“With courage, every person can develop the clarity and confidence to confront their challenges and restore wholeness to their lives. In connecting to your inner wisdom you open the door to self-compassion, peace, satisfaction, and transformation. I’m here to help empower you to do that.”
Haydn’s typical fee is $165 for individual therapy (50 min); he is able to work on a sliding scale if needed. Although he only works on a self-pay basis, he is able to provide documentation for clients to submit for out-of-network reimbursement from their insurance provider.
Haydn is currently accepting new clients for his group:
Post-Traumatic Growth Group
Group meets every Wednesday from 4:00-6:00 PM (EST) in person. Cost: $85 (low-cost options are available; contact us if cost is your only barrier to attending).
The purpose of this group is to bring together individuals who have experienced relational and specific trauma to identify, spur, and nourish the phenomenon of post-traumatic growth. We will spend our time building relationships and exploring the five domains of post-traumatic growth through existential, interpersonal, and experiential group therapy techniques.

This is an ongoing group open to anyone with an experience of trauma, especially relationally trauma, interested in fostering post-traumatic growth in relationship with others.
