Founded in 1997 by James R. Varrell, MD, and part of CFG’s Health Network, Center for Family Guidance, PC is dedicated to providing the highest quality behavioral health services to individuals, families and organizations.

We do this through the experience and expertise of our staff, the convenience and accessibility of our practice and through an uncompromising commitment to the principle that success in relationships is the foundation on which personal well-being can be achieved. In addition to providing out-patient services, Center for Family Guidance, PC (CFG) provides behavioral health services to hospitals, IOP, PHP, schools, community service organizations, residential services and more.

Center for Family Guidance, PC has been a pioneer of telebehavioral health in New Jersey since 1999. Founder and Medical Director Dr. Jim Varrell provided the nation’s first commitment via telepsychiatry and has since been one of the nation’s top advocates for the appropriate use of telepsychiatry to increase access to care. Shortly thereafter, InSight Telepsychiatry was founded in 2008 after providing services for over a decade as a component of Center for Family Guidance, PC and its partner companies CFG Health Systems, LLC and CFG Health Network.

Today, InSight, the largest telepsychiatry service provider organization, has moved on to a new partnership with new financial investors- Harbour Point Capital. InSight and the CFG Health Network will continue to work together to offer onsite and telehealth services to partners in a variety of care settings.
