Phyllis Nehra

(MS, LPC)

About Me

Hi, my name is Phyllis. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in New Jersey and have over 15 years of experience working with people in different capacities, including social work and as a therapist. I have a graduate degree in Human Services with a Specialization in Marital, Couple, and Family Therapy. I tend to view people and their concerns in context of their relationships with others. I enjoy helping clients find their voices and to learn skills they can use to get their needs met. I went into this field to help couples and families communicate more effectively. My approach to therapy is individualistic, positive, and strengths-based. I know it can be intimidating to be vulnerable with a new therapist and will do my best to ensure you feel safe while working toward your goals at a pace that feels comfortable to you.

I really appreciate Phyllis. She was an excellent counselor for my husband and I through our marriage counseling. She was very understanding, patient, and helped us communicate better. If we need to return we will definitely request to be with her again.

It is very easy to talk to Phyllis. I’ve had therapists in the past where it was uncomfortable fully confiding in them, as I felt judged and intimidated. It feels like I’m talking to a friend with her, but it is still professional.
