Individual Intake Evaluation

In some ways, finding the right therapist is like dating. You want a change, even if it means asking a stranger for help. But which stranger? It must be someone you like well enough. Someone you can trust with your secrets, and whom you think can help you. The first session should be focused on your needs and comfortability to safely decide if this therapeutic alliance is right for you. 

Consultation

Bridget has been recognized as a mental health expert and has been asked on multiple occasions to speak at The College of New Jersey regarding substance abuse harm reduction strategies and stress management skills for incoming college students. She offers consultation sessions to companies and local organizations seeking to enhance employee's psychological wellbeing and/or competency in race-related issues.

Individual Psychotherapy

Do I have to be "sick" to see you?Thinking that one has to be “seriously disturbed” in order to see a therapist is a myth. While I do have extensive training in the treatment of anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), I also treat everyday challenges like navigating a career change, improving parenting skills, increasing stress management skills, or navigating a relationship issues such as a divorce or entering a marriage.

Brief Psychotherapy

Brief psychotherapy is a time-limited therapy approach and usually includes 6-12 sessions. Bridget and the client can determine the length of sessions together. The goal is to feel better in a relatively short amount of time, and through evidence-based approaches such as CBT in therapy you can. 

Telehealth Services

Currently, we offer the option of telehealth services for residents in New Jersey. Over three decades of research has provided substantial evidence for the effectiveness of telehealth services (Varker et al., 2019). The most widely studied is cognitive behaviour therapy with strong evidence that it is as effective as clinician-delivered CBT and for a wide range of mental and physical health conditions (Carlbring et al., 2018). 

Personal Growth & Wellness

Life is stressful, there's no doubt about it. Personal growth is about making life choices and overcoming stressors. Bridget incorporates mindfulness approaches and distress intolerance techniques to enhance client's overall wellbeing.

 

For graduate students entering the field of counseling, therapy can be extremely beneficial to monitor your stress/ anxiety symptoms and normalize your experience.
