I believe that change occurs best in an authentic client-therapist relationship.
Along with the client I create a friendly, caring environment from which people can feel safe to explore and express their authentic selves. Through this relationship I believe a person is freer to go into the world more joyous and alive. Clients are better able to connect to others in relationship as well as express themselves in work and play.
Through specialized training I have come to understand the relationship between the body, mind and feeling. I believe that the three are woven together and all need to be contacted in therapy to create lasting change.
About Payment and Insurance
Some notes on the logistics of working with me:
- Sessions last 45 minutes, though I sometimes book longer sessions if the need arises.
- I have a flexible schedule. I also do phone, skype and facetime sessions.
- I accept the following forms of payment: cash, personal checks, and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa & American Express).
I know many people are interested in using their insurance to pay for therapy. With PPO insurance companies, my services are usually covered as an out-of-network provider – if your policy has out-of-network coverage. I’m happy to contact your insurance company to find out details of your coverage (including coverage, deductibles and co-pays).
For out-of-network coverage, my normal policy is to provide you with a detailed invoice, which you can then submit to your insurance company. Under certain circumstances I will do the insurance billing for you – please ask when we meet each other.
