I adapt my psychotherapy approach to fit the needs of my client's. To help clients manage acute symptoms such as anxiety I utilize cognitive behavior therapy and mindfulness (read more about this on my website drbrustein.com). I am also trained in psychodynamic therapy which helps clients gain self awareness regarding self image issues, self sabotaging behaviors or interpersonal relationship issues.

Beginning therapy does not have to be intimidating. Most people find that they feel a sense of relief immediately after scheduling the first appointment, and feel even better after the first session. It is important, though, that you find a therapist that you feel safe and comfortable with. Clients describe me as warm and approachable, with a positive an practical approach to solving problems. I tend to focus on the positive as much as possible and to build on the natural strengths that we all have.

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on the connection between your feelings, beliefs and behaviors. Through CBT, I will help you understand how your distorted, unhealthy and/or self-destructive thinking patterns influence how you behavior or respond in certain situations. Once you are able to grasp why you think the way you do and how your thinking affects your behavior, then you can begin to change your mindset so it reflects a healthy, well-adjusted individual.

Psychotherapist, clinical, transformation depth psycholigy
Wall Twp, New Jersey 07719
In psychotherapy Ms. Tracey helps patients to find the areas in which they are most comfortable in dealing with the world, then to slowly bring in its opposite. This is done by certain questions Ms. Tracey asks which bring in the individual's awareness and insights into the opposite part of the self. Integrating them brings about being in one's true self rather than the rote false self most people are geared for. Therapeutic techniques help you to access your unconscious, hidden side, and deepest feelings and thoughts. Once they are out in the open they can be dealt with. It is much like turning on a light in a dark room.

All people have problems. When the problems are not the consequence of their own doing, such as resulting from abuse, neglect, or tragedy, I work to help these individuals muster their personal resources to better cope and learn recover from the trauma. However, most of the problems that people tend to have are the result of the poor choices they make. This is the frequent consequence of not really knowing who they are. My work as a psychotherapist is to help my clients become more aware of themselves. Lots of times it means facing some irrational and negative beliefs that get played out over and over. I work in a collaborative way that helps increase my clients knowledge of themselves.

The idea to start therapy can come from a crisis or can emerge from the frustration of life not going in the direction we envisioned. Some of my clients start off the first session with “I never thought I would find myself in counseling” to “I have benefited from many therapeutic relationships and I am excited to start this one”. We are all in different places in our lives when our therapeutic journey begins and our needs, goals, and desires can be a wide range of possibilities. How you feel about your therapist is the most important ingredient in successful therapy. I routinely encourage feedback to ensure we are communicating and collaborating to exceed your needs.

Whether working with individuals or couples, I utilize an individualized and collaborative approach to psychotherapy. I am often asked by prospective clients how long or in what way I treat a particular issue and my response is that I do not use a cookie-cutter approach to people and their presenting problems. Everyone is unique and has their own set of strengths and challenges. In our first session, I will provide you with my assessment of the presenting problem and recommendations for treatment and long term sustained recovery. If you are not comfortable with my approach or with me, I will assist you in finding another therapist.

When I work with clients in psychotherapy my focus is on careful listening to their emotional experience and responses. I am especially attuned to listening and learning about the quality of their closest connections. Oftentimes when an individual, couple or family is in pain it is nearly always an indication that their most important relationships are suffering in some way. My listening and responses are focused on the clients experiences with those that matter most to them and to help them find ways to express what they truly need and want from those that they are most emotionally dependent upon. I help them connect with that vulnerable place within them.

Psychotherapy is a broad term. In general, I take a wellness based approach to therapy. Together, we will identify what you see as resources within yourself and your social/family network and help you develop sustainable skills for coping with challenges you encounter. You will leave treatment understanding yourself and your strengths better than you did before, and confidence in the knowledge that you can cope with whatever lies ahead.

The breakthroughs and difficulties encountered in psychotherapy need to be handled within a relationship that is based on trust, professionalism and courage. I will do my best to provide a comforting space that will allow you to flourish and grow into the person that you know is possible. I am confident that my extensive training and experience in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis can provide a great treatment process. Avoiding pain frequently becomes our greatest source of pain. Together lets face the difficulties of life in order to achieve the contentment that is available to us all.

People heal within a relationship that brings forth the experience of honesty, trust, positive regard, non judgement, and compassion. My approach to psychotherapy provides this experience. Clients benefit through a collaborative process that enables understanding and resolution of the emotional roadblocks in relationships with significant others, children and coworkers.
