Frequently Asked Questions


What is teletherapy?

Please see "About Teletherapy".

Is teletherapy effective?

Teletherapy has been shown by many research studies to be equally or more effective that traditional in-person therapy. Read more information here and here.

Is teletherapy appropriate for all people and all situations?

Teletherapy is appropriate for most people, but not all. During our initial phone call or email exchange, I will ask you some questions to ensure that teletherapy is right for you. If I feel that teletherapy is not a good fit for you, we can meet for in-person sessions in my office in Clifton, NJ, or  I will refer to other qualified providers who can see you for in-person therapy in your local area.

Do you also see clients in-person?

Yes! I offer in-person sessions in Clifton NJ. Limited office hours are available - contact me today to schedule.

What type of clients do you see?

I see mainly clients struggling with anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, relationships, or parenting. I am open to clients who do not fit into these categories; if I feel that we would not be a good fit, I will refer you to a qualified therapist who is a better fit for you.

Do you take insurance?

I am not currently in-network with any insurance companies. However, if your insurance coverage includes out-of-network benefits, I would be happy to provide you with an itemized bill after each session which you can then submit to your insurance company for partial or full reimbursement.

What is your general therapy approach?

I take an integrated, person-centered approach incorporating interventions from CBT, DBT. ACT, and mindfulness. I will collaborate with you to create a personalized treatment plan targeting your specific goals and priorities. I will be very open to hearing your feedback throughout the therapy process, to make sure that our work is maximally effective for as you work towards your goals.

If you don't have specific therapy goals, or are still exploring what those goals may be, I am happy to also provide supportive, traditional "talk-therapy". I strive to create a safe space where you can explore yourself and process your thoughts and feelings.
