Life constantly presents us with challenges, choices, and surprises.  Meeting life’s challenges alone can lead to loneliness, isolation and depression. Human beings simply do better emotionally, cognitively, and physiologically when they use the support of others. No one should have to meet their emotional pain alone. As a licensed psychologist, I do more than help clients leave behind maladaptive behaviors and relationships. I work closely with my clients to identify what is and what is not working in their lives, foster the hope and confidence needed to define authentic goals, and develop effective strategies for cultivating a truly rich existence.

Because each person carries a unique history and specific challenges, I draw from a number of psychological theories (including person centered, dialectical behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic, family systems, eye-movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive processing therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy) to tailor treatment for each client’s needs.

I am not in-network with any insurance companies, but can sometimes work with your insurance company to get you reimbursed if you have out-of-network options. Session rates range from $200 to $300, depending on clinician. A sliding scale is available.
