Marilyn Rukaj, MHC-LP
My therapeutic style is compassionate, non-judgmental, and provides a safe and open space so that you may express yourself freely. I work with adults of all ages who are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, career issues, life transitions, interpersonal issues, low self-esteem, couples’ issues, grief, and cultural and identity concerns. Together, we can work towards improving your quality of life as we identify and process the areas of your life that are causing you pain or discomfort. Then, we will work on developing and utilizing new skills to create a positive future for you.
I view each relationship as a unique interaction of two individuals and will tailor the therapeutic techniques I use depending on your needs. I utilize an integrative approach that is comprised of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). This eclectic approach provides you with a personalized treatment plan tailored to you as an individual. This enables you to feel understood, grounded, empowered, and in control of yourself. I have a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Fordham University.
Finding the right therapist can be challenging, but taking the first step towards helping yourself is empowering. To get started, call or email to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation or book your first visit.
