Being a gay male, I can appreciate the importance of finding a provider who is sensitive to your lived experience and point of view.
I feel that everyone has the ability to cope, sometimes finding that ability to cope can be difficult; I see myself as a clinician who will help you find the healthy coping skills that will work for you. My counseling style is person-centered. I have experience practicing in Community Health Care Agencies in Morris County, Passaic County, Mental Health Association of Morris, Essex, and Passaic County, Hospice, C.A.S.A. of Morris County, Private Practice and I am an adjunct professor at WPU in the counseling department and I am a approved clinical supervisor.

I work with individuals to help them increase self-awareness and lead happier lives. My unique background makes me different than most therapists. In addition to being a licensed therapist, I have a PhD in Philosophy. As a therapist and life coach, I help individuals struggling with relationships, codependency, sexual compulsivity, and substance/alcohol abuse. I also work with adult children of alcoholics, those who grew up in families where emotional chaos and parent addiction may be affecting their adult relationships. In addition, I work with gay individuals and couples.

I know you are suffering and life may seem like a never-ending cycle from one obstacle to another. I know that it took a lot of courage to get out of bed today and get through your day while feeling like there’s a dark cloud over you. We all go through difficult situations in our lives that can lead us to feel overwhelmed. You don’t have to live in a constant state of fear, worry and despair for the rest of your life. I have seen first hand the transformation that can happen within an individual when they are ready for change.

With many challenges in today’s times, it can be difficult to maintain a positive outlook on life. These challenges can be a result from trauma, grieving the loss of a loved one, divorce, family conflict or identity issues. Other stressors can be school performance, loss of employment, suffering from an illness or injury, impacts from COVID-19, or immigration/deportation concerns which can make going through your day-to-day seem like an impossible task. The good thing is that there is help.

Where to even begin? Sometimes it's hard to know. Do you feel overwhelmed by your day-to-day responsibilities or unexpected events? Are you confused about your path in life, feeling unheard or misunderstood, full of self-doubt? Are you experiencing heartache, the stress of caregiving, or a chronic illness? Maybe you’re feeling stuck, or about to embark on a big life transition? Are you anxious or sad for what sometimes feels like no reason? Whatever questions you have about life and where you are heading, therapy can provide a needed pause to determine the steps to make life feel more manageable and ultimately more fulfilling.

My philosophy is to approach each person as an individual with his or her own ability/willingness/readiness to work through the issues at hand. I believe our thought process can be our own worst enemy at times and I work to assist the client to be more aware of the pitfalls of these negatively charged thoughts. I combine a range of therapeutic approaches based on your distinct needs of the client. I provide counseling services for those looking to reduce and manage anxiety and depression, develop affirmative overall functioning, and obtain assistance in confronting life trials.

Life is very much like driving a car. We can't only focus on the destination, and we can't stare into the rearview mirror. Either of these actions would cause an accident, and most certainly distract us from our main goal - keeping our eyes on the road! In my practice, I take on the GPS role. The driver and the GPS are a team. This is where therapy is so helpful. The relationship between the client and the therapist is a most powerful one, involving trust and collaboration, whereby the client feels safe and supported.

Are you looking to make changes in your life for the better? Do you feel lost or overwhelmed due to the lack of support and resources to make that happen? I strongly believe in establishing collaborative therapeutic relationships, with clients being active participants in their own personal growth and recovery. By the creation and implementation of treatment plans tailored around their current needs, preferences, and values, clients will become confident in making their own life's decisions. The first step towards changing your life begins here! Brittany is a Licensed Social Worker with a Masters degree from Fordham University.

What type of Wayne mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Wayne?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
