About My Practice

There are steps each of us can take to better understand who we are, how we relate to others and what we can do to create positive changes in the way we think and feel. With a safe space and warm, compassionate support, you can learn to navigate personal and family challenges with a sense of calm and confidence. I understand that every adult, child and teen experiences trauma, anxiety and other challenges in his or her own way and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to helping you find healing and growth in your life and relationships. With the right guidance and support, you can explore difficult thoughts, emotions and behaviors with self-compassion and learn to make healthy, empowered choices.

What to Expect

Initial Consultation: You can schedule online or call my office to set up a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation. I want to understand the challenges and goals that led you to contact me. Building a trusting relationship is an important part of the therapy process, and we can take time to decide together if my style and approach are the right fit for your needs. If you would like to continue working together, we can schedule our first session.

1st Session: I use Simple Practice for scheduling and billing, and you will have an opportunity to sign up and complete necessary paperwork prior to our first session. As we get started, we will take a little time to walk through these forms and clarify any questions you may have about my practice or my approach (confidentiality, cancellation policies, etc). We can begin exploring sources of stress, conflict or pain and work together to develop tailored strategies, tools and techniques that you can use to find relief and growth in your personal life, family and relationships. And, if you still feel that we are a good fit after our first session, we can schedule ongoing sessions around your personal, professional and family obligations.

Continuing Sessions: Throughout our work together, we will move at a pace that allows you to feel comfortable and make meaningful changes without becoming overwhelmed. Instead of telling you what to do or how to do it, I work with you to help you define your goals and foster change in your own life. It may be that you don’t know why you are struggling. I can help you identify sources of pain, discomfort and stress and learn to develop the tools and self-compassion you need to help yourself and others now and in the future.

I do not accept insurance, but I can provide a receipt or Superbill to your insurance company if they reimburse for out of network (OON) providers. Every insurance company is different, and it is important that you contact your insurance company before our first session to find out if they accept OON providers and what percentage they reimburse when you see someone out of network. You would continue to pay me for each session, but at the end of the month I would either send a Superbill directly to your insurance company or give it to you to submit for reimbursement.
Each session is 45 minutes long, which allows us to focus on your needs and develop new awareness and/or skills while ensuring you aren’t paying for time spent chit-chatting at the beginning or end of a session.
You will not be charged for a missed session if you notify me of the cancellation at least 24 hours in advance. While I try not to make exceptions, I do understand that emergencies and unavoidable conflicts may arise, and we can discuss possible exceptions during our initial consultation or first session.
Parking is readily available near my office, but you may still wish to give yourself 5-10 extra minutes to find a spot and make your way into the building.
My office is located in Suite 170, which can be found on the 2nd floor. When you come in the main entrance, take the stairs to the 2nd floor and take an immediate right into the first hallway. Suite 170 will be the first door on your left. You’ll enter the waiting room – please take a seat and I’ll be right with you.
