Therapists Specializing in Medical Professionals' Mental Health in New Jersey

Many medical professionals are at risk of burnout and work-related stress due to the nature of the work: long hours, a complex and intense workload, exposure to suffering, and a high emotional load. These pressures can be overwhelming and can increase vulnerability to symptoms of common mental health challenges, such as depression or anxiety.

When these symptoms start to impact daily life or work, it can help to remember that your own wellbeing is equally as important as that of your patients. Therapy can be a powerful tool for improving your overall health and functioning. Many efficacious therapy modalities can be explored with the providers below, so find an approach that resonates with you and is a good fit for your needs. Some therapists might focus on helping you develop new coping skills, explore workplace problems, and reason through potential solutions to these problems. Other providers might help you examine your thinking patterns and help you develop alternative perspectives.

Since you're here, you're probably going through a lot right now and could use a friendly, experienced ally to help you navigate life. Let me assure you that you're in the right place and with the right clinician. My name is Dr. Nadine O'Reilly and I look forward to providing you with a safe space to be yourself, free from judgment or criticism - a haven from stress and pressure.

Clients have described me as a warm, all-embracing straight-shooter with a healthy sense of humor who is genuinely invested in my clients' journeys. I keep it real, so if you're tired of - or just not into - flowery, woo-woo therapy I'm your person. Nothing I've ever heard has shocked me...we've all got "stuff" and that's what makes us unique.

I practice from a person-centered perspective and I incorporate elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic Theory, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR with my clients (not all at once and rarely all with each, of course!). My training and background ensures that you get what you need. Whether you're struggling with sadness, nervousness, stress, or would like to process a trauma, I'm here for you every step of the way. When you're with me, your thoughts, feelings and perceptions are center stage, validated, and nurtured.

I would love to hear your stories — and how you're feeling today. Our session will begin with your story. We will listen together without criticism or judgment. Over time, as we continue, you'll gain a new perspective and awareness, accompanied by fresh ideas and behaviors, and many practical tools. As we understand and explore the aspects of your life, the therapy room will become a safe space to rehearse your real life. You'll find viable solutions for the day-to-day issues you face outside of our session room.

Anxiety has hijacked your life. You have a great life but you aren’t really present in it. You can’t really enjoy it.  You’re overwhelmed.  Although you know intellectually you shouldn’t be worried, you cannot make yourself believe there’s nothing to be afraid of, and, no matter how hard you try, you can’t stop thinking about it. Sometimes you’re betrayed by your body — your heart beats so hard, your breath gets shallow, and your stomach is in knots.  Sometimes you feel like you’re going crazy.

You would love to choose a life of freedom and confidence. Imagine a day in which you are free to choose your actions based on what excites you and what you’re curious about, rather than steering clear of what scares you. What would that life look like? What would you be able to do that you cannot do now? What would happen, how would your life change, if you were unleashed, and no longer limited?

You’re ready to move forward.  You’re ready for it to be different.  You can imagine a bigger, richer life.  And, you’re ready to work for it.

No matter the nature of the thing you fear, no matter the thing that holds you back, I can help.

Every psychotherapy, whether it involves talking, medications or a combination of both, must begin with a clear sense of who an individual wants to be, or what defines that individual's core essence. Everything proceeds from this starting point in a process that is constantly reassessing the difference between that "ideal self" and where one is in the moment. This contrast assures that there will be constant movement forwards in the therapy. Of course one invariably seeks help at a moment of acute distress, but emerging from a place of discontent or suffering offers a unique opportunity at transformation and it is our goal to take full advantage of that opportunity.

By far the most powerful agency we possess is the ability to choose our life's path. Our thoughts and emotions can be fleeting and unreliable but they can also erode the confidence in our ability to make the choices that serve us well. A therapeutic process must restore the preeminence of your choices to allow you to craft the life that deep down, you always knew you were meant to lead.

Greetings! Thank you for your interest in learning more about collaborating with me. I have provided information below, on my theoretical orientation and areas of specialization. Please feel free to message me with any questions, or schedule a 10-minute phone consultation. Sending well wishes your way!

I work together with individuals who are curious; curious about their patterns, curious about the possibility of relief, of healing, of strengthening, and of social connectedness. Life is full of overwhelming experiences that can translate to distressing levels of sadness, anxiety, anger, regret, shame, disappointment, indecision and confusion. Together, we will explore the unique features and drivers of such challenges, and in doing so, cultivate capacity for long-lasting change.

I approach my clients from a Strengths-Based lens, and use a variety of techniques informed by Polyvagal Theory and the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP). I specialize in trauma recovery, and use the technique of EMDR to address a wide variety of overwhelming life experiences.

I am keenly aware of how daunting it can be to find a new therapist. The saturation can overwhelm and leave one feeling that the right fit may be out of reach. For this reason, I offer no-cost, 10-minute phone consultations, to give you the opportunity to determine whether my style and approach best meet your needs. I look forward to hearing from you!

Anti-Racism Statement
I explicitly and publicly affirm my identity as an anti-racist mental health provider.

I am committed to anti-racism being reflected in the experiences between me and my clients.

I am committed to the continuous examination of my privilege, and to identifying, owning and correcting my personal biases.

I am committed to strategies that dismantle racism within all aspects of my professional and personal life.

My journey:

In the early 1990s, I obtained my law degree and practiced law and corporate consulting at a Big 4 firm for many years.

In my late 30s, I felt stuck. My relationship was falling apart and my career just did not feel like me. I felt unfulfilled both personally and professionally.

I did not know how to manage all of these challenges. I also didn’t want to keep burdening my friends and family and felt overwhelmed by opinions and advice. I wasn’t sure what to do next.

Through my own therapy, I learned how to navigate through a truly difficult time in my life. (Eventually, my significant other and I parted ways and I experienced first-hand the divorce process and all of its recovery phases.) I also learned to recognize what was holding me back and how I could move forward to a better, healthier and happier life.

Through this process, I recognized what my calling was: being a psychotherapist.

After a significant clinical and academic journey, I transitioned into my new profession and opened my private practice.

Looking back on my journey, I can see that all of those experiences added to my innate ability to deeply connect and empathize with my clients who face similar challenges. The tools I developed in my own process such as resilience, empowerment, and understanding patterns to make better and healthier choices translate into all life transition spaces.

These tools and qualities really made a positive difference for me, and they have helped the many others who have come to me for therapy.
