I am here to help you better manage all the curveballs life throws your way. As a licensed professional counselor I focus on promoting change and growth in individuals, couples, and families who are experiencing difficulties. I know that therapy can be a very vulnerable experience, but if you have made it this far in your search you are ready to make changes and engage in the therapuetic process.

I am currently providing online therapy sessions during the COVID-19 public health crisis. Once things have improved I will be offering in office sessions in Cranford, NJ.

Having worked in Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) and traditional addiction treatment, our Founder and Director, Katherine Casey, saw firsthand the benefits of holistic care beyond traditional talk therapy including somatic and arts therapies, providing family support, collaborating with medical providers, and referrals to community resources. Perhaps most importantly, she recognized the value of using personal insight and experiences to help guide clients on their paths to wellness and self-discovery. Today, these lessons are the principles that guide our practice.

At The Root Therapy NYC clients have the opportunity to develop insight and gain new skills while feeling empowered in the therapeutic process. Clients play a key role in developing goals and evaluating progress in the therapeutic process – they decide what they want to get out of therapy and when they have achieved their goals.

The Root Therapy NYC is staffed with therapists with a range of clinical training and expertise to help guide clients through a change process using approaches that research has proven effective. Each therapist is an individual who reflects the group’s guiding principles through ongoing clinical supervision, continuing education, community engagement, and self-care.

Sometimes even the strongest people need support to work through challenges. When you’ve come to the point where you welcome help to manage life’s stressors, therapy can feel like the most hopeful and positive time of your week.

Finding the right therapist can be uncomfortable and extremely overwhelming. I believe the most important factor in treatment is that you feel comfortable with your therapist. I welcome the opportunity to get to know you better and offer a free 15-20 minute phone consultation to see if I can be of help. If we don’t seem like the best fit, I will do my best to help you find the right therapist for you. Feel free to reach out to schedule a phone consultation, I really look forward to meeting you.

If you are reading this, you have probably already tried ways of "figuring it out" on your own. You're ready to make some much-needed changes, but have been stuck for a while and not sure how to get through whatever it is that is keeping you from moving forward. I am so glad that you are here, reading about the work that I am privileged to do with you, to help you achieve the life that you want and deserve.

During our work together, you can expect to experience curiosity, warmth and lots of information that will help you to fill in the missing pieces- why you've been stuck, overtly or secretly lacking self-confidence or experiencing anxiety to an extent that negatively impacts your quality of life.

I am curious about you and your life. I want to know what has worked for you in the past and what is no longer working for you now. I work with you as the individual that you are and integrate my skills to best fit your particular needs. My treatment approach is unique – because you are, too.

It is important that you feel comfortable in taking that first step with me to find a therapist and for that reason, I offer an initial free consultation. I’ve been providing online session before online sessions were even “a thing” because I want to ensure that you have access to your session from wherever you might be. Are you ready? Looking forward!
