Why Therapy?

In today’s fast paced world, we no longer have the community connection we once had to provide us with the emotional support we need to deal with life’s challenges.  Therapy provides that safe environment where you can objectively deal with your most challenging issues without feeling judged.

In my practice, I work collaboratively with my clients to clearly identify problems and  work towards achievable goals.

I  specialize in working with families, couples and individuals from diverse ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds.  I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents dealing with a wide range of difficulties such as learning difficulties, social skills deficits, divorce, grief, and trauma.  Additionally I’ve worked extensively with parents on issues related to parenting, familial distress, and divorce.

But I have friends and family I can talk to.  Why would I need a therapist?

Supportive friends and family members are great at helping you get through emotional times but due to their deep emotional connection in your life, it’s difficult for them to be objective.  The advice they give you may not be for your best interest.  In conversation with friends, we tend to be very aware of their time and their feelings, therefore not feel fully free to express our own thoughts and feelings.  As a therapist, I provide you with an entire session dedicated to addressing your concerns while at the same time providing you with objective feedback in a nurturing and non-judgmental environment.

Can I Use Insurance?

I am a network provider for some insurance plans. I am a provider for the following insurance companies:

Blue Cross Blue Shield


If you do not see your insurance company in this list, you may ask them if they will accept out-of-network providers for PPO plans.

Before your first appointment, please call your insurance company and find out the following information:

Do I have mental health benefits? Is it through Blue Cross Blue Shield or Medicare?         Do I have Medicare supplemental Part B coverage?
How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover?
Do I need an authorization number?
What is my deductible and has it been met?
Do I have a copay? How much?
How much do I pay for out-of-network provider?
