I help people with many different symptoms, life issues and stressors, including:
- Anxiety and Panic
- Depression and Mood Instability
- Problematic Relationship Patterns and Issues with Intimacy
- Trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress
- Eating Disorders and Body Image Concerns
- Lack of Self-Esteem and Assertiveness
- Difficulty Managing Emotions and Anger
- Compulsive and Addictive Behaviors
- Major Life or Career Transitions
- Grief and Loss
I use a number of psychotherapy approaches, the majority of which have demonstrated strong research support, and which I often integrate based on individuals’ needs and goals:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT); Interpersonal Therapy (IPT); Skills Training in Affect and Interpersonal Regulation (STAIR); Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE); Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT); Sensorimotor Psychotherapy; Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT); and Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy.
Consultation and Psychotherapy
Treatment will begin with an initial consultation in order to evaluate your needs. Over the first few sessions, we will develop a treatment plan that will identify specific goals to guide us. Alternatively, I will provide recommendations if you or I feel that another treatment would be a better match for you.
We'll schedule weekly 45-minute sessions. The frequency and duration of sessions can be altered and tailored to your specific circumstances. When needed (and with your permission), I will consult with your other providers to ensure a coordinated treatment plan. If you are considering medication, I work closely with a number of experienced psychiatrists who can assist with that part of your treatment.
Fees and Insurance
Please call or email to discuss my fee. I do not work directly with insurance companies, but many plans allow for you to select an out-of-network provider and will provide some reimbursement. I will assist you with this process. While you will be responsible for payment weekly or monthly, I will actively work with you to help you obtain the maximum out-of-network benefits from your insurance. Policies vary significantly and I recommend checking with your insurance company to determine the extent of your out-of-network mental health (or "behavioral health") benefits.
