Carli Hench received her Bachelors of Arts degree from her beloved Alma Mater, Kean University, where she studied Psychology and Theatre. She went on to pursue her Masters of Social Work degree at Rutgers University, where she was reminded of her passion to serve. She began her career in service at Kean University in Student Affairs, where she was an educator, mentor, trainer and leadership coach for college students. Simultaneously, as a Licensed Social Worker, she had the privilege of serving children; adolescents; adults; couples; families; and individuals with special needs, both in an Intensive In-home Community setting and Outpatient practice.

Carli believes that relationships are at the core of our very existence and that each and every person she has the opportunity to work with is a gift. She utilizes a strengths based perspective to provide relief to individuals utilizing sound theoretical practices and strategic tactics to improve an individual’s quality of life. Her empathic and motivational style allows others to feel empowered. Regardless of where an individual is starting, she believes her job is to support them in their journey, assist them in visioning their path and strategize with them as they overcome their challenges.

Carli is an avid learner and believes that “A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers” (Helen Keller). She believes learning takes place everywhere in everything we do, see and engage in, as long as we are open to it. Carli is a proud mother of two boys, a thespian, a writer, a lover of art and music. She loves to read, meditate, laugh, do yoga, travel and eat, as her son says – “yummy food”. She is always open to new experiences wherever she goes and works every day to find the space between the future and the past, where we, as human beings, can be more focused, more present and more fulfilled.
