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 one today.

I know the kind of courage it takes to recognize being stuck and then to realize a shift is necessary. Not knowing what direction to head in is really hard and can be very scary. It's sad to realize that you are on a journey and maybe you're on this journey alone. The other important people in your life just don't see things the way you do and you can't find common ground. It's frightening to take that leap and wonder if you're going to be caught. It's painful to realize you've outgrown who you are and painful to grow into who you are becoming. It may feel li...

You may not have come to this decision without a great deal of soul-searching. Wondering if asking for help made you seem like a failure. What if instead you saw asking for help as an act of bravery? After all, it is one thing to talk to a friend or family member and get advice and entirely another to receive professional assistance without bias or judgment. Having friends and family are a vital part of our social lifeblood however when there is something troubling you, something you can’t see clearly, your friends and family’s love for you can sometimes get i...

I have two decades of experience in the field of psychiatric social work and special education. I believe that as individuals our mental health symptoms are often an attempt to communicate our past experiences and traumas. Most negative responses to symptoms come from a maladaptive life pattern to these stressors. Psychotherapy allows an individual to openly express themselves without judgment, so that they can learn to understand themselves, these stressors and respond to them with positive and sustainable life behaviors.
