Billing and Insurance

I don't currently accept insurance, but I can provide documentation if clients wish to submit to an insurance company for "out of network" benefit coverage

Fees: My standard fee is $150 for a 50 minute session for individual or couples therapy. I offer a limited number of sliding scale appointments based on availability and need.

If you would like to submit for reimbursement from insurance I'm happy to walk you through the process.

Shoot me an email or give me a call! I provide a free phone consultation where you can ask any questions and get a feel for me.

Are you grappling with feelings of fear, doubt or shame that get in the way of your relationships and dreams? Do painful memories haunt you? Or are you seeking a safe place to explore yourself and contemplate how to move forward to create more richness in your life?

Welcome. I'm here to support you as you heal, grow and build a life that fulfills you.

As your therapist, I create a safe space for you to discover and speak your truth. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to acquire new skills depending on your personal goals for healing. I have a warm, active, and curious therapy style, and I pull from different therapeutic modalities depending on your personal needs. I love what I do and look forward to supporting you as you move through whatever is holding you back.

More Info About My Practice

I offer morning, day and evening appointments as well as video sessions when appropriate. I am more than happy to answer any questions, so please don't hesitate to reach out!

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

In addition to a generalist practice, I'm honored to provide specialized treatment for trauma survivors seeking healing and safety, and I provide trauma-informed therapy for individuals seeking recovery from eating disorders. I also have special insights into the needs of artists and creative professionals, and welcome artists and art students seeking additional support.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

I want to hear whatever you want to tell me, and I will never demand that you tell me something that you don't want to share. For some people, telling the story of what happened to them can lead to a greater sense of empowerment. Others may not know "the story," or may choose for other reasons to work on stabilizing before they share the details of what has occurred.
