What is Integrative Psychotherapy?
As human beings, we are simultaneously physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual beings. Genuine healing and growth require that we pay attention to all of these dimensions of our experience.
Anxiety, depression, and other distressing symptoms often arise when we have become split off from important parts of ourselves. As an Integrative Psychotherapist I can support you in listening deeply to your own body, heart, mind and higher aspirations. By listening deeply in all of these dimensions of your experience, you reconnect with the wisdom and capacity for self-healing which is your natural birthright.
As a healing practitioner I believe that:
Psychotherapy should be about loving and honoring yourself, not fixing yourself.
Even when you are experiencing painful/distressing symptoms, you remain fundamentally sane and are always the best expert on your own experience.
Relationships characterized by: trust, respect, warmth, empathy and genuineness are the best support for healing and growth.

Appreciations from Clients
"I've come a long way from where I was when I began meeting with you. I'm a lot more comfortable with who I am now...less willing to put up with bad treatment from anyone..."
"Thank you so much for all your guidance... You have helped me listen to the most important voice of all, my Self."
"You truly were a blessing during my time of need."
"...it was your kindness that has made an infinite difference in my life and has allowed me not only to return to my industry... in a position of leadership, but to also begin to like myself and see the possibility of things I didn't see as possible before, but that you had a hope that one day I would. Lee, thank you."
Fees and Insurance
My fee for a regular 50 minute session is $100. I have a limited number of flexible fee spots available for clients in financial need who are committed to ongoing weekly therapy.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I accept victim's compensation from many states and can act as an out-of-network provider for many insurers. This means you pay me directly and then I submit an invoice to your insurance company asking that you be reimbursed for my services. Please ask your insurance company if they will reimburse for out-of-network mental health providers.
