Sometimes we all need help in order to face and negotiate life’s challenges. Relationships, careers, life transitions, self-esteem, substance abuse, depression, and other issues can sometimes feel unmanageable. Talking to an experienced, compassionate professional who understands the nature of suffering can help. As a human being out here in the world, the chances are that you or someone with whom you’re close could benefit from the sort of services that we at The Counseling and Mindfulness Group offer. We’re qualified to work with a wide range of mental health and life problems and look forward to speaking with you.

We will help you to uncover your inherent strengths, and pull on the tools you already have, as well as giving you new tools to address the roadblocks that keep you stuck. We know that life can be difficult at times; we have negotiated our own way through challenges in addition to years of professional training and action.

We provide a safe, compassionate, nonjudgmental and confidential environment. New Jersey law and professional ethics require that we keep all communications confidential except in instances where you disclose intent to harm yourself or another, you report elder or child abuse, or by court order. If you are utilizing insurance benefits, occasionally we may have to discuss certain aspects of your treatment with insurance personnel.   Occasionally we may also consult with another mental health professional if we believe it will be beneficial to you.   We may ask you to sign a release of information if you are seeing a psychiatrist or medical doctor who may provide additional information that helps us to help you.

Therapy sessions are generally 45 minutes in duration. If you need to cancel a session, we ask for 24 hours notice except in cases of emergency, or you may be charged for the missed session. We value your time and ask that you value ours. Please call us if you would like to schedule an appointment. We generally return calls within 24 hours. If you face an emergency situation, please call 911 or your local hospital crisis line.

Don’t hesitate to call with questions. We are dedicating to helping our others and being of service to our community.

We accept some insurance (see below) and are happy to work on a sliding scale when necessary.

We are members of the American Counseling Association, The Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, and The Association for Contextual Behavioral Sciences.
