Sessions Counseling Group

A Marriage and Family Therapy Professional Corporation

My therapeutic approach is based upon the belief that each of us carries within the wisdom and tools to initiate our own healing.  The therapeutic relationship, then becomes a facilitation of a return to Self. A return to our own sense of knowing the purpose for our lives.

Socrates said that the unexamined life is not worth living. I believe that the introspective work of truly knowing ourselves is some of the most vital work we can do in our lifetime. This work can foster a sense of awareness, a sense of self confidence, and most importantly a sense of internal peace. If we look at our life as a life school of sorts, with each challenging experience our question is no longer, “why is this happening to me?” but rather, “what is this here to teach me?”

I utilize a strength based, psychodynamic approach in my work with clients and draw from by background in depth psychology, somatic movement and mindfulness to provide an integrated approach to emotional well-being.

A great deal of my clinical experience is in working with:

  • Addiction
  • Substance Abuse
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Eating Disorders
  • Family Conflict
  • Relationship Issues
  • Individuation Issues

 If you are interested in learning more about me, please visit my website. I provide free 20-minute prospective client video consultation to answer any questions you may have, and to help us to determine if working together would be a good fit.  From there, I meet with my clients weekly for 50-minute sessions. My rate is $80-100 per session based on income. Please feel free to contact me to schedule a consultation or with any questions you have.  

Be realistic: Plan for a miracle
