Getting Started

Most people experiencing some kind of emotional pain want to get better, but may not know where or how to get help. Sometimes people seek therapy to address specific issues or problems that recently occurred such as a sudden illness, the loss of a loved one, or the end of a relationship. Other people may have been carrying their pain for many years and no longer want it to keep them from having the life they want. Whatever your reason for beginning therapy I am ready to work with you to create a framework that allows you to live a happier and more fulfilling life.   

How to Begin:

Thinking about picking up the phone and having the first conversation can be intimidating. Our first conversation by phone may range anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes where I will have you briefly share why you are coming in and what you are looking for. I provide some evening and Saturday appointments in addition to normal Weekday hours.


Sessions are 50 minutes long. My full fee is $200 per session, however I will work on a sliding scale when appropriate. I am a Medicare provider and will bill Medicare as well as any supplemental insurance you have on a monthly basis. I do not accept any other insurance, but will provide a monthly invoice of our sessions for you to submit to your PPO insurance for reimbursement. I accept payment by check or cash.


Below are the intake forms which we will be going over in our initial meeting. They will be provided for you, or you may print and fill them out before we meet.
