Therapy isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Just as we all resonate with certain people and not others, so too will we find that some forms of therapy are a better fit for us than others. At the same time, I truly believe that ultimately the methods used are not as important as the relationship that develops between a client and their counselor.

I believe that therapy gives us a wonderful opportunity to discover and navigate the causes and conditions of negative or challenging thought and emotional patterns while remaining firmly rooted in the present moment. I do this in a way that is non-intrusive, non-violent, and compassionately supportive to one’s personal growth and embodiment. Through assisted mindful states, we can really become aware of deeper feelings, emotions, and beliefs with clarity we are often too busy to notice. It is from this place that we discover so much about ourselves, and it is from this place that we are able to re-witness our strength and resilience, and then utilize these to construct new ways of being in and with the world.

The focus during my Masters Degree studies in Clinical Mental Health Counseling was on somatic and mind/body therapies, as well as the intersection of these therapies with neuroscience and interpersonal neurobiology. I have completed a two-year comprehensive training program with Mindful Experiential Therapy Approaches (M.E.T.A), where I immersed into learning the Hakomi Method and Jon Eisman’s Re-Creation of the Self Model of Human Systems (R-CS).

Prior to pursuing my degree in counseling, I studied Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and meditation for three years at a retreat center in upstate New York. My time there gave me a profound curiosity in the power of the mind and a set of tools to transform how one relates to this human experience.

My fees are $110 per 50-minute session, or $160 per 75-minute session. I offer a limited number of sliding scale options for clients who are experiencing financial hardship. I accept payment in the form of cash, check, or Venmo, as well as the following cryptocurrencies: BTC, BCH, ETH, and LTC. I am not currently in-network with any insurance providers but your insurance plan may reimburse you for my services. I am glad to provide the necessary documentation for you to seek reimbursement if it is available to you.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please call with any questions or to set an initial appointment.
