John Berkowitz, LCSW, MSEd, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Livingston
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed School Psychologist. I have extensive postgraduate training in areas including the treatment of anxiety,depression, children and adults with ADHD/LD and their families, play therapy, addictions, therapy with troubled teens, and recovery from trauma. I provide services to clients with a wide range of backgrounds.I often draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Psychotherapy (GP), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). For couples work I'm trained in Imago Therapy and Gottman therapy. Brief solution focused therapy (8 to 20 sessions) is often sufficient to help clients resolve specific issues.
My style is warm, respectful and interactive. I will work with you to understand your strengths and challenges, and help you figure out new ways of understanding and interacting with your world. If it seems useful, we can look together at your past, helping you gain insight into yourself, your behavior, and your relationships.
We can work individually or as a family unit. Understanding family dynamics, learning healthier styles of communication and breaking old patterns are key to your healing. I am interested in helping you find new and effective ways to manage your life, and partnering with you to work toward happier tomorrows.
