I believe all people deserve to feel their best and realize their true potential. The individuals, couples, and families that come to me for therapy are down and out, riddled with anxiety and conflict, and looking for a new lease on life. Using my years of experience and training and a variety of specialized skills and techniques, I help each of my clients find the strength within to overcome these personal challenges. I partner with my clients to remove the obstacles to happiness and inner peace and to rediscover the lives they want to live and to live them vibrantly! I build strong therapeutic relationships with my clients and this relationship serves as the springboard for positive change.
I love to learn about people's stories and what makes them tick. Helping my clients through their struggles and seeing them realize their true potential is very gratifying. I especially like it when I see angry, wounded, and conflict-ridden individuals, couples, and families begin to enjoy healthier and more satisfying intimacy in their relationships once again.
Mike is an insightful and compassionate therapist. I am grateful for the care and guidance he has given me as I navigate the challenging and joyful moments of life. Thank you Mike!
I have been a patient of Mike Guglielmino now for maybe 10 years. During this time, I have always felt he was professional with a keen sense of how to help me understand what I was really feeling. He always contributed to my overall well-being by encouraging me to self-change. I feel my time with him has been very productive since I have been able to overcome many difficult issues within this time. He is concerned with my growing process with each visit. I would highly recommend Mr. Guglielmino as a therapist.
I've been working with Mike (individual & group therapy) for over 10 years...he has calmly helped me navigate some of the most difficult transitions in my life. He has an uncanny ability to make you feel safe and yet capable of taking on all that is in front of you, even when it seems impossible. He doesn't push you as much as he supports your growth. I have always felt understood and celebrated, which is what makes him so good at his chosen profession! He is committed to your growth. You are in it together, but he ends up coaxing YOU out, week after week. I have also greatly benefited from group therapy work with Mike. He is keenly aware that much growth occurs while interacting with others vs one on one with a therapist. Mike's well-rounded approach to therapy can be beneficial for many people. He is unique in the world of private practice therapists...he wants to see you move forward and take on new challenges. Mike Guglielmino is an excellent partner in therapy. I cannot recommend him highly enough. You will be in good hands:-)
I like to screen prospective clients by phone to determine whether I am the right therapist for the kinds of issues a client, couple, or family bring to me. I normally am able to provide an appointment for an assessment within a few days of a phone screening. After I complete a thorough assessment, which can take up to 3 visits, I collaborate with my clients in making a treatment plan, or I connect my clients with needed services.
I have an MSW from Rutgers and am licensed as a clinical social worker in New Jersey. I participate in ongoing professional training to remain current with best practices. I am a certified hypnotherapistand and have recently attended many workshops and trainings on trauma-focused therapy.
I am in several insurance networks (Blue Cross/Blue Shield) and Cigna. If I am not in a particular insurance network, I am open to single case agreements to keep costs manageable. I provide sliding scale fees for those without insurance, or tise who prefer not to use their insurance.
My sister experienced a mental health crisis when I was in college and this stimulated my interest in the field. My first job was in a a day treatment program for people with mental illness and substance abuse problems. There I learned I had a natural affinity for helping others.
