Meet Our Team

A Word From Our Founder...

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for considering our team to collaborate with you or your loved one's care. From personal experience, I'm well aware that it's not just the training of the clinician you work with, but the relationship between client and therapist that has the opportunity to move mountains. With this in mind, NJ Recovery & Wellness has made intentional decisions in whom we invite to join our team. Our licensed and credentialed professionals bring with them evidence-based skills and clinical practice along with an empathetic, client-centered stance.

Take a moment to check out our team... Get to know them. If you decide to call and inquire about how we may be a good fit for you, we may very well discuss pairing you with a specific team member whose skill and disposition may be the right fit for you. The right fit can make all the difference. 

Be well. Be RAW.
