David Platt, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Hello! I hope you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy! Thank you for taking the courageous first step in your consideration to participate in counseling!

I received my Master of Education degree from Rutgers University-New Brunswick in 2015. In addition to receiving my K-12 School Counselor certification, I achieved my Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in New Jersey and am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I have experience working with elementary, middle and high school students to help solve problems and address goals in the educational, career and social-emotional domains. In addition,

I have vocational experience facilitating psycho educational groups in topics such as: depression, anxiety, stress management, anger management, grief/loss, problem solving, conflict resolution and life skills. Moreover, I have years of experience facilitating individual, couples/marriage and family counseling sessions with individuals of varied backgrounds and having diverse mental health disorders.

While I have experience providing counseling services using varied theoretical frameworks, such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and Person-Centered Therapy, I utilize the ones that will be most beneficial in addressing my clients’ mental health issues and individual goals. I will always strive to provide a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment. I look forward to helping you address your needs and achieve your goals!

Melissa Albano, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

I realize how important it is to find a counselor that you can connect with to see progress during challenging times. It is important to establish a healthy relationship to move forward with managing changes in your life. I would like to provide some information about myself and my counseling style, to determine if we would be a good fit.

I have over 20 years of social work experience. I received my master’s degree from New York University in 2000. I was employed 18 years as a case manager for a large health system. My experience working with clients has been managing cases related to anxiety, panic attacks, depression and crisis intervention, substance abuse and domestic violence. I have also worked with chronically ill clients and their families to better cope with their ongoing needs. I am passionate and experienced with counseling related to the LGBTQ+ community.

My practice style is upfront and honest. I feel establishing a strong working relationship with a client to work effectively to manage concerns. I am compassionate and easy to engage with. We will work together to determine the best approach to address your current concerns. I tailor our session to the counseling style that will best work with you. Reaching out to seek therapy is a huge step in making life changes. I look forward to working together.
