Welcome to Luminance Mental Health Counseling!


I offer online counseling for your convenience at home. I started my own private practice specifically for the person who fights depression. Back in 2006, I myself battled severe depression for three years before getting help in the form of counseling and medications. 

If you are having any of the following symptoms then I would welcome you to try counseling with me: 

  • Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness

  • Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters

  • Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports

  • Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much

  • Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort

  • Reduced appetite and weight loss or increased cravings for food and weight gain

  • Anxiety, agitation or restlessness

  • Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements

  • Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or self-blame

  • Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things

  • Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide

  • Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches

At this time, I accept the following insurance: Excellus, MVP, Aetna, and Cigna. If you do not have an insurance listed, I charge $80 per session.
