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.
Christine Vazzano LPC, NCC earned earned a MS in Mental Health Counseling from Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey.
I have worked over 10 years helping individuals find relief by working through their unique challenges in their lives by reflecting, reframing, and rebuilding a healthier sense of self. I believe trust, empathy, and compassion towards oneself and others is what holds a strong foundation for any relationship; personal or therapeutic. My motivation in this field is to help individuals improve their confidence in knowing how to navigate making decisions and better manage negativity that gets in the way of living day to day. Together, I can help individuals become more aware of unhealthy patterns, build mastery with coping skills, and develop a more positive lifestyle.
I have experience in working with a range of clients from adolescents to adults with a wide range of emotional and social needs including anxiety, depression, mood disorders, relationship issues, self identity and self esteem issues, life transitions, and coping skill education. I have experience with group, family, couples and individual psychotherapy.
We all have the ability to make change and improve our lives. Finding someone to help guide us in the right direction is the first step.
