Psychotherapy is based on a positive relationship between client and clinician. Trust is at the center of this professional relationship. As a clinician, creating a comfortable space where we can have the difficult conversations to work on, and resolve, the issues that are bringing you in for therapy is my main goal. I am active in the therapeutic process and ask thought provoking questions that will help you to consider the issues on a deeper level, eventually creating space for long-term shifts for healthier ways of living, coping and interacting with others.
I have specialized training in supervision practices from the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and I welcome provisionally licensed therapists working towards full licensure for their supervision requirement. Supervision is an integral piece of professional development for all aspects of becoming consistently ethical and a competent clinician. Supervision sessions will consist of discussing specific cases brought by the supervisee, while processing issues that come up during the course of treatment in the supervisee’s work setting. Special attention will be given to diagnostic concerns, matters related to transference and counter-transference, cultural sensitivities, and treatment modalities. Group and Individual supervision is available. Please contact me for further information. Cost of supervision is $50 per session for individuals, and rates may be negotiable based on group size.
As a professional, if you are contemplating how else you can contribute to the world or are looking to shift your business, consider consultation through the coaching session service. The goal of these sessions is to learn how to lead clients to enrich their quality of life when ready to embrace the idea that their life can consist of greater joy instead of constant struggle. Strengthening boundaries and interpersonal relationship skills to problem solve creates deeper connections with others for optimal personal and/or professional growth. Initial session is $150 and each session thereafter is $120. Coaching sessions are cash only services and are not covered by insurance companies at this time.
Bariatric Surgery Support
If you are seeking weight loss surgery, therapy is a necessary component for optimal long-term success. I had weight loss surgery and worked through my food issues in therapy, both before and after surgery. I have a first-hand sense of the issues, complexities, and emotions that come with deciding and then actually having bariatric surgery. I know how important a support system is in process, and I would be honored to be a part of your journey to a healthy lifestyle with the help of the “tool” of weight loss surgery.
