My Approach to Helping

Do you want to stop surviving and start thriving? Are you ready to start feeling excited and engaged in your life? Or maybe you want to tweak your confidence or decision making skills? Counseling will leave you feeling more empowered and able to emotionally support yourself. I offer a safe and supportive space where you can examine what may be causing you to feel stuck or overwhelmed. We will clarify your goals for change, increase your self-awareness and start making choices that fit and make sense in your life.

I am a holistic provider who blends Eastern and Western philosophies and strategies into my practice. I look at the whole person; mind, body, and spirit. In addition to traditional "talk therapy" and supportive referrals, I also provide Reiki. Reiki is a gentle form of energy healing that can assist you in reaching a deeper level of relaxation, stress management, release emotional pain, reduce physical pain, boost your immune system and promote your body's own healing. While some of my clients prefer "talk therapy" only appointments, I can incorporate Reiki treatments into counseling session appointments or schedule them as separate appointments for those interested in receiving complimentary services.

More Info About My Practice

Currently I am scheduling only telehealth distance therapy (video) appointments: Hours vary by day, but at this time I am only accepting new clients who can attend a telehealth session between 9:45am- 4pm.
Self pay and insurance clients are welcome. I am currently an in-network provider with BCBS PPO, BCBS Blue Choice, Optum, United Healthcare and Cigna.
I do not accept out-of-network insurance; clients will be charged the full fee for services and I can provide the necessary paperwork for clients to seek reimbursement.
I offer a reduced rate for clients who do not have insurance or prefer not to use insurance. I do not offer sliding scale fees based on income.

Groups I Work With

    I work individually with older adolescents and young adults who are struggling to understand who they are and how to manage stressful thoughts, emotions and experiences. And guess what? Sometimes that process carries into our adulthood as well. That's okay! Very few people in this world have it "all figured out" and even they have moments of doubt, pain and confusion. That is truly a human experience.
