Announcement icon I am currently welcoming new clients who wish to video conference.
I work with adults, couples, and older teens with many presenting issues. Clients work on grief and loss, including miscarriage, as well as depression and/or anxiety, and phobias, including driving phobia. I work with people with substance abuse & other addictions including smoking, shoplifting and gambling. I utilize EMDR to desensitize traumatic emotions. My practice is welcoming to clients with suicidal ideation, prior attempts, or family survivors. I help couples learn effective communication skills, explore infidelity, sexual issues, & the viability of their relationship. I welcome fellow therapists and other professionals.
I am very welcoming and non-judgmental and I will nudge you gently forward as needed. Though I possess numerous practical skills, ideas, and "tools" in my toolbox, I believe a non-judgmental therapeutic relationship with a relentless focus on your issues unleashes your growth potential. I try to remain neutral and objective with couples.
Many people need more time than the traditional 45 to 50 minute session. My standard fee is $80 for one 60-120 minute therapy session, often closer to two hours. If you are unable to pay this, I have accepted incrementally less, but prefer no less than $60 at the lower end of the scale per session. (Fees higher after hours.) I look forward to your call.

More about this group

More about this group

Kleptomania Group Proposed

Kleptomania is a compulsion to steal for emotional reasons, not monetary gain --stealing against your desire to stop and your moral compass. It is an addiction and can be treated as such. There usually is an emotional emptiness which stealing compensates for, yet there are more functional ways to cope with that emptiness than stealing. If you come up with 4 people, I will facilitate the group! Will work individually with you also.
