My Approach

Types of Therapy: 

I utilize modalities in my practice with evidence-based research to support treatment. I primarily utilize the following therapies:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

  • Exposure Response Prevention

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Mindfulness and Self-Compassion

  • EMDR for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

About Diagnosis:

Diagnoses provide a helpful framework for understanding our experiences and can guide treatment decisions. However, humans are much more complex and diagnostic criteria rarely reflect the entirety of human difficulty and suffering . Therefore, you may find the diagnostic criteria helpful in understanding your struggles or they may not reflect your experience at all. I strive to use diagnoses as one tool to support treatment but certainly not the only framework. I incorporate a transdiagnostic approach to treatment with the goal of supporting clients in learning skills to navigate and allow difficult emotions rather than avoiding them, and to be able to move towards a life that is meaningful.

 

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

Viktor Frankl

 

Training:

I have completed trainings by the International OCD Foundation, consultation with IOCDF, The Center for Anxiety & Behavior Therapy, the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science, Postpartum Support International, PESI, CBT School, and EMDRIA. I continue to participate in ongoing training and consultation in order to improve my practice and learn emerging research.

Cost of Treatment: 

Some individuals prefer to use insurance while others prefer to pay for therapy out of pocket. Insurance may allow clients to attend therapy more frequently by lowering the cost. However, insurance requires that individuals receive a diagnosis in order to cover services and may request documentation of therapy. For this reason, some clients prefer to not to use insurance. I am in-network with the following insurance plans: 

·  Aetna 

·  United Healthcare

·  Oxford

·  Oscar Health

Out of network costs are: 

·        50 minute individual initial assessment: $150

·        50 minute ongoing individual therapy: $135
