My goal as a therapist is to help people be the best versions of themselves, feeling fulfilled in their jobs, relationships, and personal life. I want to provide you with the best therapy possible to relieve symptoms and assist you in achieving the goals that you set for yourself. Change ultimately happens outside of the office. Utilizing the tools, techniques, and resources gained in therapy consistently outside of the office will ensure that you get the most out of your therapy sessions.

Typical sessions last between 20-60 minutes. Frequency of sessions depends on your needs and severity of symptoms. You may invite others into session with you, such as support persons, teachers, partners, friends, and family.
Sessions are by appointment only. Keep in mind that after school appointments between 3PM-5 PM are the most requested times. If you need to cancel your session, please do so within 24 hours of your scheduled time. Not doing so may result in a late cancellation or no-show fee.
If you will be late to your session, please call and inform your therapist. Sessions begun late will still need to end at the appointed time. If your therapist does not receive a call by 7 minutes after your appointment begin time, they will consider you a no-show and the session will need to be rescheduled.
