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!

I like her a lot. Does a good job. But someone older if there is a text time.
Just getting started but Shoshanna made me feel comfortable on our first session.
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 appreciate the friendly professional that Shoshanna is. I appreciate her observations and encouragement.
I've had a number of counselors shoshanna is the only one I've actually felt comfortable enough with for it to work the way it's supposed to!
Shoshanna has helped me so much this year, I really don’t know where I would be without her
I am still extremely pleased with my counselor. I am very excited to continue to work with her.
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.
Thank you for everything!
Shoshanna is kind, patient, and understanding. A great person to talk to.
Shoshanna Is an incredible therapist. She is very open and I never feel judged when speaking to her. She has a variety of techniques that she uses as well as is very compassionate. I have always looked forward to my sessions with her and appreciate the support she gives me.
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!
Early days...so far she is very helpful and understanding
Really helped in my concerns
Shoshanna has really helped me even in the short time i have been working with her , she’s helped me through a lot of my life changes and supported me when I needed it. Would recommend her to anyone!
I am thankful for Shoshanna's kind and compassionate counseling- I feel safe to open up to her and trust in her advice. She responds to all of my journal entrees and messages me with just the right reflection, worksheets, and questions. I highly recommend her!
I’ve only had one session but Shoshanna has really been messaging me, providing me with ideas and things to work on, and has made me think that signing up for therapy was the right thing to do.
Shoshanna is awesome! She has met me where I am and is showing me some of the possible ways forward. She is able to call me out on my nonsense in a very empathetic and kind way. She has truly energized this process!
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.
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!
I was very broken and shattered all over the place when i first contacted Shoshanna. She calmly handled the situation , talked to me provide me with resources incase of emergency. Followed up withy progress and gave exercises to channel my anxiety. A very practical and affective approach to solving problems.
Thanks for the help ⭐
