"The greatest sources of our suffering are the lies we tell ourselves"
Bessel A. van der Kolk
I’m Tricia Maliszewski LPC, a New Jersey based licensed therapist. I currently conduct services via telehealth through my private practice. Each client is granted a specialized and focused approach regarding their reasons for seeking therapy. I specialize in trauma, substance abuse, mood disorders, and first responder treatment.
Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be? Are you willing to give yourself the chance to confront your pain with curiosity and compassion vs. judgement and shame? I believe in empowering clients to work on overcoming barriers, reconnecting with their authentic self, healing, and change.
I utilize an eclectic approach (favoring trauma informed care and psychanalysis) that cater to the individual needs of each client. This may include addressing and overcoming emotional, psychological, and behavioral issues, gain insight into thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, improve relationships, increase resiliency, and explore personal growth and development.
FIRST RESPONDER TREATMENT
First responders are chronically exposed to stress and traumatic scenes in the line of duty, on a daily basis. They are not only challenged to meet the demands of their occupation, but also the negative criticisms, views, and stigma of their occupation. Therapy can be the space where you no longer have to suffer in silence.
SUBSTANCE ABUSE, TRAUMA, AND MOOD DISORDERS
I like to incorporate psychoeducation in therapy sessions; teaching individuals how to better manage their stress by utilizing coping skills to navigate through life stressors.
