Have you ever felt your interactions with others do not represent your true self? Do you often feel misunderstood? Do you lack emotional energy or avoid uncomfortable situations? Are you often triggered but lack self-awareness to understand the source of your feelings? Perhaps you are a teen or young adult wondering how your feelings and emotional intelligence will affect your life.

I am a firm believer in encouraging positivity, bolstering self-efficacy, and cultivating independence in others. My typical client is a child, adolescent , or young adult (age 3 to 29) who may be struggling academically, socially, or with developing effective emotional coping skills. Often, the individuals I see have difficulty with attention, concentration, organization, and with meeting the daily demands required of them at school. I also offer much support to parents who may be frustrated with their attempts at connecting with their kids and who are in need of guidance relating to discipline techniques and behavior management.

Change is the one constant in our lives. It can also be an experience we may find the most challenging and unsettling. When the change is one we want to make and perceive as positive, it can still be difficult.

The Institute for Personal Growth (IPG) has been a kink-friendly psychotherapy provider, and we have worked with consensually nonmonogamous relationships, since our inception in 1983. Our team of around 30 psychotherapists across three NJ locations (Highland Park, Jersey City, and Freehold) has personal and professional experience with alternative sexual orientations and lifestyles. You may not even want to talk about your kink or CNM lifestyle, but you definitely want someone who is knowledgeable and affirming of who you are. And if your issues are in fact related to kink or CNM, we understand and can provide support and guidance.

People are helped most by considering all aspects of their lives, their strengths as well as the areas giving them problems. Therefore, I will treat you as a whole person, not just as a diagnosis. We will work together to understand how your past is affecting your current situation, and get to the bottom of your issues, for achieving deep, lasting changes. Speaking freely and without inhibitions with your therapist is essential and I work to provide a warm, safe environment for you to do so. I also offer group therapy, which is very effective when combined with individual sessions.

Here are some thoughts about two of my specialties, individual therapy and couple therapy: Individual Therapy: In the therapeutic relationship, you feel free to begin to discuss your hopes and fears in a safe environment. As the process develops, you and the therapist discover themes in your life. This leads to an exploration of repetitive patterns of behavior as well as of their associated thoughts and feelings. The goal of this journey is to gain a sense of mastery and self-esteem.

If you’ve made it to this profile, you can take a deep breath and relax a little because you’ve taken the first, and probably most difficult, step in your healing journey. Anxiety and depression may tell us we’re okay on our own or that we may be a burden to others, but it can be helpful to let someone else provide guidance and help navigate the difficult things life throws our way.

When working with children, I also work closely with parents to help them understand the nature of their child's difficulties and develop strategies to support his or her normal development and healthy emotional functioning.

Trust is the most important part of any relationship. It's important to be able to trust others but more importantly to trust yourself. “The true key is trust in self, for when I trust myself I fear no one else, I took control of my life, just as anyone can, I want everyone to see it’s in the palm of your hand, the past is gone, the future yet unborn, but right here and now is where it all goes on”-MCA Beastie Boys. With trust you can increase your connection to others as well as increase your ability to tolerate life’s ups and downs and enjoy life in the moment.

*If you are looking for my family business consulting practice, go to: www.blumandsavlov.com.* I have many years of experience helping people to find relief from anxiety, depression and relationship problems. Also, I find it very rewarding to guide people in creating the best life possible by helping them to develop greater confidence, improve friendships and intimate relationships (dating, marriage, long-term life partnerships), get more satisfaction out of work and have more fun and meaningful lives. My style is interactive and conversational and an in-person meeting is the best way to find out if we are a good match to work together.

Hello and welcome. Over the years I have worked with clients who present with a variety of issues, particularly high school, college and graduate students. I'm attuned to the challenges that adolescents and young adults face and also work with parents to navigate dilemmas that arise as children grow older. In addition, I'm experienced in working with educators and understand the demands placed on them. I seek to provide a non-judgmental and supportive environment where we will work together. I am happy to speak with you and determine if we are a good fit.

An important, positive, life event occurs when you decide to seek therapy. It is not an easy decision. Should you decide to call me, you can anticipate that it will be a gentle, informative and positive experience. Clients describe me as being upbeat, easygoing and knowledgable. While I generally use Cognitive, Behavioral Treatment, I am trained in a variety of treatment modalities which can be tailored to your needs. What will always happen is hope as we work together to repair what I often describe as "broken dreams."

At IPG, we are proud pioneers in gender affirming psychotherapy for transgender and gender nonconforming people. We view gender diversity as normal, not a mental illness. We're more experienced than any other practice in New Jersey, with 800+ trans clients and 30+ years of experience. We were recently awarded a PROUD Award recognizing our decades of work with and dedication to the transgender community. At all three of our locations (Highland Park, Jersey City, and Freehold) we have skilled gender specialists who work with trans and GNC adults, adolescents, and children as young as three. Why consult anyone less than an expert?

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Highland Park and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
