During our first phone call or meeting we will discuss which of my services best fit your needs and goals. If we decide that you need services outside the scope of what I can provide, I will assist you in finding additional or alternative resources.Individual Counseling and Therapy

Individual Counseling and Therapy
Individual counseling and therapy can be helpful for a variety of difficulties, as well as for facilitating personal growth. Some people come because they feel depressed, anxious, or angry, and they want to understand their emotions better or find more effective ways to cope. Others come because they wish to gain confidence, increase self-acceptance, or find a sense of direction in life. Still others come because they want to cultivate more satisfying relationships with others. When we first meet, I will invite you to share your concerns and we will discuss how therapy can be helpful. Over time, we will collaborate to gain a clearer understanding of your struggles and to create a path toward greater life satisfaction. I believe you will find me to be a supportive and encouraging ally on this journey, who can help you rediscover your strengths and challenge you to consider things from a new perspective. Your feedback about the therapy experience will always be welcome, as we collaborate in our work together.
For men and women who experience fertility difficulties, the journey of trying to conceive can be quite challenging and stressful. Painful feelings may arise, such as disappointment, frustration, anger, and grief. Relationships with partners, friends, and family may become strained or distant. For clients facing these issues, I offer individual and couples counseling. My goal in providing these services is to help you reduce isolation, increase self esteem, expand coping strategies, explore treatment decisions, and increase intimacy and understanding within your relationship. For people planning to use donor eggs or sperm in their fertility treatment, I offer counseling for the recipient couple, as well as egg donor consultations/evaluations; please call to inquire about fees for these specialty services.
Fees and Payment
My fee for a 55 minute session is $140. I am an in-network provider with Blue Cross Blue Shield, but if you wish to use a different insurance to pay for your sessions, you may be able to obtain reimbursement for a percentage of my fees through out-of-network benefits. I also offer a limited number of slots for clients who are uninsured and/or very low income. We will discuss your fee and payment options during our first phone contact, before scheduling your first session. All fees may be paid by cash, check, or credit card.
