Q: What kind of people do you tend to work with? Most of our clients are people who are experiencing some trouble in their life (relationship difficulties, life transitions, school issues, depression, anxiety) or feel ready to move beyond some past issue or limitation to create a more fulfilling life. We are sensitive, open, and trained to work with people of all ages and any race, culture, religion, and sexual orientation.
Q. Is the information you find out about me private? We follow professional code of conduct standards and state guidelines regarding privacy. All information is held in the strictest confidence. We will not release any information about you without your written permission. At times, it is helpful for us to speak to another professional, such as your primary care doctor or a psychiatrist, but to do that we would need to discuss it with you first and get your permission. There are, however, rare exceptions to confidentiality, as mandated by law. These exceptions include situations when someone is a threat to him/herself or others, or when there is an indication of suspected child abuse, dependent adult or elder abuse. Q: When do you see clients? At this time, therapy sessions are conducted by secure video-chat or phone in light of safety precautions during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our office is located in Red Bank, NJ at 316 Broad Street -- Monday through Saturday, and we will return there when we can. Dr. Stein also sees patients at Hackensack Meridian Health Riverview Medical Center.
Q: How often would I come in? We prefer to see people weekly. Our experience is that this provides the best momentum for creating and sustaining change in people's lives. Once we have gained momentum, we're happy to change to every other week.
Q: How many sessions would I see you? We see most clients between anywhere from 10 to 25 times, though the duration of therapy is up to you. It depends greatly on your goal, the complexity of the situation, and your readiness to change.
Q: How long does a session last? The initial consultant lasts about 60 minutes. Subsequent mental health therapy sessions run about 45 minutes. Pre-bariatric and Spinal Stimulator surgery evaluations are two hours long. Neuropsychological examinations range from 4 to 8 hours.
Q: What is your fee? What forms of payment do you accept? How does this work with my insurance? Your first phone call is free (approximately 15 minutes). Please refer to our Fees & Insurance page for session charges.
