Yes (Chickering; I am an out-of-network provider for other insurance companies - call for complete listing.)
I believe that the psychotherapeutic relationship can be used to understand the meanings of symptoms, crisis and emotional pain so that the creative potential of the individual can be reached. I am committed to the understanding of the individual's relationships in family and cultural context, as well as in the treatment. I also offer clinical supervision and seminars to therapists.
