Billing and Insurance

I am an in-network provider for:

  • Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Medicaid
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield

Fees: My fee is $150/session (about the cost of your car mechanic). For insurance coverage I am an out-of-network provider; check with your insurance company to determine your degree of coverage. I take all major credit cards. I will treat veterans using ART at NO COST for service-related trauma. I have a limited number of sliding-scale sessions available for clients who have limited financial means.

You are the ultimate expert on yourself. Since healing only happens when we feel safe, I am here to support and guide you as we explore your issues together. I offer talk therapy grounded in Gestalt and Core Energetics methods. I am also certified as a Master Therapist in the use of Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), a brief intervention which is particularly effective dealing with trauma and its aftermath. I can heal most PTSD in one session for any single traumatic event. Better yet, you'll know in the very first session if it will work for you - you don't have to commit to months of therapy before you find out if it's working for you!

New: I was recently interviewed on Rutland public television by Leni Preston for her "PTSD Today" show. You can watch it here:

More Info About My Practice

Director Vermont PTSD Treatment Center

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

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This can be caused by a single incident (motor vehicle accident, physical or sexual assault, emotional abuse, military event) or a continuous stressor over time such as a hostile work environment, childhood family discord, or the stress of being a caregiver over a long period of time.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

If you're interested in treatment for PTSD you should remember this about ART:
1. The federal government recognizes this as an evidence-based practice.
2. It doesn't require much talking. Many people who have trouble talking about their feelings, men especially, can benefit from this effective treatment method.
3. If it's going to work for you, we will know in the very first treatment session. No commitment to months of therapy without being sure that it will work!
