Therapy Services​

During times of struggle, grief, anxiety, depression, or major life changes finding support is the most important step. As your therapist, I will listen and hold the space where you can be your authentic self. Together we will untangle and demystify all the feelings, emotions, and trauma you are experiencing. We will identify your strengths, resilience, passion, and goals to make positive and healing change. We will work collaboratively to figure it out. My goal is to create a non-judgmental, supportive, nurturing, compassionate, and safe environment where you can explore your strengths and obstacles and challenge your old stories. My work is attuned to each individual’s, couple, or family’s needs, personality, and circumstances. I meet you where you are and let you be you. Maybe sprinkle a little humor too and giggle a bit along the way.


            My approach utilizes an integration of approaches including humanistic, IFS, attachment, EMDR Therapy, mindfulness, narrative, strength-based, culturally informed, and relational modalities/interventions. 


            Most importantly, my goal is to ensure that you feel seen, heard, understood and safe. Building a strong rapport and trust is my biggest priority.

Individuals

“Love and compassion must begin with kindness towards ourselves.” – Jack Kornfield

I work with adults suffering from anxiety, depression, complex trauma, generational trauma, PTSD, going through life transitions, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, career struggles, and health issues. We work together to process what is going on for you, identify your strengths, integrate skills and empower you to heal and make positive change.

I attune my approach and treatment plan to my clients goals and experience. We process what you are going through, unpack what we discover or uncover during our sessions. In addition, we build upon your strengths and highlight your resiliency. We will work together to build new skills, problem solve, create solutions and identify what might be holding you back. I hold space but you will also feel movement. 

Couples

“To be fully seen by somebody then and be loved anyhow — this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.” — Elizabeth Gilbert

Real intimacy is when you can love, tell the your truth and feel safe. In couples therapy, we will work together to find root of the disconnection and detachment. Or perhaps, bridge the gap that has grown between the couple or how we can repair the rupture. As your couples therapist, I will help to identify where you are stuck and what cycles keep you from real intimacy. You as a couple will learn to work together to build a new foundation where healthy communication and secure attachment is established and healthy skills are learned and embedded into the relationship.

In our sessions, you were learn about each other in a different way.

EMDR Therapy

Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a mental health treatment technique. This method involves moving your eyes a specific way while you process traumatic memories. EMDR's goal is to help you heal from trauma or other distressing life experiences. EMDR is a structured therapy that encourages the patient to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories.

EMDR therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and PTSD symptoms. Ongoing research supports positive clinical outcomes showing EMDR therapy as a helpful treatment for disorders such as anxiety, depression, OCD, chronic pain, addictions, and other distressing life experiences (Maxfield, 2019). 

I received my EMDR training from the EMDR Institute and working towards certification.

Cancellation Policy

Your appointment is a commitment of my time, reserved especially for you. Please provide at least 48 hours notice of any appointment changes or cancellations to avoid a full session fee charge. A "No Show" to an appointment, you will be required to pay the full cost of the session. Thank you for being mindful of this policy.

Payment

A credit card payment form must be completed as part of the intake paperwork. The card you put on file will be in the system and enabled to automatically collect payment the morning of session. I also accept cash or checks but a credit card form will still need to be completed.

Insurance

I do not take insurance at this time but I can provide you with a superbill for reimbursement.

Superbill

I am able to provide superbills at the end of each month upon request if you have a PPO health insurance plan that allows you to see “out of network providers.” You are responsible for paying the full fee of session out of pocket up front. When the superbill is provided to you, you are responsible for submitting this to your insurance company. Your insurance company will determine if you are eligible for any reimbursement. This will come directly from your insurance provider. Good practice is to check with your insurance company prior to committing to therapy to understand your plans coverage for mental health services with out of network providers (confirm that your coverage includes in-person and/or tele-therapy coverage for reimbursement. Also confirm session length and amount of sessions).

Good Faith Estimate

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. 

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services. 

You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. 

You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. 

If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

 For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises or call (800) 985-3059.
