My experience and knowledge for being in this profession for a long time. I really listen with empathy and give you my full attention. I try to make sure that we are the right match to work together since that makes the therapy experience easier. Please do not make your decision solely on the reviews since in our profession due to confidentially we can not request them. I can give you a free fifteen minutes phone consultation.
Although it is difficult when people is struggling, it is an honor being able to help someone and provide the space and support they need to flourish or to go back to that part of themselves that is kind of loss or hide behind the struggles they are experiencing when they come to me.
Ana is wonderful. She is kind, caring, and professional.
I have a conversation with the potential patient first over the phone to make sure that we are the right fit and then I schedule the intake appoitment which takes about 60 minutes. After that I see my patients at least for the first two months once a week for 50 to 60 minutes sessions and after that we re-asses and move to every other week sessions if appropriate.
I have a Master in Social work and my clinical license. I have completed specialized trainings on Postpartum Depression. I have to complete every two years 30 hours of training in different areas in order to keep my clinical license. I have completed the first level of the Gottman method to do marriage therapy.
The price for individual therapy is $130 for the intake session and $110 after that. I also accept some insurances such as cigna, united and avmed.
