Embrace the joy you deserve.

Welcome to the Counseling Center of New Jersey® where we firmly believe that anyone can lead a fulfilling life when equipped with the proper tools and support.

Life, as we know it, is a series of highs and lows. Sometimes, we gracefully move forward, but occasionally, we get stuck at a standstill, experiencing frustration, anxiety, and isolation. It’s not always easy to understand what’s amiss, and seemingly, everything in your life appears fine except for that lingering feeling that something isn’t quite right. The constant burden and the uncertainty of what comes next can cast a shadow over the joy we should be experiencing.

However, you’re not alone in this journey. Our devoted team of counselors is here to guide you in resolving your challenges, paving the way for a life filled with the love you deserve.

Is Counseling Beneficial for you?

Many people mistakenly believe that counseling is exclusively reserved for those struggling with severe symptoms. In reality, counseling tackles a broad spectrum of concerns, no matter how minor they may seem. Your emotions, your overall wellness, and your mental state carry significant weight.

In New Jersey, we provide counseling services to individuals of all ages and backgrounds. Our mission is to assist them in managing an array of mental health challenges, which may include:

  • Sadness/depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Relationship problems or family conflicts
  • Life transitions
  • Anger management
  • Lack of confidence and self-esteem 
  • Addiction
  • Restlessness

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Should any of these challenges be affecting your life, rest assured that we’re here to support you. It’s important to note that Counseling isn’t only for those experiencing a crisis; instead, counseling is a valuable tool for any individual eager to learn new and wholesome habits and reinforce their ability to manage the daily rigors, stressors, and life’s curveballs before they become out of our control. Counseling creates the pathway for personal development and growth and unlocks the doors to our happiness.

In DBT-PE, clients initially work with the therapist to establish safety and gain the skills needed to cope with addressing trauma. While continuing in all modes of standard DBT, DBT-PE then addresses memories and beliefs related to the client’s trauma history.

 

The ultimate goal of PCIT is to enhance the parent-child relationship by helping caregivers learn ways to relate to their children warmly while also having a predictable and consistent output. PCIT also teaches caregivers how to structure and follow through with effective limits.
PEERS has been expanded to develop other social skills geared toward  career advancement, dating, friendship, educational classes, and other life experiences. We offer individual and group sessions that are designed to help you gain the skills needed to live a more independent and successful life.

The Gottman Method is a form of couples therapy that was developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman based on over 40 years of research on what makes relationships work.  It focuses on emotionally supportive communication and understanding each partner’s needs in order to foster a healthy relationship.

 

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy that was developed by Marsha M. Linehan to help people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). It is a highly structured, skills-based therapy that focuses on helping people learn new coping mechanisms to manage their emotions and behaviors.
CBT is a form of therapy that deals with present-day challenges rather than delving into past history or childhood experiences. It is a structured approach that identifies specific goals and proposes techniques to help clients meet those goals in a short time frame.
DBT-C is specifically designed for pre-adolescents who have trouble regulating intense emotions and therefore tend to act impulsively, overreact to situations, resist change, think in absolutes, and lash out verbally or physically when they are emotionally overwhelmed.
EMDR therapy helps individuals recover from distressing life experiences that show up repetitively, as well as trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression and panic disorders. It is a successful, evidence-based treatment that helps to diminish the effects of these experiences.

IRT, or Imago relationship therapy, is a form of couples therapy that evaluates points of conflict in a relationship and reframes them as opportunities to understand, learn, heal, and grow. It is based on the idea that the conflict between two people can be a source of healing, and that resolving those conflicts can lead to deeper connection.
Mindfulness and mindfulness stress reduction is designed to help individuals live their lives to the fullest, and to do so by actually living in this moment. What this means is that instead of getting stuck in the past, worrying about the future, or ruminating over thoughts and emotions, mindfulness encourages individuals to stay grounded in what’s happening now.
With a combination of psychotherapy and DBT skills work, the Emotion Fitness Program (EFP) is considered a lower-intensity alternative to DBT without the full commitment of the DBT program. EFP gives clients the space to explore current and past relationships, stresses, coping skills, and life satisfaction.

ART draws from several existing therapeutic approaches in order to reprogram how our brain stores upsetting memories or images to reduce the severity of distressing reactions. It combines elements of traditional talk therapy with creative activities to help us process difficult experiences and learn healthier coping skills. ART focuses on the connection between our thoughts, feelings, behavior, and body sensations.

 

EFT operates on the idea that the human body is like an electrical circuit with a constant flow of energy that can be disrupted by stressors. These disruptions lead to negative emotions and pain. EFT uses finger tapping on specific acupressure points while focusing on the problem to restore the body’s energy balance. The tapping is meant to release negative emotions and provide relief.
