Empathy is the cornerstone of our practice.
A New Way Counseling and Psychotherapy
A New Way Counseling and Psychotherapy LLC was founded and established by Dr. Siobhan Berger in 2020 as a Private Practice. As the demands of the community increased, the practice expanded to a Group Practice in 2021.
At ANW, We believe our role in therapy is to assist you in accomplishing your goals and help to establish “a new way" to manage life stress, anxiety, depression, obsessions, loss, eating disorder, adjustment, and other areas which may be relevant to you. Together we will work to identify your specific needs, identify your goals, and work to achieve them. We identify collaboration to be the cornerstone of therapy, this is after all about you.
To support and educate on a new way of thinking, being, and living when managing Mental Health.
To be a leading Mental Health Practice, where clients feel supported, educated, and empowered to be their best selves.
How long does each therapy session take?
Individual therapy sessions are 45 minutes to 60 minutes long. If additional time is needed, your therapist will discuss alternative session lengths.
The initial intake appointment will be 60 minutes.
Do you accept insurance?
Yes. Most of our clinicians are credentialed with multiple insurance companies. Please be sure to notify us of your current insurance carrier and contact them prior to starting services to verify coverage. Commonly accepted plans include Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, UnitedHealthcare, and Quest Behavioral Health.
Is therapy confidential?
Yes and no. I am bound legally and ethically to protect your confidentiality and take privacy and confidentiality very seriously. If you are over the age of 18, it is your right to provide me permission to speak to a third party (e.g. school, physician, psychiatrist). Additionally, in New Jersey, minors aged 14+ also need to provide consent for treatment and for me to speak to third parties. At any time and without consequence, you have the right to revoke this permission. For minors (under 18), information is available to their parents upon request, and when it is beneficial to the child's well-being and treatment. In general, I am required, by law, to protect the confidentiality of who I treat. Without written consent from you and/or a parent/guardian, I cannot release information to another person. However, there are exceptions to that rule:
1. If you plan to harm yourself.
2. If you plan to seriously harm another identified person.
3. If child abuse, elder abuse, or dependent adult abuse is suspected.
If any of the above criteria are met, I am required to contact the appropriate authorities.
