I am very passionate about Mental Health and would love to help your child manage their Mental Health or you to manage your own. Mental Health and Wellness is a priority, and a huge part of us, it is completely healthy and normal to need help in balancing it. 

 

I am a Licensed Associate Counselor in New Jersey practicing under the professional license of Jordan Faiman, LPC, the owner of JSF Professional Counseling Services as I work toward my LPC. I completed my Masters of Arts in Counseling services at Rider University in 2019, with a concentration in School Counseling. From there I went on to work in Robbinsville Public Schools as a High School, then Middle School Counselor and a Student Assistance Counselor. In the Winter of 2020, I completed my Clinical Mental Health requirements and received my license to start practicing outside of schools in 2021. I continue to serve Robbinsville Public Schools to provide direct service treatment to pre-teens and adolescents.

 

Through my experience as a Counselor, I have seen the value of relationships, connections and communication for kids and adults. I am here to help your child or you manage mental health concerns by facilitating growth in these areas. Our work together will focus on strengths and empowerment by providing a completely non-judgmental and safe space. I believe that everyone has the ability to grow when they want to, and that people innately want to see the best for themselves. I am here to help bring out these abilities that your child or you already possess.

 

I have extensive experience in providing counseling for children, pre-teens and adolescents with various mental health concerns such as Crisis Management and Intervention, Life stressors, Anxiety, Depression, LGBTQIA+ coming out process, Trauma, Grief, Self-esteem/Image, Stress Management, Relationship Conflicts, Life Transitions, Substance Use and Abuse individually or in group counseling. Additionally, I have experience working with families to provide family counseling. My therapeutic approach is an Eclectic-Multimodal one based in Person Centered Theory and a Strengths Based approach while using the following techniques: Motivational Interviewing, Expressive Arts, Activity-based, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused, and Mindfulness.
