Are you experiencing problems in your relationship? Do you feel angry and scared about trouble with your teen? Is substance abuse damaging your family? Is your teen being self-destructive: eating disorder, cutting, lying, drugs, or plummeting grades? Is depression, anxiety, or a major life transition leaving you feeling unhappy, lost or confused? Going through a divorce? Fighting constantly with your child, partner or teen? Did the pandemic or news create lingering trauma or anxiety for you, your partner or your child? Facing a big decision and not sure what comes next? Do you wake up sad, tired, worried, or numb and want a better beginning for yourself and your family? Do you wish there was a better way? Would you like some help?
You’ve come to the right place. Things can and will get better. I can help. I’ve worked in the counseling field for many years. I’ve been well trained in practical solution-focused techniques that offer real results fast. If you’re motivated and willing to do the work and use the tools, therapy can give you a boost to move forward in your life. With the right assistance, you can and will get past any obstacles that have you feeling stuck. There’s hope.
I offer useful, sensible, evidence-based therapy techniques that will help you rapidly build the skills you need to make the changes you want for your family and relationships. My office is a safe, fun, and comforting space where you can get the help you need, without feeling criticized. I am kind, non-critical, and an excellent listener.
I offer life-changing counseling and communication tools, at reasonable rates. I don't like having to guess when I'm considering purchasing a service, so my rates are clearly listed here on the first page, for you to consider. I charge $150 for an initial session, which lasts 90-120 minutes: $100 per 60 minute session. If you call around and comparison shop, you'll find it's a fair and reasonable rate that's a bit lower than many, because I do not accept insurance. I can give you receipts to submit to your PPO insurance plan, for reimbursement, or to apply toward your out of network deductible.
Please see the left hand side menu, (top screen menu, if you're on your phone) or sitemap for more details about the various forms of counseling I provide, and for more information about my methods and counseling philosophy. There's a lot of information on my site that's easy to miss, if you're looking at it from your phone or mobile device.
Life is a journey, I can keep you company on that journey, and offer great tips and tricks for the rough patches. I look forward to getting to know you better on our travels together!
Don’t waste another minute of your beautiful life feeling sad, mad, scared, or lost. Do something about it. I’ll help. Take the first step to feeling better!
