My Approach to Helping
I specialize in helping women recognize & amplify inner resources to recover from trauma, addiction, anxiety, and depression while attending to the important relationships in their lives.
Drawing on the wisdom of neuroscience and best practices from psychotherapy and spiritual counseling, my integrative approach aims to reduce suffering and increase resilience.
In addition to individual therapy, I run self-compassion groups for women.
More Info About My Practice
Online scheduling is available on my website.
Please Note: Most patients are seen once or twice per week. Due to the nature of my work and the correlation between efficacy and positive outcome, I do not see patients less than once per week.
Full fee is $140; slide to $100 for low income; inquire about lower fee openings as I make these available as often as I can.
Regarding Insurance: Check with your insurance company to see if they accept superbills for psychotherapy services. If you have a PPO, I submit monthly superbill invoices to you for reimbursement. Many PPOs reimburse as much as 50% of your therapy bill.
You will be required to fill out their form and submit my superbill each month to be reimbursed for your therapy. Each company is different and reimburse a percentage of your fee or what they deem as standard. Be sure to ask how much they will reimburse for each session, whether or not there is a deductible, and use my license number: MFT #53456.
My Role as a Therapist
When we work together, I am most interested in your goals and how our connection can help you meet them. What you will notice right from our initial correspondence is that I have a warm personality and care about what is happening in your life. In addition to my in-depth study and expertise in psychotherapy, I am a down-to-earth and compassionate companion to help you find relief from suffering.
For the past 11 years I have used several approaches in my vast toolbox, but lean most on these effective relational approaches within a social-justice framework: Compassion-Focused Therapy, Neurobiologically-Informed Trauma Treatment, Psychodynamic, Transpersonal/Non-Dual Awareness Counseling, and Ecopsychology.
