Jenna Blewis

Jenna Blewis joined Columbia Health in 2018. Prior to Columbia, Jenna trained at three other university counseling centers in the tristate area. Most recently, she completed her pre-doctoral internship at the Pace University Counseling Center in NYC. Jenna has also worked with adults and older adults in hospital and community mental health settings.

Jenna believes in C.S. Lewis’ famous quote: “You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.” With that goal in mind, Jenna offers her students a safe and collaborative space through which they can better understand their experiences, create more meaningful connections, cope with difficult feelings and situations, and change patterns in which they feel stuck.

Jenna is primarily a psychodynamic or insight-oriented therapist with specialty interests in working with performing artists and treating complex trauma and dissociation. Her other professional interests include anxiety and depression, relationship concerns, self-esteem and identity issues, separation and loss, and other attachment and emotional concerns.
