I work primarily with individuals, but I can also help couples if it seems that the relationship is the major source of distress.
Some specific areas that I treat:
PTSD and symptoms arising from traumatic events
Loss and grief
Anxiety and depression
Major life transitions
Choosing a therapist can be difficult. Regardless of how qualified a therapist is "on paper," I think you really have to meet the therapist you're considering to get a feel whether the relationship feels right. For that reason, I offer a free initial, non-therapeutic consultation so we can get a good feel for one another before making any commitment. After the initial consultation, my rate is $120 per session.
I’m in-network with Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO plans. (Note that does not include BCBS HealthSelect or HMO plans such as Magellan.) If you are not in a BCBS PPO plan, I can give you a receipt that you can use file for out-of-network benefits with your insurance company.
I accept cash, checks, all major credit cards, FSA, and HSA cards for payment.
If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so with 24 hours. In general, my policy is to still charge you If you fail to give 24 hours notice or fail to show up for a session, I recognize, however, that emergencies sometimes come up and missing therapy cannot be avoided. Therefore, for each calendar year, I allow one "freebie" where you can avoid the charge for a less than 24 hours cancellation notice. When you choose to use this "freebie" is up to you; in the event this occurs, I will ask you if you would like to use your "freebie" or if you would rather save it for later and pay for the missed session.
