I provide individual, couples, or family counseling. I work with adults and adolescents 12+ and I specialize in the following areas:
In addition to my primary areas of focus, I also have experience in:
I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as my main modality. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy looks at the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We identify irrational thinking or unhelpful thought processes and learn how to challenge and replace them. While I draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I also recognize that therapy is not a "one-size-fits-all." I tailor my approach according to the needs of the client. I provide trauma-informed care and will explore any history of impacting traumas that may be relevant to a client's current struggles. I facilitate clients through relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation etc; in order to promote positive coping techniques and self-care. I utilize a strengths based perspective in every session to acknowledge and build off of the strengths and resiliencies already formed within a person.
I am certified in Prepared and Enriched to provide couples counseling (pre-marital and marital.) Through Prepared and Enriched I can provide pre-marital counseling to help couples identify their strengths and growth areas prior to marriage. In identifying and resolving growth areas prior to marriage, it can empower the couple to enter into marriage with a stronger foundation and navigate any future challenges more smoothly. I also implement the Prepared and Enriched program with couples who are already married and may be seeking ways to enhance areas of their marriage to create a deeper connection.
For clients whom may have challenges with transportation I offer phone sessions or video chat sessions as an alternative!
My rate is $100 for 50min and I accept any debit or credit cards, cash, or check. I also work with some clients on a sliding scale fee depending on the availability of these slots. Clients with insurance can also contact their insurance provider to inquire if they have an "out of network provider" benefit. If a client has this benefit, this means that their insurance will reimburse them a portion of the cost to see a provider (such as myself) who is not in network.
