Focus in Counseling

Impact of Challenging/Traumatic Life Events
When something difficult happens we may think that once it’s over, it’s over.  Right?  As the dust settles, we can recognize that the life we were leading does not feel quite the same as it did before.  Close relationships feel distant, familiar places feel foreign, and the happiness we felt before is missing in action.  Rather than trying to fit a square peg into a round hole, we can work to recognize the change that exists and embrace our new reality.
Adjustment and Transition
Getting older, leveling up, starting or ending relationships, navigating work/career identities…the list of possible transitions in life is endless. As we live our lives, changes come rolling in and they can be hard to process.  Rather than allowing those racing thoughts to bounce around your head, let’s unpack feelings of anxiety and stress together. We will find meaning behind your thoughts and introduce clarity by developing coping strategies.
Focus on Me
In childhood, we are encouraged to share but we are told focusing on ourselves is “selfish”.  Some of us are taught to neglect ourselves in order to gain approval, love, or validation. As we become adults we become more aware of our own needs, and we learn it is critical that we have a strong sense of self.  When it comes to our boundaries, decision making, and physical and behavioral health we need to shift our focus towards reclaiming ourselves! If we can recognize the barriers to our wellness, we can address them in a way that is beneficial us.

Specialities

Self-Compassion

When a loved one asks for help do you say things like, “you really messed up this time”, “I can’t believe you did this to yourself”, or “this will never get better.  You’re stuck”?

Then why say that to yourself?

Self compassion is focused on becoming aware of that ineffective script you tell yourself when things aren’t going your way, and replacing it with the kind, supportive script you deserve.  We are capable of  positive and meaningful change.  It helps when we think that way about ourselves.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy

              Thoughts -> Mood -> Behavior

These connections can dictate how we show up in the world.  If we are optimistic, we feel good, and then we shine bright in our lives.  If we think we have no shot at being happy, we feel miserable, and may opt to sit at home rather than go out and try.

We have the ability to change the way we think about our current circumstance, and it can make all the difference in how we make progress towards our goals.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Somethings in our lives really bring out some in intense emotions in us.  This leads to us being more reactive, anxious, or even depressed.

We tend to get into trouble when we are thinking about the past or our potential future, which removes us from the present.

These skills focus on addressing our needs in the here and now, sharing them effectively with others, and approaching our obstacles with mindfulness so we can bring about some relief.

About Me

My philosophy in counseling is for you, the client, to have the ability to direct the course of treatment and make decisions that they feel are most beneficial to them.  While some practitioners believe that counseling and healing must be a lifelong pursuit, many of my clients report finding lasting changes as a result of short term treatment.  I am accepting of what brings you into this moment and how you choose to spend this time.  My hope is to be an ally in this journey and help you make a meaningful change in your life.

As my career has progressed over the last fifteen years working in the helping field, I have recognized the importance of continuing to grow and learn in this field to better serve my clients. I actively pursue additional training, certifications, and continuing education opportunities in my free time. I feel fortunate that I have found a career that I sincerely enjoy and can continue to grow within.  

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my two sons and my dog Emerson. You can find me cooking a new recipe in the kitchen, hiking with my friends and family, bowling, or rewatching The Office or Parks and Recreation.

Therapy FAQ’s

If this is your first time in therapy, congratulations! This is an exciting step in focusing on your wellness and addressing your needs.

Click on the questions on the right to expand the answers.

If you have any more questions, reach out on the form below.
What should I expect?
Our first session will include completing intake paperwork and discussing a treatment plan for what you would like to work on.  Following this session we begin to focus on your treatment plan and the direction you would like to take your therapy in.
When can I expect to feel better and to not need therapy anymore?
This is not a question I can answer, this is a decision that you can make when you are ready.  Some people see therapy as a lifelong tool they use to feel well while others find short term therapy is more of their style.  This is your decision to make and I will fully support your plan.
Do you accept my insurance?

In Virginia, I currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield(BCBS) CareFirst, BCBS Anthem, United Health Care, Oxford, and Oscar Health Insurance plans.

In New York, I currently accept United Health Care, Cigna, Aetna, Oscar Health, and Oxford Insurance plans.

What if you do not accept my insurance?
We can still meet, and I will issue you a form called a “Super Bill” that you can submit to your insurance company for partial or potentially full reimbursement of your payment.

The cost per session is listed above in the Fees section of the website.

What if I want to use my Out of Network (OON) benefits to meet with you?
I would encourage you to reach out to your insurance company to see if you can be either partially or fully reimbursed for the cost of sessions.  


Here are some questions you could ask your insurance company when you speak with them about using our OON benefits:

  • What is my out-of-network deductible? …
  • How much of my out-of-network deductible has already been met? 
  • What is my policy period? …
  • What is my coinsurance? …
  • How do I submit for reimbursement?
  • How long do I have to submit my superbill?

I will gladly go over any of this with you in our initial consultation if needed.
