I believe that clients have the ability to choose how to resolve their own problems and can make their own decisions with my assistance as a facilitator. We can't choose what happens to us, but we do get to chose how we respond. As a counselor, I hope to facilitate for my clients greater self-awareness through their life experiences that lead to increased confidence, self-esteem, and the capacity to effectively navigate the complex challenges of life.
Some clients need only a few counseling sessions to achieve these goals, while others may require more counseling.
My counseling practice is guided by Reality Theory. I believe that a client’s self-awareness and freedom of choice are keys to developing self direction and independence.
My counseling approach will include evaluating current behaviors, planning future action, and examining relationships. We will collaborate to provide you with methods to solve problems utilizing your own strengths.
Fees & Forms
Sliding scale available on request- please call to discuss prior to booking your initial session
Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) and United (Optum) insurance plans accepted. Please check with your insurance company to verify copay, deductibles and limitations prior to your first appointment.
Fee is due in full at the time services are rendered unless previous arrangements have been made.
Payment may be made by credit or debit card (including Health Savings and Flexible Spending Accounts), or by check or cash. A receipt will be provided upon request.
If we decide it is not a good fit, you will not be charged for your initial appointment and I will provide a list of referrals.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, a 24-hour notice is required. You may call, email, or text your notice. There is a $50 charge for missed appointments without 24-hour notice, as the time you have reserved is set aside exclusively for you.
Before you arrive for your first session, please fill out the intake form, and read and sign my disclosure statement. The forms may be submitted electronically via email or printed and turned in at your first session. If you are unable to complete the forms in advance, I am happy to complete them with you during our first session. Registration is required for each person participating in therapy.
