Welcome to Long Island Mental Health Wellness Counseling PLLC, a private group therapy practice led by Megan Woodward, MA, LMHC, MBA. Our therapists and counselors are trained in Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy, and hold licenses to practice in New York State. Our team offers comprehensive expertise in Cognitive Behavioral therapy for mood and anxiety disorders, Co-Occurring treatment for mental health and substance abuse concerns, as well as Emotion Focused and Structured couples and family therapy. We take our time to learn about the individualized needs of our clients to ensure they are matched to the right provider and treatment model that supports successful therapeutic outcomes.
All prospective clients are asked to set aside about 15-30 minutes for an initial phone screen to learn in detail about what you hope to achieve from therapy and to gather more background information to determine if we are the right match for your needs. Upon completion of screening, clients are provided with an initial appointment time with their therapist. We strive to offer convenient times for individuals and families including evening and weekend appointments. We can also assist you with discussing insurance and financial information that is important to discuss at the screening. We participate in network with Cigna Behavioral Health, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield, MagnaCare, Health Republic, and Multiplan. We also accept out of network benefits and can provide assistance with determining your eligibility for coverage under your health insurance plan.
Our approach to counseling is based on scientifically supported methods, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, supportive interpersonal therapy, and solution focused therapy. You can learn more about the specific methods of counseling in this article about what counseling looks like.
