Jennifer Bakalar, Ph.D.


Licensed Psychologist

Welcome! Seeking therapy can be both an empowering and a daunting decision. As you navigate the process, finding a strong fit with a therapist is essential. I look forward to speaking with you about how we may work together to promote relief from emotional distress, deepen your relationships, and enhance your overall well-being.
