About Me

Hello! My name is Jennifer Halper and I am a New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-R) with a private practice

located in Amherst, NY. I am also licensed in Colorado and see clients via Telehealth only. I am originally from Long Island, but

moved to the Buffalo area in July 2018. I have my Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Molloy College and Master's degree

in Social Work from New York University. In addition, I have a Post-Master's Certificate in Child and Family therapy from NYU

and am fully trained as an EMDR therapist.

My goal for therapy is to work towards helping my clients find the strength and resilience needed to get through what life brings to the table. I use multiple therapeutic approaches with each client and tailor therapy to each individual's needs. I take great pride in building a strong therapeutic relationship with the clients I see, as I believe that is the foundation of therapy. It can seem like a challenge to find a good therapist, but it is absolutely worth it to push forward until you find the best fit for you.


I have experience working with children, adolescents, young adults, adults, and families as a whole. I enjoy watching people grow throughout the therapeutic process, whether that entails mending strained relationships, decreasing negative thoughts or behaviors, increasing self-esteem, embarking on a new journey, or finding personal strength. My passion to help others is what motivates me daily.
