Announcement icon I am a Certified Teletherapy provider accepting new teletherapy clients. Currently, no co-pay charges for insurance clients.
I provide counseling for couples, families, and individuals from a comprehensive perspective. My primary counseling approach is Emotionally Focused therapy (EFT). I am certified to provide tele-therapy (online counseling), and I am trained in and utilize Collaborative Assessment and Management of Suicidality (CAMS) with children/adolescents and their families.
I have a passion for helping couples to rebuild their marriage, and supporting families as they work through the many transitions of life. Being trained in EFT, I use this approach to help clients recover from emotional injuries (hurt, betrayal, infidelity, etc) in order to have a fulfilling, happy, & successful life.
As a certified teletherapy provider, I am experienced in providing video counseling via the SimplePractice Telehealth app, freely available from the Apple or Google store. This is easily set-up and provides numerous benefits over traditional in-office counseling. If you are interested in learning more about my teletherapy practices, please contact me.
