My Approach to Helping

I'm of the mindset that everyone can benefit from therapy. Each of us has unique worries and concerns that we 1) don't want to burden our friends and family with or 2) can't imagine anyone listening to without judgment. Therefore, choosing a therapist that you feel comfortable talking to is essential. The only way to truly benefit from therapy is to start off feeling understood, respected, and valued.

With specific goals in mind I work together with clients to explore their current situation from all angles. I believe it's important to take into account each person's unique past in order to better understand the patterns and feelings that they might be struggling with today. As such, I will want to get to know your history. Early family dynamics, friendships, relationships - all of these contribute to how we view and participate in the world around us.

Finally, I think it's an important reminder that part of the work of therapy is being able to address concerns about the therapy process with your therapist directly. This is a unique benefit of the therapy relationship and, although many people avoid it because it can feel uncomfortable, tremendous growth can be achieved by taking the risk to speak openly about how you feel the therapy process is going.

More Info About My Practice

I am an out-of-network insurance provider for any PPO plan.
Please check your insurance benefits for details, including any deductibles you may need to meet each year, and I will provide you with a monthly statement that can be submitted for reimbursement from your insurance company.

I do hold some sliding scale (low fee) slots for clients who may have financial constraints - please inquire.

Whether you've been in therapy before or you're seeking it out for the first time - the process can be overwhelming. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to set-up a consultation session. By doing so, we can figure out together whether we would be a good fit.
