About

There are many presenting issues that might bring you to counseling. Finding a therapist that you can connect with and build an alliance with is important to your success in therapy. I work very hard to create a relationship that will provide you the safety and warmth that you need to explore your experiences; I am very comfortable earning your trust. I use different treatment modalities, depending upon which is appropriate for you personally. Empathy is the primary tool used to give you the safety you need to explore your inner world while we begin to understand your experiences together.
I utilize an attachment-based perspective in my counseling approach. Additionally, this approach is proven to be beneficial when treating individuals who have experienced traumatic events and a variety of difficult life experiences; leaving you feeling isolated from the meaningful connections you desire.
I utilize a sliding scale fee to help you access the quality services you need. I provide statements to you for submission to your insurance company if you have out of network insurance benefits. Phone and video conferencing sessions are also available as needed.
