Individual therapy for adults

Some individuals wish to address newly developed issues.  Others are interested in looking at patterns in their lives and in their relationships that have been there for as long as they can remember.  I work with individuals to find out why they are stuck and how they might move forward with their lives. Issues may include:

  • Worry, fears, anxiety, panic
  • Self-esteem and self-worth
  • Perfectionism, high self-criticism
  • Feeling alone or empty
  • Sadness, depression, hopelessness
  • Personal growth and meaning
  • Relationship issues
  • Coping with life events, expected and unexpected
  • Trauma and life experiences
  • Grief and loss
  • Personality disorders and disorders of self

Couples therapy

I work with couples at differing stages and with differing issues. Some of these include:

  • communication issues
  • relationship issues
  • growing apart
  • infidelity, secrets
  • premarital counseling
  • ending a relationship

The services I provide are confidential and discreet.

I work with individuals and couples on a private pay basis. I am a member of the provider network of the following insurance carriers: Cigna, CompCare, Quantum Managed Care, and Quantum EAP. If you have a different insurance carrier, I can provide statements that may be used for billing your own insurance company.
