Leading NJ Psychotherapy Practice
The Institute for Personal Growth (IPG), founded in 1983, provides counseling and psychotherapy in New Jersey and New York City to people from all walks of life, concerning a vast number of issues and using a wide range of techniques and approaches in psychotherapy. We blend heart and mind to provide you with quality mental health services.

With offices in HIGHLAND PARK, JERSEY CITY, FREEHOLD and satellites in other locations, we are close to most of northern and south/central New Jersey as well as NYC. We accept most insurance and have affordable fees.

Our staff of therapists - psychologists and licensed clinical social workers - have significant experience, extraordinary professional qualifications and specializations in every conceivable issue and area of psychotherapy. As a result, we are one of New Jersey's most prominent and respected private mental health practices.

IPG provides compassionate professional psychotherapy that combines the best of heart and mind. "Heart" in treating you as an equal - your life goals guide our approach and your therapy. "Mind" because, within this caring environment, we employ the latest discoveries in brain science and holistic medicine. We take pride in keeping current with cutting-edge professional techniques, but we know technical skill can’t work alone - it requires a non-judgmental, compassionate connection between client and therapist.

We are also widely recognized for our trail-blazing work in the sex therapy field and are AASECT-certified sex therapists. But we do work with all kinds of people to provide our individual, family and relationship therapy services. We counsel kids, teens and adults, and we help with problems including stress and depression, couple counseling, low self-esteem, addiction, family turmoil and child behavioral problems. In addition, we are internationally acclaimed for our expertise on sexual minorities: gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender, as well as people in the leather, BDSM (kink), and polyamory communities.
