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: I don't charge for the initial consultation, unless we do decide to work together, and I'd be happy to discuss my fees when we meet.
Although I'm not an in-network provider, you may be able to use your insurance, depending on your benefits.
You can check your coverage by contacting your insurance company, and asking:
- Do I have out-of-network mental health insurance benefits for psychotherapy?
- Is there a deductible, and if so how much?
- What is my rate of reimbursement?

The pressure of other peoples needs and expectations can sometimes make it difficult to tune into our own desires, and our inner worlds can feel like dark and mysterious places. Who are you? What is it you really want and need? And then how on earth will you go about getting it? These can seem like daunting questions, and even feel overwhelming at times. I see psychotherapy as a process that helps to shine a warm, and curious light on that inner world. It's my job to help you to begin listening more deeply to your own needs and impulses. This simple act of truly paying attention, begins a process of change that can open up possibilities for new healthier, more creative choices.

More Info About My Practice
I have a background in the arts, and specialize in helping performing and creative artists work though the many kinds of barriers that arise in doing their work.
In my work with couples, I use a cutting edge approach called the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). Developed by Stan Tatkin, PACT is a creative integration of attachment theory, affect regulation, and neuroscience. That's a fancy way of saying it helps couples to know more about how they unwittingly trigger each others anger, and fear - what pushes them apart, as well as how to help each other feel loved and safe - what pulls them close.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
To develop a greater ability to bring one's authentic self to a creative interaction with the world
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I feel so fortunate to have found work that gives me such deep satisfaction. To be with someone as they do the hard, courageous work of coming to know themselves, and to witness the growth that arises out of that process, a kind of blooming really, is such a privilege
