THERAPY CASELOAD FULL--NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW THERAPY CLIENTS

 

I offer personalized care and flexible scheduling for therapy services to individuals 18 years+.  I do not provide therapy services for couples, families, or children/teens at this time.  

 

Currently, in-person therapy is offered in Nevada.  Occasionally, online therapy may be an appropriate modality and will be discussed and utilized as appropriate, especially for clients located in states that have successfully implemented PSYPACT (i.e., AZ, CO, DE, DC, GA, IL, MD, MO, NE, NV, NH, NC, OK, PA, TN, TX, UT, VA, AL, AK, KS, KY, OH, WV) or who are located in Hawaii, a state that does not currently accept PSYPACT, but in which I am licensed.

Therapeutic specialties include military and veteran populations, depression/anxiety, PTSD, when personality traits that are making life, work, and/or relationships difficult, and how to use nutrition and supplements to support your best mental wellness. I work primarily from a psychodynamic standpoint with a healthy mix of cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and mindfulness techniques.  I am familiar also with several PTSD treatment protocols (i.e., prolonged exposure, cognitive processing therapy). When necessary, referrals can be provided (e.g., when another type of expert is needed).  I have one therapy dog, Stewart, who is ready and willing to assist with any therapy needs.

Please note, I have limited experience in the specialty areas of addictions and eating disorders and therefore, do not treat routinely these conditions.  Similarly, I do not have the resources to support individuals who are actively psychotic, manic, or suicidal. In these cases, referrals to a different level of care or expertise will be necessary.

Free 15-minute consultations via phone are offered so clients can assess the 'fit.'  Potential clients are also invited to email prior to scheduling. 

Assessment

Psychological assessment:

Psychological assessment (testing) requested through self-referral or through other means may include a mental status exam (MSE),  IQ, attention, functioning, academic achievement, and/or personality measures.  A number of tests make up an evaluation or 'test battery.'  Depending upon the referral source, feedback may or may not be available to the client.  However, in all cases allowed, ShrinkWrapt will provide as much information and feedback as possible.  Currently, these assessments are available for ages 18+.

Independent Medical Evaluations:

I currently contract with several entities to provide disability assessments, records reviews, fitness for duty assessments, and second opinion evaluations.  These are business to business referrals only.  I do not provide currently disability assessments, fitness for duty, or veteran compensation and pension (C & P) evaluations or nexus letters per self-referral. 

Consultation Services

Consultation services are available to educators, attorneys, physicians, and other mental health professionals via phone, email, in-person, or televideo, across the U.S. and overseas.  

In any of these cases, please contact me for further information.
