Marriage & Family Therapist, MFT
My clients come to therapy because there is something that prevents them from feeling satisfied and achieving their potential. It may be depression or anxiety. It may be some addiction (to alcohol or drugs, food, sex or internet). It may be that their relationships are stuck or they lack satisfying relationships. It may be that they are searching for a better sense of who they truly are. While my focus is to find the right approach for each client to bring about the changes they seek, with all clients I strive to create a safe and supportive relationship.
It is my belief that it is through relationship that we heal. While my focus usually includes examining the past and how it influences the present, I am also focused on achieving the changes clients want now. I work with adults, adolescents, individuals and couples, both straight and LGBTQ.
About insurance. Psychotherapy is founded on the relationship formed between client and therapist. A chief disadvantage of using insurance is how this relationship is mediated by a third party, one that can be very intrusive. I am always willing to try to provide effective therapy within people's budgets.
