Having worked in the field of psychology for over 20 years. My specialties include the following:
- Anxiety, OCD, PTSD & Phobias
- Eating Disorders
- Complex Trauma
- Date Therapy
- Sleep Disorders
I will work collaboratively with you to better understand your issues. Your treatment plan will be personalized, and I use empirically validated approaches when possible.
In couples therapy my goal is to help the two of you work better together as a couple. Understanding what you learned from your families, how you cope with stress, and communicate your feelings are the first steps towards deeper understanding.
Part of therapy is to rediscover what brought you together in the first place. Once there is a deeper understanding of your attachment styles, needs, strengths and areas for improvement, I will develop a plan for how you can find the love you’re looking for.

I do not accept insurance as a form of payment. However, I can offer a statement for reimbursement for you to submit to your insurance provider for out-of-network therapy services.

If you choose to use your insurance to pay for therapy, I am required to give you a diagnostic code that will go on your permanent medical record.
Most insurance companies do not pay for couples or family counseling as they do not see relationship issues as a medical problem.
I do all my scheduling myself, either on the phone, in person, or through email. If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so at least 48 hours in advance of your scheduled session time. You will be responsible for the full fee and charged for the time reserved when cancellations are received less than 48 hours in advance.
