Therapy is a tool that can be used to reduce a barrier or burden standing in the way of you living the life you want. Here are some barriers and burdens that my clients have expressed are way too heavy to carry around and they chose therapy as a way to help lighten the load.
You feel wound up and overwhelmed by almost everything. It takes you a while to relax after having an unpleasant experience. The idea of answering the question “How was your day?” is too heavy and complex to answer. You toss and turn throughout the night. Your mind won’t let you forget about the thing you said and did. Your “inner critic” berates you about the things you didn’t say or do when you had the chance.
The good thing is anxiety relief can be achieved.
Life is always in transition and change activates people in different ways. Some look forward to life’s changes but you dread the idea because change throws off your center of gravity. To you, change means inconsistency and unpredictability.
Instead of enjoying the present moment, you watch the clock in an attempt to determine how will this situation turn out. To recover after an abrupt shift is unbearable and to think about starting again seems impossible.
I would be honored if we could work together to figure out how you can embrace life’s changes with a bit more ease.
It bothers you, that another year has gone by and you feel like you’re in the same place. It bothers you, that you can’t remember the last new thing that happened in your life.
You’re stuck comparing yourself to others because you think “I’m the reason why my life isn’t the way I want.”
Learning how to become unstuck can take some time, but once it’s mastered, the future can look less overwhelming and more promising.
The idea of living life on your terms, sounds like a fantasy. You can’t be yourself, because you’re afraid no one will like that version of you, the real you. Your current idea of being confident and secure is to morph into someone who is not you, a materialistic, selfish, arrogant, ego-maniac.
I don’t want you to be different and I certainly don’t want you to pretend to be someone you’re not.
I want you to embrace the real you.
The real you doesn’t want to be hidden way. The real you wants a chance to live a full life. I’m looking forward to getting to know the real you.

3 Steps to Get Started
How much does therapy cost?
My current rate is $175 for a 75 minute intake session aka the first session and $150 for 50 minute individual follow-up sessions. I have limited availability for sliding scale appointment slots.
Can I use my insurance to cover the cost of my therapy sessions?
It depends on your current insurance benefits.
Click here for the current list of in-network insurance providers. If you don’t see your provider listed, contact the membership hotline on the back of your insurance card, and ask your insurance provider, if your current plan includes ‘Out of Network’ benefits for outpatient mental health treatment.
“Out of Network” benefits may include, reimbursement, or the ability to pay for therapy using a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA)
Will I be in therapy forever?
No, you will not be in therapy forever. I believe that therapy is helpful as long as you are growing and changing as a result of implementing the tools and techniques that are discussed in session. If you and I both do our jobs, you will not be in therapy forever.
