Marya Slater, LMFT, RN

Philosophy of Care

Marya Slater is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Professional Registered Nurse. Marya obtained her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from New York University and her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Her diverse educational background has enabled Marya to explore therapeutic issues through a broad lens. She maintained a private therapy practice in Manhattan for over 10 years. Marya is experienced working with individuals and couples.

Marya works from a psychodynamic perspective believing that underlying patterns of behavior can be addressed utilizing the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for change. Rather than endorsing a singular methodology, Marya also utilizes techniques from other therapeutic perspectives such as cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-­‐focused approaches to help clients achieve short-­‐term goals while working to address deeper issues in order to live more satisfying, fulfilling lives.

Subscribing to the philosophy that all people bring unique perspectives and strengths to the therapeutic process, Marya strives to help clients recognize their own strengths and build on those assets within the framework of a supportive and nurturing therapeutic relationship.

Monica Rodriguez, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Monica is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of New Jersey. We all need help or extra support at one time or another. Just as we take measures to care for our physical bodies, counseling helps care for ourselves mentally and emotionally. Monica is passionate about helping people find strength and peace as they navigate life’s transitions and challenges. She has experience coming alongside others to process feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, and grief in order to attain a sense of balance and purpose. Monica completed her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at James Madison University and earned her Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling from Columbia International University. 

Monica utilizes a holistic, strength and faith based teaching approach that values the unique experiences and perspectives of every individual she serves. She enjoys working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples. Monica listens and encourages so that clients both gain insight into unhealthy patterns and practice individualized coping skills to achieve their goals. She applies a variety of counseling approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, Christian counseling, play therapy, and expressive arts.

Monica strives to establish a caring therapeutic relationship in a safe environment free of judgement. Change happens when we are ready and choose to step towards it, from the inside out. Monica is ready to support you in this process, accepting who you are as you become who you want to be.
