My Approach

As a relationship and family therapist, I provide a non-judgmental and affirming space that acknowledges and celebrates the beauty of human sexuality, gender, and relational variance. I help individuals, partnerships, and families to examine and create new patterns, communicate more openly and lovingly, and strengthen the relationships in their lives.


My approach to therapy focuses on helping you to identify, explore, and, if helpful, lift constraints that may be interfering with the ability to live your definition of a healthy, balanced life.  I work collaboratively with clients to examine trans-generational patterns, to heal wounds and the effects of past trauma, and to create more meaningful and rewarding relationships.

 
 

Getting Started

First, start with reaching out via email or by phone. Once we're connected I will set up a time to have a quick initial phone conversation.

If we are a good match, we will set up an initial session. Initial sessions

are always held in person, at my office.

During this call, I will ask a few basic questions about you and what you hope to get out of therapy. The intention in this step of the process is to assess if I am the best therapeutic fit. If we feel as though I am not, I will do my best to help you find a therapist who is better suited to to meet your needs.

During the call we will also discuss how you plan to pay for sessions (i.e. Do you plan to use insurance? If so, do I accept the insurance plan you want to use?) If you do not plan to use insurance, we will collaboratively set the session rate  based on my sliding fee schedule.

 

Accepted methods of Payment: Cash, Check, Credit Cards.

Contact me if you have any questions or to inquire about additional rate information. 

Insurance & Pricing

In Network

I am an in-network provider for:

 

- Blue Cross Blue Sheild 

- UnitedHealthcare

 

If you have Co-Payments, Deductibles, Co-Insurance, or an Out of Pocket Maximum we will review your coverage together to assess how much you will owe per visit. 

Out of Network

You and I can check with your insurance company regarding Out of Network Coverage.​

 

If your plan covers Out of Network Services, I will happily accept your insurance.​

 

If you have Co-Payments, Deductibles, Co-Insurance, or an Out of Pocket Maximum I can help you decide how to best afford your care.

Without Insurance

In case you don’t have insurance, your plan doesn’t cover mental health, or you’d rather not use your insurance: 

You may pay out of pocket for your services. If you are able to,  pay the full fee for services. This ensures that I may continue to offer discounted rates to those in financial need. If you are unable to pay my full fee, we will work together to find a rate that is reasonable for both our needs.

 

Fee per session: $150
