Psychotherapy is for clients who seek treatment for diagnosable mental health conditions. Any combination of the following indicate that psychotherapy is the right service for you: a previous or existing mental health diagnosis, current psychotropic medication, and history of suicidality. Please see section below.
Counseling is a process of healing and change not based on diagnosis. My counseling practice has grown out my experience as a clinical psychotherapist combined with coaching techniques. Because counseling can’t be billed to insurance it is confidential (not subject to insurance company requests for treatment notes).
Individual Psychotherapy Sessions are $120 (50 minutes)

What is my co-payment or co-insurance per therapy session?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
Is a referral required from my primary care physician?
