More Info About My Practice

Because I do not accept insurance, I will be able to provide assistance without a mental health diagnosis. I am the trained professional who can best determine treatment. I will also be more flexible regarding length of session and length of treatment because I am not bound by predetermined specifications that third party providers use.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Some people need clarity with a difficult situation or decision they need to make. Others have to spend more time working through childhood pain. Everyone is different. You may decide that two or three visits helps, others may need or want twice a week sessions for a year or two. I am here to help you decide what is best for you.
