If you feel like you are in a constant state of stress, panic,or worry and consumed with sadness or despair then therapy can help you to identify underlying patterns that keep ​you stuck and give you the tools that you need to fight back-now and forever.  

I offer 100% Online Therapy services.





Why do I only offer Online Therapy?

Convenient

You can engage in services from a private location of your choosing (home, work, etc.). You also don’t have to worry about getting dressed and driving across town for an appointment. No more spending time in a waiting room when you can be done in an hour and back to your life. You don't have to find a babysitter, just put the kids to bed and take care of your needs.

Effective

Online psychotherapy is just as effective as meeting with a therapist in an office. It is not a substitute for face-to-face therapy.

Flexible

You are not restricted to having to meet during traditional office hours (i.e. 8-5) or Monday through Friday only. I have evening and weekend hours available for sessions which will make it more convenient for you and your family.

Accessible To All

Those of you who may have physical limitations and are home-bound can now engage in therapy services. Therapy services can also be provided to persons living in other countries. All you need is reliable internet connection and a computer, laptop, or tablet!

How Does It Work?

After your appointment is scheduled with me, I'll e-mail you a link to set up your client portal. You will be able to complete the intake paperwork prior to your first session, make payments, schedule and cancel your appointments. You can also send me secure messages. Your client portal can be accessed from any device at anytime you choose. A few minutes before your session, you'll simply click on a link to begin the session. We will have our therapy sessions on a secure connection to ensure your privacy.

Important Information

The primary pur​pose of an Emotional Support Animal (ESA)  is to help his/her owner by decreasing symptoms associated with a mental/emotional disability and aid in coping, thereby improving overall functioning and well being. The animal is not required to undergo any special training or be certified in any way. An Emotional Support Animal is different from a therapy or service animal as federal law only applies when it concerns housing restrictions and/or airline travel. The Emotional Support Animal may not be brought into public places (with the exception of an airport). Should the animal in question be in poor health, not current on its vaccinations, a nuisance to others, or aggressive in any way, federal law does not apply. 


Please note that I will not provide Emotional Support Animal Letters for just anyone who requests one simply because he/she want to keep a pet in what would otherwise be animal-restricted housing or wishes to travel with their pet only for convenience purposes. This issue is taken very seriously, as many people try to take advantage of labeling their pet as an Emotional Support Animal to get around certain restrictions and laws. I conduct a comprehensive biological-psychological-social evaluation and may request information from previous mental health or medical professionals.  You may also be required to attend a few follow-up sessions prior to a letter being written.  There must be a legitimate medical and/or mental/emotional reason (disability) why an individual is truly in need of an Emotional Support Animal.  This need must be a documented psychological disorder (e.g., panic attacks, depression, PTSD, etc.) and/or physical disorder (this needs to be verified by a medical professional). The individual must have a functional impairment in one or more of the following major life activities: walking, concentrating, hearing, self-care, performing manual tasks, social interaction, sleeping, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working, etc. 

Independent Diagnostic Psychiatric Evaluations

The completion of a Diagnostic Psychiatric Evaluation or what is commonly known as a Comprehensive Biopsychosocial Assessment starts with a clinical interview by a licensed mental health professional.  Three different dimensions will be assessed during the interview:  

a.  biological (genetic issues, age, developmental milestones, or physical characteristics, substance use history), 

b.  psychological (mental status, trauma, psychiatric symptoms, strengths, coping strategies), and 

c.  social (cultural, family, socioeconomic, legal history, military history, housing).  


Following the clinical interview, the mental health professional will complete a written report highlighting all the information gathered in each domain.  A psychiatric diagnostic may be given as well.  The mental health professional will also make recommendations for treatment services and interventions that will help to resolve issues that were identified.    


A Diagnostic Psychiatric Evaluation can be used by several organizations and agencies to include the military, schools, doctors or other medical professionals as a way to help them to better understand the person assessed more holistically.  This can also aid in a person receiving care and a treatment plan that is specific for his or her needs.
