ONLINE THERAPY – Recent years have seen a growth in telehealth. I find teletherapy to be effective and useful.

SESSIONS – Sessions are 50 minutes and at a regular time that suits you, weekly, although sometimes held two times a week.
FEE – My standard fee is $175 per 50 minute session. Payment is due at the time of your scheduled appointment. Fees may be paid in cash, check, or online below via Paypal. If you are using Paypal, please make payment on, or before, the day and time of your session.
CANCELLATION POLICY – Your appointment each week is your commitment to our work together. Please notify me at least 24 hours in advance of any need to cancel or you will be required to pay the full cost of your treatment.
INSURANCE – I do not currently accept insurance. A number of PPO plans allow clients to choose an out of network provider, and in such cases, I am happy to provide the necessary paperwork so that you might be reimbursed for my services whenever possible.
MENTORING THE WRITER –
Focused on helping the writer imagine, and reach into, the underlying narratives and archetypal themes of their work, whether personal (memoir) or the cultural storytelling of screenwriting.
Mythos, the Greek word for story (unlike contemporary usage which implies a lie), is the way we organize and understand an experience. Personal mythology is usually created in childhood and may organize our experience in narratives that are no longer effective. Cultural mythology is a group story the wider community chooses to carry for meaning.
My own writing journey led me to create a system to lead workshops in writing the inner landscape. This work focuses on images from nature as metaphors to locate the writer in the terrain of personal story, exploring the inner place of elements, and weather patterns of mood, emotion, and perception.
