Professional statement

Eli Hilman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) located in Forked River, New Jersey with expertise in working with clients on topics related to anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. Eli also specializes in personality disorders, particularly Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), as well as self-esteem related issues.

During therapy sessions, Eli adopts a psychodynamic approach, guiding clients to explore their deeply ingrained beliefs and how these beliefs influence their current interactions with others. As they learn more about themselves through this introspection, clients gain a foundation for which subsequent values explore and identity development can be done. Eli also tailors his approach to each individual, understanding that each client is unique and brings their own goals to the therapeutic process. To this end, he provides both long-term psychodynamic treatment and intensive short-term treatment options for his adult and child clients, depending on their therapeutic needs.

Since obtaining his Master’s of Social Work degree in 2011, Eli has worked across a number of treatment settings, including an outpatient behavioral health clinic and an intensive family counseling program. Presently, Eli is excited to welcome individuals, couples, and families to his private practice located on the coast of New Jersey.
