My Approach to Helping

I offer a Sanctuary for those seeking someone who is willing to listen. I offer a different viewpoint for you to consider in the safe place I strive to create. When you walk into my office, you will be encouraged to share the who's, the what's, & the when's as you feel comfortable. We'll explore what goals you want to achieve, as well as what may be keeping you from achieving those goals. My passion is for you to see new sides to your own story, for it's in the doing so that we gain hope. 'Now this hope does not disappoint us,' because hope is what gives us the gumption to get up when we'd rather stay in bed with the covers over our heads. Hope is what can stir the smallest spark of flame of love left in a marriage. Or hope can give a widow the opportunity to envision a life beyond her grief. Come & see how my Sanctuary can Serve you.

More Info About My Practice

I am on a few insurance panels: BCBS, Cigna, though it is always important to check to make sure. I will file for you with other companies that are out of network if that is available. Ultimately though, the investment into therapy is on you and for you, and I hope that you will think of it that way. My fees run from $100- $140 per session.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love being a part of the change process in another person. Getting connected with each individual, hearing each story, gives me joy as I am truly into helping people. Seeing someone get an 'ah-ha' moment, that affects them in a positive way is such a thrill. I am so energized by the work that I do. I can come into the office feeling unmotivated or bummed out, and before the first person has left, my spirit has been lifted. Not that the work is necessarily easy, but because I feel I have been called to it, when I do it, I'm fulfilled.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

I think going to therapy means exactly the opposite of being weak or flawed. That's just the lie most people tell themselves so they don't have to look at their own inner stuff. It takes a very strong person indeed to walk into an unknown office and tell their story to a 'perfect' stranger. It takes even more strength and courage to look beyond the outer shell we present to the world & churn up the darker parts of the self to examine and modify that inner core, than it does to keep the status quo and not allow growth. Going to counseling does not necessarily mean that someone has a mental illness. It does mean that the person who takes those courageous steps will be glad eventually that they did.
