My Approach to Helping

For most of us, COVID-19 has either amplified existing problems or created new ones. Faced with so much uncertainty, many of us are experiencing new levels of anxiety, depression, worry and loss. I can't end the pandemic but I can help you and your family manage the symptoms that are the result of these additional stressors. For 23 years I have provided focused and effective therapy to adults, couples, childrenteens, and families. My style is warm, direct and collaborative. In addition to helping clients manage anxiety and depression, my approach focuses on two key areas; relationships and personal development.

I find that our primary relationships can be the source of our deepest satisfaction and, at times, our greatest distress. My work focuses on helping you better understand and navigate your relationships; bring passion, trust and friendship back to your partnership; restore healthy communication and a sense of calm to your family life.

Additionally, I help clients address the needs of their current stage of development. Together, we ask, "What do you need right now to continue your growth, to achieve developmental milestones, to get to the next stage of your life?" Then, we find the solutions that best work for you. I look forward to hearing from you!

More Info About My Practice

I currently accept both out-of-pocket and insurance-paying clients. I am an in-network provider for Anthem Blue Cross. Additionally, for insurance plans in which I am not in-network, I provide Super Bills that allow clients to seek reimbursement based on applicable out-of-network rates. Please feel free to call me to discuss my rates and review your payment options. I will do my best to help you make an informed payment decision that works for you.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love getting to know such a wide variety of individuals and families and having the privilege of playing a part in their lives. I love celebrating the changes my clients make, however subtle or profound. I love the diversity of working with all ages and utilizing a variety of approaches, such as talk, play, art, music and more. I love honoring the laughter and the tears, the absurdity and the seriousness of life's challenges.
