I am a New Jersey and New York State Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has provided support to individuals, couples and families for over 19 years. In that time I have had the privilege to assist clients in working through issues surrounding self-esteem and self-worth, relationships, anxiety, trauma, grief and bereavement, parent coaching and support, life transitions, work stress, and physical illness. I truly believe effective psychotherapy provides us with comfort, insight and the tools to help find balance in our lives. .
Therapy can be a very rewarding and empowering experience, particularly when it is achieved in collaboration with a trusting, nonjudgmental, nurturing therapist. I enjoy being a therapist whom people feel comfortable with and can trust to help them. My work centers around helping children (ages 3+), adolescents, and families make positive changes in their lives. I work collaboratively with parents, as they are essential in the therapeutic process. Collaboration also often includes work with schools and other professionals.
Are you seeking individual or group therapy, a psychological evaluation, career testing, or career coaching? Full telehealth, outdoor sessions, and indoor air filtration are offered, and most insurance plans accepted. With over 20 years of therapy, testing, teaching, and supervising experience, and as both a clinical psychologist and a school psychologist, Dr. Schrimmer has a uniquely comprehensive practice. Calls generally receive a response by the next business day. In addition to daytime appointments, weekend and evening hours are available.
I see psychotherapy as a journey in which two individuals, therapist and patient, co-create the story of the patient's life. In doing so, together they connect disconnected parts of the self, acknowledge and resolve internal conflicts, work through old losses, and discover new options for leading a more purposeful and meaningful life.
Change – good or bad – is often a very painful or scary thing, whether or not one is expecting it. If you are seeking help to manage the change in your life – in relationship(s), career, lifestyle choices, behavior, stress reduction, caregiving, or managing depression, anxiety, or trauma – I offer a person-centered, experiential approach.
Have you been feeling anxious, overwhelmed, unfocused? Would you like to gain more control of your stress, feel happier, gain confidence and balance? It is not uncommon to have physical, emotional, and mental health concerns exacerbated by day-to day-stressors, or a life change or transition. We all can become overwhelmed and struggle with difficult emotions at times. Whether you are looking for therapy to address fear, anger, anxiety, sadness, a specific situation, a health concern, traumatic event, grief, or major stressor; there is hope. Let me help you.
When life becomes challenging, reaching out to a mental health professional can be helpful. I see the therapeutic process as one in which we can work together to identify and work through the personal, professional, individual or relational issues that are preventing you from living the fulfilling life that you seek. With over 25 years of experience, my approach to achieving this success with you is informed by psychodynamic, interpersonal and CBT principles, though I draw from many different modalities. I also have advanced certification in Neuroptimal dynamical neurofeedback brain training.
Are your thoughts and feelings becoming overwhelming? Do you find yourself struggling with self doubt, feeling unheard/ misunderstood? A trusting, and comfortable relationship is a fundamental component in ensuring therapeutic success. My compassionate, client-centered approach enables me to tailor my practice to meet the needs of each individual. Through this individualized approach, I can assist you in understanding the underlying core components leading to your undesirable feelings, and just how these feelings impact the perception we hold of ourselves, as well as the world around us.
Reaching out for help doesn’t always feel easy, and it can take courage to make the first step. Even if we have the conscious willingness to change, we may feel blocked or stuck. By creating a safe, genuinely caring, and non-judgmental environment, I help individuals, couples, and families navigate through hard emotional processes. I am a bilingual national board-certified clinical mental health counselor, specialized in empowering adults who experience a wide range of struggles like anxiety, depression, self-esteem, marital issues, peer and familial relationships, loss and grief, trauma, abuse.
Is your child or adolescent experiencing difficulties at school or at home - maybe anxiety, depression, behavioral challenges or peer relationship difficulties? Do you wish you could help, but you do not know where to turn or what to do? Childhood and adolescence can be difficult and navigating the challenges that occur can become overwhelming. Through therapy, you and your child will learn strategies for addressing these difficulties and ways to move forward in a valued-direction. I have dedicated my career to becoming an expert in helping youth, young adults and families excel and I would love to be in your corner.
I provide supportive psychotherapy for teens and adults needing help with particular struggles and challenges they are facing. I specialize in the evaluation and treatment of anxiety disorders and substance abuse related disorders. I provide a warm, safe and non-judgemental environment to help my clients work through their issues. Life absolutely has its challenges but together we can work through these difficulties to achieve acceptance and fulfillment in one's life.
People usually seek therapy during times of great stress, when their lives feel out of control, or when they are increasingly anxious or depressed, or when they feel stuck or dissatisfied, and are looking for change. My goal is to provide you a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere that will help you express yourself, explore and clarify your feelings, understand yourself and others, find options, and make changes in your life. I view psychotherapy as an active collaboration and seek to create a welcoming and comfortable base of strengthening support.
Life is hard, therapy doesn’t have to be. I take a strengths based, collaborative approach to therapy to treat depression, anxiety, grief and loss, relationship and marital issues, trauma and PTSD among many other challenges that people face every day. I use evidence based methods to help my clients cope with stressors, improve relationships, manage symptoms and get more out of life. Contact me to discuss how I can help you.
It has been my privilege for the last 30 years in assisting my clients in resolving a variety of challenges - anxiety, depression, unresolved grief, unresolved trauma (both childhood and adult), marital problems and divorce recovery. Often when faulty learning (i.e., Stinkin' Thinkin') results from traumatic events or unhealthy relationships, effective help requires applying psychological, social and spiritual resources.
Yes, I'm accepting new clients, and usually can schedule a session within a few days. I work with teens and adults who are feeling anxious, stressed, depressed, unmotivated, irritable, struggling with life transitions or self-medicating with alcohol, marijuana or food. Let's map out a plan to get your life back on track. I offer confidential virtual therapy and a solution-oriented approach to reboot your life and become your best self. I can help you uncover your inner strengths and navigate your way to a place of healing, hope and calm. Healing happens in a judgment-free safe space where you can be completely open and honest.
Experience life in a new, more positively robust way. Learn how to live, love and laugh with abundance and leave your negative feelings behind. Therapy works. I can teach you how to make decisions that support living a happy and healthy life by avoiding unhealthy relationships, negative thinking, upsetting emotions and addictive behaviors. I will provide a safe space that is needed for healing. Together we will transform destructive cycles and grow towards a richer, more satisfying life. I think you will find me to be an open, responsive, insightful and non-judgmental person with a vast therapy "tool kit."
We are a husband and wife team providing in office as well as in home counseling. Dan specializes in addiction treatment as well as veterans and disabilities and Michele does home visits in the Middletown area for home bound elderly and folks with disabilities.
Welcome! Making the decision to enter therapy can be challenging, yet fulfilling and life altering. I welcome the opportunity to work with you or your family in navigating that process. I provide a nonjudgmental, discrete, safe, compassionate environment to facilitate growth and change.
I counsel clients who are dealing with difficult life challenges. Over time it's not unusual to feel swept away by intense thoughts and feelings. Increasing an awareness of our selves and others can reverse "feeling stuck" and turns us toward our challenges with more effective options and with a calmer sense of well being. I've been in private practice for 20+ years; and I enjoy building a genuine connection with clients that is so essential to successful therapy. Working in a collaborative relationship is an energizing experience for clients and me.
