Welcome to Stem Wellness Institute
Stem Wellness Institute is a proponent and advocate of mental health services for individuals, couples, and families.
As a mental health expert, I am committed to helping my clients make meaningful change through focused, relational, and strength-based therapy. Through psychotherapy counseling services, I help my clients overcome specific types of barriers that prevent them from achieving their full potential, while addressing the root of their challenges; past or present, and empowering them to meet their treatment goals.
“Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary.”
About Our Therapy Services
Countless research studies have shown that effective therapy actually works. Interestingly, further findings indicate that recipients of psychotherapy paralleled and even exceeded those of medication therapy; with longer and more sustainable effects. Researchers at the McGovern Institute for the Brain Research demonstrated that therapy alters neural pathways and rewires the way they are connected changing the way we process information about ourselves and the world. This allows us the opportunity to correct painful experiences that became encoded when we were young, while decreasing maladaptive behaviors and substituting them for healthier and more productive ways of living. If you’re seeking mental health services from a qualified therapist, reach out to me today. I offer psychotherapy counseling to clients across New Jersey.
I am honored to be able to help individuals and couples on their journey to heal, transform, find wholeness and hope. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, which means we will work together to devise a plan based on your unique needs. As your goals and desires may change over time, we approach them with gentleness and compassion in our counseling services. My therapy sessions are aimed at helping you regain that control and equipping you with the tools and methods necessary to lead a more fulfilling and confident life.
“Trauma is not what happens to us, rather what happens inside us”.
Traumatic events can shatter our fundamental sense of safety, identity and trust in others, making us feel that our pain is who we are. Self-regulating and attuning our bodies will help you feel better equipped to deal with difficult situations, while still practicing self-awareness, managing triggers, and recognizing the trauma that resides within our bodies. Without this painstaking effort to separate ourselves from this trauma, we end up falling back into the same pattern and behaviors that protected us from it—but no longer serve us.
I know the importance of a safe, supportive environment and strive to provide that to each client. I am here to walk beside you, hear your experience, provide guidance, and help you find the life you've so desired. You don’t have to be alone on the journey. No matter what’s been done to you or what you’ve done, you deserve a caring and judgment-free space to heal.
It takes great courage to ask for help, and it’s where counseling begins.
