Below you will find information about me and my Practice

 

About Me

Like many who live in Los Angeles, I am a transplant.  I was born and raised in New England, lived 6 years in the midwest, and then recently moved to California where I started my private practice.

I have worked in the mental health field in many different forms for the last 10 years.  Before working in private practice, I worked in a variety of agency settings  providing individual therapy, group therapy, couple therapy, crisis intervention, and community based-trainings.  

I have extensive experience working with trauma, crisis, depression, anxiety, and grief counseling.   My experiences working various different settings have given me a wide array of exposure to assisting individuals with various needs.  

 

About My Practice

Therapy Clients

I primarily work with adults, ranging from ages 18 to the elderly.  I have experience working with diverse populations suffering from a wide range of issues. 


Session Length

 Therapy sessions are 45-50 minutes long. 


Insurance

I am not currently accepting insurance. If you are interested in using your insurance there are things to keep in mind;  Your insurance can limit the amount of sessions, you might have a high-deductible to pay, it may dictate the services therapist provide, and they require a diagnosis that will be part of your permanent medical record.

How To Get Started

Before scheduling a therapy session I would like to talk briefly over the phone.  This free phone consultation will give you the chance to ask questions and get more information about me and my practice.  During this conversation we will be able to schedule your first therapy session.
