Treatment Approach and Services

 

I believe that we all have the potential to lead fulfilled and happy lives. Sometimes traumatic events can cause us to lose our sense of well-being and our center and we need help regaining them. I see my role as guide and support in your path towards well being and of uncovering your full potential.

My approach to therapy is mainly influenced by my study of holistic psychology (looking at the whole being), Internal Family Systems, Somatic Therapy (integrating the body), Family Systems, and Yoga Therapy.

I am trained in  EMDR, IFS, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.

IFS or Internal Family Systems was developed by Richard Schwartz, PhD, a family therapist, and is a mindfulness-based approach which uses a collaborative partnership to facilitate healing and self-growth to look at and get to know the different parts that sometimes lead our lives. By getting to know these parts we can gain more compassion with ourselves and can lead a life from Self, which is our Essence or True Self. 

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, as developed by Pat Ogden, PhD, combines somatic therapies, attachment theory, cognitive applications, neuroscience, and techniques from the Hakomi method and is especially helpful in working with trauma and developmental injuries. 

 

I provide services for:

Therapy Sessions  

Sesssions are generally held weekly for 55 minutes  to use our time together most efficiently,  I reserve a specific time for you and honor your time and commitment and thrive to make our time together as efficient as possible.

Fee

My fee  is $140 for a 55 minute session and $190 for a 90 minute session ( couples or family sessions at times might require 90 minutes). Should we at any time agree to go to every-other-week schedules as you transition out of our work together, my fee will increase to $180 for a 55 minute session and to $ 240 for a 90 minute session.

I accept cash, check or credit card at the beginning of each session.

If you would like to use your health insurance, I am happy to provide you with a monthly super bill so you can get reimbursed. Please check with your provider how much they will reimburse for psychotherapy with Out-of-Network providers and if you have a deductible and co-pay.
