Regular office hours will resume at a later date on Wednesdays (afternoon and evening) and Thursdays (afternoon, and evening) and Fridays (morning and afternoon).

I am considered an out-of-network provider.  Contact your health plan to inquire about your out-of-network benefits.  Statements to submit to your insurance company or flexible spending account for reimbursement are available upon request.


In general, the law protects the privacy of all communications between a client and a therapist, and I can release information only with written permission from the client.  But there are a few exceptions including, but not limited to the situations described below.


There are some instances in which I am legally obligated to take action to protect others from harm, even if I have to reveal some information about a client’s treatment.  For example, I must file a report with the appropriate state agency if I believe a child, elderly person, person with disability is being abused.


If I believe that a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person, I am required to take protective actions.  These actions may include notifying the potential victim, contacting the police, or seeking hospitalization for the client.  If the client threatens to harm him or herself, I may be obligated to seek hospitalization for him or her or contact family members or others who can help provide protection.  I will make every effort to fully discuss it with the client before taking any action.


In the event of a psychiatric emergency, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.  If you leave a voicemail during my office hours, I will return your call as soon as possible.
