Therapists In-Network with Blue Cross Blue Shield in Rhode Island

Blue Cross Blue Shield is a common health insurance in Rhode Island, and individuals who have Blue Cross Blue Shield may wish to find therapists who are in-network with their health insurance.

When you see a therapist who is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, each session you’ll pay only a copay, which typically ranges from $0-$75/session.

For individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, and/or adjusting to a new situation: Transitions are a standard part of life, but that does not make the process an easy or comfortable one. Talking about the issues, the stumbling blocks, and the obstacles can make them more surmountable. Whether it’s adjusting to school, to a changing relationship, or to a difficult work experience, people can benefit from talking with a therapist and getting support.

I acknowledge how difficult it is to make to the decision to come to therapy. Seeking support for emotional or personal challenges is an act to bravery. I realize how stigmatized strong emotions are in our society, and at times we may feel shame for crying. In my practice I aim to serve as a platform free of judgement that allows you to speak your deepest pain and discomfort. To support you in establishing a channel of communication between your body and your mind.

I believe that therapy should create a safe and conducive environment for exploration and change, be affirming and empathic, facilitate learning and self-discovery, and provide feedback about unhealthy life patterns. My areas of expertise include: sports/athletic performance anxiety, recovery from athletic injury, general stress and anxiety management, life transitions, health and wellness. In addition to my clinical practice, I teach and perform research on stress, anxiety and health. I have published over 30 articles in the areas of high blood pressure, stress and women's health, and have given over 50 presentations about my research.

I am a triathlete and black belt in Tae Kwon Do, with an interest in Zen philosophy. I'm also a new student of electric guitar to challenge my brain in a different way. Thus, balance, mindfulness, and focus are important aspects of how I view mental health.

My background gives me a unique perspective of the mind-body connection. I can help you learn ways to: cope with athletic injury, improve resilience and athletic performance, lower your stress levels, feel less overwhelmed, make it through a difficult life transition, be healthy, and attain balance in your life.

I think it's really imperative that people have their safe space to be able to come in and talk about whatever it may be that you might be dealing with. Oftentimes, there is something going on that maybe you feel like you can't talk to your friends about or you can't talk to your family. So this is your safe space to be able to come in and talk about whatever it may that you feel like you need to get off of your chest or that you just really need to talk out.
