Who is Jennifer Convissor?

Jennifer Convissor is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), who earned her bachelor’s degree (BA) from Sarah Lawrence College with concentration in individual and cultural psychology, as well as creative arts.  She earned her Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from Fordham University, gaining extensive experience in group-work with every age group from school-aged children to senior citizens.  Her professional background includes community organizing; individual, couples and family counseling; play therapy; psychosocial assessment; community referrals and crisis intervention.  She has practiced in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan and Westchester.  Jennifer sees private clients in White Plains and Tarrytown, as well as serving the Rivertowns as the Partners in Caring social worker based at the Shames JCC on the Hudson.

 

What can Jennifer offer me and my family?

Thanks to a generous grant from UJA Federation of New York, the Partners in Caring (PIC) program provides free mental health services to the Shames JCC and the synagogues and congregations of the Rivertowns.

Please contact Jennifer if you are interested in receiving counseling or support services for yourself or your family.  With enough interest, Jennifer is also available to develop tailored therapeutic groups, including psycho-educational, wellness related, or specific lifestyle support.

If Jennifer cannot directly meet your needs, she will happily make appropriate referrals.
