Licensed Clinical Social Worker

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have done individual, couple and family therapy with adults, children, teens, individuals, couples and families with depression, anxiety, marital issues, substance abuse, parenting, separation, divorce, grief and loss for over 20 years. I worked with terminally ill people and their families with hospice for 17 years and received specialized training in family therapy in graduate school, the Menninger Foundation and in Bowen Systems Theory. A positive relationship with a therapist is the key to feeling both safe and productive in psychotherapy. If you are wondering whether psychotherapy is for you or whether I would be a good fit for your particular needs, please call me. I would be happy to provide a free phone consultation to discuss your situation and how I might be of help.

Dr. Jessica Israel
Corporate Chair of Geriatrics for RWJBarnabas Health

Dr. Israel has been with RWJBarnabas Health since 2002 as a practicing geriatrician at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch where she established the first outpatient palliative care program in New Jersey and a nationally-recognized geriatric medicine program. She has served as both the Vice Chair and Interim Chair of the Department of Medicine at Monmouth Medical Center. In 2015, Dr. Israel became the Regional Director of Geriatrics and Palliative Care expanding her program to Monmouth Medical Center’s Southern Campus where she developed and serves as the Director of The James and Sharon Maida Geriatrics Institute. The Maida Institute is a landmark program in geriatrics incorporating both inpatient and outpatient care in the same location and providing evidence-based best practices through on site physical and occupational therapy, audiology, specialized nursing, pharmacy, social work and education. The Maida Institute is also home to the Better Health senior membership program focused on bringing both educational and social programming to more than 1800 Ocean County residents. As Corporate Chair of Geriatrics, Dr. Israel will take what she has cultivated at the James and Sharon Maida Geriatrics Institute and use it as a model program for enhancing geriatric services and senior care across the system.
