Paul Thomas Vitaletti Ed.S., LMFT is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specialing in individual, couples and trauma therapy.
With over 40 years of experience working with special needs children, and 30 years in private practice specializing in couples and trauma therapies, I have gained a wide range of professional experience in the helping profession. As a graduate of Seton Hall University as a Marraige and Family therapist I am currently serving as private practitioner working with a broad spectrum of clients.
For those couples interested in marital or couples therapy with me it is important to read tihs paragraph before considering making an appointment. I have come to realize that relationships provide a spiritual opportunity to heal issues within yourself as an individual. It
is important that you understand I see relationship conflicts as a mirror, each partner triggering something in the other that needs to be healed. This means that I do not focus on who is right or who is wrong, I focus on the feelings that come up during the interaction and what each partner may need to heal within their own self. I am not focused on fixing the relationship, as many may want and expect, for I see relationship as a vehicle to healing the self and nothing more.Typically, when people are willing to heal issues within their own core, the relationship will deepen, or dissolve, as it's spiritual purpose has been fulfilled. It you understand this concept, then I am interested in working with you. If you do not, I lovingly suggest that you keep looking for the type of therapist that more suitably fits your own personal belief system.
I am a highly interactive and solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I often integrate complementary and alternative methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I will work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
