Owner / Lead Therapist

Veronica O'Brien | MS, LPC, NCC, CSTIP, CIMHP

I'm Veronica and I specialize in guiding clients through a holistic approach to Counseling that integrates various elements from the healing professions, such as psychotherapy, spiritual direction, coaching, and nutritional psychoeducation (not to be confused with being a nutritionist-I am not). I am a seasoned psychotherapist, coach, and mindful faith-based teacher. 

My work is deeply influenced by an understanding that humans are extremely resilient and most of us will grow through the difficult experiences that life throws at us. With over 20 years of experience in direct service to individuals, couples, families and groups, I am now exclusively dedicated to faith-based and emotional healing and sharing insights (when appropriate) from my own direct experiences. I collaborate with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your psychological, physical and spiritual needs. You are a complicated and wonderful human and it is important that you work with someone who treats all of you. I am trained to effectively integrate several state-of-the-art treatments into psychotherapy including brainspotting, Trauma-Focused CBT, Polyvagal, pragmatic psychodynamic therapy, mindful practices, faith-based practices and exposure and response prevention to empower you to live your best life. Referred to as the “tough-love therapist,” I balance my faith based principles with critical and psychological exploration. An ambivert, former missionary, paralegal, teacher and human resource manager, advocate and self-proclaimed pseudo-researcher, I am passionate about providing excellent counseling via telehealth.

 In 2024, I began my online private-practice, but I am not a novice to online work. In 2010, my then company assisted us in working from home, and due to chronic health issues, I found that working from home was a way to help me manage work-life balance. I have been working in telehealth since 2020 and I maintain an ethical and effective practice to facilitate exceptional care. Alongside this, I am a Life-Coach and provide services as an adjunct to Counseling. I am passionate about empowering busy individuals & couples to transform pain into purpose.

Beyond my professional identity, I am a naturalized American Citizen, a Caribbean immigrant with a passion for multicultural experiences, cooking and traveling. I am a person with diverse cultural and ethnic heritage that allows me a diverse perspective. I have lived in New Jersey for over 20 years and consider myself a New Jerseyan with Caribbean flava. I am a devoted wife, cat mother, a friend, daughter, and sister. My surroundings reflect my love for beautiful things that express my heart. I enjoy exploring cultures, beliefs, reading, writing, poetry, good food, and going to church. I love singing, although I do so exclusively in private and I love to laugh. I enjoy historic experiences and traveling. I incorporate essential oil psychoeducation, somatic techniques, humor, lessons from movies and sitcoms and many other interventions into my counseling practice to empower you to live your best life.
