The goal of psychotherapy is to feel understood, discover your needs and wants and to make your life more productive and fulfilling. One goal may be to improve your relationship with yourself, improve your relationship with others; whether the relationship is romantic, business, friend or family.

Individual Therapy – The time is set aside for you and I to explore your questions, concerns and understand your relationship to the world and your self. We will meet at least once a week, I often meet with clients 2 to 3 times per week and psychoanalytic work is meeting 3 to 5 times per week. Everyone is different and our sessions can be 50 minutes, 70 minutes or 100 minutes, according to your needs and desires.

Couples Therapy – Couples therapy sets aside time to talk, set goals, resolve conflicts, improve communication, understand resentments & infidelities, learn to tolerate differences, to define expectations and to build a strong and working partnership.

Couples sessions can be 50 minutes, optimally I encourage the use of 70 or 100 minutes so you don’t feel cut off by the time limit.

Group Therapy – Group offers an opportunity to practice new behaviors, learn communication skills, discover how you form relationships and learn how to offer and receive support.

Free Telephone Consultation – I offer a Free Telephone Consultation for those who have questions or want to talk with me about their situation without setting up a formal appointment.

Will your services be covered by my health insurance policy?

I am not a provider in-network with any insurance company. If you want to be sure a provider is in network I would start with a call to your insurance company or visit their web site to get referrals. PPO and POS insurance plans that offer out-of-network privileges provide reimbursement for psychotherapy services by providers not in their network.. Please check with your insurance company to verify coverage for mental health services by out-of-network licensed Marriage & Family Therapists. I will provide clients with a statement of services at the end of each month, which can be submitted to their insurance company for reimbursement.
For more information about insurance coverage, check the FAQ page.
