You can feel better. I can help.

Licensed Professional CounselorQuality of life suffers – we suffer – when we feel pushed, pulled, judged, pressured, or used by people who are important to us. We look away from that pain and cope – at home, at work, and in the world. We lose ourselves and our dreams. If that’s you, individual counseling or group therapy can help.

Most likely there are patterns you are repeating. And, even if some of the people in your life are difficult, there’s a reason you have those people in your life, and there are ways you relate to them that you can change. You have the power to feel better. You have the power to do better, too.

As a licensed professional counselor and certified group counselor, I work with successful people who want to be more successful, and who want more satisfying work and personal lives. I see clients alone or in a group, offering both individual counseling and group counseling. And I help them identify the patterns in their lives, how those patterns make them feel, and what they can do about it.

In my groups, clients give thoughtful feedback to each other. They learn to trust and be trusted. An experience like that can heal old wounds. I do the same with individuals. I listen deeply and give

Licensed Professional Counselorfeedback that helps a person find his or her own way to a better life, inside and out.

You don’t have to live a life in turmoil. Whether you’re dealing with stress at work or are living with depression or anxiety, I can help.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Can I get any reimbursement from my insurance company for therapy?

A: In some cases.

If you have insurance with an “out of network” benefit, your insurance may reimburse you for some of the cost of the treatment.

You should check with your insurance company to find out about benefit limits, deductible charges, and other important aspects of your insurance plan.

I can provide a receipt that will include all the information necessary for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.

Q: Why don’t you take insurance?

A: Several reasons:

  1. Heath insurance companies require you to be diagnosed with a mental health disorder in order to be covered. Most people I work with have problems with life and do not need to be diagnosed with a mental illness in order to make progress.
  1. Health insurance companies seek a great deal of your personal information when you use insurance to pay for your therapy. I cannot guarantee that information I give to the insurance company on your behalf will be protected and that your privacy will be respected.
  1. Insurance companies push themselves into your therapy by “reviewing treatment” and “managing care.” It doesn’t help to add a third party to the therapy conversation. I am dedicated to creating a personal and unique relationship with you — but the insurance company treats you and your family as a statistical abstraction. The two views are not compatible.

For these reasons, I find it makes for better care, and a better therapeutic relationship, to give up insurance company benefits for psychotherapy.
