The Gift of Therapy

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”
― David Richo


Therapy is not easily summarized or generalized, as each person's experience will be unique, individualized, and established to meet the client's needs. Through authentic therapeutic connection, it is my hope that individuals and families can find growth, understanding, and lasting change. 

While the most important element of therapy is the therapeutic relationship with the therapist, I tailor interventions based on my education and ongoing training. Some of my training includes: 

  • Certified EMDR Practitioner

  • Trauma Informed Stabilization Therapy (TIST)

  • Registered Play Therapist 

  • Sand Tray specialist 

  • Expressive Arts

  • Trauma-sensitive Yoga

  • Trauma-Focused CBT

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Mindfulness & Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)

  • Theraplay (Level 1 & Marshak Interaction Method) Attachment-focused Therapy

  • The Inside of Autism

  • Currently enrolled in The International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation's Professional Training & Certification Program (3 year course of study)

  • Regular/Ongoing EMDR, Play Therapy, and Trauma/Dissociation consultation

Animal-assisted Therapy
Introducing Fluffy & Teddy

Attachment Theory and neuroscience provide substantial evidence in support of animal-assisted therapeutic interventions.  (Fine, 2015).

Fluffy & Teddy often come to the office with me to provide animal-assisted therapy. 

Fluffy and Teddy are miniature poodles/bichons, and therefore hypo-allergenic. They've been trained and work for a wonderful organization, People Animals Love. They're excited to take their work to a new level as they will frequently join me in the new office. If you have any hesitation, please let me know. Fluffy and Teddy are also experts at just chilling out in their dog bed, if that's what's needed. 

The bottom line? Good for us, decreases stress & cortisol levels!

Estimated Costs of Services

I am currently an out of network provider. It is my practice to  provide an invoice for all sessions for you to submit for reimbursement on your own, based on your insurance plan. I recommend contacting your insurance directly to ask about your rate of reimbursement for an out of network/non-network provider. Many clients are able to receive reimbursement for a percentage of the cost of services.

Please note: If you have TRICARE, you cannot file for reimbursement for services. Please let us know if you are a TRICARE subscriber and we can provide more, specific information.

Please read regarding Good Faith Estimate Information:

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit
