Spencer Mullen, MA, LAC
Spencer's academic background includes a Master of Arts in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from William Paterson University, where he was passionate about learning as much as possible about psychotherapy. In addition, he has been involved in three research articles, with the most relevant work published in the journal Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience, which explored the impact of age and cognitive reserve on resting-state brain connectivity.
Growing up in a small town in Northern New Jersey called Woodland Park, Spencer's personal experience with a family member who struggled with addiction has driven his passion for working in addiction as a licensed clinician. Spencer's job responsibilities include co-facilitating group sessions, holding individual sessions, conducting intakes, monitoring drug testing, and ensuring client safety. He takes great pride in providing a safe and comfortable space for clients to open up and work through their challenges, using therapeutic modalities such as CBT, Psychodynamic, and ACT.
