About Me

By visiting my profile you just made the first and most important step to a better day for yourself.  I am Gina Coffaro and have over twenty years of Counseling experience.  Individual, adolescent mental health focusing on developing the coping skills to make the fulfilling life you deserve for yourself.  I graduated from Drew University with a Doctoral Degree specializing in school and family counseling. I have worked in school systems and private practice.

As a Licensed Professional and School Counselor, I have experience working with students and families to overcome school and adolescent related issues. As a teacher and school leader, I see first hand the pressures students are under in schools today. Between social media, academic, and social pressures, let me be your life coach to provide caring and supportive counseling.  

My passion is to help teenagers achieve joy and success as they define it, in developing fulfilling relationships, expressing and uncovering hidden talents and creating comfort and meaning to their school experience and work. Whether dealing with issues of school anxiety, college transition, social confidence, my approach is fully centered around individualized strength based counseling.  By listening, supporting and guiding, I will be there to assist you in unlocking your potential and happiness. So frequently worry and anxiety can prevent us from achieving personal and professional success. 

My areas of focus are diverse because the real focus is you. We all have a story to tell. A journey that needs someone to walk beside them.  Tell me your story and let me walk beside you providing you that supportive counseling care so you can be the best version of yourself.

I have only been seeing Dr Coffaro for a short time but I can say I am very pleased. I feel comfortable with her, she is kind, gentle and a good listener. I know she has my best interest in mind and is gently helping me work through some very difficult matters. She is respectful and supportive of my beliefs and I know she is only a text or phone call away.
