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

Do you struggle with feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Do you struggle with finding personal and work-life balance? Do you find it hard to cope with current life stressors and situations? Do you struggle with the pain of your past life experiences presenting itself in your day to day? Can you imagine a place where you are free to be yourself, a place where you can share your thoughts and feelings and be open without the fear of judgment? Being seen, heard and understood is important and necessary to taking the steps on the journey to a healthier you. Hello, I am Felicia and as a therapist, I endeavor to create a space to allow self-awareness, true healing and personal growth to happen. We all have different life experiences and sometimes figuring out how to deal and cope with those experiences is challenging and requires a little help. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, grief, chronic stress, trauma, struggling with relationships or a life transition, change is possible. Through our work together I want to help you meet your goals as you take this journey to feel better. I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome hurdles in your life. I view therapy as a safe space for processing life experiences, emotions, thoughts, and trauma to achieve one’s goals and necessary growth. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate with you to understand your thought processes, address barriers to wellness, and identify ways in which you can achieve your goals. I believe that clients are the experts of their own lives; however, sometimes need an outside perspective to help re-frame our thinking. Asking for help isn't easy and you are not alone! We all need support at times and I would be honored to be that support for you! Thanks again for taking the first step on this journey to a healthier you.

Whether there has been a significant loss, a life transition, relational conflict, or daily stressors, we all need support during difficult times. Sometimes, however, a trained professional can help navigate these challenges and assist in facilitating positive change. We aren’t always able to recognize the underlying cause of our discomfort or find ways to overcome life’s challenges. In a therapeutic setting, we will work together to discover healthier ways for you to deal with life’s struggles, make desired changes, improve relationships, and find inner healing. Seeking therapy can be viewed as an investment in yourself. Improving mental and emotional health is as important as one’s physical health. My role is to provide a safe space and come alongside you on your journey. I work with adolescents and adults and provide individual, couples, and family counseling services. I treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, (PTSD), relationship issues, parenting, behavioral concerns, and many other problems affecting how we feel and operate in the world.
