Professional statement

Kristina Cofone is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and owner of Hope, Healing & Happiness Counseling Services. She specializes in working with adolescents and young adults who are struggling with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and difficult life transitions. Kristina utilizes evidence-based models and her clinical training to support her clients in achieving their goals.

Kristina’s approach to treatment is guided by her Cognitive Behavioral training background. However, she works to incorporate other treatment modalities which include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). Kristina strives to helps her clients better understand and accept their struggles so they can move forward in the change process. She works to help clients establish a positive self-talk that is compassionate in nature. This is often key in clients developing the confidence they need to believe change is possible and their goals are achievable.

Kristina brings with her over 10 years of clinical experience. She received her Masters in Social Work from Rutgers University and her Bachelors in Social Work from Providence College. She is currently enrolled in a two year post-graduate training program at the Center for Study of Anorexia and Bulimia through the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy.


Message to clients

I strive to provide a welcoming, relaxed and safe environment where you can feel understood and accepted. My training and years of clinical experience have afforded me the opportunity to develop and sharpen my skillset in order to best support you and your needs.

Together we will work to identify and explore themes that occur in your life. This will assist us in making connections that lead to deeper clarity and insight. With this information we will work to identify meaningful goals and enable you to reach your full potential. I aim to provide you with the tools, skills and mindset needed in order to achieve your goals.

I believe every person has a unique story to tell and I would like to support them along their journey. I provide structured, goal-oriented sessions which allow you to build the foundation you need to achieve success.  I work with clients in a collaborative setting, tailoring and modifying my approach to meet the particular needs of each individual.
