The opening of Family Healing Center in Livingston is the culmination of a dream of its three principals. They recognized that solo practices, which can make a difference for clients, are often constrained by limited therapeutic resources. Rather, by establishing the Family Healing Center, each sought to help clients, as the mission statement says: to “find answers, relief, and ways to cope with the challenges of life.” These are accomplished through compassionate individual therapy, supportive group counseling and mental health education.
Bill Powell, with more than 50 years’ experience as a licensed clinical therapist, has a wealth of experience working with marriage and committed couples, helping them to resolve conflict, rebuild trust and intimacy and to improve communication habits. He has always wanted to open a center where he could see families’ lives transformed.
John Berkowitz has been a licensed clinical therapist for more than 20 years and in private practice for 15 years. He brings a wide range of experience and therapeutic approaches to his clients, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Psychology (GP) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). With his extensive training and his warm and compassionate approach, Berkowitz says he can help families and individuals find new ways to manage their lives and partnering with them to live brighter tomorrows.
Chief Executive Officer Malik Carey, the third principal, merged his business experience and his earnest passion for wellness to help create a center for families where they could come to find a safe haven. The Family Healing Center is warm and inviting. From the moment one walks in the door, he or she will feel welcomed.
The Family Healing Center offers individual and group therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. Family counseling is available for married and committed partners, parenting, conflict resolution and divorce mediation. If there are marriage or family issues, eating disorders, addictions to sex, pornography, gambling or the internet, trauma, PTSD, alcohol or substance abuse or grief/loss, the staff at Family Healing Center has the skills needed to provide the highest quality professional care.
Affiliated with RWJ Barnabas Health, Family Healing Center has appointments available seven days and evenings a week and accepts every major health insurance and Medicare.
