Individual Therapy: You and I will meet in person for 50-minute individual psychotherapy sessions at my office. Appointments generally occur weekly. Should it make sense to increase or decrease the frequency of our sessions, we will discuss and make that decision together. If we are working together using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), individual sessions will be structured as such.
Phone Coaching: This service is available for clients who are engaged in DBT individual sessions and DBT skills training group.
Advanced DBT Skills Group: The Advanced DBT Skills Group is designed to help people who have had DBT skills training apply them to their day-to-day lives. Members are encouraged to use group time to discuss issues they may have, share ways in which skills use has helped them effectively cope, and learn from each other. Group member criteria: ability to commit to 6 months of weekly group sessions, minimum of 6 months in a DBT skills training group or equivalent, and no active life-threatening behaviors. This group meets on Mondays from 6pm-7:15pm.
Couples Therapy: Sometimes it can be helpful to manage relationship issues with a third party. Let me help you sort out conflict; infidelity issues; stress related to having a child, moving, or changing jobs; or the impact of past trauma on your relationship.
Supervision: I am able to provide supervision toward licensure for clinical psychologists in New Jersey.
Insurance: I am in network with Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO plans and Medicare. If you have another insurance provider or plan, I will work with that company directly for out of network benefits, provided that your insurance company is willing to work with me. As long as you’ve met your deductible, just bring in your co-insurance payment (usually between 10% and 50% of the full fee depending on your plan). If this is confusing (and insurance can totally be confusing), call me, and I’ll help you figure it out.
I also offer limited sliding scale spots through Open Path Collective. If you are interested in working with me for a reduced fee, please sign up with Open Path (your membership is good for life!), find me, and I will be happy to schedule an appointment with you. I believe that therapy should be accessible to whomever needs it, and I will work with you to help you get the treatment that you need.
