My Approach to Helping
Who doesn't deal with anger, stress, and relationship problems in their life? I enjoy helping my clients work though these types of problems by helping them to change thoughts and behaviors, as well as finding new ways to cope. If a client has worked to change their thoughts and behaviors, but still find that life is not getting any better, then there will be further discussion regarding the potential use of medications. I believe it can be harmful to many clients if they start medications before addressing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in therapy.
More Info About My Practice
Sessions are $125 for self pay. I also take Anthem (Blue Cross/Blue Shield). If you wish to use another insurance, I will give you a billing form to submit to your insurance company. Remember, self pay increases privacy and control over your visits.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Be proactive, instead of reactive. If you wait until things get even worse, it will be harder to fix. What do you have to lose by trying therapy?
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
I always get myself into trouble when I do not consult with others about major life decisions. Talking about your thoughts out loud is often surprisingly helpful. It actually takes strength to consult with others and possibly come to conclusions you do not wish to draw!
