Jennifer Battaglino, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Certified Tinnitus Specialist
I currently specialize in Tinnitus (ringing of the ears), Chronic Illness, Depression, Anxiety, Fears, and Phobias. Chronic illnesses include; Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFIDS), Fibromyalgia, and Environmental Illness. I also speak at schools, conferences, conventions, and seminars throughout the year on the aforementioned issues.
With over 10 years experience, I have to come to believe that the most effective way to help you to achieve your goal(s) is to use a blend of traditional psychotherapies and focusing techniques. I utilize regression therapy, Ego State or PARTS therapy, cognitive behavioral intervention, and an overall client-centered approach.
My goal is to help you find the emotional causes of current issues of concern. Once we find those problems together, then we desensitize those issues, gain insight, and help make positive cognitive changes.
My qualifications include my masters degree in clinical social work from Fordham University as well as my status as a New York State licensed psychotherapist. I received my first certification in hypnotherapy from the Wellness Institute, Washington. I then pursued advanced certification as a clinical hypnotherapist from the Minnesota Institute of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy where I studied individually with Dr. Kevin Hogan, author and expert in working with chronic illness, with an emphasis on tinnitus, receiving certification as a tinnitus specialist. I utilize Dr. Hogan’s model of CARPeTS therapy to help my clients find relief.
My hope is that The Harwood Group will continue to grow as an effective resource where people suffering from chronic illness, fears, anxiety, stress, fears, and phobias can come to get well.
“Jennifer’s workshop was interesting, informative, and entertaining. She explained how to deal with clients with chronic illness in an easy to understand, step-by-step format. She is warm, friendly, and easy to talk to. Her knowledge in the area of treating clients with chronic illness is phenomenal.”
