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. She 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 worked as a family, couples, and individual therapist since 2013.

She offers individual therapy and couples counseling and has experience working with folks in non-monogamous/polyamorous relationships. She also works with LGBTQ folks and folks exploring their orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. She is a longtime advocate of body acceptance as an essential tool for managing mental health. She is also sex-positive and social-justice oriented and specializes in helping people in creative communities.

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 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 with other people or their relationship to work, creativity, or their bodies. In this way, she can help folks look at what sustains problematic dynamics and help them change the various relationships in their lives.
