Hello! Welcome to BetterHelp. I am so glad that you are here. My name is Shoshanna Root. I am a Licensed Clinical Therapist in the state of New Jersey. It is not easy to reach out for help and then try to find the right match in a therapist. You have made a great first step!

I have worked as a social worker for over 11 years. I completed my master’s degree from The University Of Michigan and my undergraduate degree from Temple University. I have done extensive work with families, couples, and young adults. Much of my experience is with grief therapy, supporting those who are experiencing transitions in their lives (a common occurrence in many of our lives), caregiver support, anxiety, depression, chronic illnesses, and trauma. I am certified as a trauma informed therapist. I am a strengths-based counselor. I believe that every one of us has the ability to grow and change. Often, we all need help realizing our true potential. I believe therapy is a partnership. I want to work on goals together that you want to achieve. Additionally, I have a certificate in Alternative and Integrative Medicine. I am able to incorporate mindfulness and meditations into our sessions. I believe that you should leave a therapy session feeling supported but challenged. I am also trained in cognitive behavioral therapy and christian counseling. I am a member of the American Academy of Christian Counselors. We all have stories and beliefs that we have about ourselves, often challenging and confronting our stories leads to positive change.

I check my emails twice daily.I am confident we can find a time to work together. Thank you for reading my profile and I would love the opportunity to work with you!

Shoshanna was such a help for me during a transitional period in life.
I am so grateful for the time she spent with me, helping me grow my confidence in understanding "self" and finding a new way to work through my emotions.
Thank you again Shoshanna.
God bless :)

I've only had two sessions so far, but I'm happy with Shoshanna so far. My sessions have been pretty insightful, and I'm hoping this trend continues. I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing such services.

Shoshanna is so nice and encouraging! She really listens to you and helps guide you through your thoughts, and she validates your feelings without reading too much into them. I feel so much better after working with her for the past few months, and I’m better able to manage my anxiety and depression. I highly recommend her!

She's so very helpful! She gives me tasks to do in between sessions that make me work on my mental health outside of phone sessions. She pushes me to work on the issues at hand and really glad I reached out for help.

Written by A.A. on Aug 02, 2020 after therapy with Shoshanna for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Shoshanna has listened to me rant and rave about every little aspect of my life but never fails to offer a genuinely caring response to all of it. I've never tried any form of therapy prior to Better Help, and with Shoshanna as my first counselor ever, I already am starting to feel like a much more positive, forward-thinking version of myself! Thank you so much Shoshanna!
