Hello, and a big welcome!

I appreciate your being here and taking the time to get to know a little more about me. I think it’s important that you’re as comfortable as you can be when choosing who you think may be of help;  I know I seek out as much information when I look for my own providers. Right now, my practice is focused on transpersonal (mind, body, soul) counseling weaving in all the skills and knowledge I have from a wide range of therapeutic modalities. 

After graduating with my Master’s degree in Social Work, I first worked in a variety of traditional medical health care settings from an acute inpatient hospital to a physical rehab facility, to nursing homes and home health and hospice settings. As I moved along my path, I was offered many wonderful opportunities to expand my career and keep on learning. By the time I was in my mid-20s, I was promoted and heavily involved in team development and management but always keeping myself involved with direct clinical care.  I went on to be the Director for many years of an outpatient mental health program. I spent time in each setting learning and experiencing all I could about what works, what doesn’t, and how to best serve each individual client that walked through our doors.

Given my love of learning and quest for needing to know that I was providing the best possible care for my clients, I became certified in DBT and attended training in many different areas and approaches picking up tools and skills I could share with my clients.

I also became aware that there was much more to healing than what we see on a physical and mental level. There seemed to be something lacking. Science is now backing this up.  That’s when I became certified as a Reiki Master Teacher as well as EFT practitioner. Working with the body’s energy system, I quickly witnessed healing on a much more profound and expansive level. In this part of my journey I began to learn more about energetic techniques and tools, and I found my way to being certified as a Vibrational Crystal Healer and Holistic Tarot Card Reader.

My extensive journey into healing has allowed me to have the honor and privilege of witnessing some pretty incredible change and growth in my clients. It really is a privilege for me, and one I don’t take lightly.

Right now, I am mostly an out-of-network insurance provider (read more about this below) and am happy to help you get reimbursed for your fee depending on what your plan covers. I do participate with Aetna.

I’d love to connect with you if you feel we may be a good fit. You can call me at 908.910.9353 or email me by clicking here.

All my very best to you always,

Beth

Why I Choose Not to Participate with Insurance

While I completely understand the value of insurance, and I was involved with insurance for many years, a few issues I found difficult to overlook.  For instance, when an insurance company pays for your sessions, they have the right to access your records. This can be an issue for many people who are concerned about their privacy and the true nature of confidentiality. It's been estimated that when working through insurance, on average, 14 different people are accessing your records. This isn't meant to scare you, but it is, I think worth being transparent about so you understand why this is a concern for some people. Insurance companies can also dictate your treatment even though they may not have the full picture of why you are needing and seeking services. They can determine how often I see you, how long I can see you, etc., and I don't feel an insurance representative without extensive training or the knowledge of you personally should dictate your treatment. This, of course, is my opinion.

I have a small group of clients I do work with because when you work with me, our work doesn't end after our office session is over. While you are practicing skills and integrating change, I spend many hours between our sessions developing your treatment plan, compiling and individualizing worksheets and other tools that are uniquely designed for you. The time I invest in you goes well beyond the time just spent in the office. I work with clients who are deeply invested in making sustainable change and are ready and willing to do the work involved.

I offer you extensive education, certification, training, and most importantly years of experience,  that I bring into each and every session.

I am mindful of the cost involved which is why I have kept my rate much lower than most, and so I can be fair and accessible.

If insurance is a must for you, this is why Kevin remains involved in most insurance panels. You do have the option of working with him if this is concern for you. We believe in offering a choice and work together for the greater good of all our clients.

About Out-of-Network Benefits

Many people have questions, or don't understand how out-of-network benefits (OON)  work. And I know this can be confusing! You aren't alone in that feeling. Many people think using out-of-network benefits is "difficult" or "confusing" so I hope to help you with this. OON benefits vary according to your individual plan. One thing to remember is once you start using them, you will oftentimes be reimbursed as we work together so the flow of money back to you will help offset the cost of our sessions. In other words. once processed, and depending on your coverage, the insurance company will send you a check directly to get reimbursed which helps offset your out-of-pocket costs and makes paying for future sessions a bit easier.

So how can you find out if and how your OON benefits work?

Call the Member Services phone number on the back of your card, and ask:

-Do I have out-of-network benefits?

-What is the rate I will be reimbursed?

-Are there any referrals or other limitations/deductibles that are part of my plan?

- Once I receive a receipt for services (I do provide you with an itemized receipt), how can I submit this to you for reimbursement? (Generally, there is a simple form you need to attach to the receipt with just your basic information, but again this can vary so please ask.)
