Couples counseling is not applicable to insurance so all couples and marital counseling will be self pay..

My office is located in northwest Gainesville in the Millhopper/Thornebrook area.*   

2830 NW 41st St. Suite B, Gainesville 32606

At the time of your appointment, come on into the office and take a seat in the waiting room (pictured here) I will be out to greet you shortly. Should you need to reach me, you can text me at 301.806.0211 and I will get back with you as soon as I finish with my previous client.


*please note that several maps apps do NOT get you to my office but often to Thornebrook II, which is around the corner. Make sure you look for Thornebrook III. My name will be on the building at Suite B.

It is helpful if you can remit your session fee or copay ahead of session time via PayPal. Please use the link to the left to pay directly. You do not need to have a PayPal account to use this form of payment. You can use your credit card/debit card as a guest to the site.

If you choose to pay in session, I will collect at the beginning of session so that ending time can be planned more easily. I accept most major cards, HSA cards, checks and cash.

Getting Ready for your first Appointment

Before your initial appointment, you will need to download and fill out the forms below.

You can send them to my HIPAA compliant email (, or you can mail them if your appointment is more than two weeks away.

The Cover page and Insurance  form below gets you started. Please send it to me via email as soon as possible. It can be sent as an attachment after you download an fill it out; or you can take a picture of it and send as a photo attachment. Contact me if email is not an option for you so we can make arrangements for another option.

Once you send me the Cover page form, I will review it and get back with you to set up your first session. At that time, please see the other 2 forms below- the Intake and Contract for services.  Fill those out and either email them or bring them to your first appointment.


If you hope to use your insurance, please fill in the parts of the Cover Page form that asks about insurance as fully as possible. Once I have that I will do my best to confirm your coverage and copays as listed on your form.  Again, to confirm your appointment I will need this right away as it can take a few days to verify. Please see my page on Insurance Questions to help in that process if applicable.
