Courtney E. Battista LPC LCADC earned a MA and EdM in Psychological Counseling: Mental Health and Wellness from Columbia University in New York, NY.
As a Mother of three (born 2015, and twins 2017), Psychotherapist, and Professor of Psychology I believe I have various strengths and the ability connect to client concerns. The work of a Psychotherapist sometimes means to be nurturing like a Mother, insightful as a Therapist, but also an Educator that teaches skills.
I work with a range of clients from children, adolescents, to adults with experience in group, family, and individual psychotherapy.
My focus is to help clients gain insight into their concerns, gain an empowered sense of self, internalize a range of coping skills, and minimize negative influences.
I believe in the mind-body connection and uses mindfulness techniques as a way of connecting differently to thoughts and emotions.
Jacqueline Persico LAC earned a MA in Psychological Studies and EdS in School Psychology from Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey.
I worked for many years as a school psychologist serving children, adolescents, and young adults. I have a passion for human services and mental health wellness. I believe in a client-centered treatment philosophy, and my approach is empathic, genuine, and with unconditional positive regard. I have experience in working with clients who are navigating a wide range of social and emotional needs, including and not limited to, anxiety, depression, ADHD, autism, oppositional defiant disorder, bipolar disorder, and family relational challenges. I firmly believe that each client has a right to a safe space, to be themselves and explore their emotional health, and to develop individualized tools and skills for a positive well-being and happiness.
