Roselle Park has been a community of firsts since the early 1900s. They were the first to get a poured concrete building based on Edison’s engineering design. They were also the first in New Jersey to get a licensed radio station, WDY. Like Roselle Park itself, everyone has a life full of firsts. Those firsts might be good or they might be bad, happy or sad, and sometimes it helps to have someone to talk to when firsts happen.

Whatever is going on in your personal or professional life right now, if you are unhappy or anxious, you should contact a counselor in the Roselle Park area today. They can help you examine what is going on in your life and help you face it with help so that you can overcome anxiety, stress and depression. Contact a therapist today.

Greetings prospective client, I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have experience working in both inpatient medical and psychiatric settings. I have worked mainly with teens and adults of all ages. I have been working in this field and providing counseling for about seven years. I mainly use a strengths-based approach as I am a big believer in someone being able to recognize the strengths that they have. I also believe in the importance of healthy living, as the mind relies on the body for good health and vice versa. In addition, I have a sports medicine background with a focus on behavioral change and empowering clients to take a whole-body approach to their health. It is not easy to ask for help or recognize that you need help, so I value anyone who makes the decision to seek counseling. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully, we can accomplish great outcomes together. All the best, Jasmine

From what I've observed personally, therapy is useful to anyone who is human. Why should you talk to a therapist instead of a friend or your mother? The difference is that therapists are expert listeners who do not judge, criticize, or contradict, but who want to hear everything you have to say and how you are feeling. You may want help discussing difficult thoughts and feelings or need guidance on particular issues, or you may not be sure how you feel. The therapy session offers a private, safe place where you can feel free to say everything. And if you have trouble talking, the therapist can help with that too. My mission is to offer that safe space where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment or criticism. Taking the first step to seek therapy takes courage. I’m here to support you in that process.

My approach includes using evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Buddhist Psychology.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! These words inspire us to look forward to a bright future, something we can count on as we move through life. But what happens when the life we hoped for slips out of our grasp? When our careers stall, or when our relationships go sour, or when we can’t shake off the effects of painful experiences? Since earning my MS in Clinical Counseling from Mount Mary University in Milwaukee, I have learned that each of us is full of talent and potential. We all have something important to contribute to the world. All we need is a way to discover the unique qualities, drives and passions that make us who we are. My approach to treatment is based on Solution Focused Brief Counseling. My goal is to help people find the strong, hopeful and capable parts of their personality and strengthen them in every day life. We do this first by exploring your key relationships and how they have impacted your life over time. Once we uncover your (not so hidden) strengths, we work together to improve your well being. My experience includes working with singles and couples, as well as men seeking career transition counseling. I have worked with people from all faiths, gender identity and sexual orientation. How I can be of service: If you looking for help: (1) building a better future, particularly in your career (2) overcoming relationship challenges, or (3) coming to terms with painful memories so you can move on, I look forward to working with you to help you meet those goals.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Roselle Park 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 Roselle Park 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 Roselle Park 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more.

You can also try a Roselle Park therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

A Roselle Park therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Roselle Park 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Roselle Park, 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.

Roselle Park 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?

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.
