Abaigeal Doherty
Self Pay Rate: $99

Abaigeal Doherty, Supervisee in Social Work

Philosophy of Care

Abaigeal Doherty is a Licensed Social Worker in New Jersey who wholeheartedly believes in trauma-informed and responsive care. The range of her clinical experience includes supporting clients through in-home therapy, domestic and sexual violence advocacy, and also school social work. There are many aspects of daily life that may prompt an individual to seek therapeutic support and Abaigeal is prepared to hold space for that journey. Assisting children, adults, and families to acknowledge and process any challenging experiences is especially important to Abaigeal. She is known to incorporate creative modalities into a session and is also passionate about internal growth and healing.

A combination of her creative expression and community organizing skills inspired Abaigeal to relocate to the Northeast to pursue a graduate degree in social work. While there, she engaged in racial justice efforts, advocacy work, and anti-racism education. Abaigeal developed a passion for racial identity development which she asserts is necessary, especially as a clinician today.

Abaigeal believes that each person knows their own way to healing. A therapist’s role is to witness, hold, and guide. Her awareness that much more can be happening in a client’s life besides what occurs in the therapy room is crucial. Focusing on grounding strategies while exploring how our experiences impact our identity formation in the world, is a central part of Abaigeal’s approach to building rapport with clients. If you’ve ever wondered if your therapist can understand how it feels to open up old stories and wounds, she does! Therapy is a process, one with which she is excited to support you.

Greg Miller, LPC

Philosophy of Care

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.” – Dale Carnegie

“No hope at all.” A phrase that most (if not all) of us have thought to ourselves or spoken out loud at least once in our lives. Losing a job. Ending a marriage. That ultimate moment of dread when we feel like giving up or believe that all hope is lost. In that moment, a person can use a helping hand to guide and help them find the strength to move forward or clarity to accept what is out of their control.

My name is Greg Miller and I hope that I can be that person for you. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 10 years of combined social work experience, working with adolescents, adults, and families within multiple settings and levels of care. Some of my specialties include mood disorders, anxiety, substance use/process addictions, and personality disorders, among other adjustment issues and long-standing mental health challenges.

I incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities, including evidence-based practices such as CBT, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing, with an empathetic, compassionate, and easygoing style that focuses on promoting healthy personal growth. I believe that everyone has a unique story to tell and I look forward to helping you write yours.
