My ambition to become a psychologist traces back to my first experience in psychotherapy as an adolescent. The psychologist I saw then not only helped me during a turbulent time in my life, but her example allowed me to imagine that I could develop the capacity to work in the kinds of ways she did, helping me to make connections among my experiences while offering guidance in an empathetic, caring manner.

I run my practice in as independent and private a manner as possible by choosing not to be contracted with insurance companies that are likely to impose excessive bureaucratic requirements. Even on an out-of-network basis, some insurance companies may request additional information about your treatment in the form of utilization reviews or requests for additional information about you. My default response is to refuse such requests for the dual purpose of protecting your privacy and maintaining the autonomy of my practice.
