Sometimes self-help resources and educational classes aren’t enough. You may need more professional help to guide your child along a healing path towards mental health and well-being.
As a licensed clinical psychologist, I’ve been providing such guidance to children, adolescents, and families for over thirty years. I’d be glad to help you and your child, too.
Currently, I'm able to provide a limited number of private consultations for a few new families each month. This ensures that when I do see you, I’m able to give you my full attention and best possible service.
Currently, the Wait Time for new patients is approximately: 4-6 weeks.
PLEASE read all of the orientation materials (including links), below.
I'm hoping these pages will help you to make an informed decision, and
ultimately to feel more confident and comfortable beginning services with me!
I provide Mental Health services for school-age children and adolescents between 6 to 18 years old.
These services are provided to youth regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, or politics. Also regardless of their physical or mental abilities or disabilities.
NOTE: I only see private-pay patients at this time. That means you are responsible for payment in full at the time of service.

I hope these quick FAQ's give you a better idea of how I may or may not be helpful to you. Feel free to contact me with any remaining questions. Or we can meet for an Initial Consultation to further assess your child's needs (see below).
If, after the initial assessment, I'm unable to help you any further (eg., my therapeutic approach or expertise is not a match for your needs), I'll try to help you find other service providers, whenever possible.
Current fees are $180/hr.
Standard 45-minute therapy sessions are $140.

You will need to pay as you go. We will provide monthly statements that can be used for seeking partial, out-of-network reimbursement from your health insurance or health savings account. Insurance reimbursement rates vary widely.
If you’re a new client seeking private psychological services, you’ll need to begin here.
The purpose of the Initial Consultation is to gain an understanding of your current concerns, assess your child’s functioning and needs, and make recommendations for how best to meet those needs.
Our core therapeutic coaching package is for families who are committed to making real changes in their lives. You and your child will receive intensive Mindful Solutions coaching, tailored to your child’s specific difficulties, during this 6-week program.
NOTE: This treatment program is available only to those who have been through an Initial Consultation & Assessment with me.
These half-hour Telehealth consultations provide you with ongoing support and booster sessions, as needed.
NOTE: This service is available only to those who have been through the FIT Program, or other equivalent treatment and training with me.
Parents often ask, "How do I prepare my child to see a psychologist?"
You may be especially concerned if your child is ambivalent, reluctant, or even resistant to participating.
I strongly recommend that you prepare your child before an initial appointment by following these guidelines.
