Announcement icon I continue to see existing and previous clients via tele-therapy sessions. New clients are welcomed, especially healthcare workers.
As you consider a therapist search for someone who seems to value the things you value, someone who will want to support your life goals; listen to your own sense of who can get you started on the road to healing, recovery, or flourishing; focus on your need to understand what you really want and how to start getting more out of your life. I take time with my clients to be sure we have the right fit and that we know you are in the right place in the first few sessions. Unfortunately, my current client volume has filled my calendar and I am not accepting new clients until January 2022. Previous clients will be seen as necessary.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist and certified pastoral counselor with 48 years of clinical experience. I focus on the client's experience as they live today - what's working, not working, what's missing, & how to live a more attentive, mindful life that is very honest about their values.
Clients schedule appointments through email or by calling my office. I no longer accept direct payment from insurance companies but am willing to assist with appropriate forms. My fee is set on a sliding scale ranging from $75 - $130. I practice primarily on Tuesdays, 9am to 6 pm and Wednesdays, 10 am to 6 pm. My office allows for social distancing sessions.
