My name is Ron Newman, PhD, although many clients simply call me “Dr. Ron”.

I am a Psychologist based in Southern New Jersey, currently doing Teletherapy through a private video platform.

My goal is to provide compassionate care to my clients, seeking to speak wisdom and truth into their lives in practical ways that help promote emotional and relational healing and hope.

I hope to share some practical wisdom with you which I have gained through over 40 years of full time work in the mental health field.

Teaching Experiences

I’ve conducted hundreds of workshops, seminars, and courses for community and religious organizations on various topics, including Finding Balance in Parenting, Dealing with Addictions, a Transformational Coping Model for Managing Stress, Family Enrichment and Communication, Developing a Healthy Self-Concept/Biblical Self-Esteem, Lay Counselor Training, Finding Balance in our View of Homosexuality, etc.

I’ve taken annual mission trips to Latin America (Peru, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, and Ecuador in the past) to teach at conferences and schools since 1993.

I’ve taught courses for twelve years at the Urban Bible Training Center in Atlantic City, NJ, including courses on Ethics, Biblical Counseling, Marital Counseling, and Leadership.

I’ve participated in numerous radio and television interviews in the USA and in Latin America.

What to Expect

Since I am only doing telehealth or videotherapy, as it is called, our initial contact will be via telephone (call 609-567-9022). I usually have a waiting list, but speak with everyone who calls to see if my services are a “match” for what you are looking for in a therapist. I will then email you the intake package, and upon completion and return to me, we can work out a mutually agreeable time to “meet” via videoconferencing on a confidential platform. Currently I use Doxy.me. I would send you the link usually the day before our scheduled appointment. Clicking on the link will put you in my virtual waiting room.

I will meet you and bring you into my virtual office at the scheduled time. The first appointment is considered an assessment or intake interview, and it is a time to get acquainted with one another. I typically go through many assessment questions to learn as much as possible about your background, areas of stress in your life, and the problems for which you are seeking my assistance. I typically formulate a treatment plan by the end of the first or second session.
