Why should I start this journey?
You have an interest in making change, an internal pull. I have also experienced that. It can be very strong.
This will be a warm, nonjudgmental and safe space for you to find a way to move from any pain or discomfort you are experiencing to the life you want to be living.
I give you a tremendous amount of credit for making this first step. Together, we will dive into a journey of wellbeing and happiness. It will be unique to you.
This is your time. Seize the moment.
Live your truth!

How important is therapist/consultant selection?
Coming to therapy and engaging can have anyone feeling vulnerable. Just as you are all unique individuals, your therapist is also an individual with unique experiences. Making sure the relationship is a good fit is extremely important to the process. I will do my best by the end of our first phone call to see if we will be a good fit. You will also have time available for asking me any additional questions.
If I start this journey does it mean something's wrong with me?
Being human means we are constantly being subjected to the human experience- this includes change, discomfort, pain, hurt, loss, etc. It also includes the "good stuff," which can be just as difficult to navigate.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THIS.
I feel weird about talking to a stranger!
I agree! This can be daunting, however, we will first have a free and confidential phone consultation to gather information and to answer any questions you may have. Getting to know each other and building a therapeutic relationship, let a lone any relationship, takes time. This is all part of healthy boundaries in new beginnings.
Thank you for considering letting me into your life!
What will our first session look like?
The first session is a foundational building block for our work and relationship to come.
It may even be the first time you experience a sense of relief.
Transformation begins here!
While gathering information through questions and natural conversation, we will start looking at the different "puzzle pieces" that have made who you are as well as identify our starting point to get you to achieving those desired goals as soon as possible!
Feeling stuck? Not to worry- we will also use this time to map out small, achievable steps in getting you to where you want to be
PERSONALLY AND/OR PROFESSIONALLY!
This is also a time for you to be able to ask me questions about my practice, my interests and my life. Please reference Practice Philosophy for more information.
How much do your services cost?
Please contact me today to inquiry further about cost.
What about insurance?
Insurance companies have been dictating people’s care for long enough. Being the provider I am, having dedicated myself to a consistently higher quality level of care, I pride myself on being able to provide you, my client, with as many options for you as I can. While I may not work with insurance companies directly, we can discuss possible out-of-network reimbursement between you and your insurance company to help make counseling more affordable!
*Please note insurance does not acknowledge wellness consulting/motivational work as service*
What happens if you go out of town?
If I do happen to leave town I will do my best to notify you in advance. Circumstances do occur and, if needed, sessions over the phone or Skype are available to you. In case of emergency, please call the police or 911.
How long before I start to see changes I want for my life?
This varies from person to person. Therapy only works if you are willing to do the work involved. With guidance and support from me, we will immediately dive into our work together and identify successes and barriers you have already encountered in your life. I practice from a strengths-based perspective meaning you are your greatest strength and you already posses several meaningful coping skills that have gotten you through previously difficult situations.
So what are you waiting for?
