Avondale Therapy


Your initial visit will consist of a diagnostic assessment that will last approximately 60 minutes. This allows both of us to gain an understanding of what brings you into therapy as well as reviewing some history to have a clear picture of who you are and what your world looks like. Each session after that lasts 50 minutes. The self-pay fee for an assessment is $150 and each therapy session is $125.


I am a credentialed provider for numerous insurance networks to help alleviate the financial barrier to treatment. Please check with your insurance carrier prior to scheduling to ensure in-network coverage. I am not credentialed with any Medicaid or Medicare plans, however I am paneled with the following:

– Companion Benefits Alternative Inc. (BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina, BlueChoice Health Plan, Federal Employees Program)
– APS Healthcare Inc.
– Aetna
– Cigna
– Magellan


After our initial assessment, I will contact your insurance company and submit all claims for reimbursement. Copays and deductible balances will be charged after insurance processes the claim. If you have out of network benefits with your insurance provider and you plan to file, I will gladly provide you with the appropriate documentation to include with your claim forms. Any reimbursements your plan provides will then be paid directly to you. I am unable to file claims with any insurance company that I am not in-network with. A credit card must be on file to cover all charges.

How can I help?

I offer specialized services in addiction counseling, utilizing evidence-based approaches to help individuals break free from the grip of addiction. My therapeutic arsenal includes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for trauma resolution, as well as mediation services to facilitate peaceful resolutions in interpersonal conflicts.

Furthermore, I take pride in providing licensing supervision to aspiring clinicians entering the mental health field. Guiding the next generation of therapists is a profound responsibility I cherish.

My areas of expertise encompass a wide spectrum, including drug and alcohol-related problems, distorted eating habits, compulsive overeating, depression, anxiety, and women’s issues, such as trauma, healthy relationships, and self-esteem.

If you or someone you know is seeking assistance with addiction, struggling with personal or relationship issues, or seeking licensure supervision, I am here to support you on your journey to wellness and professional growth. Let’s collaborate to address your unique needs and empower you to lead a fulfilling life.
