My Approach to Helping
Are you feeling emotional pain and don't know what to do? Are you tired of feeling that way? Are your relationships a mess? Now is the time to reach out and have someone come alongside. You don't have to go through this alone. My desire is we can work together for you to get through the pain and problems and find new ways, healthier ways, of living life. Your honest feedback each session will help me fit into the style and methods that will most help you. I like to look at the whole person- your relationships, your emotions, your thinking, as well as where you are physically (nutrition, exercise, etc.) and spiritually and the past memories that may be affecting you. I meet you where you are. I use a variety of approaches to bring about the results you want.
More Info About My Practice
I am the Director and one of the 8 therapists that work at Light the Way Counseling Center. We have 4 locations to help serve you better. Our main office is in Midland Park. In addition we have an office in Fort Lee, New Brunswick, and Verona. We also have counselors that speak Spanish. We are out of network with insurance and I will gladly discuss our reasons for that. My fee is $140 for a full hour. Our other counselors' hourly fees range from $100-130 per hour. We also offer a FAST START that is especially helpful for families and couples for their first session. You can go directly to our web site and schedule an appointment online either with myself or one of our other counselors.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Typically, I see people once a week. When you first come in I will recommend the frequency of visits that is most beneficial for you. In the beginning, it is helpful for faster healing to meet consistently every week. Sometimes, it may be more frequently at first and then after a few weeks, or more, you may be ready to come in less frequently. The feedback that I receive from you, at each session, will help determine the services, methods and frequency in our work together.
