My Approach to Helping

I have immediate openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) and would be honored to support you during this time of uncertainty.
It takes courage to reach out for help and I am honored to serve in a role that can provide such assistance. Having walked the path of therapy from an early age myself, I am familiar with the challenges and benefits it can bring. My own positive experiences as a client were what drew me to become a psychotherapist myself; the motivating thought was and continues to be: \"I would like to help others in the ways I have been helped.\" I find this work deeply engaging, with new frontiers to explore opening up consistently along the way. It is very touching to be invited into the inner worlds of the people I work with and to navigate this terrain together in ways that promote growth and healing of the body, heart, and mind. If you\'re interested in joining me in this endeavor, please let me know!

More Info About My Practice

I can provide an automted monthly receipt to submit to your insurance company for services provided by an out-of-network provider (superbill). If you have a PPO plan and would like to research your benefits, you can call your insurance provider and ask them the following questions: What is my deductible? How much of it has been met, if any? Once the deductible has been met, what is the allowed amount per therapy session (if available)? Once the deductible has been met, what percentage of the allowed amount will I be reimbursed?

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

Therapy can range from short-term treatment of 10 to 12 sessions; to mid-range treatment of 6 to 18 months; to long-term treatment of a few years or more. While I am occasionally asked for short-term work, my practice is predominantly of mid to long-term duration. My view of psychotherapy is of a collaborative process between therapist and client exploring the truth of the moment. I do not conceive of clients as "having problems" or "needing to be fixed." Simultaneously, I am sensitive to the distress that can often be a motivating factor behind engaging in therapy. I work together with you to address your goals and presenting issues and to help you lead a more fulfilling and enjoyable life. The relationship between therapist and client is important, and research shows that it impacts the outcome of therapy more so than the particular techniques applied. I encourage you to reach out to get a sense of whether we might be a good fit to work together.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

The Hakomi Method is a key treatment modality in my practice. The Hakomi Method is a body-centered approach that blends Eastern spiritual wisdom with Western psychological understanding, aiding in the transformation of limiting patterns and increasing one's sense of fulfillment. I also employ The Work of Byron Katie - a simple inquiry practice into stressful thoughts that can be profoundly liberating. Regardless of which techniques are being used, my work is somatic (body-oriented) and experiential - with attention to the here and now, i.e. what is arising in this moment.
