Initial Phone Consultation

When you first call me, I will ask you some questions to determine if I am the right person to help. We will discuss if I can best assist you with your presenting concerns, if you are able to meet during my available office hours, and how we will manage treatment fees. If you feel that I may be a good fit for you as a therapist, we can schedule an intake appointment. If either of us feel that your needs can best be met through other services, I will provide you with referrals. This phone consultation is free and lasts about 15 minutes.

Individual Therapy

Individual therapy is a one-on-one meeting in which we discuss any emotional, behavioral, or psychological issues that are causing you distress. It is a time to help you better understand the nature of your concerns and work collaboratively to develop strategies and build skills to work through your struggles. Therapy can also be a means of enhancing areas of your life that are already going well but that you wish to improve.

Couple's Therapy

Couple's therapy is a meeting where you and your partner attend session together. My role as a couple's therapist is to help you and your partner create a sense of connection where you can both give and receive support and affection. I help couples learn to interact with each other in a way that facilitates connection and effective problem-solving. Once couples come to see their partner as a safe person who can help meet their needs, their ability to work effectively as a team is increased and they are able to address issues that arise in their lives both during and after therapy.

I work with heterosexual and gay/lesbian couples as well as individuals in mixed-orientation relationships. Therapy can be for those wanting to enhance their relationship, for those wanting pre-marital counseling, or for those who are considering separation or divorce. Common couples' issues that bring people to therapy include frequent conflicts, parenting struggles, addictive behavior (e.g., gambling, substance use, compulsive sexual behavior), infidelity, sexual difficulties, and struggles resulting from various life transitions.
