There is convenient parking in both the front and back of the building.
Upon entering, you’ll find the stairs in the center of the plaza. When you get to the top of the stairs, you’ll take a left down the hallway. My office is the first door on the right.
Have a seat in the waiting room, and I’ll come out to get you for your scheduled session.
How long is a typical session, and how often do we meet?
Our sessions will be 55 minutes long. We’ll start by seeing each other weekly, as this is the proven best way to make the most progress toward your goals early on. There will likely then come a time when we both notice you’ve made significant strides.
When we see this, we’ll explore whether moving to a schedule of every other week makes more sense to maintain your progress. You can count on me to stay transparent about my observations and what I believe will be in your best interest.
How do I set up an initial appointment?
What is your rate? Do you accept insurance?
I offer both out-of-pocket/private pay and insurance options. My private rate is $150-$200 per 55-minute session for individuals. I sometimes have a sliding scale available, so please inquire.
I accept credit card, debit card, cash, check, and HSA/FSA/HRA benefits. I am in-network with the following insurance companies:
UnitedHealthcare / Optum/ Oxford
Do you have a cancellation policy?
I always prefer to attempt to reschedule that week’s session rather than simply cancel and skip that week’s work altogether. Please contact me to work together to see what other availability I have, as I’ll make every attempt to fit you in elsewhere if I can.
No-shows and sessions canceled in less than 48-hours will be billed the full fee.
What is the age range and gender of your clients?
What modalities do you work with?
Therapy is COLLABORATIVE with goals and objectives.
I work with Solution-Focused Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
How long will I be in therapy?
Do your clients receive homework to complete between sessions?
If I give you something to do and it doesn’t make sense to you to do it, I leave it up to you to try on new skills for size.
Can I use video therapy in lieu of, or in addition to, office visits?
Video therapy or telehealth is secure and encrypted, and I encourage you to visit the dedicated online therapy page to learn more! Of course, feel free to ask me questions!
Telehealth is convenient, and it happens in the comfort of your home. All you need for these teleconferencing services is the free app called Telehealth by SimplePractice, a quiet private location, and an adequate data or WIFI signal.
Billed the same as a traditional therapy session, the experience is seamless!
What is your professional training and experience?
I’m a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, a Certified EMDR practitioner, a National Board Certified Counselor, A Certified Telemental Health Provider, a Certified HeartMath Practitioner, and a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider.
I’ve been working in the field of psychotherapy for 10 years in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors of mental health.
Will I have to lie down on a couch?
Have you been in therapy yourself?
I experienced a profound personality change that has truly enhanced and improved my life. My goal is to help you grow into the person that you want to be.
Are you a dog or a cat person?
While I love all animals, I spend hours in the woods or on the beach walking with my dog, Max.
