to ask this therapist for billing and insurance information.

Fees: I am an out-of-network provider. Our practice accepts out-of-network benefits and self-pay. Our fees range from $175-275 depending on the service offered, and we can offer reduced rates when feasible. Our billing team is happy to submit claims on your behalf directly to your insurance company so that you do not need to wait for reimbursement.

Our practice partners with Advekit, a billing service for our clients using their out-of-network benefits. If you are interested in utilizing your out-of-network benefits for therapy services, or are unsure whether your plan includes out-of-network coverage, we will coordinate with Advekit to determine whether you have coverage, and you will only be billed the portion you owe at the time of service. If you decide you would prefer to be self-pay or do not have out-of-network coverage, please feel free to contact our office to discuss reduced rates!

My Approach to Helping

I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds with various presenting problems. I prefer working with individuals who are struggling with various life issues, particularly life transitions. My work with adults focuses on the challenges they may experience in life. Some of these pertain to identity development, interpersonal conflicts, sexuality, relationship status, religious or spiritual beliefs, anxiety, depression, racial or ethnic identity concerns, low self-esteem, and stress.

I usually operate from a cognitive behavioral approach and I take into consideration the relational dynamic between the therapist and client in the room as well as the clients’ relationships in and outside of therapy. I work collaboratively with clients to set goals and have specialized training to work with clients of various religious backgrounds.

I completed a Master of Arts degree in Theology and Ministry and a Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree in Clinical Psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary. I also previously obtained a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and have been working in the n the mental health field for over ten years.
