About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Therapist licensed in New Jersey with over 7 years of experience working as a Psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, teen issues and couple/relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. It's Your Time .

I look forward to working with you!

Tainesha has provided such clarity to patterns within our relationship and we look forward to continuing the work of replacing those with healthier patterns.

Tainesha is kind, caring, yet honest & helpful. She supports your feelings but tells you exactly what you need to hear in order to grow. She makes me feel comfortable, confident, & strong. It’s like talking to a friend!!! I love Tainesha and would recommend her to absolutely anyone <3
