Treatments & Modalities Utilized


I know that it is sometimes hard to meet in the office. Sometimes you’re too busy, live too far away, or have trouble finding childcare. So I’ve added video counseling services. Now we can meet wherever it’s most convenient for you – your couch, your kitchen, or your hotel room.  All you need is a computer and broadband internet access. It’s secure and accepted by major health insurance companies. And - perhaps the best reason to consider it is the ease of use. If you’ve got any questions at all just let me know. I’m happy to help you figure out whether video sessions make sense for you.
