Individual Therapy

There is suffering in life. Yet, within each of us exists the possibility of living in ways that feel less anguished, more fulfilled, and more deeply connected to ourselves and others.

 

Therapy can be a meaningful method that moves us towards whatever our goals may be by tapping into our unrealized potential.

 

 I aim to provide a space that allows for the development of psychological growth and healing while also offering tools to reduce symptoms and enrich everyday life. 

 

I welcome working with adults navigating challenges around trauma, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, depression, grief, life transitions, and existential questions.

 

I pull from several therapeutic orientations including psychoanalysis, attachment theory, mindfulness, and contemporary trauma models.

 

This means that in therapy we may explore how past dynamics affect current ways of relating to one’s self and others, address current patterns of unhelpful cognitions and behaviors, foster an air of self-compassion and acceptance, and utilize an understanding of modern neuroscience to promote resilience and well-being. 

I am currently accepting new patients for individual therapy.

 

Sessions are generally 45 minutes once or twice a week.

Who I Work With

I work with adults and couples on a variety of issues including:

  • Trauma  (Developmental + Relational)

  • Anxiety

  • Relationships 

  • Adverse Childhood Experiences

  • Panic Attacks

  • Depression 

  • Life Transitions

  • Grief/ Loss

Fees & Insurance

I am currently an in-network provider for the following insurance companies:

  • Aetna (including Aetna Student Health, PPO, HMO)

  • Consolidated Health Plan

I qualify as an out-of-network provider for most insurance plans that provide those benefits. It is important to contact your insurance company prior to beginning therapy to determine what behavioral health benefits you have through your plan.  

If you do not have Aetna or Consolidated Health Plans, the fee for therapy is established at the consultation.
