Professional Statement

  • Are you fighting too much with your partner? Are you terrified that you will lose your relationship? Are you feeling unable to do the things you want in your life? Making the decision to talk to a professional, a stranger for that matter, can feel quite uncomfortable. And yet, it is exactly the decision necessary for getting your life on the track you want.
  • Integrating evidence based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I work with young adults, professionals, and couples to transform their life from one that is limiting to one that is productive, fulfilling and limitless. I specialize in providing couple's therapy to all types of couples and partners including those within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ) community.
  • I am a competent, compassionate and attentive clinician with a deep passion for my work. Understanding who you are and what works for you is the most important thing to me.
  • I am an out of network provider for most insurance companies, which means your insurance company will likely reimburse you some, if not all of your fees, for seeing me. With your permission, I am able to submit your insurance claims electronically and request that your reimbursement check be sent directly to you. I'll be glad to assist you in understanding this process. Book an appointment with me today and begin working towards your goals.
