Balanced Rocks


Individual Therapy

I offer 50-minute individual sessions. Clients often start with weekly sessions and then graduate to bi-monthly and monthly sessions as we progress in our work and clients grow more comfortable with independently applying therapeutic work.

Clients can expect to work with me for as little as 12 weeks if working on a single issue to 6 months to 1 year for more complex or multiple issues.

I accept Blue Shield and Magellan insurance. I will also help you utilize HSA/FSA accounts and out of network health insurance benefits.

Group Therapy

I offer weekly sessions of group therapy covering issues like long term weight control and healthy boundaries. Please contact me for current groups being offered. Or talk to your friends and get a group together. Participants in past groups have shared that the accountability and support of others is essential to their progress!
