My name is Dr. Nicole Livingston, and I am a New Jersey-based clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of experience assisting clients of all ages. I have been privileged to work with individuals struggling with a wide range of challenges including Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, OCD, ADHD, Developmental Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Aging and End-of-life issues, Schizoaffective/Psychotic Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Parenting Difficulties, and Relationship Concerns. I am especially honored to have helped first responders, and others experiencing the harmful effects of physical and emotional trauma following 9/11 and other natural disasters.
As a person-centered therapist, I treat my clients with empathy, respect, dignity, and compassion. My approach is to not pass judgment, but rather assist you to achieve the goals you have set for yourself. My theoretical orientation is based primarily on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy approaches (CBT) and also includes humanistic, mindfulness-based, and solution-oriented approaches depending on your unique challenges, preferences, and situation.
Whether this is your first time seeking therapy or not, it takes courage to take this step. I hope to provide you with a safe and productive environment to collaboratively address your needs. I look forward to working with you!
