About this pro

I help clients overcome their anxiety by challenging negative beliefs, coping with uncomfortable feelings, and facing their fears so that they can start living the lives they have always wanted. I am in my fifth year of private practice, specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.  I have my doctorate from the University of Denver, and I use only the best evidence-based practices to help clients conquer their anxiety and depression.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I can set up a free consultation either over the phone or in person, and use this time to answer any questions and let the client get to know me to see if I am a good fit for therapy for them.  After that, we schedule the first appointment and go from there.  I typically recommend meeting either weekly or every other week for therapy to be most effective.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have my Doctorate (PsyD) from the University of Denver, Graduate School of Professional Psychology.  I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.  Since graduating, I have attended specialized trainings for the treatment of anxiety disorders and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder.  

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My standard price is $120 per session.  All sessions are 45-50 minutes in length.  I offer a sliding scale fee to those clients in financial need.  I can also accept many insurance plans.  

How did you get started in this business?

I graduated from graduate school with my doctorate and decided to go straight into private practice so I could run my own business doing the work that I love with the clients whom I am most effective with.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I work with clients from age 16-80, but the majority of my work has been with young to middle-aged adults.  I have worked with individuals with a variety of mental health issues including anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, and depression.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am fond of the way people have responded as a community in the wake of natural disasters (Hurricanes Harvey and Irma), with people coming together to volunteer and donate their time and resources to those in need.  I love hearing stories about the local heros that let people in for shelter as they are escaping difficult and dangerous situations.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a company in your area of expertise?

I think you prospective clients should always do a little bit of research on a few therapists to get a sense of who they are and making sure they are getting someone who is a good fit for them.  A strong fit and therapeutic relationship are some of the most critical factors in success in therapy.

What questions should customers think through before talking to companies about their needs?

What am I looking for in therapy?  How will I know if this therapy is successful?  What qualities am I looking for in a therapist whom I can trust?
