Announcement icon We're now doing online sessions via our securely encrypted HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform. Same amazing therapists, now online!
Here at IPG, we know it's the connection between therapist and client that is most important. We have around 30 therapists through 3 offices in Freehold, Highland Park, and Jersey City. Since 1983 we've combined compassionate care with high-level expertise. We provide individual, family, child, and relationship counseling for problems ranging from depression to life transitions to marital strife. We also have a large group of certified sex therapists, a special focus on the LGBTQ community, services for transgender youth, therapy for those involved in BDSM and/or consensual non-monogamy, and a group for sex and pornography addicts.
Our many therapists have a wide range of expertise, from CBT to psychodynamic, EMDR and EFT. Moreover, we require our staff to stay trained in the latest modalities. Because of this, we can match you with a therapist who has the special skills to address your unique problems.
No matter what your problem is and no matter what approach is indicated, we can pair you with an IPG therapist who can help. We are open six days a week, so we can find times that fit your schedule. And we can work with most financial and insurance situations.
