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 full fee is $120 per 50-minute session, and $160 for couples and families per 80-minute session. If you are an MFT intern or student, or have strenuous financial struggles please ask about sliding scale rates.

I also offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to help you make the decision if therapy is something you would like to pursue.

As a marriage and family therapist I believe that change is constant and change is inevitable. We each have an inherent drive that pushes us towards completeness and contentment. This drive pulls us in the direction of the unique individual we strive to be and towards a life that fulfills us. Experiences of pain, loss, abuse, or fear, take us away from this drive and often detour us from our path to wholeness. My hope is that I can be a guide in your healing process and help you become who you want to be and live a life that fulfills you.

My style of therapy involves supporting my clients through making meaning of the events in their lives. I integrate attachment, compassion, cognitive tools, and multi-layered reflection. My focus is always on providing you a safe and respectful environment in which you can grow.

My goal is not to save you from your pain or distress, but to walk alongside you as you learn to save yourself.

More Info About My Practice

People often seek out therapy when they are having a hard time managing something alone. It is one of those things that we tend to put off until the pain or struggle becomes too overwhelming.

Deciding to seek out therapy is not easy; there is often apprehension and uncertainty. Despite that cloud of fear, I encourage you to also listen to that voice inside that is telling you that there is still hope. Hope that this may be the right place to help you find the strength you need to overcome the hardship you are facing.

My Role as a Therapist

I view therapy as a collaborative process. I believe that you are ultimately the expert of your life. Through the courage to share your needs, the most change and growth can occur.

My goal is to help you find your inner strengths and empower you to feel in control of your life. I will challenge you to let go of the things that are keeping you stuck, and support you through the pain that comes with letting go.
