My Approach to Helping

If you are looking for a therapist who will spend the hour listening and nodding thoughtfully I may not be the right choice for you. If you are looking for a dynamic therapeutic experience where you can be both supported and challenged keep reading, we might be a good fit. I don't subscribe to a one-size-fits all approach to therapy. My approach is collaborative in nature; we'll work together to find out what works best for you drawing from my 20+ years of working with folks seeking to change their lives.

More Info About My Practice

My physical office is located on downtown Austin, Texas in a 150 year old mansion surrounded by pecan and oak trees. Inside you will find a comfortable space where sometimes folks just stop by to escape the summer heat and use free wifi. That's ok, we're pretty relaxed. I am in-network with BCBS PPO's but have found that many plans offer comparable benefits for out-of-network providers. I always recommend calling your insurance company prior to contacting a therapist. If you want to keep things simple and have full control over your therapy, my flat rate per appointment is $130.00 cash, check, or card.
