Psychotherapy, or therapy for short, is a meeting between you and I done either in person or by secure video where we focus on you and your goals. Every session is unique, and no two people have the same experience in therapy. Therapy must begin with an assessment of how you are feeling, acting and thinking as well as your goals so our first session is often called a “intake” or “assessment.” Then we make a treatment plan together including how often we will meet together, for how long (usually 55 min) and how we will know when our work is done.
Self pay rate: $100 per 55 min session, due at the time of the session

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a specific type of therapy focused on the negative belief systems we develop from life experiences. It uses the brains ability to heal in order to find positive beliefs the brain has not been able to believe to be true on its own. Eye movements or other left-right movements are used to activate the Adaptive Information Processing system in our brain. EMDR was first developed in the 1980’s and has been researched extensively since that time. Many clients come to me wanting to experience EMDR or having heard about the life changing results it has led to.
I am fully trained in EMDR, am a EMDRIA member and am working toward Certification in order to be as proficient as possible in this type of healing. Please click HERE to visit the EMDRIA website for more information.
People were meant to live in communities, not as isolated beings. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I am uniquely trained to treat not just individuals, but the relationships between them. Family therapy is done when multiple members of a family are present and the relationships between them are the focus of our work. At times it is appropriate for me to do both individual and family therapy with a client, but it really depends on the family. I often see adolescent’s alone and with their families given the importance of strong family relationships at this age and find this a very beneficial format to work with those between the ages of 13-21.
