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. I can provide the necessary paperwork for clients to seek reimbursement from their insurance company.
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.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I enjoy supporting clients who are hopeful about creating positive and lasting change in their life. However, sometimes insurance expectations (therapist must provide a clinical diagnosis for the client) and limitations (therapist must be "treating" a psychiatric disorder for insurance to cover cost of sessions) create a strain on the work I believe that some clients are interested in--personal growth.
