Jenna Malvin, MSW


Hi there! Welcome to my page. My name is Jenna Malvin and I am a LMSW-CC. I am open to seeing children and adults. I have a background working with survivors of domestic and sexual violence as well as human trafficking. I also have experience working with groups and children. My interventions are informed by the Humanistic Theory, Object Relations, and Cognitive and Behavioral Theories.

My Brand

I love spending time outside and would love to bring both the physical and symbolic aspects of nature into my brand as a social worker. I want to be known as someone who brings the grounding and peaceful aspects of the forest into my therapy style. I want to give the impression that everyone who steps foot into my office is exactly where they are supposed to be and has a purpose and work to do. Nothing in nature stays the same all year, it has cycles and deaths and rebirths. Humans are a part of nature and therefore are always transforming and transitioning. I would like to bring that energy into my therapeutic style by honoring this state of transformation. I would also physically like to bring nature into my work as well as my work into nature. I would love to have a small herb garden in my office to give clients something to feel between their fingers and smell during grounding exercises. I would love to have clients garden as an activity that uses their hands and bodies as well as instilling a sense of accomplishment and mastery. Gardening would also positively impact their communities and provide symbolic lessons on reaping what you sow and planting seeds of positivity and growth. I would also love to facilitate nature walks for therapy sessions. I think walking is a form of bilateral movement that can make talking about and processing difficult things easier. I would ultimately love to facilitate some kind of wilderness retreat later on in my career.
