Tailored individual therapy to treat your needs: combining EMDR with talk therapy.

EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It is a form of therapy that helps people heal from difficult life experiences. Distressing experiences can block the brain’s natural and adaptive recovery, and memories can become “stuck” in the brain. EMDR is designed to reactivate this natural healing process through alternating eye movements, sounds, or physical taps. I have seen how amazing EMDR is for my clients, and I have experienced it myself. Watching their healing process has made me more confident that I can help future clients.

I provide online psychotherapy throughout Florida.

Does Teletherapy really work?

You may have reservations about online counseling. Does it feel uncomfortable or impersonal? It may at first, but many of my clients have expressed satisfaction to the ease of online sessions. Numerous studies have demonstrated its effectiveness and outcomes are comparable to in person services.

In today’s world, teletherapy simply makes sense. It fits perfectly into our busy lives.

No wasting time sitting in traffic or waiting rooms and feel more comfortable opening up in the familiar comfort of your own home.

What is trauma?

Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes. Big T traumas include natural disasters, car accidents, sexual assault and physical injury. Little t traumas include life transitions like divorce, having a child, bullying, and financial or relationship difficulty. Traumas can be single event experiences, or happen long term over a period of time. I use EMDR therapy to help people work through their hardest experiences so they can live the rewarding life they desire and deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

I welcome your questions. In fact, I encourage them.

Here’s a list of common questions you and your loved ones might want to know.

How do counseling sessions typically last and how much does it cost?

Counseling sessions typically last 60 minutes for the first session and 50-60 minutes for each additional session. If you are paying out of pocket and not using your insurance, sessions are $150. 

Are sessions covered by my insurance?

I take United, Oxford, Oscar, and Aetna plans. I am not paneled with Florida Blue or Medicare.

How do I seek reimbursement from my insurance company?

This is for out of network reimbursement only. If you have an insurance you would like to use that I do not accept, you may get reimbursed directly from your insurance company after you pay for the session. In order to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, you would need to call them and ask what services are covered. Often, insurance companies request a detailed receipt, often called a superbill. I will provide that receipt for you in the portal, if you let me know that you would like one.

I work during the day; do you have other appointments available?

No, at this time, my evenings are booked. I have appointments available from 9-4pm.

How long will I need to come to counseling?

It really depends on the person and their goals. Length of treatment will be discussed with you during the first few sessions along with their therapeutic goals. During treatment, I encourage clients to check in with me about how therapy is progressing and I will check in with you about how therapy is going and adjust our time frames accordingly.

Where do sessions take place?

You may come to my office, located at 1421 Pine Ridge Road Naples, or we can utilize telehealth services.

I’d love to schedule my first appointment. How do I go about finding a spot in your schedule?
