***At this time I am not accepting new clients for therapy. I have limited space available in a couples workshop*** Something is wrong and you've been trying to fix it. Relationships are rocky. How can you get your needs met when it seems like everyone else's needs come first? You're misunderstood and confused about your role. What are the rules here? What is "normal"? It has been a long time since you felt a sense of order and stability in your relationship. You crave a sense of belonging. And peace.

I work with creative people, perfectionists, harsh self-critics and existential struggles in singles, couples & groups. I have expertise in helping people recognize problematic substance use, with Harm Reduction as a philosophical approach. Cross-cultural sensitivity is a great value. I enjoy working with young and early-career adults. I enjoy learning from the people I see.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 02144, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 02144 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 02144 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 02144. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 02144

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 02144 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 02144 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 02144 or family therapy in 02144.
