Hello! I'm Tracy. It looks like you've taken the first step in helping yourself work through whatever you have been dealing with. Engaging in therapy can be daunting, but you've made yourself a priority and should be commended for it. I'm here to help you learn coping strategies and mindfulness to assist in managing anxiety, depression, work stressors, and relationship issues and to offer guidance so you can be your best self. I see things holistically and believe our mental, physical, and spiritual health can influence one another. I hope we can work together and help you to grow and gain the peace of mind you're looking for.

I place a high value on authenticity, empathy, and self-awareness, both for myself and my clients as individuals, but also as a critical part of the therapeutic process (I also take advantage of the healing power of laughter whenever possible!). I aim to normalize and validate my clients’ experiences without judgment, and above all, to provide the most basic of human needs: to feel seen and heard. Hi! My name is Stephanie (Stephanie or Stevie is fine) and I have been providing therapy in NJ exclusively via telehealth for the last 3 years (prior to that, in person). If you have been struggling with symptoms of depression or anxiety, particularly if they are related to a traumatic experience, I would love the opportunity to work with you to reduce your mood- or anxiety-related symptoms, and to help you to experience a present that is not overshadowed or negatively impacted by situations and events from your past. I love working with women ages 20 to 30-something who are still in academia or just starting out in their careers, but also love working with women of any age. I frequently work with survivors of child sexual abuse, as well as those struggling with issues related to self-esteem/self-worth, but have treated clients with many different conditions, the most common of which are listed below. *My practice is focused primarily on treating adults who identify as female as well as being a welcoming space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I do not currently treat cisgender heterosexual males, children or adolescents. Visit my website for client feedback: www.of2mindstherapy.com

“Unconditional Positive Regard” - the idea of being accepted and supported, no matter what. Unconditionally. While it would be nice to always be surrounded by people who provide it, if you aren’t, you can find it in our space together. A firm believer in solution-focused, strengths-based, and action-oriented therapeutic approaches, Arika Adams, LCSW, has had over a decade of working with children and families who have experienced trauma, including significant work with adoptive families - particularly those adopting older children - and families struggling with addiction. Trained in EMDR, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, her goal is to help you feel empowered to make the decisions you feel will help you live your best life. At your first appointment, you’ll review items you want to work on, and set goals together to make a plan forward. The overarching goal is to help you feel supported and encouraged, never judged, for pursuing what is best for you.
