Our Services

Individual Therapy for Adults

Clients work one-on-one with their therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. Therapists guide and structure sessions to deepen understanding, identify obstacles to goals, and solve problems.

Individual Therapy for Children and Adolescents

As children and adolescents grow, they develop the social skills and emotional intelligence necessary to lead healthy, happy lives. When they experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their ability to thrive, they may benefit from the supportive outlet that therapy provides.

Couples Therapy

Differences in communication styles can lead to misunder-standing and eroded empathy and intimacy. Therapy can often help couples re-establish intimacy, improve communication, and foster mutual respect and closeness.

Family Therapy

We work closely with families of all backgrounds and configurations to support and foster empathy and communication. Family therapy views change in terms of the systems of interaction among family members and emphasizes relationships as an important factor in psychological well-being.

Group Therapy

We offer support groups for those who want to dialogue with others in a group setting. The goal of groups is to create a safe, open and trusting community where individuals share experiences, receive support and collaborate around ideas. The interpersonal relationships developed will allow participants greater insight into their identities, the opportunity to  belong to a group that understands their experiences firsthand and the option to gain skills to better handle stress, develop problem-solving techniques and cope with change and loss.

Insurance and Fees

All therapists at New Light are in-network with the following plans:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO

  • Cigna PPO

  • Aetna PPO

  • United Healthcare PPO

New Light also accepts Medicaid (including YouthCare) and we offer a sliding scale for those who are uninsured.

Prior to your first appointment, a client intake packet will be emailed to you. This will include an explanation of fees and charges and a credit card consent form so that we have a credit card on file. At the end of each week, the card will be charged for outstanding fees due, including session fees, co-pays, and late cancellation or missed session fees.
