Private Pay Cost:

  • $120 for Individual Therapy

Populations: Specializing in Trauma-Related Disorders, Anxiety, Maternal Depression, Major Depression, Life Transitions, and Grief and Loss.

Trauma comes in many forms and can deeply impact how we think, feel, and function as well as  our mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing.  Using a person-centered approach, I hold space for my clients to reflect and process, leveraging their own strengths and insight to heal and grow in the wake of traumatic life experience.  Together we explore a combination of bottom-up and top-down therapies to support processing past experiences for a healthier present and future.  I employ an integrative theoretical orientation with emphasis on humanistic psychology, psychodynamics, systems and neurodevelopmental theories.

Graduating from Case Western Reserve University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work, I earned certifications in trauma-informed practice and the neurosequential model of therapeutics, and I’m EMDR trained.  My past experience includes community mental health and psychotherapy, working with children, adolescents, and adults.  I also engage in research activity with colleagues from CWRU, working on literature related to ASD caregiver burden and restorative justice in cases of intimate partner violence.

Read More About Insurance

We are a private counseling practice, and are working on paneling with insurances at this time. However, we cannot guarantee how long this process will take, or that we will surely be able to panel with your insurance due to the ebb and flow of enrollment. Some of our therapists are currently paneled with  insurances. You can see the updated insurances in each therapist bio, or contact our office for more updated information on where we are in the paneling process. For now, you may be able to utilize your out-of-network benefits for behavioral mental health if you have them. Click for more information and to learn more about this process. You are always welcome to private pay for therapy services. This is beneficial for many reasons, including limiting the amount of disclosure we have to provide to your insurance company about your treatment, and there is no limit to how many sessions you are able to access in a given year.
