Telehealth Counseling in New Jersey

“The bee’s life is like a magic well: the more you draw from it, the more it fills with water”

Karl Von Frisch

Since the worldwide pandemic began in March, 2020, therapeutic services have undergone a significant shift in how counselors and their patients meet one another. At the height of the pandemic, with little ability to move outside of one’s home, it became a necessity to meet for therapy sessions via telehealth counseling means, i.e. via video or phone sessions.

Even though the pandemic is largely seen as something of the past with life returning to normal, I have moved my therapy practice to a full telehealth counseling service that serves people in multiple states, including New Jersey, Washington, and Maryland. 

In this way, no matter what is happening with mask mandates in health care settings, your access to me will not be curtailed via telehealth counseling.

Some of the benefits of telehealth counseling that I appreciate include:

  1. Equitable access to mental health care services. Given I serve the entire states of New Jersey, Washington, and Maryland, you can be in any area of these states and through either video or phone have access to mental health care services.
  2. Convenience to integrate your mental health care into the rest of your day. Most people are at work and/or have commitments that must be attended to throughout their days. Being able to easily access mental health services via video or phone makes it convenient to have care alongside the rest of your life.
  3. A savings of time and resources. No longer do you need to worry about commuting to your therapist’s office, paying for parking, and more. In an easy click on a telehealth link, you are in session with me reducing stress and worry of making it to an in-person session.

Sometimes, telehealth counseling sessions are not in the best interest of a patient. This can be the case if a patient needs to be in the same physical space as the therapist. This can often be determined and decided together between yourself and me. 

Telehealth counseling will always be offered at the request of the patient. If it does not work well for you, I will always have the ability to provide a referral list of other counselors who may be able to meet with you in person.

For more information regarding the details of accessing telehealth sessions with me, please reach out to me directly. I look forward to hearing from you.
