A: Simply. It is a process in which you work with a trained professional to bring about positive change by alleviating negative symptoms, including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, sexual problems, anger, substance abuse, and dissatisfaction with life or relationships. Based on who you are and what will work best in your case, the therapist will customize a plan that will help you reach your goals. Read More.
A: In group therapy, you learn that you are not alone in experiencing problems with life. You can experiment relating to people differently in a controlled environment. A group leader guides and protects the group. Group therapy also allows you to learn from the experiences of others with similar issues. This allows you to understand more deeply how other people view and interact with the world.
A: Children communicate their thoughts and feelings through play. A trained therapist is able to understand a child’s inner world, feelings, and frustrations by observing and participating in the child’s play. Much of the work of therapy occurs through fantasy play, however, the results are very real and transfer directly to the child’s life. Read More.

A: I do not take insurance, but will provide you with receipts that you can submit for reimbursement. Each insurance company and plan is different, so check with your provider to determine if and to what extent “out of plan providers” are covered by your insurer.
