Andrew Lerman, MS, LPC, NCC

I believe that the relationship between a therapist and client is the most important factor of therapy and I work to establish a partnership early on. Being vulnerable takes a lot of courage, so I try my best to create a non-judgmental space where clients can give themselves permission to comfortably share their stories.

Andrew Lerman is a psychotherapist and counselor licensed in NJ with experience working with adolescent and adult clients across various settings, including partial hospitalization programs, intensive outpatient programs, and private practice. Operating from the perspective that people are the experts in their own lives, Andrew supports clients to feel empowered and fulfilled in their process of personal growth.

Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Andrew received his Bachelor’s Degree (B.A.) in Psychology with a double major in Creative Writing from Brooklyn College. Before obtaining his Master’s Degree, Andrew spent eight months working in the Palliative Care unit of Coney Island Hospital, where he provided support to individuals suffering from complex illnesses and their families. Andrew later worked at High Focus Centers as a mental health associate. He spent three years facilitating and co-facilitating psycho-education, skills, and process groups for adolescents. He earned his Master’s Degree (M.S.) in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Monmouth University and dedicated his internships to working with various adult populations at Princeton House Behavioral Health. With experience working in individual and group capacities, Andrew has worked with clients presenting with concerns related to depression, anxiety, life transitions, LGBTQ+ concerns, relationship conflicts, self-esteem, grief/loss, and dual disorders.

In practice, Andrew incorporates person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, and culturally sensitive approaches to collaborate with his clients in helping develop insight into the tools they already possess to meet their individual needs and work toward their goals.

Post-licensure, Andrew continues to dedicate his time to personal and professional growth. In 2020, Andrew received his Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) credential. He continued his studies into 2021 where he received Level 1 advanced training in Internal Family Systems (IFS), an evidence-based, trauma-informed psychotherapy model.
