ABOUT ME .....
Life presents us with so many challenges. Let's work together to reframe your negative beliefs and thoughts about your situation and help you find the positive, healthy solutions that will help change your life.
I know getting to this place of calling a psychotherapist takes courage. It can be overwhelming. But let me assure you, I will do my best to partner with you and guide you through your journey to healing.
I am an educator and a private practice clinician who has been working in the psychotherapy/counseling field for over 15 years. My goal is to create a safe, non-judgmental place to help you better manage the struggles and challenges in your life.
My specialties include working with adults and couples dealing with various life struggles such as managing anxiety, depression, marital and relationship issues, communication problems,
divorce, life transitions, grief, loss and bereavement.
I use a holistic approach to therapy .... a combination of psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, motivational and insight oriented therapy to help you address the issues that have brought you into therapy.
COMPUTER FACE-T0-FACE CONTACT
After our initial face-to-face contact, if you cannot make it into the office for your next session, in some cases, I can provide TELEMENTALHEALTH, a HIPPA approved electronic computer based website similar to SKYPE and FACETIME. This can help alleviate some of the barriers to coming into counseling, like child care issues or other issues that interfere with the continuity of your care. These sessions are conducted from my office to your home in real-time. For more information, call me and we can discuss this rather new approach to therapy which has become very successful.
INSURANCE AND PAYMENT
I accept Blue Cross/ Blue Shield, United Behavioral Health and Neighborhood Health Plan. Please contact your insurance company prior to your first session to determine if you have a co-pay or if you have not yet met your deductible. I also participate in Out-Of-Network plans.
If you do not have health coverage, my fees can be adjusted on a sliding scale if needed. I accept cash, personal checks, Visa and MasterCard as payment.
