Clinical Psychologist

Consultation Process

I believe in the fit between therapist and client. It often takes time to determine whether two people are a good match. Therefore, my consultation process consists of 3 sessions during which we will collaboratively determine whether and how to continue. Consultations can be completed via telephone, video, or in-person.

Options for Psychotherapy Sessions:

HIPAA compliant video platform

**At this time I can only see individuals via video when they are in New York State or Colorado**

Treatments offered:

I am primarily an individual therapist. When it is appropriate I may invite a significant other or family member for a session or two.

As mentioned on the About Me page, I offer a wide variety of treatments, both short and long-term. Below are the treatment modalities I am trained in utilizing and the conditions they are commonly used to treat:

  • AEDP - a healing-oriented psychotherapy aimed at treating psychological distress by focusing on healing affect and the relationship between the therapist and client. I completed my certification as a therapist in February 2020. 
  • CBT-I - a non-pharmacological treatment for primary insomnia. The American Medical Association (AMA) believes that CBT-I should be the first-line treatment for insomnia.
  • Motivational Interviewing​ - originally developed to treat substance use, this treatment has been successful in assisting with smoking cessation and weight loss, as well as issues related to medical compliance/adherence
  • Psychodynamic Therapy - often called insight-oriented therapy; the focus is often on the relationship between the past and present, utilizing the therapy relationship as the channel through which change occurs. Traditionally considered a long-term treatment, I am trained in two time-limited models of psychodynamic psychotherapy: Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) and Trauma Focused Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (TFPP).
  • CBT - problem-focused therapy that utilizes homework assignments emphasizing changing thought and behavior patterns
  • ACT - therapy that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies to increase psychological flexibility.

Clinical Supervision:

            Clinical supervision is critical to the continued growth and development of all therapists. I am currently offering AEDP and psychodynamic                clinical supervision in both individual and small group formats.

Payments Accepted:

At this time I do not accept insurance. I am happy to assist in completion of out-of-network paperwork required for receiving reimbursement for services from other insurance companies. I accept payment in cash, check, or HIPAA compliant forms of online payment.
