I moved to Las Vegas in 1998, I worked in Emergency Medicine for 12 years. The last 4 of those years I worked with a critical care helicopter transport unit. While I thoroughly enjoyed the medical community, I found myself mesmerized by how people’s thoughts dictated their emotions, behavior and ultimately their personal relationships. Through my graduate studies and clinical work, I now realize that the entire context of people’s lives must be considered when moving toward personal growth and relational harmony. I believe people need a strong foundation for lifes ever changing ground. However, my primary concern is always connecting with my clients to determine the appropriate approach to help them reach their goals in lieu of forcing them to fit into a standard paradigm or a set of step-by-step instructions.
I provide Concierge Psychotherapy Services to individuals and couples. What this means for you, I maintain a smaller caseload and I make myself more available to my clients on an as needed basis. Because of this I do not require the “standard practice” 24-hour cancellation notice; I only require a 12-hour cancellation notice. I also allow clients to make up their missed appointment within the same week of the original scheduled appointment, without the cost of a rescheduling fee and as my schedule allows. Otherwise, the full cost of the session will be charged.
