More Info About My Practice

I am paneled with most insurance companies and will file for my clients. I schedule my own sessions with my clients, so that they feel supported from the first moment they make their first call to schedule an intake session. Coming for counseling can be daunting, so I do everything I can to make the process comfortable. Prospective clients- I will be out of office on vacation from July 6-17th. Please feel free to leave a message and I will contact you when I return to the office on July 20, 2015. Thanks for reaching out!
