Hello and thank you for finding me. I am so glad that you have made the decision to do something positive for yourself. My name is Dina and I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey with over 15 years of experience. I have been fortunate enough to have had a varied clinical career involving working with clients of all ages. I have worked in hospitals and hospice, private practice, and in public schools. I work with anyone who has been affected by depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, ADHD, parenting issues, or grief.
The world is a confusing place right now. Figuring out how to navigate life and all of its challenges is not easy and often we need the help of someone who we are not emotionally invested in. This is where therapy comes in. If this is your first time seeking therapy you are probably feeling nervous, anxious, worried, and relieved. All of these feelings (and more) are normal. If you have had therapy in the past I hope you are here because you found it helpful.
Therapy is not easy, but I think of us as a team and I am your coach. I will be here to guide you and support you. To cheer you on and teach you, but you have to do the work. As long as you are willing to try I will be here for you and I will work as hard as you do to show you there are better days ahead. My counseling style is warm and supportive but honest and realistic. I tell my clients what they need to hear, not what they want to hear. I treat all of my clients with respect and compassion and I accept people for who they are and do not try to change them. I look forward to working with you.

I love working with Dina so far. She is a very supportive and honest therapist. She always makes sure that I feel comfortable during our sessions and has very helpful and realistic advice for my lifestyle. I would highly recommend to a friend or family member. She is truly an amazing person.
I have only had one call with her but she has been the absolute best. I feel so comfortable talking with her and she really makes me feel like I am heard, respected and taking care of.
I had only 3 sessions with Dina and I must say, we have been getting down to root of my anxiety and it has really opened my eyes! I have been through therapy for years but never have dived this deep. Dina is exceptional and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
