Therapy and Counseling in New Jersey

The Institute for Personal Growth - IPG Counseling - is the leading provider of effective, compassionate psychotherapy and counseling in New Jersey. We have more than three dozen therapists and counselors at three locations: Highland Park, Jersey City and Freehold, with new offices in New York City. To provide convenience and flexibility to our clients, we offer day and evening hours six days a week. Although we are not in-network with insurance companies, we do accept assignment of benefits.

Psychotherapy Services

We provide individual, child, family, marriage, and couples counseling in our NJ and NYC offices for problems ranging from depression and anxiety to addictions, marriage and relationship conflict to life crises. IPG can provide the therapist or counselor best matched to your needs. In addition to offering general psychotherapy and counseling services, we are the largest provider of AASECT-certified sex therapy in New Jersey and surrounding regions. Since our founding in 1983, IPG therapists have been recognized for their expertise and work with LGBT and other sex and gender-diverse communities.

Supportive New Jersey Counseling

The majority of our clients come for our general services, for our expertise and experience working with individual, family, child and relationship needs, all provided in a caring, supportive environment. Whether you're suffering from trauma and PTSD, work or family problems, stress or are just going through a difficult period, our therapists have the experience and training to help.
