Questions about therapy?
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist working with individuals, couples and groups. My therapeutic orientation is a problem focused cognitive model which is informed by early experiences.
Therapy is most effective when done with regularity and scheduled at the same time on a weekly basis. Length of treatment varies depending on your problems and your goals. It is not unusual for individuals to achieve their initial goals and want to proceed further. That is something we would discuss together to determine what is best for you.
Anxiety and depression often pose problems in and of themselves. In those occasional instances where medications are indicated, I work collaboratively with prescribing physicians.
What we talk about is confidential with some rare exceptions. My purpose is to create an atmosphere of safety different from other relationships in your life.
I accept insurance and provide a statement if needed. My fees are in accord with what is customary and when financial hardship is an issue I work to reach some accommodation which is mutually agreeable. I hope you will call if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
