NEW JERSEY LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR

 

For over a decade, I have provided relationship counsel to hundreds of New Jersey individuals and couples with myriad concerns and struggles to restore their love for one another. As a result, I've helped conflict, tension, and disconnect melt away - beginning with the first session.

I have developed a unique approach to restoring relationships in pain. Occasionally, couples come to me with their relationship in tatters, hanging by a thread and on life support. Yet, I've helped many of those relationships turn around and heal.

I have become New Jersey's most trusted relationship care and restoration source for these reasons. My private practice is exclusively devoted to couples care and affair recovery. If you've come here in relationship pain, I can help. There's no need to suffer. Reach out and let's get started.

I understand that starting therapy can be a bit daunting.  To ease your mind just call or email. I'm here and ready to listen and help. Check out my approach to counseling by clicking the button below.

MY APPROACH TO COUNSELING

Couple counseling and affair recovery with Open Door Therapy is compassionate, competent, and professional. Care begins with the premise that the cornerstone of a secure relationship encompasses trust, safety, and emotional responsiveness.

When these elements are compromised, pain and heartache follow. Finding your way back can feel daunting.

Whether you have a few issues to sort out, are in a relationship crisis, or have a complicated matter, rest assured that you've come to the right place.

Our Practice Specialties

01

Couple Counseling

Open Door Therapy is devoted to the romantic relationship and couples care. I use the latest research to help couples with warmth and compassion. With over a decade of experience, we're confident in supporting and guiding couples to repair and restore their most important relationship.

02

Infidelity Recovery

Affair recovery counseling is our primary specialization. Infidelity is a complex relationship trauma that provokes powerful, fluctuating emotions and puts the relationship's future at risk. Therefore, recovery requires a skilled clinician adept at working with the layers of challenges inherent in affair recovery.

03

Pre-Marital Counseling

I love working with couples who are planning to create a life together! Whether there is a matter of concern or you want to set a strong foundation for the future, I can assist you. As a result of working with couples whose relationship is in jeopardy, I highly recommend working to prevent issues by participating in relationship counseling before marrying.

04

Relationship Complexities

Couples in marriages and committed relationships have myriad concerns and issues, from in-laws to finances to children and life transitions, each posing a unique challenge. I am well-versed in helping couples with their challenges at every relationship stage.  

HELP FOR COUPLES IN RELATIONSHIP PAIN

You may be wondering, "Can she help?" My success in helping couples repair their relationship begins relationship basics of quality of trust and emotional safety.

When trust and safety are solid, intimacy ensues and a bond forms. A strongly bonded pair has a dependable, durable, stable, and functional relationship.

Conversely, a relationship weakens when the intimate bond declines.

My professional strength is in helping couples reestablish trust and safety and deepen their intimate bond.  

My area of expertise is helping distant, painful, confusing and complicated relationships progress to one that is stable, satisfying and fulfilling. Let's get started.
