My Approach to Helping

Every day, brings the opportunity to do what I am most passionate about - helping others. Since making the decision to begin therapy can be scary and difficult, it is extremely important that people know they are genuinely cared for and have someone committed to walking beside them every step of the way. Therapy offers an opportunity to serve as a support system and resource guide in which knowledge, thoughts, and ideas are continually shared. While walking side by side, we work together to create an environment that is filled with safety, acceptance, genuineness, compassion, empathy, and humor.

More Info About My Practice

Presently, I accept the following insurance plans: Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Humana, and United Healthcare.

For those not on the aforementioned insurance panels, I would be more than happy to provide a superbill if desired so that clients may submit to insurance for reimbursement.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

In reflecting on my life's journey, both personally and professionally, it is amazing to think about the ways in which one informs the other. Although life has given me many blessings, it has not been without numerous anticipated and unanticipated challenges-grief and loss, blended family difficulties, transitions, job loss, work-life balance as a new mom, and family-of-origin issues. These life challenges have helped to make me the person and therapist I am today.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Beginning therapy is a sign of tremendous strength and courage. It shows the ability to recognize that patterns of behavior or solutions of choice are no longer effective and the desire to make everlasting changes.
