I see adults 19 and older. I work with mild to severe problems. Working with clients who are diagnosed with acute psychiatric disorders (Major Depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, etc.) is very rewarding for me. I feel that educating a client about their illness and how to recognize triggers and manage symptoms, empowers someone who feels victimized by their brain chemistry to not feel so overwhelmed and helpless. My nursing background has helped me to better understand chronic and acute medical disorders.
I have experience working with a wide variety of mental health issues, ranging from coping skills to bipolar disorder. My schedule often allows me to see clients as frequently as needed – based on their need. I have maintained relationships with many psychiatrists around town and am able to refer to them if necessary.
I am EMDR level II prepared and intensively trained in DBT (through Behavioral Tech). These tools of therapy enable me to help with resolving old hurts and traumas – and to assist you with managing powerful emotions that might otherwise disrupt everyday life.
Psychotherapy: First session/assessment: $180; all subsequent standard-length sessions: $140 [standard sessions are between 38 and 52 minutes]; extended sessions [53 to 60 minutes] $175.
