on emotion processing and transformational change. I enjoy working with adults, and adolescents.
My priority is to meet the individual needs of my clients. I offer flexible scheduling, pricing, and communication by phone coaching, email and text. Whenever possible I privilege creativity and fun. It is my honor to be a part of the healing process with you.

More about this group

Healthy Mothering

This group is geared toward expectant mothers and/or new mothers. This group is different than a typical 'new mom's group;" because its orientation is around the psycho-emotional challenges that come with the changes of becoming a mother. This group is an opportunity to share your thoughts and feeling around this life transition, body image, work stress, your relationship to your partner, sexuality, and anxiety around navigating your health and the health of your family so that you can love and enjoy mothering.
