Roman Petrocelli

(MA, LPC, ACS)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and an Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) from New Jersey with experience as a mental health and substance use counselor. I have collaborated with clients with concerns ranging from relationships like couples counseling, career challenges, excessive worriment and anxiety, substance use, and life transitions.

My counseling style is nurturing and collaborative. I treat those who are in need by giving respect and providing dignity to sensitive concerns. My approach integrates cognitive-behavioral interventions, as well as a strength-based approach. Each plan is individualized to meet one's or a couples current needs and goals.

I am inspired by the courage it takes to seek help. Change happens to all. Yet, we can lead more fullied lives when we have support during these periods of change and transition.

Be well and looking forward to collaborating with you.

He is a great person and is very optimistic and fun to work with.

I was feeling pretty distraught when I first signed up for BetterHelp. I was also nervous about talking to a counselor. After my first phone session, I felt hope. I feel my counselor listens to me, understands me and provides me with support and suggestions to get through difficult times. Just knowing there is someone there who will listen without judgement makes getting by easier.

Roman is an incredible therapist who really goes above and beyond to help with the situations that are going on. He also works to find unique ways to help put things into perspective. I am grateful that he is my therapist and is someone I would absolutely recommend to any of my close friends or family should that be needed

For context, I have been in therapy for about 4-5 years, during which time I’ve been through 5 therapists, with disappointing results. I learned it was normal to have bad matches with therapists, but it was too easy to blame myself for being a hopeless case.

That changed when I began speaking with Roman. He is a truly empathic therapist who listens extraordinarily well. He is great at helping you set relevant goals around your lifestyle. He guides you in such a way that allows you to actively make changes. The tools I’ve developed with Roman’s help are genuinely life-changing. My friends and family have also noticed my improvement. With Roman, I’ve come a long way and still going strong. Highly recommended.

Although we have only had a couple sessions, Roman has been helpful to me so far! I believe this will be a rewarding experience.

Written by M.E. on Apr 10, 2018 after counseling with Roman for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, and intimacy-related

I have been working with Roman for less than a month and I already feel improvements in my life. He is very responsive, communicative and provides advice based on needs that I have communicated. He is open to feedback which I really appreciate. It has been great working with him and I would strongly recommend him to others.

Roman is awesome! I just started my counseling with him, and I immediately was able to connect with him and be open and honest. If he hasn’t heard from me in a few days he reaches out to me which I love. My life can get busy, and it is nice to know someone reaches out when life takes over to help deal with my emotions. I am excited to continue this journey and see what it holds! Highly recommend Roman to everyone!
