What
    Where

    I am a marriage and family therapist with an extensive background working with people from all walks of life and with diverse challenges. My approach to treatment combines a person-centered perspective with cognitive behavioral therapy and Buddhist psychology.  It is my goal to teach clients to manage challenging emotions and to gain insight into the underlying beliefs that drive and maintain their feelings.

    Q What is the advantage of using an out-of-network provider?

    Although insurance companies will cover part of the cost of therapy, they often require that a deductible be met and co-payments are paid. Working directly with an out-of-network provider means that you can work out a fee that is in your budget without having to choose a therapist at random from a list on your insurance website.

    Q Are there risks to therapy?

    Because therapy uncovers hidden patterns of thinking and feeling there is often a degree of discomfort until coping skills can be learned. However, as your therapist I will not push you faster than you are willing to go,

    Q How long does therapy take?

    Depending on the issues, therapy can be brief (3 to 8 sessions) or up to 24 months. The thing to remember is that there are no magic bullet solutions in therapy. It requires work and commitment.
