Meet Jennifer Abcug, LCSW: Life Transitions NYC Learn About Her Life, Experience, and Wisdom
Being true to oneself is not a simple task and often comingles with feelings of insecurity and uncertainty. Conditioning of women to "follow the right path" begins when we are young and impressionable. It can continue until we are very old or until we recognize that our life feels "wrong".

I specialize in counseling women through life transitions and the complexities of discovering fulfillment when making life choices. In her poem "The Summer Day" Mary Oliver asked, "What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" This question is a focal component of my work with clients. A frequent issue I have seen in my practice, in my own life and the lives of women close to me, is a struggle to discern between "wants" and "shoulds". By separating personal desire (wants) from external expectation (shoulds) it is my hope that clients learn to live more authentically.

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am, in no particular order, a mom, divorcee, partner, daughter, bereaved sibling, runner, reader, writer and seeker of authenticity.
