Getting Started

Congratulations…you already have! If you’ve been in therapy before or this will be your first experience, taking that first step to find a therapist that’s a “fit” for what you need can be the hardest one.
Good psychotherapy is about feeling safe and comfortable with a therapist who can support you unconditionally.

In my sessions, I listen deeply to to you to hear your thoughts and feelings and understand how they translate into moods and behaviors that might be blocking you from what you want or even causing you pain. My approach to therapy helps you to learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.

Your next step is an easy one. Send me a brief email or call to schedule a 15 minute consultation so that we can speak about your needs and I can answer any questions you may have.

Insurance & Billing

I am an out-of-network practitioner. That means that I’m not affiliated with any health insurance company networks but many of my patients have health insurance that has out-of-network benefits. That means that some or all of your session fees may be eligible to be reimbursed by your health insurance once you have met your deductible.

When you see me, I recommend you download the Reimbursify app which let’s you file for reimbursement quickly and effectively with support if needed.

If you don’t know if you have out-of-network benefits, I may be able to let you know after our phone consultation. If we find that you do not have any insurance coverage, we can discuss a fee on a sliding scale. The sessions are recommended on a weekly basis.

Methods Employed

Psychoanalytic, Psychodynamic, Eclectic, CBT Psychoeducational, and other modalities needed to individualize the work needed just for you.

Covid 19 Pandemic

All zoom sessions are provided on the Zoom platform for privacy purposes. I send you an invitation before our session. If you prefer phone sessions, that can be arranged too.
