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 a magic wand but I will commit to providing guidance, tangible tools to help and 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 tolls to use for healing and the encouragement and support we all need for real growth and change. Together we’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 future sessions.
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 no. The longer answer is, kinda. You will pay me for services after each session and then I can give you a superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please check with your plan for your specific out of network coverage.
Initial intake sessions are $200
All other sessions are
$175 for Individuals
$250 for couples
I offer two options: booking sessions individual sessions or enrolling in the You Reinvented program which is a package of sessions over 4 months that includes the tools of therapy and additional support throughout our time together.
In each case, we will begin meeting every week to establish a therapeutic relationship. After we have gotten to know one another and have established a good working relationship, we can extend time between sessions.
Sessions are 50 minutes.
Some clients choose to check in once a month after we have established their care.
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, and tools to implement that can provide relief while you work. No matter what process we use, 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.
