Issues: Whatever keeps you from the life you want, our work is tailored to your goals. In a calm environment, you can explore whatever challenges you.
My therapeutic specialty is resolving trauma, most specifically treated with EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). I have over 20 years experience with advanced training. Most of my therapeutic work is with EMDR because it is effective, heavily research-based, and generally can be quicker than talk therapy alone. Clients report feeling better able to respond appropriately to the every-day stressors of life, without either over-reacting or under-reacting. EMDR gets to the root of many challenges such as anxiety, PTSD, depression, and many more, resolving them so new, effective patterns of behavior are more easily mastered.
I also work with anxiety and depression, grief and loss, aging, self esteem, health concerns, LGBTQ+ challenges, understanding relationship dynamics, emotional dysregulation, general stress and worry, and existential concerns.
Approaches: My area of particular expertise is EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). In addition, I often draw on mindfulness based cognitive therapy, brief solution-focused therapy, as well as supportive tools like relaxation, meditation, HAES informed strategies, movement, etc.
Fees: Cost is $120 per 50 minute session or $240 per 100 minute session. I have a small practice, so I am unable to bill insurance. If your insurance carrier will cover out-of-network services, please ask for a Superbill that you can submit for reimbursement. I make every effort to provide current information. Fees can change with little warning.
Good Faith Estimate: Under the No Surprises Act effective January 2022, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care might cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychotherapy services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychotherapy services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you agree to a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or photo of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate under The No Surprises Act, visit: www.cms.gov/nosurprises
An example of an estimate would be $120 per 50 minute session, times 1 session per week, times 50 weeks per year, equaling $6,000 annual charges. All appointments are scheduled with your approval and can be cancelled at any time, if you change your mind about receiving billable services. All services outside regularly scheduled appointments are billed at a pro-rated fee as detailed in the intake forms that are completed prior to the first session.
