Billing and Insurance
I am an in-network provider for:
Fees: Initial Session: 60 minutes; fee is $150
Individual Session/Couples Session/Family Session: 45-50 minutes; fee is $135
I have weekend and evening appointments available. Call me to discuss what day and time would be most beneficial for you and your needs.
I enjoy being able to do a free 15 minute phone consultation with all new clients. This allows for numerous things to happen: it allows me to know the issues that you're currently struggling with, it gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have, and it gives us a chance to start to get to know each other and build rapport, and in the process, to see if we'd be a "good fit". And if by chance we're not a good fit (that does happen -- not everyone is a good fit for everyone), it allows me to help you find someone else who would be better able to help you.

You're trying to cope with an addiction, an eating disorder, or being in an unhappy relationship. You've been dealing with the same behaviors, same thoughts, and same cycles over and over again and you're tired. You're frustrated and discouraged. You've made changes and they didn't last; you ended up going back to doing the same things you did before. You know you have a problem and want to change. You want to get sober, to stop hating your body and stop bingeing/bingeing and purging, and you want to be happy and content in your relationship. But you believe that your life has gotten too chaotic and you feel powerless. And besides, you have no idea where to start.
I help people restore balance and value themselves when addictions, eating disorders, or relationships have taken over their lives and left them powerless. Working together, we will re-gain control of your life, and you will learn to cope with and manage your life in ways that specifically work for you, how to identify and express your feelings, increase communication with your family and friends, improve life satisfaction, and increase your understanding of how your past impacts your present. My philosophy and approach to therapy is simple:
1) To always put your needs first: protecting your confidentiality is essential. Your sessions are always about you, what you want to discuss, and accomplishing your goals.
2) To provide a place where you feel safe and comfortable: you will be in a nurturing environment, free of judgment and criticism. A place that encourages recovery. And a place where you feel understood and heard.
3) To find ways that work for you that allow you to cope and manage your life: by exploring your life patterns, we're able to see what does and doesn't work for you. Then we'll identify the factors which are contributing to you feeling stressed, angry, unhappy, depressed, anxious, or frustrated (and other feelings as well). Afterward, you can then decide what you want to change and we'll find it.
4) to never stop encouraging you to value the extraordinary person that you already are. To always remind you of your many gifts and strengths.
It's all about you. It's about what you'd like to accomplish and how I can make that happen for you.
Because you have a voice, you matter, and you can do anything.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I thoroughly enjoy helping others in general, but specifically love helping people living in chaos make the change to living a life that is manageable. It's amazing to see someone choose to take care of themselves, the changes that follow, and the growth that occurs. The light in their eyes is irreplaceable for those that realize that they may not have had choices as children but as adults, they not only have choices, but they have a voice to make all decisions about their life.
My Role as a Therapist
My role as your therapist is not to tell you what to do or how to do it, unless your safety is at risk. I'm here to help you resolve issues and to cope with life stressors and feelings in healthy ways. Sessions also focus on helping you understand how your upbringing impacted your life and how it might be affecting your life now, determining if you're repeating unhealthy life patterns, improving communication with the significant people in your life, and increasing your knowledge of the differences between men and women and how they impact romantic relationships.
Basically, my role is to help you be the best you that you can and want to be.
What I Usually Need to Know to Help
The more information that you're willing to give me about you, the better I will be able to help you. Of course it helps to know as much as possible about the issues that brought you to counseling, significant past experiences, how you were raised by your parents or caregiver, and any abuse you might have experienced.
I know that talking about the abuse you experienced is something that you would probably like to avoid because it can be and often is extremely painful. Please understand that the goal of you sharing this information with me is not to cause you pain; I would never want to intentionally nor unintentionally hurt anyone or impose pain on anyone. Having this information gives me a better understanding of you and why you are the way you are.
I know that it will take you time to trust me and tell me certain things. I'm okay with however long it takes for you to feel comfortable to trust me with your information.
