Phone therapy is convenient, powerful, insightful… and consistent.

I do believe all clients deserve care, regardless of their location or their ability to get to my office.
Due to a growing demand, I have opened one day of my office to phone sessions and consultations with clients. The space remains confidential, but the beauty of the space, is though we can not meet face to face, I can provide clients with therapy that they otherwise would not have at all.
