Jennifer Hoffman, MSW, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in West Hartford
Many of us face pressures of balancing work, relationships, family, aging parents, children and financial stress among others. With support from someone who can help you feel empowered, teach you coping skills and provide direct but caring feedback; you can achieve the firm footing on the path to peace and personal acceptance. With 16 years experience as an elementary school social worker and 12 years in private practice, I offer a unique and helpful perspective when working with children as well as adults. I'm passionate about helping others achieve their goals. It's time to realize your potential.
I use humor and empathy along with a mixture of mindfulness, coaching techniques, cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive therapy and EMDR to help my clients remove the barriers of thought that keep them from experiencing their fullest relationship to themselves, their spirituality, their careers, and their loved ones.
