Jennifer Bearden, LCSW


About Me

I am a native San Diegan providing teletherapy for clients in both California and New York with plans to open an in-person practice in the future. I have worked in emergency, inpatient and outpatient settings and enjoy the balance of both hospital-based and private practice work. My experience in both medical and mental health fields has emphasized the intimate connection between the mind, body and emotional centers of each individual. I tailor evidence-based therapeutic approaches that value all the wisdom they have to offer. When not in practice, I enjoy all the great outdoors that San Diego has to offer. I love to travel to both new and familiar places and savor opportunities to learn or experience something new - I'm forever thankful that there's an endless supply at hand.

Education & Experience

I graduated from San Diego State University with a Masters in Social Work in 2000. I've worked in emergency, inpatient and outpatient medical and mental health settings for 20+ years in both CA and NY.

Professional & Volunteer Affiliations

I am licensed in California and New York and accept clients in both states; EMDRIA membership
