More Info About My Practice
I am an in network provider for Aetna PPO, Tricare, and Managed Health Network (MHN). For PPO carriers that I am not an in network provider for, I can provide you with an invoice that you are able to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. I do have a sliding scale. I appreciate that people have different economic situations and I take that into consideration.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I am specifically trained in treating anxiety disorders in children, teens, and adults. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which involves challenging the negative thinking patterns that contribute to your anxiety and replacing them with more positive, realistic thoughts. For teens and adults with anxiety, I have used this approach to successfully treat generalized anxiety, panic attacks and social anxiety. For children with anxiety, I use an excellent program that teaches cognitive behavioral techniques (on a kid's level) through role-playing and other fun activities including art and play therapy. This has successfully helped children with problems such as separation anxiety, school phobia, generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety.
Another area of my expertise is helping parents with child discipline and behavior issues. In my work with families, goals often include improving interaction and communication between the parent and child and helping parents to establish a system of rules, rewards and consequences.
I am also highly experienced in helping women with life transitions. Whether it be dealing with the loss of a relationship, the challenges of being a new mom or dealing with a career change, I can help you see these transitions as an opportunity for positive growth and change. It is important to remember you do not have to face these challenges alone.
My Role as a Therapist
I see my role as therapist as a supportive coach. Whether I am helping you with parenting challenges, relationship struggles, or career difficulties, my approach is encouraging, non-judgmental and positive. I help you find those strengths that you may have forgotten that you had and support you in reach your goals and attaining the changes that you desire.
