I place an emphasis on the strength of the therapeutic relationship and my first priority is to build the trust necessary for growth. My goal is to create an environment that is validating, non-judgmental, and genuine, and at the same time, encourages effective change. I strive to facilitate an experience that helps people reduce suffering, develop the skills they need, and create a sense of meaning in their lives.
While I provide a number of specialized treatments, my approach is often integrative and always individualized to meet the unique needs of each person I work with. Treatment specializations include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for impulsive behaviors, problems with anger, chaotic relationships, and people who struggle to cope effectively with intense emotions; Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT) for depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and other difficulties; and Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP) for chronic interpersonal problems.
**While I am an out-of-network provider, this does not mean you cannot get reimbursed by your insurance company for my services. I offer the complimentary service of submitting claims to the insurance company on behalf of my clients. This removes the hassle that clients often have to endure with out-of-network providers who require clients to send receipts in themselves. My submissions are made electronically which allows for the fastest reimbursement possible. Shortly after I submit a claim, the insurance company will send you a check directly (the amount depends on your plan's out-of-network benefits). If there is any question as to whether services are reimbursable, please check with your insurance company.**
