A psychotherapy practice treating adults experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, and unresolved trauma
The stress of day-to-day life can be overwhelming. It can cause us to feel anxious, sad, and disconnected from ourselves and the people who are most important to us.
Therapy can be a powerful resource that allows you to be seen, heard, and supported. Dedicating your time and energy towards improving your mental well being and focusing on yourself is not always easy. For this reason, I strive to provide a safe, compassionate, and nurturing environment in which you can feel comfortable leaning into your vulnerabilities, and exploring your thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
In my practice, therapy is a collaborative process and I work with each of my clients to create an individualized treatment plan that meets their unique needs and goals. I can help you achieve greater fulfillment, balance, and happiness and satisfaction in your life.
Many people think that psychotherapy is only for those with mental health concerns, however, the truth is that therapy can benefit anyone who is looking to gain insight, achieve greater self-awareness, build resilience, and an enhanced sense of well-being.
My approach is a blend between proven, evidence-based treatment modalities including Trauma-Informed Therapy, Attachment Science, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Somatic & Mindfulness-Based Techniques (Integrative Approaches).

My clients report that as a result of therapy they feel less anxious and depressed, increasingly self-aware, and better able to manage stress and life transitions. They possess greater confidence, are fully engaged, and are enjoying their lives, again.
Couples share that they have gained a better understanding of their relationship dynamics, have regained trust, learned effective communication and coping skills, and developed a deeper emotional connection leading to greater intimacy.
“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.”
Life Is So Much More Difficult When Your Anxiety & Stress Are Out Of Control
Anxiety and stress are a message that something in your life is not going well and needs to be addressed. You may have big emotions caused by a painful breakup, unfulfilling job, insecurity, loneliness, or unresolved trauma that you haven’t effectively dealt with, yet.
What is your anxiety trying to teach you?
It’s time to listen to the message and heal whatever has been hurting. The right treatment will enable you to effectively overcome your anxiety
Without proper treatment, anxiety can and will linger.
Which of these anxiety and stress related symptoms do you experience?
- Excessive worries that don't go away even in the absence of a stressor
- Feeling restless, wound-up, on-edge, or out-of-control
- Headaches, digestive troubles, dizziness, or shaking
- Feeling easily fatigued
- Having difficulty concentrating; your mind going blank
- Being irritable, angry, and snapping at others
- Having muscle tension or jaw clenching
- Difficulty controlling feelings of worry
- Having sleep problems, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, restlessness, or unsatisfying sleep
- Appetite changes, you’ve noticed that your appetite has decreased, or perhaps you’re hungrier than usual, choosing comfort, or less than healthy foods to soothe your emotions
Meaningful Change is Possible
As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I specialize in providing psychotherapy using evidence-based, scientific approaches, including Trauma-informed care, Attachment Theory, and integrative techniques designed to help you achieve your best results.
I embrace diversity and affirm every individual's unique journey. I’m committed to creating a safe, affirming, inclusive, and supportive space for all, regardless of race, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
My philosophy is rooted in principles of social justice, emphasizing equality and respect for all. In my practice, you are valued, appreciated, and celebrated for who you are. Together, we'll work towards growth, healing, and self-discovery, honoring your unique journey and identity.
You’ll find me to be warm, genuine, understanding, and a compassionate listener. I create an environment of acceptance, one in which you can comfortably share your thoughts and practice new and healthier ways of managing your feelings.
What Happens in Session?
If you’ve never been to therapy before, you may be wondering what you can expect during a session.
Most importantly, your session will be wholly focused on you, your needs, and your agenda.
I’ll take the time to truly get to know you, and together, we’ll build a relationship based on integrity, mutual respect, and, of course, complete confidentiality.
You can be assured of a safe, non-judgmental space to think, share, explore new ideas, identify actionable strategies, and practice fresh approaches while building your resilience.
You’ll benefit from psychoeducation, skill-building, and guidance and will be empowered to achieve the profound results you are seeking. You’ll receive support in exploring your options, gaining clarity, and developing resilience to navigate your path forward
Prepare to become fully engaged, and develop more knowledge, self-awareness, and profound wisdom, leading to transformative shifts in your mindset and behavior. You will reclaim your inner focus, energy, and, most of all, your joy.

The full session fee will be charged for appointments that are missed, canceled, or rescheduled without 24 hours notice
This practice is currently not in-network with any insurance companies, so I do not bill directly.
With PPO insurances plans, I’m considered an out-of-network provider. Most PPO insurance companies do cover a portion of out-of-network services. This means that you may be reimbursed in full, or in part, for my psychotherapy services, depending upon your insurance coverage.
If you wish to use your out-of-network benefits, please request a receipt for psychotherapy services (called a superbill) which will include all necessary information for you to submit a claim directly to your insurance company.
Psychotherapy may also qualify for reimbursement using a Health Savings account or Flexible Savings Account. Many people enjoy using this option because it is pre-taxed income, which greatly reduces the overall cost of therapy.
Couples Therapy is not usually covered by health insurance because it’s not deemed “medically necessary.” Relationship issues are not considered a mental health diagnosis, which is a requirement for health insurance companies to pay for therapy.

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