Jenny Harris, MSW

Who am I?

Hi! I’m Jenny Harris. I am a resident supervisee with plans of becoming a licensed  clinical social worker (LCSW). I graduated with my Masters of Social Work from VCU in  the Spring of 2020. Since graduating, I have worked for a Hospice agency where I was  able to help terminal individuals and their families cope with a variety of emotions  brought on by illness and grief. In my free time I am likely spending time with friends, family, or my giant goldendoodle puppy, Whiskey.

I love working with:

I enjoy working with adults of all ages who struggle with common stressors, challenges, and transitions of life. I am passionate and experienced in helping those struggling with grief from the loss of a loved one. Helping those with anxiety, depression, trauma,  anger, and difficult life changes is also a passion of mine.

Some of my favorite approaches include:

I utilize a strengths-based approach to empower individuals to make beneficial changes in their lives. A cognitive behavioral approach is one that I find most helpful in  challenging negative thinking patterns to create positive change. However, every  individual is unique, and I value working with my client to establish which approach is  most helpful for them. Together, I believe my client and I can form a plan for processing complex emotions and developing coping skills to help navigate the stressors of life.
