Asking For Help is a sign of strength.

If you are looking for guidance with anxiety, fears, relationship and marriage counseling, or stress, it takes courage to ask for help. Admitting you can’t do everything on your own, is the first step toward achieving wellness in a fast paced, demanding world.

The good news is, asking for help gets easier with a little practice. The way in which we cope in the world is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Asking for help, and obtaining a fresh perspective is often the first and most profound step toward developing the mental muscle needed to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve more successes.

The Benefits of Therapy

Psychotherapy can be an effective tool in providing you with the necessary support and training to overcome the challenges you face. By seeking therapy, you are taking responsibility and action to change what no longer works in your life. Many studies have shown throughout the years that psychotherapy is an effective form of treating and managing mental illnesses and other emotional disorders.

As an experienced licensed clinical social worker in Colorado and New Jersey, it is my honor to assist you in exploring your core issues and move toward a healthy, fulfilling life. Utilizing a variety of approaches including Behavioral, Cognitive/Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, Psychoeducational, Psychosocial, I will work with you to create a treatment plan that is customized to meet your unique circumstances.

With honesty and compassion I will work with you to create an open channel of communication. The goal of our therapy sessions together, will be to help you develop the mental fortitude needed to lead a successful life. Additionally, we will work on the skill of self-compassion, which will allow you to move more easily through difficult times in the future, as wells as become a more productive and happier person.

“Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.”

Shoshanna is the most open and accommodating therapist I've ever had. I have had a few therapists over the last couple of years. She made me feel extremely comfortable as sometimes therapy can be overwhelming. She helped me prioritize what I wanted to work on so that I was less overwhelmed with the issues I was experiencing. I feel like she really listened to me and understood me without ever being condescending. She worked with me on developing strategies for managing my anxiety, among other things, and then helped me learn to recognize when to use them and how to implement them in the moment. I felt very comfortable with her plan to help me and it is working! I would recommend her to anyone.

I have been working with Shoshana Ort for just over a year. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, but kind and compassionate. I always feel heard and she has given me excellent feedback, helping me to see and understand myself differently and positively. Having experienced childhood trauma that has affected me emotionally my entire life, I have had self-esteem, self=love issues which has had an adverse effect on me. Seeing myself positively, learning new skills, and continued therapy has given me a better life, one that will continue on a peaceful path.

Shoshana met me as a client in a very difficult time in my life and has completely turned my life around. Shoshana listens without judgment and provides the tools that work for YOU. My impossibles started to become possible with Shoshana as my therapist.

Shoshana has been super helpful as I've been adjusting to my new life in college! She's always a grounding presence for me. I feel like I've made a lot of progress since I started seeing her.

Shoshana was amazing helping me through my postpartum depression and pandemic anxiety. I feel better than I have at any other time in my adult life and feel like I now have the tools to keep it going.
