Teaming Up

Together, we’ll work towards relief of stresses and symptoms.

Therapy can be beneficial to anyone who is experiencing discontent in their current quality of life, whether it be from past or current trauma, difficulty controlling their emotions or moods, negative thoughts or behaviors, issues in their relationships, experiencing a change or life transition, or circumstances that feel out of their control.

Providing
support

I provide individual therapy for adults, ages 18+. My treatment specialties include, but are not limited to:

· Trauma and PTSD
· Anxiety
· Depression
· Stress Management
· Relationship Concerns
· EMDR

01

EMDR or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy is an evidenced-based therapy approach, designed to help individuals heal from the longstanding effects of negative experiences or trauma.

When you hear the word “trauma”, you may assume that term refers only to overtly traumatic experiences, such as a time when you felt your life was in danger (this is what we refer to as “Big T” trauma). More often, however, many people experience what we call “little t” trauma, which are less overt adverse life experiences, such as a series of uncomfortable interactions with a family member that may have even seemed normal at the time. Both types of trauma, little and big, can have major impacts on your overall wellbeing.

02

In a general sense, when we go through a neutral or positive experience, our brains are able to easily process this information and store it in our past. When we endure a negative or traumatic experience, however, sometimes our brains get “stuck” when trying to process this information. Being “stuck” can result in uncomfortable thoughts, emotions, and sensations that are easily triggered.

EMDR is a process that uses structured eye movements, along with focusing on the negative experience, to help our brains correctly process the information and therefore decrease the uncomfortable symptoms.

03

EMDR was originally created for the treatment of PTSD (Posttraumatic Stress Disorder), but it has since been supported to be effective in treating depression, anxiety, panic, phobias, complicated grief, and more. EMDR can be an extremely helpful therapy on its own, but it can also help facilitate healing and change in combination with other therapy approaches.

During our first few sessions, we can discuss more about EMDR therapy, and if it may be a helpful part of our work together. For more detailed information on EMDR and its research support, please visit the EMDR International Association website.

Understanding Costs

My work with clients is tailored for each person.

After an initial foundation-setting session, we’ll develop an action plan and start our work on the path towards a healthier and more fulfilled life for you. Consistency is key when establishing good habits and addressing your health needs, so we’ll work together to establish a rhythm for our sessions that fits your needs and schedule.

Fees & Payment Options

All clients start with an initial intake session, which is a critical and comprehensive foundational appointment. Once we’ve completed the the intake session, you’ll move to follow-on sessions. 

Initial Intake Session

$200

Follow-on Sessions

$165

Payment Options & Details

I do not accept any insurance, and thus work within a self-pay agreement with clients. Self-pay services allow clients increased privacy and control over their treatment. Due to this freedom, I can offer more specific, individualized treatment for clients. We can work together, intuitively and creatively, to find an approach that works best for you, without interference. Self-pay services offer two major benefits to both the provider & the client:

01

I am not bound by the insurance company’s confines of having to report a specific diagnosis. I am able to help people who struggle in parts of their life and need guidance and will truly benefit from therapy but may not meet the full criteria for a diagnosis.

02

We avoid insurance companies seeking information about your treatment, documenting information, or limiting our work together in any way, such as treatment plans or number of sessions.
Cash, check, and all major credit cards are accepted. You may also use Flexible Spending Accounts and Health Savings Accounts to pay for services. Payment is due at time of service.

Cancellation Policy

I request a 24-hour notice for cancellations. If an appointment has been scheduled and you do not present, or cancel the appointment with less than 24 hours notice, please note the full appointment fee will be charged.
