Jennifer Wolkin, Ph.D. (known more commonly as Dr. Jen) is a New York City-based licensed clinical neuropsychologist, writer, speaker, and mental health advocate.

She runs a private practice with an appreciation that our mind, body, brain, and spirit are intimately intertwined and impacted upon by one another.

She draws from such tools as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based techniques, the creative arts (including music), and biofeedback training.

She is currently pursuing her master’s in creative writing with a poetry focus.

Dr. Jen writes poetry inspired by the brain (she likes to call this neuropoetry!), drinks iced coffee all year long, plays guitar, and swoons from any note of a folk song. She loves writing for and being with her Instagram community.
