Dr. Gozo and Frances

Aquino Mental Health is a private psychotherapy practice in Highlands N.J. I specialize in couples and family therapy. As you can see by my resume I am specifically  trained in this specialty. Often I see individuals from these families who branch off to work on personal growth after the relationship struggles have been sorted out. I work with a mindfulness approach to coaching people to see and to hear what is often right there before them. I love my work and have enjoyed seeing people choose to live a life without suffering. I see a wide range of clients with a wide range of concerns. It is in the person to person connection I believe the healing and growing occur.


Frances with Dr. Gozo

Meet Dr. Gozo a therapy pet and myself Frances Aquino LMFT, LCSW, BCD a Divorce Mental Health Facilitator and Divorce Coach assisting in the collaborative law divorce “UNCOUPLING” process. No one gets married with the hope of divorce. This solution is chosen after all else fails. It is a life changing decision. “Complicated Grief” comes with divorce. These feelings can interrupt your divorce process. I am here to guide you through these feelings and help separate them from your ability to think clearly, effectively and in your own best interest. I have thirty-five plus years of experience as a Marriage and Family therapist coaching couples, parents and children in my private practice. I believe in the collaborative law process and I look forward to working with you.

Another specialty is Yoga Therapy. This is for the individual who desires to achieve a mind-body-spirit connection. People who have experienced loss and trauma in their lives find this method very helpful. This is a hands on experience that combine breath work with assisted yoga postures and talking about what comes to mind in the moment.

I welcome your phone call and am happy to listen to your concerns as you plan what steps you are thinking about taking to improve the quality of your life and your partner/ family’s life.
