About nadine

Welcome!  I’m so glad you’re here.

My name is Dr. Nadine O’Reilly and I am a licensed psychologist in private practice in Englewood, NJ. My office is currently open to in-person sessions, but I do offer telehealth appointments to those who would prefer to engage in therapy from the safety and comfort of their homes.

If you are experiencing depression or sadness, anxiety, stress, relationship struggles, or just know there must be something more out there for you and need a safe space to map it out, you’ve come to the right place. My favorite thing in life is to facilitate change. I live for those “Aha!” moments in therapy when growth occurs. 

If I’m being honest, there is nothing I love more (besides my family!) than helping my clients feel better about themselves, rid themselves of negative belief patterns, and live life to the fullest. It is more than a calling – mental wellness is my passion.

My journey to becoming a psychologist was definitely not a straight line, so I’m personally acquainted with how scary change can be. My first “real job” was Executive Assistant to a high-ranking professional at a global company. At the time, I was 22 years old, newly married, and eager to start life in earnest. I credit that job with pointing me to the place I am today. Over time, my boss recognized my strength in building trusting relationships and encouraging people to leave their comfort zones to lead fulfilling careers and authentic lives. He encouraged me to pursue psychology as a career and I’m ever so grateful I listened to his advice.

My background now includes working as a School Psychologist and providing therapy and consultation to adolescents and their families since 2003. I earned my doctorate degree in 2011 and have been working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, and life stressors ever since. I am also trained in EMDR and able to help people work through trauma with evidence-based treatment.

I see my role as a psychologist not as one where I tell you how to live your life.  Instead, it’s to hold space for you so that you feel empowered to let it all out.  I will listen not only to what you say but how you say it, so that I can help you interpret your feelings beyond the obvious.  Throughout our time together I will help you gain new insight, tools, and skills that will help you grow comfortably into your new skin.  I’ll be right by your side when it gets uncomfortable (and fair warning, sometimes it does).

My clients are high-functioning individuals who are motivated and committed to change. When we meet, you’re the only person who matters. Your life story and all of its perfect imperfections are my focus.  I will treat you with respect, and together we will have fun while empowering you to make the changes you wish to make.

Enough about me. You’re ready to start your journey to wellness with a caring, empathic straight-shooter who will be in your corner without judgment or blame. Please don’t delay – call, email, or fill out a contact form today. Life can be amazing and I promise you this: 

You don’t have to struggle alone.

“Can it really get better?”

Yes, it absolutely can.


All of this is possible.

When you work with me, you get to drop the mask and be yourself.  You get to be vulnerable and real, sarcastic, irreverent, weepy, exhausted, and all the feelings in between.

As we build our bond, you’ll feel safe to explore the thoughts and feelings you’ve been avoiding.  You can gain the confidence you need to be yourself wherever you go and with whomever you meet.  

That’s my goal for you:  Permission to be yourself, unapologetically.
