“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged
to change ourselves.”

NOW ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS.
Please contact me to set up a free in-person consultation.
Our journey together begins with the co-creation of a safe and secure space where we can explore your vital questions and the challenges that life brings. My approach to counseling is oriented towards existential and transpersonal psychology, with its focus to help you piece together and live with a stable and sustainable sense of personal meaning. Your unique spirit will be deeply honored as I accompany you along the path to increased and continued well-being. If you struggle with issues connected to purpose, fulfillment, life satisfaction, depression or difficulty during life transitions, I believe you will find resonance with my approach.
Happiness is a daily practice, and to that end, I can help you develop a personal framework that will cultivate nourishing joy and holistic health. This might include a dynamic interface with silence, movement, personal prayer, or time for reflection.
I also work within the Positive Youth Development approach with adolescents and emerging adults who struggle with issues of low self-esteem, experience uncertainty or ambivalence towards life goals, or have trouble finding their place within their family or peer group. Please click here to learn more about my clinical approach to working with this specific demographic.
I work with older adolescents, adults, couples and families.
Living with Depression – From “feeling sad” to “clinically depressed,” I approach depression as a holistic experience which can be embraced and explored rather than a condition to ignore or easily remove. The presence of depression, once stabilized, is a call to increase one’s awareness and asks for serious life evaluation. Please contact me to schedule a free phone consultation to learn more about my supportive approach to living with depression.
Life Transitions – Life journeys take unexpected turns and your fragile sense of meaning can be easily disrupted. Times in between jobs, the loss of significant relationships, the death of a loved one, exploring your sexual orientation and gender identity, or periods when you have trouble answering the question “Who am I?” are important opportunities to cultivate resiliency and inner-strength. Please contact me to schedule a free phone consultation to learn more about how you can embrace uncertainty and progress towards stability.

Payment and Insurance Information: I charge $70-$100 per 50 min. session on a sliding fee scale. I reserve a limited number of spots in my case load specifically for lower-income clients. Please contact me if you have any questions about my fees.
Currently, I accept Aetna insurance. If you have out-of-network benefits for another insurance carrier you can be reimbursed a certain percentage of the fee per session. For example United Behavioral Health, and Anthem Blue Cross offer out-of-network benefits to their members. If approved by your insurance company, I can supply you with proper documentation to submit in order to claim this percentage.
