Attentive Psychotherapy & Counseling Center


COVID-19 Update:  We are here to help you through the uncharted waters of the current national health emergency.  We can help you from the comfort of your own home.  We offer online sessions and are accepting new clients.  Online sessions are conducted over a HIPAA compliant platform.  You can use a computer, tablet, or phone.  Many clients prefer the ease of online sessions.

Anxiety and depression can be debilitating.  You may be feeling overwhelmed, nervous, worried, withdrawn, or lonely.  Sleeping has become an issue.  Your appetite has changed.  Suddenly, you do not enjoy things you used to love.  Something has changed and you are struggling.  Sometimes these changes are easy to identify and other times they are gradual and build-up over time.  You do not have to face this alone.  There comes a time when help is needed from a licensed professional to cope with many of life’s challenges. We are a team of licensed mental health professionals located in Hackettstown, and we are here to support you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.

Family Therapy

A Happier, Healthier Family

"Families are the compass that guides us. They are the inspiration to reach great heights, and our comfort when we occasionally falter." - Brad Henry

In family therapy we work together to communicate and explore our thoughts and feelings.  It is a sacred time where there are no distractions and families can focus on each other.  We work on solving everyday conflicts and discuss stressful events, which impact the entire family.  It is a place where all family members have a voice.

Clinical Supervision

Here For You

"We think we listen, but rarely do we listen with real understanding and true empathy.  Yet listening of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know." - Carl Rogers


Clinical supervision is provided for those seeking independent licensure in the state of New Jersey.  Ethics, culturally competent practice, self-care, and evidence based practice are the foundation of clinical supervision.  Guidance is provided in a confidential and supportive setting.  This is an exciting time where you learn how to apply everything you learned in books and classes to practice.
