    My Approach to Helping

    I offer short and long term psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and maritalcouple counseling using a great deal of humor and compassion. Patients can derive benefits from one or two sessions, or they can come for a longer period. Sessions are 45 minutes for individuals, and 60-90 minutes for couples. I am not strictly bound by any particular psychotherapeutic approach, but rather I tailor sessions to the specific needs and abilities of my patients. Therefore, no two patients ever receive exactly the same therapy.

    More Info About My Practice

    I don’t take most insurance, though I am happy to provide patients with an invoice they can use to submit for reimbursement to their own insurance. I believe that psychotherapy is not luxury, but a necessity and a right. Therefore, if insurance does not cover and my full fee is a problem, I am happy to use a sliding scale fee for those who require it.

    My Role as a Therapist

    This is an extremely difficult question. The role of the therapist varies hugely from patient to patient depending upon the patient’s specific needs. Sometimes the therapist enables a patient to see (and therefore deal with) what had previously been unconscious. Sometimes a therapist helps the patient to integrate past events or childhood in general with their present. What is more generally applicable is that the therapist always provides a safe and gentle environment where any issue at all can be explored, understood, and dealt with. The approach may vary, but the destination is always greater self-knowledge and understanding, and more effectiveness in dealing with life’s challenges.

    Billing and Insurance:

    to ask this therapist for billing and insurance information.

    Fees: Fee range is $150 to $300 (depending on several factors and insurance coverage). I am happy to negotiate the fee you can afford as I don’t believe psychotherapy is a luxury.

    Sliding Scale Available  InfoClinicians who offer sliding scale payment structures may offer lower or reduced fees based on an individual’s ability to pay. Please contact this clinician for more details regarding their fees or sliding scale policy.
