I primarily offer Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive-Behavioral services to best meet my clients' needs. Please see below for services available. I provide a free 15-minute consultation call so that we can discuss your needs and make an informed decision about fit and moving forward with a more thorough assessment. Please call or email me to schedule your free consultation call.
I bill psychotherapy and coaching/consultative sessions in 50- and 90-minute increments. I accept credit cards and cash. Payment is due at the time of the session. Please contact me for my current availability. I am out-of-network and do not bill health insurance companies directly, but can easily provide invoices for therapy sessions. Often, clients can be reimbursed by insurance or Flexible Spending or Health Savings Accounts. Please contact your insurance company to determine your coverage.
I offer online psychotherapy sessions; we can discuss whether this is clinically appropriate for you. Non-psychotherapy appointments are typically offered both in-person and by teleconference.
Please Note: If you do not attend your scheduled appointment, and have not notified me at least 24 hours in advance, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session.
Psychotherapy is a proven way to facilitate in healing deep, long-standing, and re-occurring patterns. It's a research-driven method, involving collaborative and active engagement from the client to experience its benefits. As a Psychologist specializing in Cognitive-Behavioral and Mindfulness-based treatments, particularly in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I will assist you in understanding and coping with your current difficulties, develop new behaviors & ways of thinking, and cultivate meaning in your life. I am confident that we can work together to actualize your potential and your emotional wellness!
I treat a variety of concerns and questions in individual psychotherapy with late adolescents, Millenials, and professionals.
The following are common areas of focus:
RELATIONSHIPS & COUPLES THERAPY
I accept all relationships and couples at every stage of connection. Perhaps you are at a place in your life where you are seeking a new partner, or maybe you are newly single - again!- and desiring a healthy relationship. You and your partner may be considering making a commitment or contemplating parenthood. Or it could be that you are struggling to keep your relationship intact, or going through a dissolution. Using an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy-based model for couples, I will facilitate your work as you move toward solutions that are aligned with your values and needs as individuals and intimate partners.
Common areas of emphasis are:
Interpersonal/Relationship Skill Building
The benefit of seeking someone's help is that it brings you support and facilitates in building resilience against stress. This is important whether you have a small problem to solve or you are making a significant life change. The theory of coaching assumes that clients are functioning individuals who are seeking assistance and accountability in making progress toward achieving their goals. Clients seeking coaching may experience stress, "stuckness," and negative self talk or emotions. This interferes with their attempt to reach personal, career/financial, and health-related goals. I use evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment and Cognitive Behavioral coaching, which helps me to focus on the primary aspects of behavior change. By helping you to notice your patterns and increase your flexibility in the ways in which you choose particular behaviors, you are better equipped to purposefully move toward your values-driven goals. We will use strategies to develop workable, tangible outcomes that help you to grow and become more effective in your life.
Clients who benefit from a coach (versus psychological treatment) are: those without a diagnosed psychiatric disorder or behavioral/emotional dysfunction; those who are not in crisis or presently affected by clinically traumatic events; or those who do have characterological issues that hurt themselves or others. Coaching uses accountability to increase motivation, healthy lifestyle habits, confidence, and communication.
