Why should I choose your practice?

A guiding principle in my practice is, I do not ask people to do anything that I haven’t done myself. I have a therapist. The skills and strategies I teach, use, or have used in the past. I believe the therapeutic relationship is a relationship between equals. This relationship can be one of the most powerful and transformative relationships between two human beings. It has been the honor of my life to serve as a person’s therapist, to be what they need in a moment in time. Whether that is a container, a guide, a witness, a teacher, an anchor, a champion, or all of the above.

I believe in healing the whole person, unwavering compassion, honest real-talk, authenticity and vulnerability, playfulness + levity, and the power of feeling seen + heard. If this resonated with you, let’s get to work + I look forward to hearing from you.

How does payment work at your practice?

We understand that not every individual has Health Insurance. We offer a Private Pay scale depending on the provider and the service offered. We are happy to submit claims on your behalf directly to your insurance company as we are in network with BCBS, Blue Care Network and United Healthcare.
