Welcome to my practice. I provide counseling for ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression and Post Traumatic Stress. I enjoy helping children, families and adults rebuild, mend and maintain the bridges broken by mental health challenges. As a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey, originally from New York, my brief intensive therapy immediately improves a sense of cohesiveness and decreases feelings of estrangement. A bulk of my experience arose from the families I served referred by state and local child care agencies. My years of experience and exposure to diverse populations has enable me to be knowledgeable on many topics and resources.

Hello! Thanks for reviewing the information for my online practice, "Coleman Counseling". My name is Mrs. Michelle Coleman. I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have worked in the field for over 20 years. I specialize in mood disorders, adjustment disorders, & addressing life stressors. Counseling is a collaborative effort between the counselor and the client and is action oriented. Previous counseling experiences have allowed me to work with individuals from a variety of backgrounds, with a host of presenting concerns. I am dedicated to working collaboratively with individuals to help them bring about positive changes in their lives. I use solution-focused and cognitive behavioral techniques to assist with concerns. Solution-focused techniques work well for individuals who present to reduce or relieve their symptoms. Cognitive therapy works best for individuals who have issues related to negative and unsuccessful patterns of behavior and make plans to change those patterns. My goal is to assist individuals with applying these strategies to their current goals and plan of action for change.
