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

Hi there! I'm Abbey. Do you feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Maybe it feels like everything falls on you, or you need to have everything figured out. Or maybe you have no idea what you want, but you just know something is missing. That pressure alone can feel debilitating. If you're overwhelmed with responsibility, at a crossroads in your life, or you feel ready for a change (even if you don't know what that is), then I'm here to tell you that you're exactly where you're supposed to be. I’m passionate about helping women and highly sensitive individuals overcome anxiety to show up as their most confident and authentic selves. Whether you're struggling with relationship challenges, low self-worth, or processing trauma, I'm committed to supporting my clients on their journey to health, healing and happiness. My goal as a therapist is to make my clients feel seen, heard and understood so they can connect more deeply to their truth, find peace, and create the life they want.

Do you often see patterns in your life that you would like to change ,yet still repeat them? Counseling sessions will provide the support and guidance to understand and release emotions that keep you stuck. Relationships are key, whether it be your relationship with yourself, your partner, family member or friends, you will be able to develop self awareness and understanding of the influence of family culture and dynamics. Over 30 years as a therapist, I have worked in a variety of settings , with a wide spectrum of ages and cultures . This experience has deepened my respect for each individual's journey and the influence of their family beliefs. I help clients to acknowledge these beliefs and gradually transform and expand them to enhance rather than limit their lives. I have enjoyed working with children and adolescents and bring this experience with me , yet I am currently working primarily with adults which includes a special enjoyment to help couples to successfully transform limiting patterns and develop clear communication and listening skills. I have learned so much about life transitions through my work with trauma, hospice, death and dying, treatment foster care, eating disorders and liaison work with educational and community. These experience have strengthen my belief in human resiliency. All of the sessions are remote and I provide a phone call prior to beginning sessions where you will be able to ask questions to see if we are a good "fit" to work together.

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.

Hello, my name is Kelley Machado, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Connecticut. You may wonder what does Licensed Clinical Social Worker mean, what does that allow me to do? As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I have the unique opportunity to help people work through various points in their lives. In the years I have been a social worker I have worked with various populations of people from many socioeconomic, cultural, and racial backgrounds as well as people with various presenting concerns. I began my career working in the mental health system, then the criminal justice system, then onto medical social work including various medical issues as well as aging and end of life concerns. I believe people can experience difficulties with coping whenever faced with a transition in life. These changes can include monumental transitions that are both good or bad, like a new job, new family members, loss, separations, disappointments, traumatic events, etc. These types of experiences can cause psychosocial distress which can have far-reaching impacts on many aspects of our lives. I work with my clients who include children, adults, couples, and families to find healthy coping methods in order to gain a healthier perception of themselves which can help to strengthen their relationships with themselves and others so they can find themselves as comfortable, secure, and whole. I take time to get to know each of my clients on an individual basis so that I can tailor approaches to care because I have learned that not one approach impacts and helps all clients. I have been trained and adopted many approaches to provide therapeutic support including cognitive-behavioral, attachment theory, developmental theory, trauma theory, and dialectical behavioral theory. Change is not easy and embarking on change takes a tremendous amount of courage and actions. I congratulate you on your wish, strength, and wisdom for seeking help and taking this first step towards making a change in your life. If you are prepared to move beyond wishes and intentions to action and fulfillment- I am here to empower and support you to achieve your goals. I would love to help you reach your goals, whatever that may be in life so you can move forward

“Together, we will work on strategies that address the root cause of difficulties. We have what we need inside us. Let’s use curiosity and compassion to ask the hard questions. Those answers are the gateway to resolution. Call me and let’s talk.” I believe there are no broken people. Decisions made during difficult, emotional times are influenced by unsettled parts. Through talk therapy, we can address past hurts in a safe and supportive therapeutic space free of judgment. Doing so will begin the healing process. The focus is to empower your quiet voice within to share your truth with first yourself and then others. The goal is to end historic pain by creating a more pleasant present, which allows you to live your best life.

Hi I am a LCMHC I have a holistic approach to helping clients work thru their grief and loss . It can be a loss of a love one thru gun violence.or sudden death like a heart attack or some other health issue .Loss of a relationship ,a divorce or a devastating medical diagnosis or a change of health can and does bring a lot of grief . Even being on an eating plan that changes our weight and brings up many feeling and emotions as we struggle to be successful. I have worked with those going thru the aging process which often means they cannot complete tasks and do things that they used to do resulting in a sense of loss But I have seen in my practice clients find a sense of purpose emerge as they experience moment to moment the myriad of feelings , sensations that are often associated with grief . Going thru a loss can be a very difficult time in one’s life and we often have a need to see a professional to help us navigate the rough terrain of grief . I have also seen it be thru grief and loss one finds their purpose. There is hope . . .

I believe that one’s healing and growth begins with focusing on the self as priority in order to live mindfully and with intention. When one begins to heal themselves and live intentionally, he or she begins to function better in all areas of his or her life. I use various clinical modalities such as: Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing to help individuals build a toolbox and begin to feel more confident in balancing life’s obstacles. I focus on helping individuals become aware of, and recognize negative thinking patterns in order to reframe them.
