Couples therapists and marriage counselors treat some of the same issues as other psychologists, such as depression and anxiety, substance abuse, and PTSD. But their work focuses on issues that are specific to their target group, the family. Some common issues that family counselors encounter are marital conflicts, adolescent behavior problems, domestic violence and issues related to infertility.
Long Island Counseling is an out-of-network provider. All patients are responsible for the fee at the time service is rendered. Insurance is explained here.
To become a mental health counselor or a marriage and family therapist, applicants typically need a master’s degree in psychology, clinical mental health counseling, marriage and family therapy, or a related mental health field.

The How to Become One tab describes how to prepare for a job in the occupation. This tab can include information on education, training, work experience, licensing and certification, and important qualities that are required or helpful for entering or working in the occupation.
At Long Island Counseling, we accept almost all credit cards. Due to the high cost and long delays in processing insurance claims, however, Long Island Counseling is exclusively an out-of-network provider and asks that you make payment at the time of service. Insurance claim forms are gladly provided for your submission.
