My name is Alexandra Nicotra and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in NJ and Florida through telehealth services.
Licensed Professional Counselor in New Jersey
I utilize a DBT approach to manage intensity and frequency of anxiety through teaching distress tolerance skills. CBT approach includes challenging negative and over thinking , coping skills, and relaxation techniques.
Behavioral activation and increasing positive experiences through building a social network, engaging in meaningful activities, establishing boundaries and setting limits all aid in the management of symptoms of depression. We will work to improve motivation, self love, and connections with self and others . We will decrease conflict, negative thinking patterns, and challenges with sleeping and eating.
We will use a combination of DBT, CBT, and Mindfulness practices to reduce the intensity and frequency of urges to self harm and suicidal thoughts.
