Finding a therapist that feels comfortable and right for you is essential. You want someone who is genuine, fully hears you, and supports your growth outside of the therapy office. Your therapy experience needs to be the right fit for you and we can incorporate a variety of approaches into each session so that our relationship and work is comfortable. I offer individual and some joint therapy sessions and we will work collaboratively with one another to address your specific needs. Clients have stated they leave sessions feeling valued, heard, and empowered to take what they have learned and put it into practice. One of my passions is "Fresh Air Therapy" and we can hold sessions outdoors if you are interested in just sitting and talking or walking in nature.
One of the most important things we can do for ourselves is to learn what we value in life. Discover what type of life we want to live and what kind of person do we want to be. I offer sessions soley based on discovering your values and supporting you on how to put those into action. We will meet for a total of five 45 minute sessions weekly to begin your values journey.
I also work with those who wish to bring their Christian faith into their therapeutic journey and explore how their faith can be in alignment with their therapeutic goals and concerns. Not everyone I work with is Christian, however, for those who are and want to include this in therapy, I want to support you.
A person can expect to experience many changes throughout their life which can result in increased stress and mental health responses such as anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. I want to support you in navigating not only the changes in your life, but the difficult thoughts and feelings that come along with them.
I incorporate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a Somatic Psychotherapy approach, Natural Flow EMDR, present moment awareness, movement, and yoga techniques into our time together, as I have witnessed the powerful impact they have on a person's mental and physical well-being. Please see the FAQ page for service fees and more information.

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan/coverage or a Federal health care program, or who are not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage and/or are self-pay, both orally and in writing of their ability upon request or at the time of scheduling services to receive a Good Faith Estimate of charges. Please reference the link here to understand more aobut this act as of January 1, 2022.
Do you provide teletherapy and/or in person sessions?
Yes, I do offer teletherapy services. I also offer outdoor sessions at request and if I have availability in my schedule. I find that I really enjoy offering support through telehealth and that my own mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical well being has benefited since choosing to work this way. My clients have reported teletherapy as being very helpful and just as effective as traditional office therapy. They state not having to take the extra time to drive to an office and being able to engage in therapy from the comfort of their own homes as two of the many benefits. It is certainly not for everyone, however, I do suggest being open minded and giving it a try!
Do you accept any insurance?
I am self pay only and I don't accept any insurance at this time. Being a self pay provider allows me to provide the highest quality of care that can be unique to your own individual therapy needs. Some clients choose not to use their insurance due to confidentiality, as a diagnosis is required to submit to insurance companies. Choosing to self pay upholds this confidentiality. Some clients also have high co-pays and choose to self pay for this reason. I am happy to discuss this option more with you in our initial phone consulation. I do require a credit card be placed on file before sessions begin.
What does the first session look like?
The first 1-3 sessions will include reviewing the paperwork and intake information you filled out after scheduling a session with me, a review of my practice policies and consent for treatment, and the beginning of conversation and a therapeutic rapport so that we can begin getting to really know one another. I love providing helpful tools and information from the very first time we meet, so the work and journey really begin in our first session. There is no timetable or "agenda" in my approach. I am here to meet you where you are and take it session by session to work towards your goals and needs.
