During my life, I've come to notice that opportunities present themselves frequently, but it's about the desire for the acceptance of change, or the fear in doing so that makes the difference. One must have the ability to want to change and better themselves. I've allowed myself to seize every moment, despite any circumstances in front of me, and I encourage you to do the same. If you can't on your own, I am here to help you by building the mental framework that is needed, so you can acquire all of your dreams and goals.

Endlessly scrolling through therapist’s profiles can be frustrating and confusing, I get it! So, let me tell you what I am looking for in a client. I am looking for a client who would benefit from a safe space to discuss and process their emotions. A client who would like to improve their overall mental health by learning new positive coping skills and wouldn’t mind completing therapeutic homework outside of session. My client would benefit from processing past traumatic events and learn how those experiences impact their current life.

These factors contribute to achievement of pleasure and fulfillment in life and relationships. My strength is that I incorporate the theory of cognitive therapy with the concept that past experiences and interactions have an influence on current beliefs and behavioral patterns. Through this approach, I am able to come to a more complete conceptualization and establish trust and rapport with my clients which enables them to engage in the therapeutic process more fully.

Change is hard. For some of us it is simply a need to explore a specific issue, job change, relationship exploration, or a goal for our future. For others, long held negative thoughts/ beliefs, anxiety and depression can paralyze moving forward, leaving us floundering for years. Regardless, change is possible. It is your turn, there is hope.

Maybe life seems to have sped up due to the demands of family, work or school. This is far too common and can be emotionally and physically debilitating. Somehow, we end up in our own way and things become overwhelming. The good news is we can also get out of our way. You have already taken an important first step and are considering psychotherapy.

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 Toms River, this list of Teletherapyists 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 Toms River 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.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.
