Hello and welcome! My name is Kathleen Agosto and I am a bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in New Jersey. I work primarily with couples who wish to repair and rebuild their relationship into one that is flourishing. Working with families since the 1970’s, and as a licensed therapist since 2005, my experience has led me to have a great appreciation for the joy one can experience in living in a healthy relationship. It has also led me to a unique place where I am competent to work with individuals overcoming trauma, grieving the loss of a loved one, battling cancer, or those who cannot see their own worth.

Hi, my name is Tammy Vaughn. My clients, whether children or adults, tell me they feel comfortable with me because I'm friendly and relatable. My client centered approach is important to me because I believe that clients must feel heard, understood and helped. After a crisis, my clients often reach out to me again because they need support and to be heard or to create a plan. Some clients have requested a spiritual or Christian focus to their counseling, which is another area I can help you better understand. I provide a safe space to share problems and work on your goals. I hope to help you soon!

Have you been feeling "stuck?" Are you having difficulty coping with stress in your life due to relationships, parenting, employment or other life transitions? Do you have concerns about your child's behavioral or emotional functioning? Does your child have difficulty interacting with his/her peers? If any of the above ring true, please know that you are not alone. Often, accepting that there is a problem, or that something in your life needs improvement, can be a difficult first step. It is not uncommon to encounter bumps in the road, though it's important to know that these challenging times CAN improve.

The ideal client typically has family or interpersonal relationship conflicts and/or poor boundaries. Also, at times the ideal client has a history of childhood trauma or childhood conflicts that the client has not processed. I would process their family/interpersonal relationship conflicts and trauma/conflicts and create healthy coping skills to cope with these issues. Also, I would want to explore with the client what the client considers healthy and unhealthy boundaries and be able to create healthier boundaries in these relationships.

Anxiety is a sneaky feeling that can seem like it's under control one minute, and then skyrocketing out of this world the next. Stress can feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. Sometimes these feelings come from situational events and other times they may feel like they come out of nowhere! If you are experiencing anxiety, panic, or stress, we can work together to find ways to actively decrease the stressors in life and find new ways to think about future issues. We can work together to figure out the best plan for you to get some relief from these overwhelming symptoms. Don't let your feelings take over your life!
