New Jersey is the Garden State. In a way, your life is a garden. You can plant whatever you want and watch everything grow. Sometimes, your garden grows in the way you want to, and other times, it doesn’t grow at all or feels out of control. 

A counselor can grow your garden and shape it into something to behold. You just need to speak to a therapist

Most of us don’t seek help until the pain is too great and we come to a point where we admit that we need help; that we just can’t do this on our own. It can often feel defeating because we have been taught that we ‘should’ be able to handle anything if we put our minds to it. The reality is it takes a great deal of courage to ask for and accept help. I applaud you in taking this step. It is a true privilege for me to try to support others with their challenges; to be given their trust and their confidence. I work to do this using evidence-based practices within a...
