"I believe all people have the ability to grow, change and live the life they want."

WHAT DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN? 

I specialize in working with teens, young adults, and their families. I have a passion for working with teens and young adults with a variety of mental health issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, self-harming behaviors, and substance abuse issues. I believe in collaborating with my clients and their families, when appropriate, to help them identify and achieve the steps needed to live the life they want.  I believe that all teens, young adults, and families have the ability to grow, change and live happy, purposeful, and fulfilling lives. 

IS THERAPY RIGHT FOR ME? 

Therapy is a place to explore your thoughts, feelings, and worries without shame or judgment. The decision to seek out therapy is a personal choice made by many teens, young adults, and their families. Sometimes my clients choose to work on a long-standing mental health struggle such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, addiction, PTSD, or grief and loss issues. Other times individuals seek out therapy as a way to develop strategies for personal growth and/or life skills. Sometimes therapy is useful during times of significant transition or stress such as a divorce in the family, loss of a loved one, launching into adulthood, bullying, or trauma. Therapy is right for anyone who has a desire to learn more about themselves and make positive changes in their overall wellness, relationships, or daily life. 

WHEN IS THERAPY OVER? 

Therapy is a place where my clients "come, grow, and go." I believe in empowering my clients with the skills they need to conquer any life challenges that may come their way. Therapy is not over when every element of a client’s life is perfect. Rather therapy is complete when a client can say, "Despite the fact that I know challenging situations will come my way in the future, I know have the tools to conquer them." 

HOW MUCH DOES THERAPY COST? 

I bill $200 for a 45-50 minute session and I accept cash, checks, and all major credit cards. I do not bill insurance, however I provide you with a statement at the end of each month that you can submit to your insurance company.
