Individual and relational counseling for adolescents and adults. 

The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.
— William James (1842-1910)

people I serve

I work with adolescents 12 and older, college students, and adults of all ages. I am especially interested in working with college students adjusting to college life, individuals and couples with relationship issues, adults struggling with parenting, and women struggling with pregnancy and postnatal issues.  

Choosing a therapist

Not every client and therapist are a perfect match. When it comes to choosing a therapist, finding someone that is a good match for you is crucial to your success. The best way to do this is to call several therapists and see which one is right for you after speaking with them. Please contact me for a free consultation to discuss the reasons you want to attend counseling and learn whether I am a good mental health clinician for you. 

therapeutic style

My preference for therapy is to use a psychodynamic perspective as a therapist. This means I believe that exploring the past of a patient is essential to learning how people come to have current struggles. Awareness of the origins of our struggles helps discard these outdated modes of acting and choose a new path.

INSURANCE

I currently accept insurance plans for Blue Cross Blue Shield, Ambetter, Cigna, ComPsych, Qualchoice, Optum, UMR, UBH, and United Healthcare. 

For most insurance plans you must pay a certain amount called a deductible before your insurance plan will pay part of the session cost. To best understand your session cost I recommend checking with your insurance company prior to your first appointment.
