Psychotherapy for adults (18 & up) individuals, couples and other relationship constellations, groups, families & expanded families.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. (EMDR International Association). I completed both levels of basic training in addition to advanced training in this integrative psychotherapy approach.
EMDR has been used effectively to treat panic, anxiety, upsetting memories, chronic pain, substance use disorders, trauma, and other conditions. Just as with any therapeutic modality, EMDR can be useful for many people and situations, but is most effective when we collaboratively include it in your treatment plan.

LETTERS IN SUPPORT OF GENDER AFFIRMING/TRANSITION-RELATED SURGERY FOR TRANS & GNC PEOPLE
I will write letters to support gender affirming surgery for trans and GNC folks. Because each insurance company and surgeon may have different requirements, please plan on bringing the requirements of each with you to your appointment. In general, we can complete this in one session.
The fee for this service is $150/hour. I will check your insurance and if I am in network, I will bill your insurance for you. You will be responsible for any co-pay or co-insurance. If I am out of network, I will supply you with an invoice to submit to your insurance company and you will be responsible for the full fee at the time of service.
Prior to your appointment, I will ask you to provide me with any documentation from your surgeon and/or insurance company that outlines the specific requirements for your letter. I will also ask you to complete some basic information information about yourself.
