I am a Preferred Provider on two panels: Aetna and Anthem and soon, Blue Shield. My decision to join these panels is to help clients get the services they wish and need. My commitment remains to be part of an ethical and successful dialogue between clients and myself. My philosophy of psychotherapy is that it is a collaborative commitment to improve life and functioning.
I am eclectic in my approach and believe in working in the modality which promotes healing and improvement. I am happy to work with other professionals in the community to create an active team dedicated to the wellbeing of each person or people in therapy.
