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: meaning 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 schedule in-office or distance therapy (video) appointments: Monday-Friday from 10:00am-1:00pm, Monday- Thursday 5:45pm-9:00pm. 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 accept out-of-network insurance as well, and will help clients with the necessary paperwork for reimbursement. I offer reduced rates for clients who do not have insurance or prefer not to use insurance.

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

I am proud to offer reduced fee or free counseling services to military members and their significant others or spouses. As a former military spouse, I am aware of the struggles and stress a military family can experience during the activation, deployment, and return phase of military life. Through Give an Hour, I volunteer one hour of counseling, per week, at no cost to individuals who have been impacted by the current conflicts in Afghanistan andor Iraq.
