Over the years I have continued to deepen my skills and stay current with contemporary approaches to wellness and healing that reflect an integrated approach to therapy and healing trauma. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and groups from many racial and ethnic backgrounds, all genders, spiritual and religious traditions. Over the years I have worked with people of all genders, as well as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and heterosexual clients.
My practice is focused on the intersection of physical, emotional and spiritual health, with a specialty in perinatal health, menopause, pregnancy loss, and infertility.
I support people who are dealing with a variety of life challenges, such as:
- Pregnancy, Infertility, Miscarriage & Pregnancy Loss
- Grief and Loss
- Healing Trauma
- Relationships, Sexuality and Intimacy
Each one of us needs and deserves to have people with whom we can be all of who we are — places where our stories can be heard with compassion. Every time someone allows me to see more of the fullness of who they are, it is an invitation for me to bravely meet them there.
I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a mindfulness-based, somatic approach to healing trauma. I work collaboratively with health care providers and other practitioners to create a multidisciplinary care plan when appropriate.
Privacy in the Digital Age
Privacy and confidentiality are cornerstones of the therapeutic relationship, and as such it is important to understand the risks of using electronic communication for communicating protected health information. While it is not possible to completely guarantee the security and confidentiality of electronic communication, it is critical to be informed and mindful about these issues.
In order to best protect client confidentiality and to ensure the ethical boundaries and safety of the therapeutic relationship, I do not engage with clients in any way on social media sites. This means I do not accept requests for contacts, friends or fans (on sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, etc..) from current or former clients.
Good Faith Estimate
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical and mental health care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the expected charges for medical services, including psychiatric services. You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency healthcare services, including psychiatric services. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service. If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.
