Let go of the burdens of the past. Reclaim the possibilities of the present.
Jenny Willams, LCSW

I'm glad you're here.

I'm Jenny, a licensed psychotherapist specializing in mindful living, creativity, and trauma recovery. In addition to psychotherapy I offer Brainspotting and EMDR, cutting edge brain-body approaches to healing and wellness.

Serving clients in Manhattan and the Hudson Valley, I provide therapy to a diverse range of people from all walks of life and experience. What my clients tend to have in common is creativity, curiosity, and a desire to show up for themselves in bigger, bolder ways. I particularly enjoy helping actors, artists, and creatives transform painful past experiences in order to fulfill their creative dreams in life, business, and art.


My practice

Do you seem to have it all together, but don't always feel that way?  Are you frustrated by certain habitual patterns or blocks that you seem to have no control over? Do you long to feel more alive and vibrant?

My therapeutic approach focuses on clearing unresolved painful past experiences that affect your confidence, creativity, and connection with others in the here and now. Overwhelming, and sometimes traumatic experiences often underlie anxiety, stress, depression, PTSD, phobias, negative beliefs, low self-esteem, fears, creative and performance blocks, compulsive behaviors, relationship pain, and many other difficulties that bring otherwise high-performing people into therapy. 

Healing unresolved hurts from the past can greatly improve your well-being and quality of life in the present. Such resolution naturally leads to a greater sense of freedom, vibrancy, and empowerment. I have been privileged to witness many of my clients move from feeling stuck or struggling in "survival mode" to thriving in their lives and careers - whether that involves shedding old ways of being in the world, shifting to new paradigms of living, creating, and working, or switching to an entirely new path.

I particularly enjoy helping actors, artists and creatives to clear creative blocks, harness their emotional history to enhance their creative work, and delve deeper into their talent. I believe in human possibility in change and healing, and look forward to supporting you in living to your fullest potential.

 

You’re in the right place if...

you’re seeking something a little outside the box. My holistic approach to healing and wellness combines talk therapy with innovative brain and body based therapies to help clients live their best lives. I specialize in cutting edge psychotherapy modalities for the rapid resolution of traumatic or painful past events that were once perceived as overwhelming or immobilizing. I often integrate EMDR, Brainspotting, and Mindfulness into traditional therapies, as well as conduct sessions that focus only on these approaches.

When life gets complicated

It is particularly common for past traumas and stressor-related conditions like anxiety or depression to resurface during challenging situations and periods of transition. Whether you’re struggling to navigate a major life change like a break up, career change, relocation, or new baby, are having trouble managing the common but demanding problems of the day-to-day, or find yourself faced with extraordinary difficulties such as loss, addiction or a more recent traumatic event, psychotherapy can be a powerful tool to transform your quality of life and relationships.

Feeling stressed, stuck, or creatively blocked?

Maybe your brain needs a tune-up.

Healing happens when we allow the wisdom of the body to bring itself back into alignment. Depending on your needs, we may choose to incorporate a blend of mindfulness, and somatically-based modalities into our process. I'm a certified Brainspotting clinician and practitioner of EMDR - brain-body approaches to healing and wellness. Simple and elegant modalities that work with the self-healing aspects of our biology, these therapies heal trauma on a neurobiological level, restoring balance to the nervous system and impacting neural patterning so that real change can happen. 

Because the body, mind, and emotions are integrated, body-oriented approaches to healing painful past experiences often yield quicker, more powerful results than talk therapy alone. With this work, many of my clients start to notice an organic shift from feeling stuck or in "survival mode" to a state of emotional health and creative vitality, which allows them to feel more alive, connect with meaning and purpose, and achieve personal, professional and artistic goals with more ease.
