Insurance Acceptance

Yes! Currently, I accept Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, UMR, and most Blue Cross Blue Shield plans. Every insurance plan is different. When you fill out your initial paperwork, you will submit a copy of your insurance card so I can contact your insurance company and verify eligibility of benefits.

My Practices

While working together, you can expect us to create a treatment plan that meets your specific needs. I will help your identify strengths and weaknesses when addressing the best way to work together. I strongly believe in the evidence-based benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, the Gottman Method and Family Systems.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT was developed by Marsha Linehan from the University of Washington. This approach is frequently used to help teens address emotional regulation, distress tolerance, interpersonal skills, and mindfulness. This approach can be used in individual therapy as well as in a group setting. DBT is useful in addressing crisis, anxiety, social struggles, and poor interpersonal skills.

Gottman Method

Gottman Method

The Gottman Method is an approach to couples therapy that includes a thorough assessment of the couple relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory. John and Julie Gottman have spent over 30 years studying couples both in their laboratory and during thousands of sessions with struggling couples. The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT):

CBT is based on the idea that our thoughts determine our feelings, which in turn result into actions. We will examine, challenge, and adjust your thoughts to facilitate cognitive change. CBT is especially helpful in treating depression, anxiety, and negative self-esteem.

Family Skills Therapy

More >>

Family Skills Therapy

There is no traditional identified patient; the focus is on relationship patterns and communication among family members. For example, when a child has a behavior problem a family therapist is likely to perceive the child’s difficulties within the larger context of the family system, rather than his/her individual deficits. During family therapy, therapists avoid blaming any individual family member for the problem, and instead help the family interact in new, different ways that may improve functioning.
