Individual sessions are 50-60 minutes long. Longer sessions are available and may be recommended from time to time. When someone starts therapy, it is best to come at least once per week until significant results are achieved.
My regular fee for an hour session is $120. I will provide a receipt that you may file with your insurance company to obtain reimbursement for your payment. When there is no insurance, I will negotiate my fee to arrive at a successful arrangement for both of us.
With over thirty years experience in the field of counseling, I have developed skills for handling almost any personal issue that life can throw at us. Twenty of those years have been in independent private practice. I assure you I've been stretched and motivated to continually learn and gain new skills. Just about the time I think I've heard it all, someone will surprise me and challenge me to grow professionally. I continue to be fascinated....
I have a broad range of experience in Emotional Transformation Therapy, the chemical dependency field, neurofeedback and biofeedback, trauma resolution, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), vocational rehabilitation, and emotionally disturbed children.
The services I provide include:
I facilitate groups employing a structured process designed for deep processing of unresolved issues from the past; for example, family of origin issues, violent relationships, addictive relationships, sexual violations, and PTSD.
The fee for group is $60 for a 2-hour group.
The typical marriage counseling session is 1 1/2 hours. I give homework to couples and consider the work a team effort. Without a doubt, the number one issue is communication problems and the number one issue in poor communication is problems with empathy. I place strong emphasis on building empathetic communication skills.
The fee for these sessions is $160.
