Billing and Insurance:

I charge $165 for a 50 minute session. If you would like to meet for longer, this can be arranged, and will require an additional payment.

I perform psychological testing, to establish diagnoses (e.g. anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder) and to identify the presence of ADHD. Psychological test batteries require a $700 initial payment, due at the first appointment. The remainder of the balance is due at the time the report is provided. A complete psychological test battery, including a thorough diagnostic interview, a brief cognitive evaluation, objective and projective personality assessment, and objective rating scales is $1,500.

My Approach to Helping

The holiday season is upon us. You tell yourself that this year will be different from the last and you will put out your best efforts and buckle down. You say to yourself that you are needed by your family, your friends. The holiday invites have already gone out and you know others will expect you to be there. You think about going, about what will change. Then you find yourself stuck. Maybe its feelings of sadness or apathy, or worried thoughts, fear and anxiety. Whatever the reason, you find it hard to move forward and achieve the goals you have. If this is something you have faced in the past, and face in the present, counseling may be helpful.

In my nine years of experience in the field, I have encountered many similar stories. It is important to know you are not alone or the only one facing anxiety, fear, depression or sadness. In seeking therapy, you are looking to be understood, heard and helped. My approach to therapy involves an initial assessment session, where we work to identify what the problem is, how you want to address it, your history, and your expectations for therapy. In subsequent sessions, we will work to explore your life and how you have managed your problems in the past. I typically approach our sessions conversationally, which I have found helpful to navigate the initial sessions. Through it, my role is not to judge, but to help understand. My hope is that through working together, the goals that you set in therapy, you achieve.

In addition to counseling and psychotherapy, I also offer comprehensive psychological testing. I have a great deal of experience in working with personality assessment and psychodiagnostics. I offer psychological test batteries that include the MMPI-2, MCMI-IV, Rorschach, Thematic Apperception Test, various intelligence scales and achievement tests, and numerous rating scales. I am experienced in assessing for ADHD, as well. If you have specific concerns about your mental health or emotional functioning, have been referred by a treating clinician for psychological testing, or have been in therapy for sometime and feel that you are going nowhere, I might be able to help.
