We have all overcome significant obstacles in our lives. So, what got you here today? What have you already done to get you through? You may have battle scars, but here you are.

When I work with individuals, I understand that each person's story is different, and I take the time to get to know you as an individual. I take a client-centered approach when determining how long you may need counseling to help heal. Some people only need a few sessions to get some skills to make different life choices. Others need longer-term counseling to process very difficult emotions. You and I work together to identify what goals you want to accomplish in your counseling. Some examples are to overcome panic attacks, or reduce depressive thoughts or to process grief.


When working with families, it's with an understanding that everyday patterns are getting you stuck. It may seem like every argument is the same and nothing is resolved. A family member may have a mental health issue and the family needs to work to understand how to support each other. Or, your family has suffered trauma or grief.

I believe that every family has strengths, and sometimes when stressors happen, it can feel hard to see those strengths.

I provide short-term, solution-focused services with families. Evidence has shown that using this type of treatment, by being proactive and targeting what is getting you stuck, increases family satisfaction and growth.


I do accept some insurance plans. You can contact your insurance company to find out if I am in network, or you can contact me. My fees are $135 for individual counseling and $165 for family counseling, for each 50-minute session. I accept cash, check, HSA or credit/debit card payments.

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will 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 bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or 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 picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
    For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 1-800-368-1019.
