My Approach to Helping

Whether I'm working with a couple or individual I have learned through experience to approach each session with an open mind. Sometimes the client will seek out a therapist who they feel has gone through similar experiences as they have themselves. While this is normal and make sense if it were a friendship, for therapy I have found it to be more beneficial the less I have in common with my client. Together, we learn what it's like to be inside the client and how they relate to the outside world. It is through this process that ultimately leads to new neural pathways, new directions and changes in persons life.

More Info About My Practice

Insurance: I am able to take a variety of different types of insurance to help offset or reduce the clients fee. Feel free to contact me regarding insurance and I will be more than happy to let you know how much of your fee will be covered through your plan.
Reduced Fee: Reduced fee slots are available on a limited basis. If you are in need of a reduced fee in order to attend therapy, please call to discuss.

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

Having an extensive background in the entertainment industry I specialize in helping creative and performing artists work through creative blocks and performance anxiety. One of the challenges that somebody faces in this industry is that they need to define themselves that is to differentiate themselves from the masses.

My Role as a Therapist

As a psychotherapist I work as a guide, a GPS if you will, to help orient you in the direction of your goals and desires. I find people often fail to reach their goals not because they are unattainable, but rather they have long since left the path or trajectory that would have taken them there.
