Beginning therapy is a personal choice and an investment in yourself. Making the effort to seek out a therapist is a brave step towards enhancing your quality of life. People begin therapy for many different reasons. Some people are experiencing life changes including changes in health, work, school/college or issues with daily living. While others may be experiencing anxiety or depression due to increased isolation during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Other people might be are carrying around years of painful memories.
Whatever has led you to seek out therapy, I would be happy to work with you! Therapy is a place to explore and learn new ways of living.

there is healing."
There is a stigma associated with out-of-network benefits. Looking back on my own personal experiences, I would shy away from using any out-of-network providers. Insurance in general is confusing and really overwhelming when you’re already stressed out! Receiving therapy with your out-of-network (OON) benefits does not necessarily mean your services are not covered. If you have OON benefits with your insurance coverage, your insurance company may cover ALL or a portion of my fee. There is no guessing on this, I can call your insurance on your behalf to get specifics about your plan so we know what is covered. I really do care and don’t want the financial piece to be more stressful than it already is.
* I offer a reduced rate for a limited time-frame to those with financial hardships.
If you want to find out about your out-of-network benefit without my help, you can do so by asking following question to your insurance company:
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, my practice is exclusively offering online sessions for new and existing clients in order to best serve our community. Sessions are currently being provided through a HIPAA compliant platform that uses video and audio technology. This allows for secure therapy sessions from the comfort and safety of our own homes.
Telehealth also known as online therapy or teletherapy is therapy through a live video connection, over the internet or by a phone call. If you have ever used Skype on your computer or FaceTime on your iPhone or iPad, you are already familiar with the same type of technology online therapy uses. If this is a new experience and you are not familiar with technology, I will be along your ‘virtual’ side helping you to adjust to this type of therapy.
There was a sense of comfort and security before Covid-19 and we as a whole are experiencing collective grief and loss of normalcy. I am here to help you process the anger, anxiety, grief, and/or depression that you may be experiencing in this uncertain, isolating time.
I use doxy.me for online therapy. You can find out more by clicking the computer. Before our session, I will provide you with a link that will bring you to my virtual waiting room.
If there are connection issues (which does happen time-to-time), we will resume our session on the phone.
In order for our sessions to be effective, you will need a private and quiet space without interruptions. Ensure that your WiFI is connected, give your family members or roommates a heads up that you are on an important call. You can also wear headphones to tune out background noise.
