My Approach to Helping

I believe that each of us attempts to become the person we are capable of being, often in spite of great obstacles, lack of relational support and difficult circumstances. I believe that therapy provides you a safe setting and the unique opportunity to become the authentic person you want to be and achieve the fulfillment you seek.

I believe therapy provides you with the opportunity to overcome the obstacles from the past & take greater control of your present and future. I have made it my vocation to support persons like you in transforming adversity, hardship, trauma, challenges and limitations into strengths, assets and opportunities for growth and new life. I have done so in diverse settings including a psychiatric hospital, medical hospital, religious setting and in private practice. I see therapy, not as me helping you, but as a unique relationship supporting you in the process of helping yourself. I would be honored to join you on your journey toward wholeness.

More Info About My Practice

My standard fee is $150.00 per session & I accept payment from few insurance companies. If you do not have insurance coverage, I will meet with you to explore what you need from therapy, determine if I can provide that service and then adjust the fee to a level that is manageable within a range of $125. If that is still prohibitive,I will gladly refer you to other therapists. I accept payment via Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have extensive experience working with couples dealing with marital, blended family, parenting & eldercare issues; individuals who are dealing with depression, anxiety, anger management, post-traumatic stress syndrome, life transitions, relational problems, career changes, religious abuse, spiritual disillusionment or disconnection, sexual orientation, grief & loss & chronic illness. I have extensive experience working with military personnel and their families & persons with diverse cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations and religious or nonreligious backgrounds.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy can be helpful to you like a good mirror that you use at certain points of your day. It enables you to see & know yourself more completely in ways not otherwise available to you. It does not criticize, pass judgment, give advice or make decisions for you. Instead it empowers you to decide what to do with what you learn there and then act based on those decisions. Like the mirror, the therapist strives to be an accurate relational mirror that facilitates self-awareness & understanding which empowers you to become what you want to be. Unlike the mirror, the therapist provides a trained, understanding, empathic and encouraging presence to support you in the process.
