223 Bloomfield Street, suite 107, Hoboken, New Jersey 07030
Psychotherapists at the Lukin Center are trained in several treatment styles, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and emotionally focused therapy (EFT), both of which are widely researched and have been shown to be effective for many clients. CBT is a structured treatment that helps clients change their thoughts and actions in order to change their attitudes and beliefs and meet their life goals. EFT was developed for couples and adapted for families. Through this treatment, the therapist helps the couple or family identify maladaptive patterns in members' interactions with one another and replace them with healthier, adaptive interactions in which everyone feels supported.

Are you feeling alone and misunderstood? Are you experiencing conflicts that don't seem to be manageable? Are you feeling as if you aren't living up to your true potential? These are the questions that so many people ask and these are some of the very reasons why Psychotherapy is a useful tool for getting yourself back on track. I offer a supportive atmosphere where we can explore all of these questions and attempt to put them into a healthier perspective. Through our dynamic work together we will try to answer these questions and get you back to the person that you once knew and maybe, just maybe a chance to meet the person that you always hoped to become.

I believe it is a privilege to have clients tell me their stories in psychotherapy. Clients often benefit from the process of unburdening themselves from the pain and upset they have been dealing with. I work in a very respectful manner to help clients start to change their perceptions to a more positive place. I am specifically trained in a solution focused, cognitive behavioral and family systems approach. These approaches tend to help people in a structured, timely manner to achieve the goals they have for their own therapy.

I've been doing this over a quarter century and it always comes down to this: When you identify - and feel - what happens inside you, what happens between you and others, and what happened that you're not fully remembering or respecting, you feel better and function better. I've seen this happen across all types of people, all ages, and all kinds of problems that bring them into treatment. Of course, along the way I can help you with whatever person, boss, spouse, decision, or personality quirk (yours or theirs) that's irking you, but the real change and the real excitement come from that kind of discovery. Try it and see.

Are you struggling with a problem in your work or love life? Or are you suffering from emotional symptoms that leave you frustrated, alone, or fearful of the future? Whether you have been in therapy for years or never before, talk therapy with Dr. Swensen could be the perfect medicine. While I work on your entire personality, not just the symptom(s) you come to therapy with, it is a process of learning to say all of your thoughts and feelings, including ones that are embarrassing or leave you feeling shameful. Psychotherapy with me will offer you the chance to have the life you truly want, in love, work, and play.

Dr. Vaughan believes that psychotherapy can benefit anyone. Clients pursue therapy for a wide variety of reasons. Some simply want an objective, non-judgmental, and trustworthy source of support and feedback, while others seek tools for working through crises. Therapy with Dr. Vaughan is engaging and active. The particular goals of psychotherapy are chosen by the client. Some examples of goals include personal growth and self-actualization, increased life satisfaction, improved relationships, greater self-confidence, effective stress management, and reduced anxiety and depression. Dr. Vaughan emphasizes that no problem is too big or small, common or rare, to be addressed in therapy.

Psychotherapy When people enter therapy they want to make changes and I take that striving very seriously. My approach depends on the patient with whom I am working, but a belief I always hold is that people heal and change when they cultivate a healthy internal voice that can guide them through the challenges of their past, present, and future. Some very personal things are talked about in therapy and I feel it is important that a patient feel safe to talk about such things. Therefore, a patient should talk about personal material only when they decide they are ready and that patient and therapist should work together to make the space safe for such conversations.
