TeleHealth / virtual therapy

Do you prefer to talk with me from the comfort and safety of your own home? Given the current conditions in the world, tele therapy is here to stay! Meet with me anywhere using a confidential platform for video / phone counseling sessions!  Once you schedule a telehealth appointment, a link will be sent to you by text or email, and at the time of the appointment, you just click on the link. You can save the appointments right to your calendar and sign up for automatic reminders. It’s super easy and very user friendly!

traditional counseling

Interested in traditional counseling to work through your anxiety, depression or relationship issues? Meet with me in my private downtown Farmington office for sessions which are reimbursable by insurance. I am in-network for Blue Cross Blue Shield and Blue Care Network and can bill as an out of network provider for many other insurance plans. I also have a special cash rate and can work out a sliding scale rate for individuals with severe financial difficulties.

Based on current COVID-19 guidelines, all clients will be screened prior to coming into the office through the Clear-to-Go app and again at the time of the appointment. If you have been exposed to anyone with COVID or are not feeling well, we can always switch your appointment to telehealth!

My Therapy Style Is individualized

Over the years I’ve been trained, and have used, a variety of therapeutic and counseling styles and approaches. The approaches that I’ve found most useful are a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MCBT).  I believe in active learning with worksheets and homework assignments.
