Parents~Is your child hurting emotionally and behaving in ways that disrupt your family and/or school?
Of course, you have tried everything you know, but you do not know what else to do.

I have helped lots of children SMILE and LAUGH again, feel STRONG and SAFE again, and learn how to COPE with life's challenges.

If you worry that your child is suffering from depression or anxiety, struggling with a life stressor such as parents' divorce, or unable to find the keys to success in school, contact me for a FREE 30-minute consultation by phone or in person.


How do we get started?  In the first session, you will receive a thorough 45-50 minute diagnostic assessment, and together we will decide on goals.  Therapy sessions lasting 45 minutes are often weekly in the beginning to quickly build rapport and continuity, but older children may be successful with sessions every other week.  Goals are often achieved in 6-8 sessions, gradually increasing the time between sessions to make sure you and your child are comfortable before we take a break from therapy.  Because many issues are affected by development, we take a "break" to make sure that neither you nor your child sees any need to return in the future as a failure, but rather as a "booster" session (yes, like the shot, though hopefully much less painful!).   And if therapy is not working?  I am more than happy to refer you to someone else to make sure you and your child get the help you need and deserve.

Do you take insurance?
 I value confidentiality, but insurance companies often want more confidential information than most people would like to have shared.  For that reason, you may prefer not to use insurance.  I am paneled with a limited number of insurance companies.  For those companies with which I am not paneled, you may simply submit claim forms to get reimbursed under your out-of-network benefits.  You can also use flexible spending and health savings accounts, and I can accept HSA credit cards for payment.  To help defray the cost when I am not paneled with your insurance company, mention "Website Discount" for $60 off the intake session or $25 off one follow-up session.  Still concerned about money?  Consider this: Psychotherapy can boost happiness more than money!
Women~Unstable mood?  Anxiety feel out of control?  Hormonal issues?  

These are not unrelated issues, especially if you are pregnant or recently had a child. Psychotherapy is recommended before antidepressant medications by the American Psychiatric Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
for pregnant women suffering from depression. Women are so often the members of their families doing the least for themselves and blaming themselves for not being happier.  However, lack of treatment can be deadly, as women who do not get depression treated are at increased risk for heart disease.

You deserve time and attention for you, and  I have worked with many women who learn not only what self-care is, but also how to apply it to themselves for the first time ever!  If you're not sure, contact me for a FREE 30-minute consultation by phone or in person.
