[ About ]
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) who believes each of us is part of a larger picture that includes our families, culture and/or communities. These connections provide strength in many instances and possible limitations in others, especially if you have felt discounted or harmed by those closest to you. In our sessions together I will actively listen to you as you identify your obstacles, fears, hopes and desired goals. I will work to assist you as you find your answers within. I may assign targeted actions between sessions, depending on the presenting issues and the solutions we design together.
I have had the privilege of working with clients with a variety of concerns, including but not limited to:
- Relationship Concerns
- Self- esteem, boundary setting and assertiveness
- Gender Identity – Transgender individuals, and those who love them.
- Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual Concerns
- Reproductive Health – Fertility difficulties, Pregnancy loss, Family planning, Postpartum anxiety, Postpartum depression, Parenting
- Trauma – Survivors of sexual, verbal, physical, emotional or spiritual abuse
- Depression and Anxiety
- Grief and Loss
- Life transitions
- Effects of addiction on self and family
You are a person with a unique story and set of circumstances. I believe in tailoring our work to your specific needs, consequently my style and therapeutic techniques may vary somewhat from person to person. It is by working in an interactive, collaborative and supportive style that I may be most effective in guiding you toward your desired goals.

Some of my services may be billable to insurance.
In network: Preferred One, Medical Assistance, BCBS and UCare.
Out of Network insurance: Some companies are better than others about reimbursing you and it is your responsibility to know your policy and coverage. I will provide you with the documentation necessary to file a claim.
Some clients prefer to pay out of pocket due to privacy concerns or not wanting to have a mental health diagnosis (which insurance companies require) on their records. This is something I am happy to speak with you about if you have questions.
All payments or co-pays are due at the beginning of each session. For your convenience, credit cards are accepted as well as personal checks or cash should you prefer.
