My approach is to understand, be objective and ask questions to help you clarify your situation. My thinking about human behavior is guided by Bowen family systems theory, which suggests that individuals cannot be understood in isolation from one another. With improved observation and understanding of family emotional process, it is possible for individuals to find the answers for many of their problem within themselves. I think my ability to be neutral, my acceptance of others, and my experience are an asset in "lending a hand" to those facing difficult situations.

How may I contact you for an appointment?
You may make your first appointment by telephone or email.
What is the cost of each session?
I am a provider for several major insurance companies. If you use your insurance, the fee depends upon your plan. I am also a provider for several "EAP" plans' those sessions are paid for by your employer. If you do not have insurance, you may be eligible for a sliding fee. The full fee is $125.00-$150.00. Please refer to the section in this web site entitled "fees/insurance" for additional information.
