I come to my position as a therapist from a medical background. I hold clinical mental health experience in rural county mental health and in eating disorder centers, treating folks therapeutically from all backgrounds, and with a wide variety of diagnoses and struggles.
My work now in private practice focuses on working with individuals and couples who want to build stronger relationships with themselves and those most important to them. I continue training in Psychodynamic theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and behavioral therapies like ACT and CBT to support this work.
As a therapist I am highly relational; I don't just listen, I also engage with you and your ideas throughout each session. I welcome all to my practice. I am a HAES (Health At Every Size) and body positive practitioner.
During your time working with me you should expect to feel kind, engaging, genuine support, reflection, and challenge, as well as collaborative, explorative guidance and planning.
Attachment theory, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Theories, Person Centered (Rogerian) Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) therapies.
Foundational beliefs about life and obstacle from these theories are:
$150 per 50 minute therapy session for adult individuals and couples
*Couples sessions will be out-of-pocket payment only
Insurances I work with:
*I will not be able to respond to inquiries specifying an insurance not listed below
*I do not work with insurance for couples session
I am able to accept HSA cards for payment for therapy sessions
Sometimes insurance plans offer you "Out-Of-Network" coverage reimbursement. I am happy to provide a detailed receipt for your services referred to as a "Superbill" for you to submit to your insurance, if that is a benefit that your insurance provides to you. I encourage you to connect with your insurance provider to confirm if you're eligible for these benefits
