My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, native French speaker, fluent in Spanish and Italian. I have considerable training and experience working with adults, adolescents and children of all ages. I am additionally trained in trauma resolution (Progressive counting...), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, attachment theory and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I have been practicing for more than 10 years in numerous clinical, school and medical environments, so I can be a strong source of support for advocacy and referrals needs. I believe in the importance of a trusting therapeutic relationship as a base to provide the needed safe haven for change. I am a goal-focused, strength-based, person centered, and solution-focused therapist. I utilize mostly evidence based practice therapy but my approach is holistic.
I am solely focused in my private practice so you can expect me to schedule sessions at convenient times for my clients, and being accessible and flexible for them. Because I do not work for an agency, I can screen my clients to make sure we are the best fit for each other and I feel we will not be, I will refer you to someone that more suitable. Also I am my own boss, so you will enjoy privacy and your file will only be seen by me.

More Info About My Practice

I charge a very reasonable flat fee (I take cash, checks or credit cards) which is sometimes better that the insurance copays. But I will accept some insurances (Fidelis, BCBS,Univera, or email me) I will also fill out paperwork to submit to your insurance company. I choose to work with a limited number of insurance companies as they request a diagnosis that will stick with you . I understand that paying privately for session may be more costly but I can negotiate the fees.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am adept at helping people realize where they are "stuck" and reframing their worldview to move ahead in their lives, regain some self esteem and feel inspired and motivated again.

I enjoy working with adults and children, qualified play therapist.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

It is a form of support for people who want to heal, I help them by pointing out their strengths and with changing their inner view. I can help them learn some more positive coping skills. I provide a self space for my clients to express their emotions and feel validated with no judgement.
