My Approach to Helping
What I love the most about being a therapist is the opportunity I have to help people become aware of what is keeping them from fully living out their lives, then to take the steps toward opening up to a better existence. I am always interested in how and why people came to be where they are. I become passionate about helping them learn from their previous experiences to create new, more satisfying ones. I am frequently amazed at what a person can survive. Even more often, I am awestruck to witness and participate in the healing of what they've endured. More meaning, deeper spiritual connections, and better relationships with others often result from this restoration.
More Info About My Practice
I welcome the integration of faith and spirituality into psychotherapy. I have training both as a clinical psychotherapist and as a spiritual director. You are free to include spirituality into our work, or to leave it out, as you see fit. I am open to all spiritual traditions, and will work with you to find what most enlivens your moving forward.
I am an out-of network provider for insurance. This means that I do not make contractual agreements with insurance corporations. Rather, you and I remain free to determine the nature and duration of our work together. Many insurance policies cover out-of network providers, and typically that coverage ranges from 50-80% of the fee. Our office staff will help you get your benefit information and will give you what you need to receive reimbursement from your insurance company. Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding fees or insurance for counseling. I'm happy to help navigate those tricky waters!
