Co-founder and partner of Comprehensive Counseling Center, Howell NJ. I've been in practice for 30+ years. My primary focus is couples, marital and adult individual counseling. My role, when a couple or individual seeks out counseling, is to both be able to listen, in a caring non-judgemental way, and be direct when necessary. I work with the client to tailor the treatment to their unique needs; to help with guidance, support and information, so that things can move forward and their goals can be reached. It's a process that works best when we work together, and is done in an atmosphere of respect, confidentiality and safety.

I believe a good fit with a therapist is crucial to successful treatment. The right relationship can facilitate healing right from the start.

While striving to create a casual and welcoming environment, I tailor the treatment to suit the individual's needs and goals, first and foremost.

Exploring the lived human experience involves acknowledging its diverse challenges, wide range of emotions, and the essential role of healthy relationships. Therapy is a blend of empathy, empowerment, unwavering support, and professional guidance. It provides a constructive framework for individuals to explore, understand, and ultimately embrace their authentic selves. The focus should always be on the client's growth and progress. I take immense pride in my clients' accomplishments, celebrating them as if they were my own.

How are alcohol or other drugs showing up in your life? Anxiety and depression can be contributing factors and/or consequences. Maybe you're questioning if you have a problem, or you are in early recovery and want support to maintain your sobriety. You might feel discouraged when you break promises to yourself to cut back or stop. Trying to hide your use from family and friends can be exhausting. Sometimes habits turn into patterns that are hard to break despite your best intentions. Unresolved trauma can make recovery challenging.

As John Lennon wrote "Life is what happens when we're busy making other plans". Our lives have been changed significantly since March 2020. We may be still social distancing and feeling somewhat disconnected from family and friends. Many people continue to experience anxiety, depression and relationship issues as a result. Most of my clients had initial reservations about trying telehealth but, much like everything else lately, we’re resilient and go with the flow. The benefits of telehealth are that you don’t have to travel, scheduling is much easier and you can be seen wherever you have internet (must be in NJ during session).

A personal therapy experience is about creating a practice of getting connected to ourselves by increasing self-awareness of our mind, body and brain, and learning healthy, adaptive skills to experience a fulfilling life. As a child we develop adaptive methods to navigate life that in adult life become maladaptive and cause suffering. My current focus is working with adults assisting them in experiencing relief related to past traumas and current life events. Through the use of various therapies and exploration of the mind, brain and body's response to triggers, we collaboratively work to facilitate relief.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
