    My Approach to Helping

    I love this work. Private practice psychotherapy has been my vocation for 24 years. It’s an honor & a privilege to hold a safe, confidential space where clients find their way through life’s challenges, heal from hurt or trauma, understand themselves better, deepen their spiritual journey, andor move forward in their emotional and psychological development.

    How many of us wake up each morning with a calm center, a sense of purpose, zest for life, satisfaction with ourselves and our relationships, and the clear sense that we’re contributing to life in meaningful ways? Such a life can seem like wishful thinking, or an impossible dream. But some folks come to recognize it as possible, and even come to recognize it as their birthright. And some choose to use good therapy to aid them in making that vision a reality for themselves.

    I regard my clients as people of great courage. I wish you light for your journey. You may decide to use therapy to aid you on your journey. If so, may you find a therapist who is consistently kind. A therapist who is patient & calm. A therapist who acknowledges you as the only expert on your own life. A therapist who can bear witness to all that you fear or dislike in yourself & still extend you full affirmation & unconditional positive regard. A therapist who is a veteran explorer of their own psyche & soul, so there’s nowhere they are afraid to accompany you as you explore your own self.

    You deserve a safe, confidential place to openly speak the truth of your self and life at your own pace. If you feel I might be of help in that regard, call 919-401-6111 or email. I’d be happy to hear from you.

    More Info About My Practice

    My fee is $125 per 55 minute session, and $65 per 25 minute session. I offer a limited number of sliding scale spots for clients who are uninsured or under-insured, and you are free to inquire about these if needed. I am happy to file your insurance for you. I am not “in network” on any insurance or HMO panels, but I do file and receive reimbursement from insurance plans that have “out of network” benefits. My experience is that being an “out of network” provider allows my clients more privacy, confidentiality, freedom and control vis a vis the course of their therapy.

    How Psychotherapy Can Help

    As a basic human right we educate our children in math, science, reading and writing . . . But where is the curriculum for life? For the growth and maintenance of self esteem ? . . . The ability to feel, understand, and express our emotions? . . . Success strategies for achieving life goals? . . . Courage to speak our mind, and be ourselves without fear? . . . Communication tools that take relationships and group interactions to whole new levels? . . . Habits of mindfulness that enable enjoyment of the present moment, and open a gateway to our spiritual selves? . . Survival tools for stressful times? . . . Ways to keep the flame of hope alive in the face of adversity and discouragement? . . . People deserve for these learnings to be as commonplace and available as the ABC’s. Good therapy is one place where these learnings can be gained.
