“The principle aim of psychotherapy is not to transport one to an impossible state of happiness, but to help (the client) acquire steadfastness and patience in the face of suffering.





I provide individual psychotherapy to adults looking for a collaborative and non-judgmental space where emotions and thoughts can be openly explored. My background and training has an emphasis on trauma recovery and the treatment of anxiety. I am recently trained in providing Exposure-Response Preventions (ERP) which is the gold standard for treating Obsessive-Complusive Disorder (OCD). 


I bring a thoughtful and genuine presence to therapy and consider this connection key to self-discovery, healing, and change. I believe psychotherapy supports the development of good relationships, healthy boundaries, mindfulness, attention to balance, and empathy and respect for yourself and others. To me, psychotherapy is a shared experience in which the therapist and client can together find meaning. I use a varied approach – focusing on interpersonal, attachment, personality and familial issues. Additionally, I value the connection between mind and body and work to increase awareness of one’s physical self in hopes of bringing inner peace and balance. I believe the more attentive one is to his/her true self – mind, body, and soul – the easier it can be to face life’s challenges.

My current fee for a 50 minute individual therapy session is $150. Initial 15 minute phone consultations are always free and can be scheduled by filling out the contact form or emailing me. Please note that I do not accept insurance and am considered a "private pay clinician" meaning that is your responsibility to pay for each session at the time of service. If you desire to utilize your "out-of-network" insurance benefits, I can provide you with a receipt (superbill) of your payment that you may submit for potential, partial reimbursement. Please check with your insurance provider for out-of-network benefits. Many people find that their insurance can help cover some costs, even for out-of-network providers, once he deductible has been met. 

I accept credit card, cash, or check for payment at the time of service. I require 24 hour notice to cancel sessions to avoid incurring a fee for the cost of the session. 



I commend you for having the strength and courage to choose to begin this journey and I offer free 15-minute phone consultations to assist you with the process. Please fill out the contact form or send me an email and we will set up a time to talk further.
