Before telling you more about the practice, we want to acknowledge that therapy can be an uncomfortable prospect for some people. Often, people are unsure of what a therapist can offer, or what they should expect when they meet with a therapist. People may also hold beliefs about what it means about them or the seriousness of their issues because they have chosen to come to therapy.
Coming to therapy does not make you “crazy” or mean that your problems are necessarily worse than other people’s. It just means that you have taken a step to cope with problems in a healthy way. COVID-19 has also brought additional challenges and stressors into our lives. I look forward to working with you to learn more about your problems and your goals. Together, we can help you make desired changes in your life.
My treatment approach is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Cognitive behavioral therapy explores the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behavior. We all have patterns of thinking and behavior that can negatively impact how we feel. I can help you notice these patterns and develop more adaptive thoughts and behaviors to improve how you feel and how you are coping with stressors.
Here is an example of some things we might work on:
Many clients utilize insurance benefits to pay for therapy. I am “in-network” providers with the following insurance companies:
Aetna / Meritain
Independence Blue Cross
Blue Cross / Blue Shield
If am not “in-network” providers with your insurance company, you may have “out-of-network benefits” connected to your plan that will pay for a percentage of the cost of therapy. We also accept “out-of-pocket” payment. Please contact the office directly for more information about beginning therapy or associated fees.
