I recommend that clients begin with an initial 50 minute consultation. This visit will give you a chance to meet me and to determine if I am the right therapist for your needs and goals.
If you would like to continue meeting, I will then recommend a session frequency based on your needs and availability. I typically recommend 1 weekly 45-50 min session. In some cases, I may recommend that we meet twice per week. I will base this recommendation on the nature of your concerns. In the end, the decision will be up to you.
I have extensive experience working with adolescents and young adults from ages 14-25 to address emotional difficulties surfacing in school, family life, college, and transitions to career. These difficulties might emerge in the form of difficulty concentrating, a depressed or anxious mood, an aversion towards school, and sometimes in the form of maladaptive, unproductive, and risky behavior.
I specialize in treatments for the following:
- Depression and Anxiety
- Life Transitions (school, college, career, children )
- Identity (LGBTQ)
- Substance Use, Abuse, and Dependence
- Weight-loss and Wellness
- Stress Management
- Grief and Loss
- Medical and Health Concerns
- School Issues (motivation, success, behavior, refusal)
- Internet Abuse and Addiction
- Parenting and Family Issues
Please note that College and Career Counseling are not covered by insurance and rates are based on your specific needs.
