Hi there! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over 15 years in private practice and many years as a social worker in health care. I am also a lifelong fitness enthusiast, starting my life in competitive tennis at five years old. I am a California native who has spent six years enjoying the beautiful countryside and seasons of Connecticut. My focus in life is love. My passion not only includes health and wellness but also creativity. I have been writing poetry since high school and, I started painting again for pleasure and relaxation. My aspiration last year was to begin seriously working on compiling my poetry in preparation for a book. It is still in the making as I allow my process to flow without a due date. I am looking forward to a long life of love, health, and happiness! In Health, Heather

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 believe that everyone has the tools they need to implement the changes they want. As a therapist, it is my job to help you access these tools through, providing new broader perspectives and understanding how contexts and perspectives may be limiting you. I practice under the theory that relationships work in systemic ways, meaning when one aspect of a relationship is not functioning as it should another aspect will suffer. Through collaborative discussion I will challenge you to broaden your perspective in relationships, allowing you to access your internal tools to implement the necessary changes. Sometimes life is just funny, during our sessions we will laugh, cry and we may even disagree all in an effort to reach our goals and or elevate symptoms. If you are willing to do the work together we can help you create change.

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

It is my passion to support you as you heal from any experiences that you feel may be holding you back. Life tends to be difficult to navigate at times especially if a relationship has ended, a significant loss has occurred, or you are going through new life phases and transitions. I aim to journey with each one of my clients as he or she finds healing from challenging, traumatic, and stressful life experiences.

Hi there! I'm Gily and I am glad you found me. Are you a mama feeling the invisible load of motherhood? Are you finding it hard to connect with your family and children because of burnout? Are you losing your cool too easily these days? Or are you a new mama feeling overwhelmed with life with a new baby? As a mother myself, I can say I’ve been on the other side of the motherhood trenches (and still am from time to time) and there’s nothing more isolating than navigating parenthood with limited support. I help mothers in all stages of their motherhood helping to regain joy and control back into their lives. Parenting is not easy, and together we can identify ways to overcome specific challenges and stressors. With my client-centered and nurturing approach, I'll provide you with a safe place, free from shame and judgment, for you to share your feelings. Whether you have a strong-willed child, suffer from depression or anxiety, carry most of the child-rearing tasks, or simply need someone to talk to, I'm here for you. Together we can get you to be the mother you want to be.

I believe in the moving through stressful & traumatic experiences into one's life with new purpose. Telehealth Tips If you're used to seeing your mental health professional in their office, it may take some time to adjust to this new process. Take heart that our patients typically find video conferencing beneficial. Make a list of the main symptoms you want to address in the conversation. Also be sure to indicate when your symptoms started, what tends to exacerbate them, and what, if anything, seems to soothe them. Write down questions. Remember that mental health appointments are a two-way street. This is your chance to ask questions you have about your symptoms, brain scan, diagnosis, and treatment. Having a list of questions ready can help you remember to ask them. Have your medical and psychiatric history handy. Your therapist may ask questions about past medical or psychological issues in addition to inquiring about names and dosages of medications you have taken. Having this information available can save precious minutes during your appointment so you can spend more time talking about how you are going to get healthy. Minimize distractions and choose a quiet, comfortable spot One of the best strategies to ensure a meaningful appointment is to eliminate distractions. Close your door, turn off the notifications on your phone, and make sure someone is watching the kids so you can focus. Being able to hear clearly is another important element of an effective mental Tele-Health Zoom appointment. Try to minimize any background noise, such as the TV, the washing machine, or a barking dog. In addition, it's important that you feel comfortable in your setting during your appointment. Find a spot where you are relaxed and at ease. Troubleshoot technology beforehand. Find out what technology will be used and make sure you know how to use it prior to your appointment. Are you signed up for Zoom, Skype, or another video conferencing app? Do you know how it works? If you have never used the app before, do a practice call with a friend beforehand so you can work out the kinks. Set a reminder to keep appointment. Most of us can benefit from helpful reminders and alerts from our digital calendars. Setting your calendar to send you an alert 5-10 minutes prior to your virtual session can give you the time to gather your lists and questions and to prepare yourself mentally. Reminders can be especially critical if you have a tendency to be forgetful or inattentive. Unblock your phone. If you're doing a phone call, make sure your phone isn't set to block unknown callers and answer your phone at the designated time even if it shows that it's from an unknown caller.

“Unconditional Positive Regard” - the idea of being accepted and supported, no matter what. Unconditionally.

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.
