Hello and welcome to my profile page! A bit about me: A native New Yorker, I graduated from City College (CCNY) with a BA in Psychology. I then attended YU (Wurzweiler School of Social Work), acquiring my MSW and becoming licensed as an LCSW. Essentially, I view myself as a Life Coach, a motivator who recognizes that we are all unique individuals, but paradoxically share many common thoughts and feelings at different times. We've all struggled with anxiety, uncertainty and self-doubt- yet we have also experienced feeling confident, grounded and secure. Our backgrounds and early childhood experiences, our genetic predispositions all serve to shape our personalities and the essence of our being. To that end, as a clinician, I strive to assist my clients in examining their beliefs and thoughts to gain insight into their potentially self-destructive behavior- or whatever they feel is getting in the way of their success. Together, we will explore why you have sought treatment now- and what you are looking to achieve or gain. What do you identify as the biggest challenge or issue? What have you tried so far and why hasn't it worked, long-term? Often it is this: Complacency vs Burning Desire. How do you keep the momentum going? The power of ignited vision. Designing a dream & getting specific. Having a daily schedule. What are you going to get excited about today? What concerns you that could trip you up? I have helped many clients develop high performance habits, starting with sharpening their self-awareness and being intentional. I invite you to join me in this exciting adventure of self-discovery. In the immortal words of Anthony Robbins, when would Now be a good time? Looking forward to working with you! DEBORAH ALTER, LCSW

My use of diverse and interactive; clinical and holistic therapeutic approaches have proven to be most effective in addressing issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, substance use/abuse, relationship issues, parenting concerns and diminished coping skills. A patient centered approach allows me to most efficiently utilize my clinical training. I am COMMITTED to being available to support underrepresented, misrepresented and marginalized populations in their therapeutic journey by validating experiences of trauma and abuse experienced due to racism, biases and prejudice. Supporting women of color who have found themselves in spaces or situations where they have been victimized by systematic oppression, inequality, and intergenerational trauma is also of utmost importance to me.

My clients are adults, couples, children, and adolescents who are dealing with major issues that have ground their lives to a halt, as well as individuals who feel stuck in their life for reasons that they may not yet understand or be able to articulate. They may describe feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, tearful, and disconnected from themselves. While therapy can feel like an overwhelming step, it is a brave step towards claiming, or perhaps, reclaiming your life, and it helps. Parents can feel more empowered, couples can feel more connected, and children and adolescents can feel better about themselves and their futures. Life can present us with a myriad of struggles and we each react to these struggles both uniquely and generally. WHO I WORK WITH ADULTS & COUPLES In adults and couples the struggles might be different. Depression, anxiety, unspoken trauma and unrevealed negative feelings can take their toll on a marriage, a family and the individual. Thoughts and feelings can affect the perception of ourselves in a negative way and manifest in a variety of unhelpful thoughts, moods and habits. The painful consequences of depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, and relationship issues can affect our jobs, families and relationships and most importantly how we feel about ourselves in our daily lives. CHILDREN & ADOLESCENTS In children and adolescents natural developmental changes can seem unsettling and confusing. If compounded by relationship issues with peers, parents, and teachers it can result in anxiety and depression for the child as well as the parents or caregivers. Often children and adolescents dealing with anxiety and depression are the result of family issues, negative body image, confusion about their place in their world and other negative feelings. In children and adolescents sometimes these struggles can manifest in more than just depression and anxiety but through thoughts or actions of self-harm and phobias. MY APPROACH I specialize in treating adults and adolescents with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, and mood and personality disorders. My approach is informed by Humanistic and Existential Therapy, Attachment Theory, and principles of Cognitive-Behavioral therapy. I specifically use CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) to address negative thinking, compulsive behaviors and phobias. Whether it is working with couples, adults, children or adolescents my approach is always the same, to meet the patient where they are through compassion and honesty. I believe in being direct but supportive and void of any judgment or condescension. This approach allows for the formation of a strong therapeutic bond between myself and couples, families or individual clients and lays the foundation for the transformative process to begin to take shape. My clients have shared that they are often surprised by how comfortable and easy our work together can feel. As clients feel more comfortable, they are more able to explore the deeper reasons for seeking therapy, they are more able to articulate what changes they wish to make, and then together we are more able to build effective strategies to help clients attain the lives they want. Therapy is a collaborative process, and we work as a team to treat the issue. MY BACKGROUND I am licensed in Connecticut with 8 years of professional work experience. I received my Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology with a Specialization in Children and Adolescents from Antioch University Los Angeles. I did my post graduate clinical work at Family Service Agencies in Los Angeles and Connecticut where I worked as a school based therapist in the day while seeing adults, couples and families in the evening.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some commonly asked questions can be found below.

How much does a therapist cost?

Mental health professionals can differ in price. Forbes found that the average cost of in-person therapy in the US is around $100 to $200 per hour. Pricing can also vary based on your location. 

BetterHelp offers payment plans of $60 to $90 per session, charged monthly in a lump sum. You can also take advantage of this pricing on one of BetterHelp's sister platforms, like ReGain for couples or TeenCounseling for teens aged 13 to 19.

Many therapists may be upfront about their pricing and whether or not they take health insurance from the beginning. Additionally, some in your area may offer a sliding scale plan to allow those with lower incomes to pay less for therapy. However, services online can often save individuals a few hundred dollars per month.

How do I know if I should get a therapist?

Mental health services and mental health providers may help you navigate various concerns. You do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy; You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general advice. A counselor may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Mental health issues don't always present as a crisis. Many professionals provide talk therapy and support for life transitions, skills learning, relationship problems, or life coaching. Online therapy sessions in Connecticut can allow clients seeking therapy to experience professional help through video, phone, or live chat sessions without commuting to an office.

Does insurance cover therapy?

Different counseling services can vary in cost. Therapists must apply to accept insurance through insurance companies, which may take time and money, so not every therapist offers services through insurance. If you cannot find a therapist that accepts your plan, BetterHelp may be cheaper than visiting an in-person therapist.

Is online therapy safe?

Online therapy through BetterHelp and its sister platforms is safe. Therapists are licensed, experienced, and vetted before being contracted with the platform. If you experience any concerns with your therapist, you change your counselor through the platform or app at any time.
