Announcement icon Hello, I am currently NOT accepting new clients through either phone or tele therapy at the present time. I am honored to help you when open
Nancy Friedman-Cohen is not currently accepting new clients.
I am a psychotherapist, parent advocate for special needs children and adults, life coach, and expressive arts therapist working with people of all ages 16 years and up, providing individual, marital, and group therapy for the past 41 years. The most significant aspect of the psychotherapy process is the partnership that is formed between client and therapist. It must be a good fit in which trust, compassion, support, and mutual respect are formed in order to promote a safe emotional environment for working through painful experiences.
Additionally I am the owner and director of the NJ Parent Advocacy Center of New Jersey which provides advocacy for mental health and learning/educational difficulties in work and school environments for children and adults.
I use a wide array of treatment approaches. I am interactive with you in crafting goals that will help you to more effectively learn the skills and understanding in order to work through the changes that you want to make in your life and within yourself.
Nancy Friedman-Cohen
“Hi, I am a therapist with 40 years of diverse experience offering telehealth services to help you live your best life.”
