Home: About Me


The decision to see a therapist can be difficult to make.  It can be the first step in saying you want to make a change, desire support, or want to look at things through a new perspective. It takes strength to make this step and the journey is one of gaining self-awareness, personal betterment, and fulfillment. It's my privilege to join you in the journey.

I am an out of network provider and many of my clients are reimbursed by their insurance company.  I can provide a detailed receipt ("superbill") for your submission. 
Questions to ask your insurance provider before scheduling include: 
1) Do you reimburse for an out-of-network psychotherapist/social worker (behavioral health) and if so how much or at what percentage? 2) Do I have a deductible I have to meet first?

I offer a sliding scale when able. 

​Please call or email for more information or to schedule. 


Thanks for submitting!
