I work one-on-one with individuals, and I love working with couples at any stage in the relationship. I connect well with adults, from the young to the very old. I am open to a significant support person coming into a session with you if you think this would be helpful and we have discussed it before hand.

What you can expect…
When you call or email me expressing your interest in my services, I will return your call or email within 24 hours. If you are difficult to reach, please leave a phone number and specific time frame at which you can be contacted. The first phone contact is a free consultation, in which I will tell you whatever you want to know about me and how I work, and I will gather info from you about what you are needing or looking for. If I am not the one you need to see, I will be happy to give you referrals to other providers or community services. If you decide to come see me, we will schedule an appointment.
My fee is $150 per hour. Currently, I don't take any insurance. However, I can provide a receipt for services, which clients can then send in to their insurance company for "Out-of-Network reimbursement".
~ With counseling, you’re investing in yourself. ~
Individual/Couples: Upon our initial phone or email contact, I can email or fax you forms to fill out at home if you like so you can bring them with you to our meeting. If not, then I ask that you arrive 15 minutes early to your first appointment to sign a couple of forms. Please come into our lobby and make yourself comfortable. If I am not there to meet you at the door, I will leave your forms on a blue clip board on the coffee table for you to fill out (if you haven’t already), and I will come out and greet you when it’s time. (My appointments are on the hour and we meet for 50 minutes. The remaining 10 minutes I spend writing up notes, phone calls or anything else related to your services.) The first few minutes I like to spend on introductions and establishing an initial comfort level. Then we will go over forms and answer any questions. And then we’ll get started!
