Joel Levine

Marriage and Family Counselor, Divorce Mediator and Supervisor

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe in helping you resolve the stress and conflict that interferes with your relationships. When left untreated it eventually becomes a pattern that evolves over several generations. Through therapy I will help you create meaningful connection. We will work together to understand how you can create balance in your life and promote healthy respect for yourself and for others, leading to more satisfactory relationships. 

I have spent my career in commitment to education, best practices and holistic treatment of individuals and families. I have many licenses and certifications (LCSW, LPC, LCADC, LMFT, SAP, ACS, CCS) because I believe in providing the highest care. I also have a passion for teaching which includes being a College Professor of graduate students at multiple local universities, presenting on various topics for professionals seeking continuing education and acting as a supervisor for those seeking licensure or guidance within their practice. I currently serve as the President of the NJ Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.

Brielle Layden

MS Marriage and Family Therapist

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, it is my sincere belief that problems do not arise spontaneously but are instead, influenced by the behaviors, opinions and connections with those around us, even those who are no longer living. It is my intention to create honest and trusting relationships with each of my clients so that healthier relationships can be created and new solutions can be learned.

During my career I have worked with clients struggling with co-occurring disorders as a counselor in East Orange, NJ. As part of the NJ Counseling, Training and Consultation Group, I am open to working with individuals, couples as well as families. Regardless of the challenges you are facing now, I am committed to helping you discover a new sense of health, happiness and strength.
