BA, Montclair State University // MSW, Fordham University
Jennifer Pimentel’s foundation in mental health counseling began during her undergraduate studies at Montclair State University, after which she earned her MSW from Fordham University. Over the past six years, Jennifer has cultivated her skills and knowledge by providing counseling and social services to children, adolescents, and their families within schools, group homes, in-home services, and more recently, as a Medical Social worker in a hospital. These various settings have afforded her the opportunity to learn all aspects of providing quality clinical support and social services. Jennifer also has five years of experience providing administrative support in the field of psychiatry. With these wide-ranging clinical and medical administrative experiences, she understands the importance of providing well-rounded care, quality service and operational excellence for the clients she serves.
Jennifer is a fierce advocate for helping people obtain access to quality mental health care regardless of social or economic status.
I know how devastating it can be to have a family member struggle with mental health challenges; as a young college student, I had to advocate and find quality treatment for my sibling. This experience and my own bouts with anxiety and depression make me passionate about helping others obtain the education and treatment they need to move forward with their lives.
