I believe everyone deserves and should have access to mental health care, and I do everything I can to make sure that’s true.
I take most insurance plans. If you don’t have insurance, I’m happy to help you get it (if you want it). If you don’t want to use your insurance, you can use sliding scale pricing. Sliding scale is available to everyone. The top of my scale is $180 per session (this is what I charge the insurance companies) and the bottom of my scale is $35 per hour.
There is never money shame in my office. You pay what you can afford. Some folks pay more and some folks pay less. If someone is having financial struggles, we will figure it out. No one gets turned away.
Trauma affects and infects every part of a person’s life. I believe that most diagnoses are because of trauma. Trauma impacts physical health, emotional health, mental health, relationship health. EMDR is an incredible therapy that helps folks process their trauma and put it in the past--where it belongs--once and for all.
I help people understand the therapy, understand their symptoms, and why they are happening, and understand that better happens. I teach skills that work. My people graduate from therapy and move on with their lives.
I focus on queer folks and trauma because I am queer and I had chronic trauma. I believe that the most effective therapists are simply folks who dealt with their own issues and learned how to help others. This is what I did. I dealt with my chronic trauma, and continue to deal with it. And I help other folks do the same.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, which means I see the systems that my people exist within, and how they are expressing the trouble in the system.
