I have over 20 years of varied experience in mental health including both inpatient and outpatient psychiatric facilities, Addictions and Dual Diagnosis, hospice including bereavement support, and corrections.
Kristen is not able to accept any new clients at this time. She sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience. My passion is helping people to live healthier, happier lives that are not dominated by painful emotions. Anxiety, panic, depression and other symptoms can become debilitating for some people. Sometimes these symptoms result from a particular life situation but other times the symptoms seem to come from nowhere. Either way, you CAN feel better with help and support. There is always a way - it's how you face life's twists and turns that changes the game!!

Addiction and mental health disorders are often misunderstood. I believe in meeting my clients where they are and empowering awareness and meaningful change. There isn't a one size fits all approach and I use various techniques to meet unique needs of each individual. Successful treatment involves education and support. I have worked in a variety of settings over the past 15 years including hospital based programs, day programs, outpatient programs, and within the criminal justice system.

Taking the time looking into finding a counselor is a very brave step towards positive change and development!. Asking for help is hard to do, and I believe you have come to the right place! I have a wide range of experience in working with adults who are struggling with the following topics: co-occurring disorders with substance use and mental health issues, depression, anxiety, bipolar, mood disorders, couples therapy and managing basic life stressors. Life can get the best of us sometimes, so why not share with someone who is willing to actively listen and provide some insight to help you move forward.

What a year it's been, huh? If you have been thinking about starting therapy, now is the time! It can be tough to find a good match or someone you "click" with. I am confident I can help you develop a plan to improve your life and develop a therapeutic relationship that will make you comfortable. I realize thinking about going to therapy can be scary and intimidating, I do not think this is how it needs to be! My ideal relationship with a client is one where we explore the problems that have brought you in, with maybe a few good laughs along the way.

Therapy can be a wonderful process to examine self, reflect, and grow toward the direction of hope and healing. I offer a safe, supportive and private environment where you may explore and work through life challenges. If you're struggling with anxiety, depression, grief and loss,`the aftermath of trauma, or panic attacks therapy can be an viable source of comfort and healing. At times life gives us more than we can handle and the challenges seem to go beyond our ability to cope. It is at these times when therapy can be most beneficial.

Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.

Dual Diagnosis Therapists
Dual diagnosis (also called co-occurring disorders, COD) occurs when clients suffer from a mental illness while also experiencing a substance abuse problem. Diagnosing a psychiatric disorder in someone with a substance abuse issue is challenging as the drug abuse itself can often produce psychiatric symptoms. These dual diagnosis therapists in Toms River may provide dual diagnosis programs, dual diagnosis facilities or Toms River dual diagnosis treatment - dual diagnosis rehab may be relevant. A therapist can help provide support or connect you to a Toms River COD network or support group.
