My Approach to Helping

Thank you for choosing our practice! Congratulations on taking the first step towards wellness! Some people seek counseling for long term problems, to check in and refresh coping skills, or for extra support getting through life's ups and downs. No matter what brought you here, let's get working on it! We have a client centered approach and take each person's individual personality and life experience into account as we work together to form treatment goals in attainable steps. We will work with you or your family as a team to help meet your treatment needs.

More Info About My Practice

Our group currently accepts UPMC, OptumUnited, Aetna, Cigna, Highmark BCBS, MH Net, and InterGroup insurances. All other insurances will utilize Out Of Network benefits. Please confirm your coverage prior to session. We also have a lower cost rate with our Master's Level therapists. Payments for session or copays are due at the time of service and can be paid with cash, check, or credit card. Unfortunately we cannot accept UPMC for you, Gateway, or other Medicare plans at this time.
