Edeline Elicin, LMFT
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both New Jersey and New
York Edeline Elicin has made it her calling to help individuals, couples, and family in
overcoming life adversities. Edeline Elicin received her Bachelor’s degree from
Rutgers University- Newark in Psychology, Sociology and minoring in African
American Studies. She continued her journey of higher education by attending Seton
Hall University, studying in Marriage and Family Therapy with a concentration in

Edeline has continued her studies at Widener University to specialize in Human
Edeline has always been intrigued in couple systems; the choice of two
strangers who decide to spend the rest of their lives together and fighting through
all odds to remain a unit. When conceptualizing relationships Edeline believes that
individuals have experienced many factors in life, ranging from traumas to the most
treasured memories that shaped their understanding of life. These two individuals,
will have moments in which communication will not
be verbalized properly; and that’s normal. What is not normal is when contempt and hatred
is brought into the therapy room. My goal is to support my couples in whichever
decision they choose to make in their marriage in the most healthy and amicable
Edeline has worked in various setting within the realm of mental health. She
began her career as a counselor working in residential facility for behavioral adults
with severe Axis 1 diagnoses ranging from schizophrenia to Bi- Polar disorders.
Edeline has also worked with the incarceration population as a couples and family
therapist. Within this location, she orchestrated reunification, aka Family Nights, in
hope to lower the recidivism with familial and spousal supports. Edeline has also
worked within the welfare population to assistance individual and families with
social support systems, and her clinical work ranges from substance abuse groups,
sex education workshops, healthy relationships seminars, Domestic Violence
Survivors’ groups, anger management, private practice, and has sat on panels
discussing the importance of mental health and self-care. Edeline also has worked
Clinical supervisor, assisting new clinicians with honing their crafts and learning the
self of the therapist.
Edeline enjoys participating in speaking engagements and seminars to
promote mental health, healthy relationship and communication skills. Edeline also
loves to discuss the intersectionality of race, culture, and society and how it impacts
a person’s mental health and self-esteem.
Edeline believes our emotions dictate the way we view life and how we
perceive others to be. We also use our emotions to keep others at bay and to protect
ourselves. Understanding our underlined emotions and what happened in our past
that made us react this way is a very important practice for me.
I believe in love. I believe that every life experience has brought us closer to
the person we are today. Some may want to shy away from the hurtful/ painful
times but I embrace it. Joy is never fully understood without sorrow, No heartbreak
is more painful than once we experienced true love. Trauma doesn’t create victims,
it simply creates survivors. And no sexual act is more orgasmic then when you truly
love and accept yourself.
