What to Expect in Therapy
"A moment of self compassion can change your entire day. A string of such moments can change the course of your life."
-Chrisopher K. Germer
Therapy is about exploring the dark and the light, celebrating the joy and overcoming hardship. We are in this together, you are not alone!
My work with you is always in the spirit of collaboration. I am a deep and attentive listener, but also an interactive therapist. One of my goals is to give you my "toolbox" so you can manage your life outside the office. I invite you into feelings, which I see as a compass to guide you through fear, desire, hope, anger, blame, happiness and joy.
I encourage those that seek out my services to be honest and open about your feelings. All the parts of you are welcome and supported!
I make every effort to create a safe and non-judgmental space to share painful experiences and emotions in hopes it leads to a healing and accepting path.
Together we will take a more in-depth look into your family of origin and close relationships to better understand what you are going through and how these things may affect your current state of mind.
I welcome fear, sadness, grief, anger and many other forms of emotion, with open arms, so these feelings are expressed and received instead of repressed and swept under the rug to be forgotten.
I have an acute eye for creating awareness around body language and bodily reactions to sensitivities. Our body holds memories, reactions, feelings and trauma. Listening to the body is looking at the "whole" person. Our non-verbal communication offers insight into the psyche.
Fees and policies
I offer both 50 and 75 minute sessions. In our initial phone consultation we will discuss my fee and offerings in more detail.
Please know I offer several sliding scale appointments because I want therapy to affordable for everyone! Sliding scale begins at $90 and is based on need and income. My sliding scale therapy times are from 9am - 4pm.
Each session is for 50 minutes, however we can arrange 75 minutes if you prefer. It's important to remain consistent throughout our work, so we will meet weekly. I have a 48-hour cancellation policy. All cancellations should be done by phone or email.
I am not on any insurance panels therefore I accept private pay only. If you are eligible for reimbursement, I will create a monthly super bill for you to submit to your insurance. I do accept direct HSA payments if you have a card with a Visa or MasterCard logo on it.
