Message to clients

If you are working, it is sometimes hard to find a therapist who allows you to not miss work to attend therapy services. My practice offers convenient evening and weekend hours which allows you to receive the services you need from the comfort of your home through virtual therapy.

As a LCADC with personal recovery experience, I can understand the client struggles with substance use or behavioral addictions in ways which typical therapists can’t comprehend. I am also able to help individuals who speak Spanish only since I am bilingual, which most therapist can’t.

Feel free to call my number for a free consultation. If I am in session, then please leave a message and I will respond to you usually in the same day. I am in network with Horizon BCBSNJ Commercial plans, CIGNA, and I am a 800 GAMBLER provider. I also offer private pay options that accepts credit and debit cards.
