Licensed Professional Counseler

Welcome to Journey of Mind

My goal is to take your mind on a journey that is designed specifically for you. 
We are all on our own journeys and it is only natural that we will face hard times. If you are noticing an increase in worries, low moods, intrusive thoughts, or a change in your routine that is causing stress. I can support you. If you are having relationship issues, difficulty communicating, or family conflict. I would like to provide you with the clinical support that will guide you to realizing your full potential, to use more helpful thoughts, healthier behaviors, and improve in areas that you may be struggling.
Here at Journey Of Mind Counseling you will find a therapist eager for you to reach your treatment goals, truth-telling, direct, and tough-love counseling. There are no limits or expectations of your success and progress, because this is your journey. If you are willing to make time and put in the energy, you will find yourself more content, more disciplined, and living an honest life you find worthy of celebrating.

About Denyta

MA: Clinical Psychology, Specialization; Children and Adolescents, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Chicago, IL
BA: Psychology, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ‍
My name is Denyta Girard, I am currently a provider in New Jersey. I have been practicing as a licensed clinician since 2014, and providing counseling support since 2011. 
I have been certified in mental health screening and trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I practice using solution-focused, strength-based, integrative psycho-therapy for children, adolescents and families who seek assistance.
I practice based on the philosophy to “Take things one step at a time. Slow progress is still progress.” You will be encouraged to be bold, under the proven assumption that the patients know themselves and their families best. My hope for all patients is that they use the tools and skills learned from each session to improve their experience in the world. It was the support of school counselors who opened my eyes to the field of Clinical Counseling and it is that same selfless support that I hope to share with and lift those who are facing a challenging time in their lives. Previous patients appreciate the comprehensive approach to treatment and the dedication to their overall wellness.
i saw your beauty from tHE beginning, was just waiting on you to see it tOo. –denyta g.

Denyta is the absolute best. She makes me feel comfortable and guides me through my life problems in a way that I feel motivated to enjoy my life. I felt this sense of happiness I haven’t had in a long time and that’s because of Denyta's help.

There are no word to describe how wonderful Dr Girard is. She is welcoming, understanding, caring yet discusses the hard topics and deals appropriately with my daughter. She is an amazing doctor who has been a great help to my family.

We love Denyta. She is by far one of the best therapists. Denyta carefully listens and takes notes, gives detailed suggestions and feedback along with methods on how to achieve the goals my son is working towards. She mixes humor in which is so helpful since at times topics can add to the stress level.
You must be intentional before it feels natural. –denyta g.
