During my years of both private practice and inpatient psychiatric care I have learned that many people need a caring, compassionate, and experienced sounding board to better understand the issues in their life. My approach is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but is somewhat eclectic in that I want to be your coach and cheerleader so that you can experience a fully actualized self.

More Info About My Practice

My fee for an individual 50 minute session is $130. Couples sessions are $165. While I am credentialed with most health insurance companies, I am not "in-network" and considered an "out-of-network provider". With most plans your insurance company will reimburse you for a portion of the fee paid to me. Please check with your insurance plan to know what your insurance will cover.
