Practice Description: Do you feel guilty about things you've said and done? Do you lose sleep because of these feelings? Would you like to repair or rebuild your relationships? We all think about our relationships during our lives. Yet this "unfinished business" can be an energy drain, robbing us of vitality and preventing us from having the life we truly want. Left unchecked, it can lead to depression and anxiety. One of life's most important processes is the act of forgiveness -- a process which rids us of self-loathing and bitterness so that we won't live in constant anguish.

Counseling is a way to work on forgiveness. It's like talking with a friend, but your privacy is guaranteed, while the therapist provides clarity and objectivity. As your therapist, I don't "just sit there and listen." I'm present and empathic, using professional listening skills for comforting insight and feedback.

Fully engaging with my clients allows me to offer genuine thoughts and opinions. I'm also willing to initiate and respond to uncomfortable topics during a session, when appropriate. I have extensive experience working with such clinical disorders as bipolar/manic depression and depression, and offer life coaching as well.

Insurance and Billing Instructions: I do not accept insurance at this time. I recommend that you contact your insurance provider prior to our initial meeting to better understand your insurance benefits and the reimbursement policy for an “out-of-network” provider, as I have chosen not to contract directly with insurance panels for several important reasons:

When using insurance to pay for mental health services, a mental disorder diagnosis is often required before treatment is deemed medically necessary. Such diagnoses can remain on a client’s record permanently and may have long-standing consequences later in life.

When using insurance, it’s often necessary for your insurance company to deem you “sick enough” for coverage to be provided. In other words, in order to start or continue counseling and psychotherapy each session must be clinically justified. Unfortunately, countless life struggles and transitions don’t meet most insurance providers’ criteria for a “justifiable” diagnosis.

And, perhaps most importantly, when using insurance to pay for health services, your privacy and confidentiality are at risk. Third-party members become involved in the process of reviewing your records. Because the relationships I build with my clients and the work we do together are based on the highest standards of trust, I find my work and those relationships compromised by the lack of confidentiality offered by most insurance plans
