16 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a mental health professional practicing for the past 14 years. I have a vast educational background with a masters degree in genetics and computer science. I wasn't satisfied with my work and felt that I can only satisfy myself if I help others. Then I pursued a master's degree in psychology and further went for my PHD. This profession brings satisfaction for me because i get to interact with people and feel that I am making a difference in people's lives. My goal in life is to touch people's hearts in the worst of their times and bring out the best for them. I feel happy and satisfied when I see my clients grow. I put all my efforts into helping my clients reach their potential in personal growth and empower them. I don't believe in boundaries such as race, culture and religion. I feel equally empathetic for all human beings and want the best for everyone.

42 years of experience as a mental health therapist

My name is Keith Breiman and I've provided individual, family, and couples counseling for over three decades in private practice and in a variety of organizational settings. My earliest training was in Gestalt Therapy which both educated and heightened my cognitive, emotional, and affective sensitivity enabling me to be in the present moment with you. Since those early days, I've had extensive training and experience with other orientations (psychodynamic, cognitive behavior ...) and have incorporated how I practice from all of them, as well as from each client, couple, and family. I've learned that each therapeutic relationship brings a client(s) with a unique blend of strengths, problematic habits, blind spots, and individually-specific needs that are not being addressed successfully. My experience is that when treatment works, these areas are gradually and sensitively uncovered, and in that process, we will first work together as a team to provide you with a better understanding of your challenges and, then, collectively, create appropriate strategies to address them.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and congratulations on taking this step in self-care! Starting therapy can seem scary and intimidating, hopefully, soon, you'll understand how beneficial it can be. I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been practicing for approximately 23 years. After receiving my BA in Psychology from Ithaca College, I worked in a psychiatric hospital with all age groups, doing psychological testing, co-leading group therapy, and assisting in the intake process for new patients. I then earned my Masters in Social Work at Adelphi University and worked in the New York City Early Intervention Program. As much as I loved working with this population, I knew I needed to pursue my long-time interest of doing clinical psychotherapy. This led me to my work in community mental health organizations in New York, then New Jersey. In these environments, I was able to work with clients of all ages, presenting with a wide variety of concerns. I ultimately landed at my current position as a Clinical Director of a small, therapeutic school for grades 6-12 in Central New Jersey. Thanks to the clinical experiences I've had, I'm comfortable and familiar with many presenting problems including: Anxiety, Social/School Anxiety and Avoidance, OCD, Depression, Bipolar Disorders, Eating Disorders, those questioning Gender Identity, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Personality Disorders, self-injurious behaviors as well as suicidal ideation, Anger Management, and PTSD. I'm a firm believer that one approach does NOT fit all! After getting to know my clients and understanding their goals, I will incorporate different treatment modalities to fit their needs. People are complex; their needs are constantly changing, I see my role as being a flexible, non-judgemental, empathetic listener who will help my clients feel empowered and confident in their strengths and abilities. Please note that I typically answer messages/emails in the afternoons through approximately 7pm. I am not available on the weekends. I look forward to starting your journey with you!

Are you feeling empty, alone, detached, anxious or misunderstood? As an integrative psychotherapist, licensed in NY and NJ, therapeutic inquiry begins with the assumption that I know nothing about your life experiences or how you make sense of them. Through inquiry, attunement and involvement we will discover together where you have experienced early interruptions in significant interpersonal relationships and how it has impacted your sense of self and adult life. These interruptions and misses are often experienced as depression, anxiety, compulsions, fears or agitation and often interfere with a sense of self and the development of healthy adult relationships. I offer empathic understanding in the context of honesty and respect with a supportive therapeutic inquiry that provides the safety to drop defenses, to feel, to remember, to experience and to integrate all that you truly are and can become. This is the ongoing process of integrative psychotherapy. As a Clinical Social Worker I believe that ongoing supervision and training are a vital part of our professional development and continue to learn and grow through attendance at workshops, seminars and trainings. I look forward to hearing from you.

How to find a therapist for counseling in Frenchtown

Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, marriage, family issues, or other emotional challenges, feel proud that you have begun your search to find the mental health care services in Frenchtown that work best for you in order to begin your personal journey towards emotional healing with a therapist.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Frenchtown. Perhaps you're interested in narrowing your search for a psychotherapist that can offer psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), talk therapy, provide group therapy, marriage and family therapy for individuals or couples, or couples therapy. Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders. If you're still unsure or are new to counseling in Frenchtown, feel free to contact the provider via email to find out which methods they practice.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Frenchtown region and in the state of New Jersey. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Frenchtown or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns. A therapist may also provide a safe place and validation for clients experiencing emotional pain, or that simply want a psychological assessment. Verified providers can provide licensed marriage and couples therapy, tailor to individual needs, and create a therapeutic relationship as a National Certified Counselor.

There are all kinds of therapists working with clients today across the United States and in the greater Frenchtown area in different types of therapy, including:

  • CBT
  • DBT
  • Substance use therapy
  • Couples therapy

When you're ready to start your search and find Frenchtown therapists, have in mind what type of therapy you'd like your provider to be most experienced with and choose an experienced provider with a practice located near you in the city of Frenchtown, elsewhere in Hunterdon, or in the greater state of New Jersey.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Frenchtown area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Frenchtown therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Frenchtown due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Frenchtown may not take health insurance, some in the state of New Jersey may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of New Jersey you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Frenchtown?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Frenchtown therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Frenchtown therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Frenchtown therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Frenchtown therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in NJ, therapists may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 08825 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Frenchtown counselor?

Before seeing your Frenchtown therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Frenchtown.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, 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 feedback and advice from a therapist. A Frenchtown licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Frenchtown counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Frenchtown, New Jersey can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Frenchtown has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
