Professional statement

Elisabeth Coffey is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New Jersey. She frequently works with professionals, many of whom have difficulty putting down their jobs and careers when it comes to building and enjoying their personal lives. She understands that the work-life balance is very important when determining how to live the life you want, and working on living a life in line with your personal values rather than continuing along with comfortable and established routines can be challenging. She will help you sift through all of the things keeping you too busy to work on changing anything and help you figure out where you can afford to pull back and want to.

Elisabeth has an office in Florham Park, NJ but can also see patients remotely. It is her goal to listen to clients, understand where they're coming from, and enable them to understand themselves, what they want that they don't have, and identify what is preventing them from achieving their goals.

Elisabeth realizes that there is much distraction from what we are feeling that it is nice to schedule a time and place once a week to allow for our feelings. She strives to provide a safe place to experience those feelings and work through them. She looks forward to helping you create meaning by putting everything into words and seeing the gifts in every experience and how they have shaped you into who you are.


Message to clients

My goal is to provide an environment that makes you feel safe and enables you to express yourself openly about anything that you need to talk about. It is so important to have at least one person in your life that you can talk to without being "on" or having to worry about what you say. I will strive to understand you and to help you understand yourself.
I am here to listen and support you through whatever you are going through and to work with you to see aspects of the situation that you may not be fully aware of. We will work on understanding your unique challenges and developing your hidden strengths. We all get stuck in patterns of behavior that could use some revision. We will work on your becoming conscious of the motivations behind your behaviors and determine healthier ways of meeting the needs that the behaviors are satisfying in the moment that get in the way of who you really are and what you truly want.

Therapist's note

I work with a company that will verify your insurance benefits and informs you of what your out-of-network coverage is.

Many people have out-of-network insurance coverage that makes the cost of seeing an out-of-network provider comparable to seeing someone in-network. If you don't know what your insurance company covers, you can't make an informed decision about who would be the best therapist for you.

They also provide a very easy way to file my out-of-network claims with your insurance (through an app.) They also assist if there are any difficulties with being reimbursed for claims submitted through their app. Let me know if you have any questions about this but this allows you to simplify the process of filing reimbursement claims with your insurance company.
