For 19 years I’ve offered comfortable, non-clinical settings that offer convenient patient access and confidential privacy. I don’t work a program—but will build a personalized plan made for you. It will be transparent and easy to move from office to life.
I help people to develop transferable skills and new ways of managing life. Clients can expect me to stick with them for the long haul.
Managing chaos in highly stressful situations takes a tremendous capacity. Individuals in distress can find clarity and freedom to rediscover innate gifts and passions in a spirit of hope.
For teens, I combine 11 years teaching experience in their world with psychological perspectives and supports. I understand brainstorms, learning disabilities, gifted sensitivities—and their spin.

The rate is $75 for an individual daytime appointment. $125 for evening appointments. Additional hours in the same week is $50, for Marital and Family Therapy. Typically, clients begin with 6 weeks of weekly visits, then move to bimonthly.
I do not take insurance. If you have insurance, consider your deductible and limits of service. If you have good coverage, you may want to find someone who takes insurance.
Find a therapist with the approach you want. My approach to individuals is psychodynamic. I’ll build a therapeutic framework we can work with, utilizing what you bring in, our relationship and interventions to help you move toward your goals I borrow from family systems for families and cognitive for marital therapy
A fit is also critical—Do you click with the therapist? Our first session is an introduction to see if there is a therapeutic fit. If you do not think it is a fit for any reason, there is no charge.
