Professional statement

Nellie Vial is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Florham Park, New Jersey. She has deep expertise in treating depression and anxiety, which often arise around painful life transitions. Many of her clients come to therapy in response to changes such as divorce or breakups, job transitions, a recent loss, or transitions in parenthood, when added stressors can contribute to low mood and anxious thoughts.

Nellie’s approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Through a skills-based approach, she is able to help clients better track their mood, learning to identify how patterns of thought, emotion, and behavior are interconnected. By monitoring these changes over time, Nellie is able to support clients in recognizing their triggers and choosing how to respond. She emphasizes the strength of the therapeutic relationship to create an empathetic environment that allows clients to feel authentically understood and validated. 

Nellie welcomes clients from diverse racial and cultural backgrounds and offers therapy sessions in Arabic. Her practice is open to adults across the lifespan, as well as adolescents, and she also welcomes clients who are seeking couples or family counseling. 

Message to clients

I know it is important to find someone you feel comfortable with to share your thoughts and feelings. More importantly I understand how much we desire validation, empathy and understanding from a therapist. There are no judgements here. I will work to listen more and talk less so that I can better understand the guidance and help you would like me to provide for you.
