FAQ

While I wish I could offer you quick and easy solutions, I am afraid therapy doesn’t usually work that way.  You may be nervous about the process as often people are before their first appointment.

I once heard therapy described as tech support fo the soul. What we will do together is a shared process.

I don’t have any magic answers but I will commit to providing space for you to find the answers you already have inside.

You can expect that I will listen without judgement. You can expect I will ask careful questions and offer you encouragement and support  in your growth and change. You’ll do the work. I’ll provide the space, free of judgement, for you to do it. 

Good therapy requires a good therapeutic relationship. For both individuals and couples, the first session will help determine if we are a fit for one another.

I’ll ask you questions about your present and past. I’ll also tell you about my approach and what to expect from working with me. You can ask me questions you may have as well.

If we feel ready to continue the therapeutic relationship, we’ll schedule a future session. 

Yes,  I have office space in Red Bank, NJ where I see clients who can and want to come to sessions in person and I also offer telehealth through secure video conferencing, to clients anywhere in the state. I am a certified telehealth provider. 


The short answer is yes. The longer answer is, kinda. I am in-network with most plans of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield. Please call the number on the back of your card to inquire about copays, deductibles and mental health coverage. 

If you do not have Horizon, you will pay for sessions up front and I can give you a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please check with your plan for out of network coverage. 

Initial intake sessions are $175 

All other sessions are 

$150 for Individuals 

$200 for couples

 

To start, we should meet every week to establish a therapeutic relationship. 

Sessions are 50 minutes. 

After we have gotten to know one another and have established a good working relationship, we can move sessions to every other week. 

Some established clients then choose to check in once a month. 

I require 24 hours notice of cancellation or you will be charged the hourly rate for the time. 

It’s important that we meet consistently and your time is blocked off for you. That said, an occasional exception may be made in the case of an emergency as I understand that sometimes life has other plans.

While I am a Doctor of Psychology I have an eclectic, trauma informed approach to therapy as each individual has unique needs. 

I am trained in EMDR, trauma informed yoga & mindfulness and Gottman Method Levels 1&2 for Couples. I am also a Behaviorist with years of classroom teaching in my toolbox.

I’ve also studied as a doula and holistic health and nutrition coach. So, I tend to view presenting problems with a lens both wide and deep. 

I like to say my style is holistically pragmatic. I’ll have suggestions for  interventions, but I’ll always take the lead from you on where to go and how fast or slow to get there.

At Wonder Inc we believe fully in meeting people where they are. If you aren’t interested in weekly or even twice a month therapy sessions, we offer non-therapeutic options.

Puppy and Kid Mom Lesson of the Week: when things are too quiet or quiet for too long, you’re right, something not-so-good is happening.🤦‍♀️ It can be so easy to give into the quiet. I mean, toddlers (and puppies) are exhausting. So, when we get a couple extra stolen moments it makes sense we might let our guard down and sink into the silence. Here is the trick: when you investigate and find the reason for the quiet, don’t let the results ruin your rest. Flour all over the kitchen can be cleaned. Marker on the dining room chair can be removed (ask me how I know) and quarter round floor trim can be sanded and repainted (I hope!). The kids (and puppies) aren’t trying to wreck our houses or our days. They’re just doing what they do best: exploring and creating. Embrace it. Enjoy the quiet and roll with the “creativity” that comes with it. You’ll all be better off for it. We got this. xoxo, CRK . . . #puppiesandtoddlers #lovenotesformom #puppylessons #parenting ...

The messages have been clear for a while: I need more fun. Life’s been pretty heavy (as you know). Work’s felt extra heavy (as you might have guessed). To counteract all the heavy, I’m trying to add in more fun. I started with my hair. Bangs always make me feel younger and lighter. And this shag is either 70s disco or 80s punk. What the heck could be more fun than either of those? Now I just need to figure out how to have more fun in my days, not just on my head. What do you do for fun? . . . #mentalhealth #balance #shiftyourgaze ...
