It takes courage to ask for help.

Whether you've been to therapy before or not, starting with a new therapist can be nerve-wracking.
In our first session, I will ask a lot of questions about what brings you to therapy and what you'd like to change or focus on in our work. You will get to share what's important to you and how you'd like to grow.
After that, I think of therapy like a road trip: you're in the driver's seat. You pick the destination and you control the steering wheel, the gas, and the brakes. I sit in the passenger seat with a map and help you get to where you want to go.
Sessions are approximately 50 minutes. We meet weekly, but for some people it might be more appropriate to meet twice a week, or every other week.
The total amount of time you spend in therapy is up to you. Many people see an increased benefit by week 6-8 weeks; many people choose to continue therapy for as long as they are seeing continued improvement. We continually review your treatment plan goals to make sure we are on the right track, and treatment ends when you feel you've completed your goals.
Initial 15-minute consultations are free, to ensure we are a good fit.
Effective January 31, 2021, fees are as follows:
Initial session: $200 for a 90-minute intake
Individual therapy: $180 for a 50-minute session.
I am in network with United, Optum, and Aetna insurance plans.
If I am not in network with your insurer, I can assist you in filing for out of network benefits. Typically, the insurer will reimburse you for some portion of the cost of treatment. You can request more information during consultation.
My office hours are Monday - Wednesday, 8am-5pm Central Time (7am-4pm Mountain Time).
No. Many of my clients have never been to therapy before, or have not been diagnosed with BPD. They report feeling overwhelmed by their emotions, acting impulsively, or behaving in self-damaging ways. If you read through this website and thought, "hey, that sounds a lot like me!" then we would probably be a good fit, regardless of what your past diagnoses may be.
I work with adults 18+. I have no upper age limit. My focus is more on symptoms than on age, so please feel free to schedule a consultation to see if we are going to be a good fit.
Depending on what works best for you and what your symptoms are like, I might use any of the following in our work together:
Heck yes! I am a big fan of whatever works to make a positive change in your life. If MAT helps you to stay away from your DOC and your life is better because of it, I'm 100% supportive.
I support whatever it takes to get you living the life you deserve. If AA, NA, OA, SLAA, or any other 12-step program is a key part of your recovery, then I am behind it. I am familiar with the 12 steps and will work to supplement your progress through those steps if that is what you want.
On the flip side, I will never push a 12-step program on anyone.
See the full answer here. I have been providing mental health treatment online since 2017. Online therapy sessions give you the freedom to fit appointments into your busy schedule, without worrying about the additional time required to travel to/from the office, or struggle to find childcare. And then there's the pure convenience factor - attending therapy in your sweatpants from the comfort of your couch!
The most up-to-date laws about online therapy say that the therapist has to have a license in the same state where the client is currently located. Since I am licensed in Texas, and Colorado (and hold a telehealth provider registration in Florida) those are the only states where I can practice.
