My Approach to Helping
My psychotherapy and counseling practice welcomes adult and adolescent individuals from all backgrounds and offers the opportunity to work towards achieving positive change in an open, personally empowering, non-biased, non-judgmental, warm and welcoming setting. I consider myself a mental health generalist offering a combined therapeutic approach and supportive environment for both women and men. My top priority is providing a safe and supportive environment for all of my clients.
More Info About My Practice
I currently offer appointments during evenings and occasional Saturday mornings, so you don't have to worry about taking off work. I schedule appointments on weekday evenings between 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
As an out-of-network mental healthcare provider, I can submit insurance claims or provide session receipts to clients interested in filing for reimbursement through their health insurance provider or their flexible spending account (FSA). I accept most forms of payment, including cash, check, credit or debit cards, and health savings and flexible spending accounts (i.e., HSA, FSA accounts).

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
This will vary for each individual or couple and is based on several factors, including one's familiarity and experience with psychotherapy, the extent of the concerns and goals being addressed and one's willingness to think aboutwork on concerns and goals in between sessions.
Some people may find that the progress, required to meet their goals, may occur subtly at first. For others, progress may occur more quickly. Generally, those committed and open to therapy develop the personal insight necessary for achieving positive change in their lives.
Most clients will start off by meeting with me on a weekly basis; however, there are times when I will see a client twice a week or bi-weekly. Once we determine that you have met or have nearly met your therapeutic goals, we will reevaluate things and determine if it would be ok for us to move to a bi-weekly or monthly session schedule.
Following an initial assessment, we will work together to create a realistic timeline for achieving your goals.
