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 your life suddenly includes being a caregiver, I am committed to providing you with the tools, strategies and support to help you learn to take as good care of yourself as you do of those you love. While stress and challenges may be a given in your life, suffering with them and through them is optional. You can make your needs a priority in spite of the added responsibilities of caring for a loved one.”
My Story
“I am Loren Gelberg-Goff, LCSW, in private practice for over 30 years in River Edge, NJ. I work with family careregivers, empowering them to take as good care of themselves as they do of others in their lives.

Take Back Your Life: Art of Self-Care virtual group program provides real life strategies, guidance and support to empower you to find freedom in the midst of overwhelm.
Take Back Your Life: A Caregiver's Guide to Finding Freedom in the Midst of Overwhelm is my latest book written especially for caregivers to help them learn to take as good care of themselves as they do of those they love.
My first 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.
Both books are available on Amazon as well as an e-book version. Visit my website for more details to help you Take back your life... www.LorenGelbergGoff.com”
