My clients often seek two things from counseling: to improve their relationships and examine how they manage their decisions. To accomplish this, s/he/they explore what attracts -- and frustrates -- them in romantic relationships, friendships or family relationships. Clients may find it helpful to explore problem solving or decision style, motivation underlying behavior, and career desires. Sometimes clients share painful memories of things done to them, of things they did that are outside their typical behavior. Clients often discuss depression, anxiety, anger management, self-esteem/confidence, relationship conflict, sexuality, polyamory, traumatic experiences and educational choices or career growth.

I help individual clients link current problems to personal history, and understand how both impact motivation and interpersonal behavior. This includes helping a client unpack trauma, feelings, emotional expression. My strongest asset may be helping a client reconnect with uniqueness and strengths - and move beyond crippling shame.

I complete all billing and contacts with insurers to maintain each client's privacy. I submit claims to BCBS/PPO and Blue Choice policies. When clients self-pay, I provide completed claim forms so the client decides to submit for reimbursement from his/her/their insurer.
