About Emily Austein, LCSW

top therapist, best therapist therapist bergen county ridgewood nj, anxiety, eating disorder, relationship issues, depression, cbt, mindfulness, mental health

I am a  licensed clinical social worker and truly love what I do. I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings and currently see individuals and couples in private practice in Ridgewood, New Jersey. I also have conducted many local lectures especially on the topic of social media and it’s impact on self-esteem, relationships and overall mental health. 

I always ask my patients one thing before we start our sessions: "Are you always thinking about the past or future, not the present?" Maybe you’re concerned because something that happened to you in the past is continuing to affect you today.These are the ways we cope with issues, by always being elsewhere. The problem is, when our minds are always in another place, it's very hard to enjoy the present and the people and experiences we are having in that moment. Take a moment to be present, and make a decision to make a positive change for you. You no longer have to suffer with this burden alone...help is here.
