Are you struggling with work or family stress, a personal loss, depressed mood, or anxiety? Does a past traumatic experience continue to haunt you? Are you abusing pain killers, booze, or other drugs and just can't seem to stop? If so, I can help. You will find me friendly, gentle, caring, and result-oriented. I've helped other adults, teens, and children overcome depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse...and can do the same for you. If you are ready for peace and healing in your life, call me anytime at 908.461.5829. I accept most major insurance.
Traumatic experiences--physical or sexual abuse, military combat, natural or man-made disasters, or other horrific events--produce long-term effects including flashbacks, panic, depression, anger, guilt, and substance abuse. I employ Eye Movement Densitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)--a proven, neuropsychological intervention--to help you overcome effects of psychological trauma.
I believe that all persons, whatever their circumstances, have an inner spark, a desire to overcome whatever obstacles they face and achieve personal growth. My role is to provide help, support, and guidance in your journey of self-discovery.

James Genovese's Groups

Workplace Stress

Hard economic times have led to increased stress in the workplace: fear of job loss, stagnant or reduced pay, and increased workloads. The purpose of this group is to give you a supportive environment in which you can feel free to share your feelings of uncertainty, frustration, and discouragement with others who face the same challenges. We'll also practice effective stress coping techniques. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable. Group size is limited to 12 people maximum. Groups begin as soon as the rosters fill up.
