Karen Freedgood is a psychotherapist in Morristown, New Jersey. Karen is “in-network” with United, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Cigna health insurance. She also accepts patients who are uninsured or covered by other plans (please see Q&A below).

Treatment philosopy

If you are feeling anxious, depressed, or struggling with other feelings that get in the way of happiness, good sleep, job performance, or life goals — you are not alone. You are unique. So is your journey to feeling better. My philosophy while working with patients is to create an empathetic, supportive, judgment-free atmosphere. Together we will develop a treatment plan rooted in time-tested therapeutic approaches but also personalized for your specific challenges, goals, and overall well-being.

Issues I can help with

I help patients from all walks of life. Common conditions may involve (but are not limited to):

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Difficult life transitions
  • College and career issues
  • Relationships
  • Stress management
  • Self-esteem and body image
  • Women’s issues, parenting and family

Update: As of March 2022, I am seeing patients both in-person and through telehealth

Special precautions are in place for COVID-19. The virus outbreak and related circumstances may be creating difficult challenges for you at work and in your personal life. It is important to me that you can access therapy safely, affordably and on a schedule that works for you.

  • Currently offering telehealth (online assisted therapy) through private, secure, easy-to-use technology.
  • Telehealth sessions are conducted over videoconference and/or phone with additional support available by text, phone or email when you need it.
  • In-person sessions are also available at my office across from Morristown Medical Center.

Question & answer

Q: What insurance do you accept?
Currently, United, Cigna and Blue Cross Blue Shield are accepted. I do my best to make therapy accessible to you — with or without insurance.

No insurance? High copays or deductible? For uninsured and underinsured patients, I currently accept direct payment, on a “sliding scale,” which means that patients with lower incomes (and other financial hardships such as job loss or reduced hours) are eligible for discounts. Please contact me to discuss flexible accommodations for your personal situation.

Q: Are you offering in-person appointments?
Yes, in addition to telehealth (virtual sessions) if it is more convenient for you.

Q: Where is your office located?
55 Madison Avenue is across from Morristown Medical Center, right by the ramp for I-287. Come up to the 4th floor and I will greet you in the waiting area at your appointment time.

Q: Do you work with patients outside the Morristown, New Jersey area?
Yes, patients can be located anywhere in New Jersey. Telehealth may not be the best solution in some cases. Please reach out to me and we will discuss your specific situation, treatment history, and other factors.
