My Approach to Helping
My passion for therapy stems from 60 years of facing life's most difficult situations, and realizing that a trusting relationship can light a chosen path. Forming a deep bond and connection has proven to offer the greatest relief for those feeling anxious, sad, depressed, or who may be struggling with addiction.
Helping isn't telling you what to do. My work is to collaborate with you to provide a trusting and safe environment to help you find and resolve your deepest underlying difficulties in a non-judgmental space.
More Info About My Practice
I have made an ethical decision to not be paneled by insurance companies. I don't believe that insurers should decide your health care. You should.
My services often qualify for patient reimbursement, and are generally covered in full or in part by your health insurance provider. As an "out-of-network provider" I collect my fees (via debit or credit card) directly from you, and submit to your insurer for reimbursement to you.
My fees range from $175 to $250 depending on both length of session and whether group, individual, or family services are provided. I have also set aside some rate reduced hours each week for individuals who may find these fees prohibitive.
My Role as a Therapist
Quality therapy is simply a gift. There is nothing more difficult than the mental anguish we often go through as human beings, and nothing more wonderful than having someone with whom we feel safe, who won't judge us, but who will listen and offer insight that lights the path through those dark periods.
I have always strove to make my office that space, and myself the individual who most understands the complications that are creating your struggle.
