For some, psychotherapy is the appropriate vehicle for change as it provides an opportunity to increase awareness and self-reflection and to develop tools to implement desired change.

The decision to seek psychotherapy can be a difficult one. Although we may feel “stuck” and unhappy in our present situation, we believe we should be able to struggle through difficulties on our own because we view reaching out for help as a weakness. In my practice, I work initially to dispel that notion in an atmosphere of compassion and respect by forming a collaborative relationship with you to foster your understanding that seeking help takes courage. Then, in a safe and supportive environment, we work together to identify and harness your strengths, while strategizing to effectively manage challenges, allowing you to create your own change process.

At the Mindful Pathway Center of New Jersey, we tailor our therapeutic approach to the individual client’s needs utilizing EMDR and other trauma focused therapies, mindfulness based therapies including ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), motivational interviewing, substance use disorder targeted therapies, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and interpersonal therapy, to help deal with a varied of issues including:

Substance Use Disorders
Trauma Related Disorders
Behavioral Addictions
Life Transitions (including Divorce, Retirement or Job Loss, Empty Nest Syndrome)
Parenting Challenges
Marital/Couples/Family Dynamics
Emerging Adult Issues (for those in late teens through 20s struggling with life choices)
