Hello, I’m glad you’re here!

Even though I am experienced in a variety of issues, my specialty area in counseling is Anxiety Management. In this world we live in, there are many causes of our anxiety  but no matter what your particular stresses, the process of getting better is the same.

My approach engages mind, body and spirit as tools to reduce anxiety and learn to live a peaceful life. I believe my clients find me to be open, accepting, informative and fun. I love the new emphasis on positive psychology, which not only assesses what is wrong, but also what is right in a person's life. Together, my clients and I identify their strengths and learn to use them towards growth and healing.

My focus areas are happiness coaching, plus professional anxiety and depression counseling.

Coaching vs. Counseling: What's the Difference?

Basically, the difference is one of severity. Coaching is for people who are functioning at an "OK" level, but they want to improve or enhance some area of their life. Examples may include work satisfaction, relationship improvement, defining life/career goals, or finding more happiness in their lives. Coaching issues are not diagnosable mental disorders and coaching services would not be reimbursable by health insurance.

Counseling, or psychotherapy, is usually sought by people who are not functioning at an "OK" level. They are under considerable distress and may be referred by a physician or other healthcare provider. Examples may include clinical depression, panic attacks, extreme anxiety or acute grief. Counseling issues are diagnosable mental disorders and are usually reimbursable by health insurance.

I am a provider for the following insurance panels: Blue Cross Blue Shield and Beacon Health Options. My private pay fee is $125 per 50 minute session. 

But we can only get to know each other so much online. Ready to talk? I'm ready to listen. Give me a call today. There's never a charge to explore if this is the right answer.
