Psychological Services

Therapeutic Approach & Orientation

I aim to create a genuinely collaborative, warm, and nonjudgmental space that I hope makes it easier to open up and engage. I provide evidence-based care, by which I mean my work is rooted in what scientific research reveals about best care practices. My orientation and training is primarily in cognitive-behavioral therapy, and I also draw from psychodynamic therapy and mindfulness-based approaches depending on an individual's goals, their preferences, and relevant science. I acknowledge the reality of systemic oppression, and strive to provide equitable care for people of all identities, backgrounds, and lived experiences.

Services

Individual therapy: I offer psychotherapy for adult individuals. Most sessions are weekly and 50 minutes, although this can vary based on the treatment goals and preferences.

Couples therapy: I offer couples therapy according to the Psychobiological Approach for Couples Therapy (PACT) model. Sessions are recommended to be in-person, weekly, and are between one and two hours long.

Psychodiagnostic assessment: Accurate diagnosis is often crucial to appropriate mental health treatment. I offer diagnostic interviews for adults who wish to know whether they have a psychological disorder. These are typically ~150 minute interviews, after which I will provide a report and feedback session. Continuing as a patient may be possible but is not necessary. This service is recommended for those seeking diagnostic information in my areas of expertise, which include anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, bipolar and related disorders, trauma- and stressor-related disorders, and obsessive-compulsive and related disorders.

Get Started

How to begin

To get started, reach out to me for a brief, free phone consultation in which we will determine whether your needs match with what I offer. 

 

At the beginning of therapy, we will take time to do a thorough assessment and discuss the focus and goals. For those who are concerned about expenses, we can discuss strategies to maximize benefit while keeping time in therapy to a minimum.

Teletherapy

I currently offer therapy both in-person in central Austin and virtually in the state of Texas. There is now considerable scientific evidence that teletherapy is no less effective than face-to-face therapy.

Current availability

As of now (6/21/24), I have a brief, 2-3 week waitlist for both individuals and couples.

Fees

For individual and couples therapy, my rate is 200 dollars for 50 minutes, and I prorate for other times as necessary. I do not accept insurance, although I am happy to provide superbills for out-of-network reimbursement. A portion of my sessions are based on a sliding scale fee for patients for whom the fee would be a burden. Documentation of finances is required for sliding scale eligibility.

Scheduling

I primarily schedule sessions during business hours (Monday-Friday from 8-4), and I schedule a few sessions on Wednesday evenings. At the moment, in-person sessions are only available Monday through Thursday. We can discuss scheduling further during the brief phone consultation.
