Dynamic Counseling Services

Helping people gain the tools they need to live fuller lives.

Asking for help may be the hardest and most courageous thing any of us can do. Too many people feel like they are not measuring up — as parents, partners, workers, and friends. At DCS, our goal is to help clients identify the scripts that hold them back from reaching their full potential. Working with a qualified and caring therapist, clients are able to gain insight into how they got to this point in their lives, and more importantly, how they can get closer to the life they have always wanted. Our staff will work you to help you feel more connected to your life and loved ones so that you can live with as much ease, enjoyment and confidence as possible.

Whether you are looking for support for you, you and your partner, your family, or your child, our goal is to make sure you have the tools you need to make a positive, lasting change.

Our Therapists

Jennae Phillippe, LCSW

Founder, Dynamic Counseling Services

Jennae graduated from Columbia University School of Social Work (CSSW) in 2012, where she specialized in Family, Youth & Children’s Services. She has a post-graduate certificate in Clinical Practice with Adolescents from NYU Silver School of Social Work and was extensively trained in Structural Family Therapy in association with the Minuchin Center while working as a Family Treatment Rehabilitation preventive services social worker at Brooklyn Community Services. She has been working as a family, couples, and individual therapist in New York since 2016. She specializes in family therapy, depression and depressive disorders, and working with people from creative fields.

Jennae has a bachelor’s in English and has taught and practiced creative writing for over 20 years. She is interested in how people tell the stories of their lives and believes that if they can change how they tell their stories, they can change how they see their futures. Jennae is particularly interested in burnout prevention and has created multiple workshops on self-care and at various agencies.

Jennae utilizes a relational approach to therapy, using the language of relationships to describe the various dynamics that impact people, whether it’s their relationships to other people, or their relationship to work, to creativity, or to their bodies. In this way, she is able to help folks look at what sustains problematic dynamics and help them change the various relationships in their lives.

Abbi Klein, LCSW

Abbi graduated from New York University School of Social Work in 2012, and uses a relational and dynamic approach, combining traditional psycho-therapeutic training with more holistic practices (yoga, Eastern philosophy, Ayurveda, mindfulness) to work through not only mental and emotional aspects of each individual, but also with appreciation for the physical needs for self-care, stability, and space to create a fuller life.

Abbi comes to Dynamic Counseling Services combining her years of experience providing individual and group therapy, practicing and teaching yoga, and holding community workshops to improve their sense of overall well-being. Her goal is to create a supportive space to help people bring more peace, joy, and fulfillment into their lives.

Abbi works with individuals in the here-and-now, exploring aspects of how past adaptations live on in the present, interfering with current creative, spontaneous, and adaptive functioning. She works together with her clients to build a warm relationship that fosters collaboration, and works to find the balance between accepting what we had to do to adapt to past circumstances, and heightening our awareness of the fuller range of possibilities that are available in the present. Her emphasis in practice is toward greater integration of mind and body, with focus on the interplay between the cognitive, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of the self.

Her treatment philosophy is that when we meet in the present moment with fullness and openness — with genuine and unreserved acceptance — we create the ground from which healing can take place.
