Valued Directions Psychological Services

Your Values, Your Goals, Your Life

My Approach to Therapy

I primarily work from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework. Together, we’ll clarify what is most important to you, identify your life goals, and strategize ways to reduce your suffering while moving you closer to those goals.

My approach is transparent, intersectional, and above all: human. All of your identities are welcome here, so let’s talk about how your mental health intersects with race, gender, sexuality, spirituality, and all the other parts that make you, you.

I specialize in working with clients (16+) who identify across the spectrums of gender and sexual orientation, and families who want to learn how to be more supportive of their loved ones. My (virtual) therapy room is a safe/brave space for anyone whose identity tends to be excluded from society.

I offer individual therapy via tele-health. I also provide supervision, consultation, and workshops around topics of diversity and mental health. To learn more and see if we might be a good fit, reach out for a free consultation.

FAQ

Have a question you’d like to ask? I’m committed to providing the best care and experience I can. There’s no such thing as a bad question when it comes to mental health. Check out answers to FAQs below, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any additional questions.

DO YOU OFFER SLIDING SCALE RATES?

Yes! I have a limited number of sliding scale slots down to $120 based on income.

WHAT IF YOU DON'T TAKE MY INSURANCE?

If you have "out of network" benefits through your insurance, I can provide you with an itemized invoice called a "Super Bill" which you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Reimbursement is not guaranteed, however, and your insurance determines what amount to reimburse you. I encourage all clients to call their insurance to confirm benefits before initiating treatment.

HOW LONG DOES EACH SESSION LAST?

We will work together during your intake and over the course of treatment to determine the appropriate session length for you.

Individual therapy sessions typically last 45-minutes.

Intakes, couples, family, and group sessions typically last 60 minutes.

WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO STARTING TREATMENT?

The first step is to submit a request for a 20-minute free consultation (see below in the "Contact" section). During this consultation, we will learn a bit about one another and determine if Valued Directions is the right fit for your needs.

After the consultation, if we are a good fit, you'll schedule a 60-minute intake session. Between consultation and intake, I'll send you some forms to review and a registration questionnaire for you to complete.

During the intake, I'll ask questions about you, your symptoms, and your history. We will begin to identify treatment goals together, including identifying the frequency and duration of sessions that are most appropriate for you. We will also go over any questions you had from the forms.
