Embedded Clinician, Residence Hall Embedded Clinicians/Residence Hall Counselors

Jay received his Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Rutgers University, his Master’s in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh, and is now a Licensed Social Worker (LSW). He enjoys working collaboratively with students in both individual and group therapy settings to address many areas of concern, including anxiety, depression, grief, interpersonal relationships, and existential issues around meaning and purpose. Jay utilizes an integrative approach to psychotherapy tailored to the needs and goals of each client that is influenced by many different therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and short-term, solution focused approaches. Jay finds work with college students to be rewarding because of the unique and important issues that come up as students leave home and enter adulthood, and because college students are inquisitive, insightful, and dedicated clients.
