My Private Practice Associates

In my private practice, I employ and supervise post-graduate Registered Associates who are earning hours toward independent licensure as Marriage and Family Therapists, Professional Clinical Counselors, or Clinical Social Workers.  They see clients on some days when I am not available, and their fees are generally somewhat lower than mine.


In order to help provide you with the highest quality of services, each of my Associates meets with me regularly to consult with me about their cases.  You can contact me, or contact one or more of them directly, if you are interested in meeting with them.
