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.

Brielle D'Angelo 

Brielle D'Angelo LPC earned a MS in Mental Health Counseling from Monmouth University in West Long Branch, New Jersey. 

I have avid passions in my personal life and I strive to bring the same drive, compassion and dedication that fuels those passions to my professional life in order to help those who are courageous enough to accept that they cannot do this alone. 

I believe each person is an expert on their own life and sometimes need support, safety and guidance to navigate life’s peaks, valleys and everything in between. I strive to provide a comforting environment free of judgements in the hopes of supporting and nurturing a trusting therapeutic relationship with each of my clients. I incorporate a variety of treatments such as CBT, DBT, person centered, creative therapies and mindfulness based interventions to suit the individual needs of each person. My areas of interest and expertise include bereavement, anxiety, depression, pet loss and Animal Assisted Therapies. 

I whole heartedly believe every individual deserves to have happiness, fulfillment and a life worth living. Through forming an authentic and meaningful connection with my clients it is my hope that together we can explore what that means for each unique person while fostering trust, genuineness, safety and respect. 

Making the choice to seek out counseling can feel uncomfortable and vulnerable though it is tremendously courageous. Allowing oneself to be fully willing to uncover and explore their internal and external struggles while gaining perspective is admirable. I commend you for making the choice to put yourself first.

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.

I have worked as a counselor for over eight years with children, adolescents and adults in therapeutic, in home and academic settings. My specialty is working with adolescents and young adults to help them lead happier and more harmonious lives. I have experience with children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of issues including school refusal, trauma, mood disorders, anxiety, personality disorders and am LGBTQIA+ friendly. I believe it is important to help clients gain awareness about themselves and environment by connecting their thoughts to their behaviors to accomplish their treatment goals.

I also believe that there is no one-size-fits-all to therapy.  Each individual is unique, and I tailor my approach to each client’s needs and goals.  I take the time to understand exactly what you are experiencing so you can start making changes to improve your life.  I use empathy and warmth to create a safe, nonjudgmental space where you can feel comfortable to process and heal.  My ultimate goal is to help children, families and individuals reach their highest potential in a positive, mindful way.
