Meet Felicia:

Felicia Lynne Herrero, LSW graduated Cum Laude from Kean University with a BA in Psychology in 2011. She went on to graduate Cum Laude from Rutgers University with a Masters Degree in Social Work in 2013. During her time at Rutgers her focus was women and children’s studies.  While at Rutgers she completed field experience with elementary and high school students who were experiencing high risk behaviors and mental health struggles. 

Once graduating Rutgers, Felicia went on to start her clinical career helping families in the hospital setting. With this experience she provided grief counseling and crisis intervention. It was rewarding to support families during a time of acute crisis. However, Felicia felt a desire to support families on a continual framework. 

In 2020 Felicia transitioned to working as a clinical school therapist where she remains full time. She spends her days doing what she enjoys most, which is helping youth that are experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, school avoidance, low academic achievement, social issues, grief, and family discord. She is well versed in individual, group, family, and parent support group therapy. 

Felicia remains passionate about reaching more adolescents and young adults while supporting their families. Her goal is to help them navigate mental health struggles through evidence based, strengths based focus, while using DBT & CBT models. Felicia also feels teaching youth about advocacy & education around mental health is crucial to accessing treatment and continuity of care. 

Felicia’s goal is to help children, adolescents, and young adults build a foundation around their mental health into adulthood and create a full life while using therapeutic tools to experience & manage a full life without fear. 

Her favorite quote is “Never trust your fears, they don’t know your strength.” Athena Singh 

She is a proud mother of two children. 

A Word from Felicia:

"Growing up the child of two parents who were first generation immigrants, I struggled first hand with cultural shifts, norms, expectations, and relating to my peers. It wasn’t until young adulthood when I became immersed into psycho education after my own tribulations that I began to learn the tools I needed to pave my own way. This lead me to being passionate about mental health advocacy, awareness, education, and ultimately my life’s purpose; to help others. When I am working with clients my intention is to be an unbiased space where they feel seen, comfortable, and validated. My passion is providing clients the tools and knowledge they deserve to advocate for themselves and begin a journey of healing. My approach is empathetic, research driven, strengths based, while using DBT and CBT models. My asset as a therapist is understanding and meeting clients where they are at. Especially in adolescence, I understand how daunting (and outright scary) it can be as a teenager or young adult, to access therapeutic services. My therapeutic space is free of judgement and I strive to provide a setting where clients can feel safe to return."
