My Approach to Helping
I strive to connect clients back to their own sense of resilience through an honest and non-judgmental exploration of the issues that brought them to therapy. This is often achieved through trusting the process, slowing down, and deepening the connection to oneself and the present situation.
With couples, I often find that their current problems inhibits them from experiencing the supportive, caring and passionate relationship that they may have once had or both wish for. By learning to communicate in a safe and nurturing environment, couples begin to develop a deeper, more profound relationship.

In-network Insurance accepted:
For other insurances, I'm considered an out of network provider, which means that you're responsible for payment at time of service. You'll receive a statement from me which you'll then submit to your provider for reimbursement.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
First off you want to make sure they know something about your issue. Second, inquire on how they might address the thing you wish to work on. Third, (and quite important) see if you are comfortable with them. Regardless of how much they know, if you find them to be a pompous windbag or so ishy squishy that you feel compelled to take care of them, that will affect your therapy and what you get out of it. Look for someone with the right balance of knowledge and compassion for you.
