Dr. Ralph D. Dell’Aquila LPC

New Jersey Board Certified Psychologist & Professional Counselor

My philosophy combines humanistic understanding coupled with practical cognitive interventions. As Viktor Frankl, MD stated many years ago, “when we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.” I operate from a competency model which builds upon the strengths of individuals by helping them to transcend life’s challenges by encouragement and development of adaptive life strategies.

I am a licensed psychologist in NJ and a licensed professional counselor in NJ and DC. I have successfully worked with individuals, couples and families. My professional experience has included crisis, short-term and long- term interventions in a variety of settings. I am Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) who has provided evaluation and counseling to safety sensitive personnel, covering all modes of transportation (see Department of Transportation (DOT) Guidelines 49 CFR Part 40 .281).
