My Services

LICSW

Finding the right therapist can be stressful.  To reduce the stress, I am available by phone or email for a free consultation, during which you can ask me questions to determine if I would be a good fit.  I offer individual therapy, as well as evaluations required by the courts.  I am also able to provide a LICSW signature on guardianship paperwork.


I specialize in individual therapy with adolescents and adults, but I believe that people are more likely to get better if they have as much support as possible.  This means that with permission, I will consult with family members and other providers, such as doctors, case managers, school personnel, Dept. of Children and Families personnel, and probation officers.


My areas of specialty include:
Depression
Anxiety/Panic Attacks

Bipolar Disorder
Trauma/PTSD
Self-Harm and Suicidal Ideation

Substance Abuse/Dependence
Codependence
Eating Disorders
Anger Management
Relationship Issues
Grief and Loss

Stage-of-Life Changes


Fees:
Initial evaluation/assessment (45 minutes)    $95
Individual session (45 minutes):    $80
Individual session (60 minutes, not covered by many insurances): $90

Couple/Family session: $100
Written report (not covered by insurance):    $25
Phone calls over 15 minutes (not covered by insurance): $30

Cancellations:
Commitment to therapy is important, but unforeseen circumstances are a part of life.  I ask that cancellations be made at least 24 hours in advance, by email or phone.  No-shows and cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance will result in a $50 charge, which will be due at the time of your next appointment.
