About Adam Eltouny, MA, LAC, NCC

Education and Experience: I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Seton Hall University in 2017 and my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Caldwell University in 2020. I am currently a Licensed Associate Counselor (LAC) in New Jersey and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). I completed my practicum and internship at Jersey Center for Nonviolence, a domestic violence organization, where I worked with adolescents, adult survivors, and adult perpetrators of domestic violence. I also completed an internship at Resolve Community Counseling Center where I worked with adolescents (14+) and adults. At Resolve, I enjoyed working with a variety of clients and issues such as anxiety, depression, and relationship issues as well as facilitating support groups for emotional eating with adults as well as an anxiety support group for teens. Additionally, I am a Certified Personal Trainer by National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM-CPT) as well as a Behavior Change Specialist by American Council on Exercise (ACE-BCS) which has increased my passion for helping individuals reach their body image and self-esteem goals in support of their mental health.

​Therapeutic Approach and Treatment Philosophy: Everyone has a story and each person is the expert of their own lives. Through a strength-based approach, I seek to understand and validate each client’s experience as an already whole and complete person while working together to identify strengths, abilities, and limiting beliefs about ourselves and the world around us that often cause emotional distress. Fostering a non-judgmental safe space for trust and rapport to grow is an essential building block for an effective therapeutic relationship. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, I view my role as being in the passenger seat, with the client as the driver, and the therapeutic relationship as the vehicle to achieving goals as well as self-empowerment. Throughout this journey, I utilize many tools and exercises that promote self-inquiry, clarity, insight, and growth. I believe in an integrative therapeutic approach to meet and adapt to each client’s needs and expectations of counseling, often using techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy), Person-Centered Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.

When I am not counseling, I enjoy exercising, watching professional wrestling, basketball, and going to the beach when it’s warm. I also enjoy reading, watching YouTube, and spending quality time with family and friends.
