I founded SelfWorks, a group private therapy practice, in large part due to my belief that all of us have innate strengths and resiliency that often go untapped. The name SelfWorks was created to share our belief that in the right environment, with the right guidance, the self… works. Therapy can be like an aspirin, a treatment for the relief of your pain and symptoms. Therapy can also be approached like a vitamin, to promote continued health, while helping your mind flourish and thrive. Since it can be used in these ways, we strongly believe there is never a bad time to start therapy. Our licensed psychologists and social workers are sensitive and passionate about their therapeutic responsibility to you and want to help individuals from all backgrounds achieve their best self. At SelfWorks, you have the benefit of a private, confidential therapy with the added advantage of an interdisciplinary consult team that comes together weekly to learn, grow and expand their expertise.

Psychotherapy is not easily described in broad statements and our approach is tailored to your individual needs. You will talk about your concerns, wishes, needs, and intentions, both now and in the past. There are many reasons why this is important and essential to the therapeutic process. Ordinarily, people don’t talk about lots of things because they are too personal, or because they would hurt other people’s feelings, or for some other similar reasons. You will find that with us, you will be able to talk about anything that comes to your mind. The problem most people have in making decisions is not that they don’t know enough, but that they never have had the opportunity of talking things over with someone who doesn’t try to make their decisions for them. Talking about the past can help shed light on the relationships and experiences that have shaped you. You will draw connections between your past and present experiences that will bring about healthy thoughts, self-worth and a new perspective.
At SelfWorks, we know how hard it can be to make that initial call and will approach your questions and concerns with sensitivity. Helen Johnson, our intake coordinator, will schedule an intake appointment, as well as match you with a qualified therapist based on your goals, scheduling needs, therapist’s specializations and treatment approach. You can contact Helen at 917-727-7497.
We know that your time, in and outside, of therapy sessions is valuable, so we have designed a billing system geared toward efficiency. This system includes a convenient automatic payment option and electronic statements sent to your private patient portal for ease of organization and record keeping. We are well-versed in the complexities of insurance plans and happy to communicate with you and/or your insurance company when necessary. Whether you are using in-network or out-of-network benefits, you will have a dedicated billing advocate to make sure reimbursements are timely and your financial responsibility is known and clear. This boutique consultation service benefits our practice-patient relationships and takes one additional stress off your hands. You can reach our billing department for administrative and billing questions at email@example.com or 917-720-2764.
