About this pro

I offer confidential phone and video therapy exclusively.  This provides you with the convenience to “meet” with your therapist from any location. If you live in New Jersey insurance may cover your session… Otherwise sessions are 50 minutes for $70 or three 50 minute sessions for $195.I look forward to speaking with you!

Some people choose their profession, others their career chooses them. I enjoy helping others and now I do it for a living.

    He’s down to earth and easy to talk with. He intuitively knows when to use humor respectfully to ease the tension that occurs when discussing difficult topics.

  • Erica H.

    I had the opportunity to visit with Brian for over a year. He is a kind, thoughtful, reliable therapist who truly listens and advises his clients. He always made me feel very comfortable and never rushed. I went through some tough times and really feel that he played intricate role in helping me move forward. I tried previous therapist and can honestly say I highly recommend Brian.

  • Joe Q.

    Brian is an awesome therapist and well suited for any age. He really gets it! He is very understanding and non- judgemental. He listens well and will help you with your situation. If you’re looking for a great therapist, I highly recommend Brian!!!

  • GC G.

    Brian was empathetic but direct, and I always felt as though he truly listened. Also very relatable.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

There is some initial paperwork to fill out online at our website. First session is a combination of reviewing a clients history, education on therapy, and usually I take away assignment.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Masters degree in clinical social work and have been doing clinical work since 2006. I have worked as a social worker since 2001.  Prior to 2001 I worked for five years as a schoolteacher. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

 If you live in New Jersey there is a chance your health insurance will cover part or all of your sessions however insurance companies are still not all on the same page with phone or video psychotherapy. If you are in another state or your insurance will not cover your sessions it is $70 per session. The session is 50 minutes long. There is a discount if you choose to buy more sessions. The sessions  are conveniently able to be paid for through our website. 


How did you get started in this business?

When I worked as a teacher I gravitated more towards children with problems so I went back to school to become a therapist.


What types of customers have you worked with?

At this point in my career I have worked with all ages and all populations.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My clients make progress… This happens regularly.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Someone always graduate at the bottom of their classes. If your gut tells you they are not the right therapist for you...move on. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

That is an easy question… Why are they coming to therapy?
