Collin Maier, LPC, ACS, Clinical supervisor
I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of New Jersey with a focus on developing practical skills to assist clients with their mental health needs through a warm, compassionate, supportive and empowering approach. I understand that with each client, needs differ, but the goal of finding our true, authentic selves is universal. As an LPC, I assist people of all walks of life find stability, support, and hope for the future through an affirmative lens – helping clients who struggle to find acceptance among their communities and within themselves.
I operate from the perspective that everyone has something they want to achieve, something to attain, and everyone wants to believe growth is possible. Through the development of practical coping skills for depressive rumination using evidence-based therapy models, relaxation and mindfulness techniques for grief/trauma/anxiety, integrating physical exercise and nutrition, motivational interviewing, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, narrative/expressive/creative therapy techniques, and various others, my goal is to tailor the approach to the clients’ needs using counseling training and expertise as guide.
