Services and Fees
I offer therapy for couples.I offer therapy for individuals.
Whether you are in crisis or you just want to experience more comfort and intimacy with one another, seeking therapy as a couple gives you the opportunity to gain a clear awareness of the underlying emotional patterns—both helpful and unhelpful—at work in your relationship. This, in turn, can help you move through conflict and make changes where needed to reestablish the love and trust required for intimacy.
Personal therapy sessions are a safe environment where you can openly explore and find relief from the difficulties you may be facing at home, work or school. Individual therapy can help you find solutions to specific problems, but more fundamentally it encourages you discover your true, deeper self—who you are, how you think—and helps you choose ways of engaging the world that honor your genuine self.
I offer therapy for adolescents and families.I offer premarital counseling.
Many families experience bumps in the road – both little and big – as they grow and grow kids up. You may want support in parenting your child or teen, or desire for your teen to be a part of therapy. In a culture of high stress and expectations, your family might see how pressure and tension and relational problems can build and explode. Families preparing for divorce or learning how to co-parent afterward highly benefit from therapy as do blended families learning how to navigate new relationships and roles.
Many couples considering marriage or other long-term commitment find couples therapy especially helpful. I recommend a six-session relationship exploration based on the PREPARE/ENRICH Inventory
for pre-marital and pre-engagement couples.
I work hard to make sure finances are never a barrier to getting help.
The average therapy session lasts 50 minutes. I recommend couples or family sessions to last at least 90 minutes. My fees average between $80-$120 per hour on a sliding scale.
I work with a supervising psychologist to be able to utilize most major health insurance plans and am an out-of-network provider for other plans. I am also able to accept payment through HSA or FSA debit / credit cards.
I provide reduced rates for graduate students preparing for a career in vocational ministry or in psychology.
