My Approach to Helping

It's time now to genuinely feel and function better. In order to do that, it's essential to pay close attention to your internal responses to the difficulties and patterns that have been cropping up in your closest relationships, your work, and with respect to your own self-concept, and to do so with someone who can help you see things differently and perhaps more accurately. Together, we will create an open, accepting, safe space, where you also will feel helpfully and persistently challenged to know yourself much better from the inside out, and as quickly as possible.

More Info About My Practice

I do not work on any insurance panels. If you have chosen an out-of-network benefit with your insurance, I will provide an invoice (with the essential information that the insurance company requires) that you can submit for partial reimbursement of my fee. Please let me know if you have any questions about this process, as it sometimes can be confusing to try to navigate the details of behavioral/mental health insurance benefits, including those for married couples.
