About me

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of New Jersey with decades of experience , I understand that taking the first step to reach out for help and outside support oftentimes can be hard. In fact, doing so is a sign of strength.
Are you feeling stressed, overwhelmed at home or work; do you have strained relationships with others , unresolved issues from your past, or not feeling good about yourself? Whatever challenges you are currently facing or obstacles getting in the way of your inner peace and happiness, it is important for you to find a safe place where you feel respected, valued and affirmed. I utilize a strength based, reality and client centered approach in working with individuals, couples and families. Here, you will be listened to with empathy and compassion. The bottom line is you are not alone. We will work together to navigate your journey toward a better, brighter and more fulfilling tomorrow.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Doreen Guddemi. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Doreen has been nothing but the best since she has been working with me. There were days in past therapy sessions when my therapist could not get anything out of me and sessions would end in 5 minutes. Doreen I always feel like there isn’t enough time in a session and it’s really helping me.

Before coming to Betterhelp I had some negative experiences and was hesitent to try again with online therapy. Luckily, I was persuaded by a family member to give it another try with Doawhilet Betterhelp. From the very start, I felt comfortable and at ease with Doreen as if I had known her for awhile . What she said, what she didn't say, how she said it, when she said it, created a professional yet personal environment that made me feel safe and relaxed allowing me to easily put my trust in her. A level of trust shared between therapist and patient that enabled me to share my deepest thoughts and feelings needed to work towards a better, healthier and happy me. I am a work in progress, progress that Dorren helped me to make possible, when I didn't think I could. Team Dorreen and Me with all the possibilities.

Doreen has been a great therapist for what I was going through. Thanks to my hard work from her guidance I have been truly a better person to myself and those I care for. Doreen has always responded in a timely and professional manner.

I’ve been speaking with Doreen for over a year now and her actionable advice and thoughtful insights have been life-changing. Words cannot express how grateful I am for her support!

Doreen was not only understanding and helpful, but she was sincere. It is so difficult to find a therapist who genuinely cares and actively listens to what you want to discuss. Right from the beginning, Doreen made it clear that although we set goals in the beginning of the program, it was my choice on what we discussed and how the sessions went. If I was unavailable or needed to reschedule, she was more than accommodating. She was insightful and overall kind. I've learned things about myself that I've never known before and I've been in therapy for most of my life. She is truly amazing.
