It's okay to choose a path that leads you to the creation of new options, new thought patterns, a newer and more balanced you.
Personalized Attention to Your Needs
Perhaps you are down or feeling anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, your health. Are you a new parent, or just feel that you need help living the life you want to live? Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-reflection, and in my sessions, I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a growth mindset and the adoption of new thoughts and reactions. I have the tools and professional experience to help you.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
At this time I do not take any insurance. I would be what is considered an out-of-network provider. Some insurances may reimburse for services received outside of their network. I will provide you with a receipt for medical documentation following each payment.
HOW DO I MAKE PAYMENTS?
All payments will be accepted through a cash app. Details are outlined in New Heights Counseling Consent Forms.
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
I can be reached via email or phone to set up an appointment. Each paid service will begin with an intake session. The intake session is where we get to know each other. The information you provide will be instrumental in the type of work we do together and so that I can create a plan that is specific to you and your needs. Forms will also be reviewed so that you are fully aware of the care you will be receiving.
