Tom J Kersting, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Ridgewood
"What you think about you bring about." Think about this quote for a moment. It describes who you are. If you want to change your feelings and behaviors you must first change the way you think. Therapy begins the moment you pick-up the phone. It is my priority to personally respond to all inquiries and first time appointments. My number one goal is to help you make lasting changes in your life and to unleash your inner strength.
I am a solution focused therapist and help people from all walks of life. My goal is to get everyone of my clients to start thinking differently, feeling differently and acting differently. Essentially, I will challenge you to be the best you can be.
In addition to providing therapy in my private practice I am well-known in the media as I am a regular, contributing expert for Fox News and other television networks. I have also hosted numerous family related television series' for major cable networks.
