Hi! I’m Jaclyn Hoffman, LPC – a counselor serving women and children in New Jersey.

I always aspired to be a counselor because I always found fulfillment in helping others. I have extensive experience providing care through in-home counseling, outpatient, group therapy, and partial care programs. I have worked with children, teens, adults, and families.


A bulk of my experience comes from working in crisis diversion or early intervention for adults. I have transitioned to focus on grief and loss as an area of specialty as well as incorporating spirituality into my style of work. I utilize methods like the Emotional Freedom Technique (or tapping) and HeartMath as a means to help manage stress and intense feelings or emotions. I also integrate Energy Psychology practices into my work and believe in the power of mindfulness and meditation. I believe there’s no “one size fits all” approach to therapy. I will meet and work with you where you are and we will both explore the right avenue to sustaining your wellness.

I meet mostly via telehealth but for local individuals, in-person sessions are possible. This can be elaborated on through a consultation.

Dr. Christopher W. Shapley, DVM, CVA blends all of the best elements of Eastern and Western medicine in his daily practice. Instead of seeing these medicines as conflicting or contradictory modalities, he merges them for the best possible outcomes for his patients Dr. Shapley's philosophy is that having an open mind to a multimodal approach to medicine ensures the most success. He readily and easily combines the appropriate pharmaceuticals and herbal formulations for the long-term well-being of his patients. He firmly believes in a holistic approach and treating the underlying cause of the maladies his patients are experiencing. 


Dr. Shapley practices medicine in an all-encompassing manner to ensure the best possible outcomes for your pets. With a whole-pet approach to therapy, patients are evaluated on the basis of their environment, disease, condition or pain score, and lifestyle, as well as results from diagnostic modalities such as blood tests, ultrasound, and radiographs (X-rays). Dr. Shapley works with our other veterinary services to ensure your pet's condition is addressed from all angles.

Born and raised in New Jersey, my life was surrounded by animals and nature. My mother's love of horses and my father's love for my mother made my childhood a precious equestrian experience.

Looking back, there was a lot of 'saving lives' in my youth - from saving a frog from the deadly grip of a stag beetle to freeing the mourning doves fluttering at the inside window longing to get out of the barn to the thoroughbred horse flying past me at full speed with the reigns dangling down near the hooves.

Once I discovered the miraculous 'saving' abilities of homeopathic medicine, there was no turning back. I had to learn all I could (and still learning) to help the illnesses of humans and animals.

As for cupping therapy, my interest initiated when I learned that Our Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) used to get cupped and said "there are blessings for the cupper and the cupped".

Hi! I’m Laure Matos, RYT 200 and Post Harvest & Lab Packaging Manager at Terrascend NJ. I have been practicing yoga for seven years now. Yoga became my guide to pull myself out of a not-so-healthy lifestyle and helped me begin living my life to its highest potential. Beginning my practice was one of the best things I have ever done. Yoga has taught me to be content & happy with where I am, to be present & learn to let things go and to practice strength & balance in life through hardships & happiness. I knew right from when I started and felt these changes within myself, that one day I wanted to share this practice with as many people as I can. I became a certified yoga teacher in February 2020. I love the feeling of community and strive to bring this connection into my yoga classes. I love creating classes that everyone will enjoy!

Aside from my yoga practice, I am passionate about protecting our planet. 
Mother Earth offers so much beauty to be respected and enjoyed. 

I believe in cannabis as medicine, and manage a large department at a medical cannabis grow and manufacturing facility right at home here in Boonton, NJ.

I am an artist, I love to create.

I love traveling, being outdoors, animals, music, & nature photography.
