  • What kind of counseling do you specialize in?
    As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I work primarily with individuals and couples that are struggling with relational issues. A lot of the work I do is focused on how our relationships with ourselves, and with others, change over time. Many people begin to question the love, faith and purpose in their lives as they age, and also when difficulties arise, like infidelity, illness, and loss. Goals and desires look very different during the mid-twenties and thirties than they do during the mid-fifties and sixties. My clients have found my services to be especially helpful in working through: • Defining and managing their expectations of relationships • Infidelity and affair recovery • Desire discrepancy • Sexuality and aging • Illness and end of life issues • Grief due to the loss of self, a relationship, or the life of a loved one
  • Do you take insurance?
    Though I don’t accept insurance, I do keep several appointments open each month for clients in need of sliding scale services. The cost of these therapy sessions is based solely on income. Please call if you’d like more information. Payment is due upon service, or in advance of the scheduled time, if purchased as a multi-appointment package. I accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express, as well as most debit cards. If you are planning to file with your insurance company, I can offer you a monthly superbill to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Please check with your insurance provider to learn about your out-of-network mental health coverage.
  • What if my partner refuses to come to therapy?
    Attending therapy is a very personal decision, and not everyone understands how therapy works, or how it might improve a relationship. For couple’s therapy to be effective, both partners need to consider their own contribution to the difficulties, as well as how their patterns of communication have led to disconnect and conflict. I believe that it's ideal to have your partner’s participation in therapy, however, if this is not possible, then I encourage you to consider making an appointment for individual therapy. Therapy is a wonderful place to gain clarity about your own values and needs, as well as how your relationship impacts your well-being.
  • How will I know if therapy is working for me?
    Therapy is definitely not one size fits all, and the solution to your dilemma is likely to be as individual as you are. Generally, you will know that therapy has been helpful when you feel a little better about your circumstances, or about how the challenges you’ve been facing are impacting your day-to-day experiences. Therapy is not intended to go on forever without clear goals and expectations. Working collaboratively, we’ll figure out what it is that you’d like to accomplish, and I’ll check in with you regularly to see how you feel about the therapeutic experience, as well as the direction in which we are moving.
  • Can I bring my kids to therapy?
    I love little ones (I’m a grandmother of three) but my therapeutic approach is geared toward working exclusively with adults. If your child or adolescent needs an assessment and/or therapy, I’d be happy to suggest some clinicians that specialize in that work. My practice is also not set up for children to be left unaccompanied while their parents are in therapy.
