It takes courage to seek a counseling relationship--good for you for taking this first step! A compassionate, nonjudgmental therapist can help people identify and change dysfunctional patterns that are keeping them "stuck." My goal is to provide clients with a sense of safety, confidence, and hope as they explore issues that are causing distress. I work with adults using a blend of evidence-based treatment methods that help increase self-awareness, improve communication, and strengthen coping skills. Trauma, anxiety, depression, loss, chronic illness, and complicated bereavement are my particular focus.

Relationships give our lives meaning, but they can also be a source of suffering. Learning about patterns and having expert guidance for conscious communication can turn conflict into an opportunity for connection and growth. Life transitions, recovery, family of origin issues, relationship difficulties and personal growth and self-care are challenges I can help navigate. We can reconnect with our essential aliveness by accepting all parts of ourselves, cultivating inner wisdom and connecting with others from a place of self-awareness and clarity. We all need help sometimes to find the path to our best life and peace of mind.

This may include specific, actionable areas such as changing a certain behavior or more broad, general changes such as how to better improve your mental well-being or develop healthier relationships.

Out of Network Therapists
An out-of-network Therapist in Athens has not agreed to any set rate with your insurer. Your plan may require higher co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance for out-of-network care and you may need to pay the difference between your insurer's allowed amount and what the Therapist charges.

The costs for an Athens out-of-network Therapist also depend on your type of plan:

In a Health Maintenance Organization, or HMO, or Exclusive Provider Network, or EPO, you generally have to pay the full cost of any out-of-network care.

In a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) or Point-of-Service (POS) plan, you will usually have to pay a higher deductible and or a higher co-pay plus a higher percentage co-insurance plus, the difference between the allowed amount and your provider's actual rate.
