Behavioral & Mental Health (IPD), Counseling

Practices In: Morris
Patients Seen: All Ages

I believe in tak­ing a com­pre­hen­sive approach when work­ing with patients and not just treat­ing spe­cif­ic symp­toms. I strive to make my patients feel as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble by meet­ing them where they are at, men­tal­ly and emo­tion­al­ly, and build­ing a trust­ing rela­tion­ship first and fore­most. I enjoy empow­er­ing indi­vid­u­als by putting a strong empha­sis on self-care and help­ing make them­selves a priority.

Behav­ioral & Men­tal Health insur­ance cov­er­age varies by provider.
