Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

True healing—deep healing—begins with understanding the impact of psychological forces and their frictions in our lives—families, ancestry, schools, cultures, friends, and work. This recognition is the catalyst for your own natural healing process and the core of my approach. I am trained in a number of models of healing, including Internal Family Systems Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Gestalt Therapy and Intuitive Healing and other techniques. I apply these techniques individually and in combination according to the needs of my clients, to help them become better parents, to deepen their intimate relationships and flourish as healthy individuals.

Each client who comes into my room brings with them their own history; their own story. Respect is paramount. Empathy is paramount. The experience of coming into therapy for the first time, can be a daunting one. "Will he help?" "Will he get me?" "Will I be judged?" These are just a few of many that can swirl around in a client's mind. I have been doing this for quite a while. I have had a successful practice over the years, primarily because I show respect, I can put myself in the other's shoes, I am an active listener and an active participant. I ask questions, I support, I challenge in a supportive manner, I offer guidance when needed. You are not alone in this.

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.

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

In 07450 - Nearby to Jersey City.

Mindfulness is the key to opening up space to looking at and changing our most sacred guiding principles which repeatedly limit our options or otherwise have us colliding with realities that defy our learned expectations. Our fears of cleaning house of strategies that fail us are two fold: 1) We are afraid of betraying the internalized images of our caregivers, and 2) We are unsure of ourselves to replace the old with the new. A secure attachment to myself neutralizes these fears. Through modeling and attuned compassionate, accepting, and nurturing responses I will teach you how to re-parent yourself and mourn the losses of mistakes made by your caregivers.

Psychotherapist /Psychoanalyst

In 10463 - Nearby to Jersey City.

Psychotherapy is a two man sport. What I mean by that is that it is not something one can do alone. I subscribe to the theory of thinking described by Wilehlem Bion, as a process in need of 2 people when it pertains to thinking a difficult or challenging thought. Thinking out loud together with another person and especially a professional listener can be exhilarating and healing.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Talk is powerful. Through talk we can learn how to listen, how to better understand ourselves and those around us, and begin the process of change. As a therapist, my goal is to listen to you and your needs so that I can give you the tools to move forward in your life and towards the goals you want to accomplish. In my practice I have helped individuals and couples deal with anxiety, depression, infidelity, and many life changes and challenges, and I know that no problem is too great too overcome. When you're ready for a real conversation, let's talk.

Psychotherapy has been proven to relieve symptoms of stress. Stress comes in many forms, feelings, expressions and feels different for each person. My goal in psychotherapy is to hold a safe space for you to explore what it is that brought you here, so that, together with you, I can help you improve your life, reduce your stress symptoms as well as discover and experience meaning in everyday life.

Psychotherapy, therapy, and counseling are general terms that describe a way of talking about issues with a mental health professional. I will help you reach your goal, whether it is to explore relationships to better understand yourself and others; to end self-destructive habits and identify and change behaviors or thoughts that adversely effect your life; to heal family conflicts and get past the pain and anger and let it go; or to find better ways to cope with and solve problems -- I will be there with you to walk the path to a richer and more satisfying life.

Licensed Psychotherapist

Psychotherapy is a blanket term. The way I see it, it's two people in a room working to make your life easier, and better. Each client has different personalities, emotional patterns, histories, goals and desires, and so your therapy will be individualized, according to your needs and other psychological and personality factors, to make the process work for you. I draw on a variety of schools and techniques.

In 11375 - Nearby to Jersey City.

As experienced, highly-credentialed clinical psychologists and couples counselors, Dr. Joel Stukalin and Dr. Sara Mandelbaum have the necessary background to conduct short-term or psychoanalystic psychotherapy with clients. This means that clients can decide to work on direct symptom-relief or more comprehensive therapy that may lead to a deeper understanding of inner-conflicts, self-aspirations and unconscious processes. In order to do our psychotherapy compassionately and effectively, Dr. Joel and Dr. Sara collaborate closely with clients to understand their initial motives and unfolding goals within the psychotherapy process. Clients often benefit from this higher standard of care.
