My Approach to Helping

Many things can bring a person into therapy. However, finding a therapist you can easily connect with is a key predictor of success in therapy. I value the therapeutic relationship and take great care to provide a place of warmth and safety where you can explore your experiences. I relish the chance to earn your trust.

I use a variety of modalities, tailoring my approach to your needs. My most important tool is empathy, which gives you the safety you need to explore your inner world, so that you can better understand how your experiences affect you. We will also collaborate to determine how success in therapy would look for you and make sure we set measurable goals for desired outcomes.

I use an attachment-based perspective. This approach can help people with a variety of challenging life experiences, particularly those that leave yo feeling alone or isolated. I understand the importance of close connections, and work to help you nurture more of these connections.

If you would like to speak with me personally, please contact me so that I can learn more about your counseling needs. You've taken this step to reach out, be sure to call now.

More Info About My Practice

To help you access the quality services you need, I offer a sliding-scale fee. My rates range from $65-$150 per session. Please contact me at the number above for more information.

I do not bill insurance companies directly, but I do provide a "billable receipt" for you to submit to your insurance company. I accept credit cards, cash and check for payment. While my clients pay me at the time services are rendered, many of them utilize their insurance company benefits for my services.
