About this pro
A lot of my clients compliment me on not being overly formal/stuffy. They feel comfortable sharing the intimate details of their lives with me and feel that they get some productive and useful feedback and insight from me. I enjoy that every client presents a new clinical picture and challenge. It is easy to stay engaged in such dynamic work. I am not the type of therapist to quickly reach a judgment call involving typecasting and assumptions. I like to respect my clients through seeing each of them through an individual lens and taking into account where they are developmentally along several spheres of emotional development.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I offer private pay sessions for $80.00 without the involvement of insurance. I accept most insurances, except for Select Health/Select Med (which I don't believe covers couples counseling) or Humana.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I decided to get into my line of work because I have always been interested in the human condition. I started by learning what I could from watching Woody Allen movies in my early years and then I moved onto classic literature, which offers tremendous psychological insights (Middlemarch by George Elliot and The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera for example) before launching into an undergrad major in Psychology and onto my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy. I think the work of a therapist is intellectually rigorous, but also very creative and dynamic, which suits my style.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I see a fairly broad spectrum of clients. Many are individuals who have work and life stress (relationships, kids, illness, time management, depression, anxiety, etc.) and many are couples who come together or as individuals, seeking help for their relationships.
