I believe that change occurs best in an authentic client-therapist relationship.
Along with the client I create a friendly, caring environment from which people can feel safe to explore and express their authentic selves.
Through this relationship I believe a person is freer to go into the world more joyous and alive. Clients are better able to connect to others in relationship as well as express themselves in work and play.
I have come to understand the relationship between the body, mind and feeling. I believe that the three are woven together and all need to be contacted in therapy to create lasting change.
About Payment and Insurance
Some notes on the logistics of working with me:
Sessions last 60 minutes, though I sometimes book longer if the need arises.
The cost per session is $100 (for a 60-minute session).
I have a flexible schedule. I also do online telehealth sessions through doxy.me.
I accept the following forms of payment: cash, personal checks, and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover & American Express).
I know many people are interested in using their insurance to pay for therapy. My normal policy is to provide you with a detailed invoice, which you can then submit to your insurance company.
This therapy involves working with unconscious forces and transference feelings. In addition, understanding the impact of the past on the present.
Attachment Based Therapy
Attachment-based therapy is an approach to therapy that specifically targets those thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and interpersonal exchanges that patients have learned either to suppress and avoid or to overemphasize because of early attachment experiences.
Somatic Based Therapy
Holistic therapy that studies the relationship between the body and the mind as it relates to the past and current psychological struggles.
Emotion-focused therapy is a therapeutic approach based on the premise that emotions are key to identity. This type of therapy assumes that lacking emotional awareness or avoiding unpleasant emotions can cause harm.
