Justine Hinge is a personal effectiveness strategy coach and New Jersey Licensed Associate Counselor.
Justine works adults, adolescents, and children. She specializes in working with resourceful people who find themselves stuck. Her coaching and therapeutic style directly addresses how to move past obstacles such as not marshalling the resources they need to succeed in their goals, investing time in the things that move them forward, and developing the relationships that will fulfill their needs.
Justine is a high-energy, positive, passionate person who assists clients in clarifying their values and moving toward them. This is best accomplished by taking on a personal responsibility focus.
A special treatment focus is working with athletes of all ages and their families who are experiencing pressure regarding performance, academics, career, and/or relationship concerns. Often, athletes experience disruptions in performance due to injuries and various school and career pressures. This can result in feelings of excessive worry and self-doubt. Justine focuses on the obstacles and helps clients and their families overcome them.
Justine holds a certification in clinical hypnotherapy from the American Hypnosis Training Academy in Silver Spring, MD, where she completed a 6-day training course in Ericksonian Hypnosis and Brief Psychotherapy.
Settings in which Justine has worked include an outpatient mental health clinic, a residential drug and alchohol rehabilitation facility, and a private psychiatry practice. These settings have helped underscore Justine's treatment philosophy that people have all the inner resources they need to overcome their difficulties, and most people just need some assistance unlocking their potential.
