Helping Children, Teens, Young Adults, and Couples feel like their best selves again.
At Anchor Therapy, our mission as counselors is to help you, or your teen, feel relief from whatever stress you are struggling with now. Stress usually appears when something in your life has changed. This could be a change in your school performance, job performance, relationship problems, etc. Our goal is to be the person you can rely on to help you make it through this difficult time. You will have us every step of the way so that you feel fully supported. When you start to feel better, you will notice other areas of your life improving as well.
Feel free to contact us today to set up a free 15-minute consultation to see how we can help!
You are thinking:
You’re going through a difficult time right now- whether it is with yourself, your teen, or in your relationship
You’ve reached a point where you can no longer carry this stress all yourself
You tried several different things before this to help you get out of this and nothing has worked
You find yourself overthinking and overanalyzing your thoughts
You are not sure how to stop the self-doubt
You find yourself, or you teen, struggling in school or work
Your relationships with friends and family are changing
You are thinking you might be going crazy and that nothing will help you at this point
You can take a deep breathe now because you are in the right place.
How can a counselor help me?
Once you give yourself, or loved one, the gift of seeing a counselor - you will start to notice positive changes. As your psychotherapist, we will help build you up to be the best version of yourself. We will help you create realistic goals and get you to actually reach those goals. You will feel confident and ready to take on anything that comes your way!
What is the length of therapy treatment?
We are all looking to feel better right away. Coming in for counseling can help you get on that track to feeling better. Each person has a different outcome they want to get from therapy. Since you have your own specific goal, we cannot tell you an exact amount of sessions it will take to reach. In our professional experience, with a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) approach, we will typically spend about 3 months (or 12 sessions) to accomplish your goal. It is possible that after 3 months you will have more goals to accomplish and you will want to extend more sessions. We don’t have any set rules in therapy and we are aware things come up in life that add new stress that you may want to address.
What is online therapy?
At Anchor Therapy, we not only provide in-person sessions, but we also provide online (telehealth) therapy. Online therapy includes phone sessions and video sessions. We find that students, young adults, and new parents enjoy the flexibility of online therapy most. But anyone can utilize the flexibility of online therapy sessions. There is a lot of research out there that shows online therapy sessions are just as beneficial as in-person sessions are. And they can be done in the comfort of your own home! We are also much more flexible in our online therapy hours as well. You are welcome to have a combination of in-person sessions and online therapy. You can have a therapy session during your lunch break, in between studying at the library, or while you are on a work trip. The flexibility is endless!
Please note: We can only provide online therapy to New Jersey and New York residents as those are the states in which our psychotherapists are licensed.

Okay, I think I'm interested... now what?
The first step is to fill out the form below to set up a free 15-minute consultation call. This will give us a chance to get to know you and we can explain to you further how we can help you or your child. If we are a good fit then we will schedule an initial appointment. We provide in-person therapy sessions in Hoboken, NJ as well as online counseling sessions for anyone living in New York or New Jersey. If you are thinking of booking an evening or weekend therapy appointment: these are our most popular time slots so make sure to book before they are all full. Once we meet, you will see that therapy isn’t so scary and that it really is just a place for you to feel calm and comfortable to speak your mind. Counseling gives you an opportunity and the skills to work towards feeling better. If the therapy is for your child, your child will feel safe to express themselves through play and art.
