Individual therapy

I work with individuals and couples from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds and am LGBTQ affirming.

My most commonly addressed issues in individual therapy are:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship challenges
  • Grief & loss
  • Life transitions/life path
  • Wanting to become more active (see below for Walk & Talk Therapy)
  • Identity confusion/development
  • Self-worth & inner critic
  • Boundary-setting & communication
  • Perfectionism
  • Stress & feeling overwhelmed
My special areas of interest are:
  • Millennials and Gen-Zers with life path inquiries
  • Individuals who want to become more active but struggle to overcome barriers
 
Issues I do not treat:

I am not (and cannot be) an expert in every area. I consider it my professional responsibility to refer clients out for specific needs that should be treated by another therapist with special training in those areas. This includes severe eating disorders and addiction. I also do not see children or families in my practice.

Couples therapy

I work with couples at all stages, including dating, engaged, partnered, married, or separating/divorcing.

I commonly address the following topics with couples:

  • Communication
  • Connectedness
  • Physical and emotional intimacy
  • Working better as a team
  • Meeting each other’s needs

Teletherapy

I reserve several slots in my schedule for teletherapy clients because I value client accessibility and convenience.

Virtual video sessions are conducted through Simple Practice, which is a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform developed specifically for the purpose of connecting clients and therapists.

Walk & talk therapy

Walk & talk therapy means that the client and the therapist walk together outside during therapy instead of sitting in an office.

Clients may choose walk & talk therapy for a variety of reasons:

  • feeling more relaxed and open outside the office
  • the healing and restorative benefits of fresh air, sunshine, and movement
  • accountability for consistent exercise

 

If you are interested in Walk & Talk Therapy, please mention this during our initial assessment session in the office so that we can discuss whether it’s an appropriate fit for our work together.

Session cost

Insurance

I am an out-of-network provider and do not directly bill insurance.

If you’re hoping to find an in-network provider, www.psychologytoday.com is a useful resource.

Estimated number of sessions

Every client’s needs and circumstances are different.

As a general rule, I recommend committing to at least five sessions, as it will take several sessions for us to get to know each other. Without this introductory period, it would be impossible and unethical for me to provide specific feedback and for us to develop an appropriate treatment plan.

After the first initial sessions, we will determine the frequency of visits and collaboratively create goals for therapy. In general, I recommend beginning with weekly sessions to build momentum and then tapering to bi-weekly or monthly, when appropriate.
