Michael Baglieri, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychotherapist

Dr. Michael Baglieri is a psychotherapist specializing in couples counseling, family therapy, anxiety and depression, relational issues, dating, men’s issues, career development, workplace issues, cultural concerns, trauma, and grief and loss.

Dr. Baglieri uses an integrative approach to therapy, drawing from family systems, multicultural, and trauma-informed perspectives to empower client growth. He recognizes that healing means moving toward an engaged and meaningful life, rather than fixing something broken. He takes a holistic and compassionate stance by striving to understand and respect clients’ entire context, including their culture, identities, and history. He believes people, couples, and families are inherently resilient, and he creates a safe environment from which he can support clients in finding pathways forward.

Dr. Baglieri has worked with adults, couples, families, and organizations presenting with a range of backgrounds and concerns. He has received specialized training in evidence-based practices including Gottman Method couples therapy, emotion-focused therapy (EFT), prolonged exposure therapy (PE), cognitive behavioral conjoint therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and integrative behavioral couples therapy.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Baglieri has worked as an organizational consultant delivering solutions for leaders, teams, and organizations on culture, leadership development, employee experience, diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. His research on culture, men and masculinities, positive psychology, and relationships has led to national conference presentations and co-authorship on peer-reviewed publications. He is a member of the American Psychological Association, the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, the Society of Counseling Psychology, and the New Jersey Psychological Association. 

A postdoctoral fellow in New Jersey, Dr. Baglieri earned a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from James Madison University and a Master of Science in marriage and family therapy from Seton Hall University. He earned a doctorate in counseling psychology at the University of Kansas and completed an APA-accredited internship at Florida Gulf Coast University’s Counseling and Psychological Services. 

In his free time, Dr. Baglieri enjoys being with his Italian-American family, exercising, baking bread, and traveling.
