Life Is Worth Living Because...
“As long as we are alive we have opportunities to embrace our true worth and live 'being wellwithin'. ”
About My Work
“When life throws you curves, I am committed to providing you with the tools, strategies and support to help you change the ways stress impacts your life. While stress and challenges may be a given in your life, suffering with them and through them is optional. You deserve to live feeling good about who you are in spite of the obstacles in your life.”
My Story
“I am Loren Gelberg-Goff, LCSW, in private practice for the past 25 years in River Edge, NJ. Through individual sessions, my workshops and, audio CD’s, I provide a unique style of psychotherapy that helps people become authentically empowered so that they are able to live their lives to their fullest potential, knowing they really are and always have been well within.

I do individual and marriage counseling, hypnotherapy and neurofeedback, as well as workshops and seminars on relationships, communication, anger, forgiveness and stress management, etc. I have written a variety of articles that have been published on a number of Self-esteem sites as well as through E-zine Articles.com. I have audio CD’s available to enhance self-esteem, promote inner healing, and to aid in stress management and relaxation. I also hosted a weekly Internet radio program “Loving the Life You’re In” which focused on issues relating to self-esteem, self-empowerment & self-respect. Replays of the shows are available by contacting me: Loren@LorenGelbergGoff.com or Loren@beingwellwithin.com
My book, which I co-authored with Dr. Carmel-Ann Mania, Being Well Within: From Distressed to De-Stressed brings you realistic, helpful strategies, tools, support and guidance to eliminate the negative effects of stress in your body, mind and life. You can get the book directly from my website, beingwellwithin.com or through Barnes and Nobel, Amazon..etc.”
