In individual therapy I integrate a person-centered approach with a somatic (body-based) approach to help you understand and process what you are currently experiencing. In individual therapy, we will work to reach your personal goals by understanding your triggers, stressors, thoughts, feelings and emotions along with your physical reactions such as stomach aches or tension held in the body.
Couples are complex and each relationship comes with a history and story. Therefore, in couples therapy, I tailor my approach to you and your partner to reach your goals as a couple. Couples therapy can be used to work through a variety of problems couples face including working through and processing conflict, improving communication, and improving intimacy and connection.

How much cost per session is covered?
Do I need approval or a prescription from my doctor?
