MY APPROACH

I strongly believe in evidence-based practice and specialize in third-wave cognitive-behavioral therapy, which emphasizes a mindfulness and acceptance-based approach.

 

Third-wave cognitive-behavioral therapies help people learn skills to handle difficult thoughts and feelings so that they can take action to make their life better.

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

My approach involves becoming

 

AWARE of your thoughts and the ways in which they are impacting you

 

OPEN to your emotions including difficult emotions as a way of healing

 

 ENGAGED in your life in a way that reflects your values

FEES & INSURANCE

50 - 60 minute session - $250

I offer a limited number of reduced-fee slots for those experiencing financial hardship.

I am not affiliated with any insurance companies. If you are interested in using your insurance, please contact your insurance company directly and inquire if they provide partial reimbursement for an out-of-network psychologist for the following service codes: 

90791 Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation

90834 Psychotherapy 45 minutes

90837 Psychotherapy 60 minutes 

 

Also inquire if you have a deductible that needs to be met. 

I can provide you with monthly paperwork (i.e., a superbill) to submit to them for reimbursement. Alternatively, you may also be able to use a health savings account (HSA) or flexible spending account (FSA) to pay for therapy.

I require a credit card to be on file and have a full-fee 24 hour cancellation policy.
