Take the first step.




You have felt pressure your whole life.

Maybe it was pressure from your family: pressure to succeed, a parent’s expectations to live up to, a family culture where you never felt good enough, or pressure to be someone you were not.

Or maybe you have put pressure on yourself: to make others happy (often sacrificing your own happiness), to never let others down, to always excel and achieve, or to not take up too much space in the world.

You’re exhausted and you wish you could just turn off the noise in your head: the self-criticism, the worry, or the feelings of uncertainty.

You want to feel free to live life on your terms and to just be who you are without shame, anxiety, or guilt.







Hello, I’m Ryan. It’s nice to meet you.

Therapy with me is a safe space to be yourself: you are safe to say what you want, safe to feel whatever you feel, safe to explore who you are, and safe to imagine who you want to become. There is no right or wrong thing for you to say and there is no topic too big or too small for us to explore together. I will really listen to you, and we will work together to get you to where you want to go.

During our work together, I will support and encourage you to be more present with your emotions (you may cry but I think you may laugh at times also) to understand how you think, and to grow in awareness and acceptance of yourself. When you leave therapy, you will likely have a changed perspective, more self-acceptance and self-compassion, and better tools to handle whatever life throws at you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your fees?

My fee is $250 per 55-minute session.

Do you accept Medicaid?

No. I do not accept and cannot work with individuals who have Medicaid.

Do you accept insurance?

I accept Kaiser Permanente insurance. If you have insuranace other than Kaiser, I can provide you with a receipt to submit to your insurance for potential reimbursement. Contact your insurance company to inquire about out-of-network benefits. Although there is no guarantee, many clients often can get at least a portion of the cost of therapy reimbursed by their insurance.

Do you offer therapy online or in-person?

I provide therapy in-person at my office in Denver, Colorado as well as by video conference with individuals anywhere in Colorado or New Jersey.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

I have a 48-hour notice requirement for all cancellations. Otherwise, the full rate is charged for the appointment. Appointment no-shows are charged the full rate.

Where can I find information about getting a good faith estimate?

Starting on January 1, 2022, federal laws regulating client care have been updated to include the “No Surprises” Act which requires health care providers to provide current and potential clients a “Good Faith Estimate” (GFE) of the cost of treatment. This is intended to provide you with transparency about your expected medical expenses and to protect you from surprises when you receive medical bills.

To ensure no “surprise billing”, my fees for counseling are transparent and listed on your new client paperwork, and always discussed and mutually agreed to before counseling services begin.

Because every client’s journey in therapy is different, it is challenging to estimate in advance the length of treatment. Some clients come to therapy for just a few sessions while others find it beneficial to attend therapy for months or years. Therefore, the Good Faith Estimate is just an estimate based on an assumed treatment period. You may choose to come to therapy more or less frequently or for a shorter or longer duration. You are always in charge of how often you attend sessions and you have the right to end treatment at any time.

During the initial video consultation, I will verbally provide you with a Good Faith Estimate (GFE). This estimate also will be available to you in writing and you can access it through the Simple Practice portal. If you are a current client, I will be providing you with a GFE as well.

Good Faith Estimate Notice

• You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

• You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

• Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

• If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

• Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit or call 1-800-985-3059.
