For New Clients
I am a senior psychotherapist and body/energy medicine therapist with over 25 years of experience in helping clients achieve wellness and healing from anxiety, depression, grief, trauma and pain. I enjoy working with clients who are spiritual, who seek personal growth, and who want help with relationship, health and/or work issues. I work in Northwest Washington DC near Tenleytown and in Old Town Alexandria VA.

Here is how one person described his work with me in body/mind awareness and healing: “I felt it was easy to trust you as a guide in a process… I was really in the moment…I was able to notice how each experience affected my body.”
The capacity to heal resides deeply within us. My goal is to encourage each person to take a creative healing journey–one that cultivates intuition, awakens self-discovery, and brings the mind, body and spirit full circle.

For psychotherapy: I take Blue Cross/Blue Shield PPO and Medicare for psychotherapy. If you have Blue Cross/Blue Shield, you will usually pay a copay (flat fee) or co-insurance (percentage) of the fee, after any deductible you have. If you have Medicare, Medicare will usually pay a portion of the amount, and your secondary insurance will pay the rest. If you don’t have secondary insurance or a Medigap policy, you will pay the remainder of what Medicare doesn’t pay. Most other insurances should reimburse you for much of my fee because I am a licensed clinical social worker.
Massage therapy/Energy medicine is insurance reimbursable for auto-related injuries and possibly if you get a doctor’s referral. Otherwise, it is an out-of-pocket expense that may be included in medical flex spending reimbursement or tax deductions–please consult your tax specialist to verify.
Many people choose alternative medical services for their effectiveness and to maintain privacy that insurance cannot provide.
