counselingoverview350x262 Counseling in my practice is offered on a short-term basis to individuals and their families for behavioral and emotional factors that affect a student’s performance in school. I have limited availability for individual counseling appointments, and am also careful to stay within my scope of practice and competency. My individual counseling philosophy is rooted in cognitive-behavioral theory, which is a directive and didactic form of treatment.  I focus my counseling services primarily on anxiety-management and social thinking challenges.  I am not on any insurance panels, but can provide you with the forms and codes necessary for reimbursement if you have arrangements to access out of network services. If you have a pretax medical spending account, I am happy to provide you with the necessary receipts. To determine if you child would benefit from counseling, please complete the intake form below, and email or fax it to me so I can be informed before we talk. Fax (916) 972-9500
