In my practice, you are part of the partnership we create professionally to move toward health, improved quality of life, improved relationships, overall sense of well-being, and achievement of personal goals. I invite you to participate in goal setting, treatment planning, and between-session work. I will work with your strengths and unique skill set in a nonjudgmental, comforting environment within a problem solving framework. Fee for service is $75 payable to me at each visit. I will bill insurance for your reimbursement. Please check with your carrier to ensure your repayment percentage. Sliding fee available for qualified patients.
I take your individual needs, culture, and life events to heart, without discrimination, in a non-threatening environment. I treat adults and youth to help them overcome stressful, traumatic events. My specialties include relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, obsessions/compulsions, addictions, self-harm, and eating disorders.
I treat a variety of mental health conditions. The $75 fee is paid to me at the beginning of session. I will provide you with a record of each session billed to insurance. My most important priority is to provide you with the help that you need.
