What Happens?

We talk and create relationship as I learn your story and discover how you have arrived at this place in your life. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help you process emotions and understand the impact they have on your physical being. My approach is trauma informed and relationship oriented, and acknowledges the mind/body connection in mental wellness, as well as the physiological and relational impacts.  

Sessions are 50 minutes in length. 

My office hours are: Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri. 12pm-7pm.

Can Therapy Really Help?

Yes. Therapy can give you support, validation, coping skills, and strategies to change your perspective and your behaviors, especially around relationships.  It can give you greater peace of mind and help you tolerate difficult feelings and situations. As your therapist, I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space for you to express yourself authentically and through this relationship you may feel that I “get” you in a way that no one else has. When this happens, it is extremely powerful and transformative. 

Please remember, therapy is for you, alone. It cannot change other people or external circumstances. Therapists provide psychoeducation, feedback, and guidance, but they don’t give advice or answers. If you’re new to therapy, or are exploring unprocessed trauma, it’s important to know that therapy may make you feel worse before you feel better. We work through this with open communication and unconditional support.

I can’t tell you how long it will take for you to feel better. But, generally, the more you put into therapy, the more you’ll get out of it.

Paying Out-Of-Pocket

Some of the benefits of paying out-of-pocket for services are:


You may find that when you use your insurance to cover therapy, you are often restricted to “in network providers.”  Most, if not all insurance plans also limit the type of service you can receive and the number of sessions you can attend in a calendar year. Simply put, paying for services out-of-pocket allows you to choose the therapist that you would like to see, when you need to see them, without the hassle of figuring out co-pays or in some cases getting pre-authorization for treatment, or being limited to a set amount of visits per year.  I cannot emphasize enough that relationships and trust are built over time, and a good Client-Therapist relationship is known to increase positive treatment outcomes. Plus, wait times to see therapists who take insurance is often months, vs. out-of-pocket therapists who have much more flexibility with their calendar.


Therapy often includes sensitive information that you may or may not want to be shared with others. When providing therapy services using insurance, at minimum, a therapist must submit a claim with a mental health diagnosis to ensure that services are “medically necessary.” Many clients choose to pay out-of-pocket to keep their information private rather than have it recorded in their permanent health record.


Some people seek therapy due to poor communication or for relational difficulties. Some may simply be wrestling with inner conflict or decision making, and personal discernment. Some folks seek therapy as a preventative measure to learn new skills or prevent problems from getting worse (support as needed). For these reasons and many others, individuals may not meet criteria for a clinical mental health diagnosis. Paying out-of-pocket allows you seek therapy simply for personal growth.
