My goal as a therapist is to help my clients reach their full potential by allowing a safe place for them to talk, and also by sharing tools that will improve their happiness and well-being. My office is a warm, inviting, and confidential environment where I provide honest direct feedback, respect, and acceptance. I am very authentic and interactive with clients during sessions and my clients often tell me that they find it easy to talk with me.
Some of the reasons clients often come see me include:
- Managing Day to Day Stress
- Sexual Orientation/ Gender Identity/ LGBTQ
- Substance Use Disorders
- Adjustment to College
- Pet Loss Support
- Low Self-Esteem
I use an eclectic approach with clients, with my main focus being on positive psychology, cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and mindfulness approaches. One of my interests also is in functional medicine, which is about finding a cause for a particular health concern instead of just treating the symptoms. Functional medicine looks at nutritional deficiencies, environmental factors, emotional and social stressors and additional factors. In my practice I often encourage clients to look at a bigger picture that includes exercise, relaxation techniques, and good nutrition.
I take insurance with Anthem, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Cigna, and ValueOptions (non HMO), however, please check with your provider to make sure I am covered with your specific plan.
Some insurance companies allow their members to go out of network and file for reimbursement, in which case I will be glad to provide you with a monthly receipt for payment of services. Please ask me about my sliding scale if finances are a concern.
If you have any questions about my services, please give me a call or send an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
