Compassionate Individual Therapy
& Pre-Surgical Evaluations
Change isn't always easy. But you're always worth it.
About Individual Therapy
We provide individual therapy using a variety of evidence-based therapeutic tools including:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART)
Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)
Due to the nature of our work, we often combine these psychological tools with an emphasis on mindfulness and body awareness at a gentle, trauma-aware pace.
After a free 15-20 minute consultation appointment, you will be connected with the best provider for your needs.
Then, you will complete intake paperwork at your own pace and in your home using our HIPAA compliant telehealth platform prior to your initial face-to-face (or telehealth) introductory intake session.
Once your questions are answered and you begin treatment, you can feel secure knowing we value and respect your privacy, your autonomy and your needs. We nurture and encourage open dialogue and work with you as a team.
We offer 30-minute, 50-minute and 90-minute appointment options, depending on your needs and preferences.
About pre-surgical evaluations & post-operative support
Having bariatric surgery is a life-changing, and sometimes life-saving, decision. Many insurance companies require a pre-operative psychological evaluation. While many licensed therapists can grant you 'clearance' for the surgery, our team is different. Why? To us, this evaluation is not a ‘hurdle’ to be passed or a test with right or wrong answers. It is an opportunity to explore your strengths and to identify areas you may need additional support in your post-bariatric surgery life. We know that after surgery, you will likely experience changes in your close relationships, body image, eating patterns and habits, emotional relationship to food, and more. That is why we have ongoing support options available to you long after you recover from surgery.
Spinal Cord Stimulator
We also offer evaluations for patients preparing for spinal cord stimulator placement. This procedure is a welcome alternative for those who wish to forego conventional surgery or chronic opioid therapy, which both have serious risks associated with their use. Whether you are considering the stimulator treatment option and want to discuss the risks and benefits, are scheduled for your procedure and need an evaluation for your medical team or health insurance, or had the device implanted and want support around living with it, we are here.
