My fee is $125 per clinical hour (50 minutes). This fee not only encompasses your session but the preparations before and paperwork after. I do have a sliding scale fee upon request based on household income. The sliding scale fee ranges from $70 - $125, and it is based $1 for every $1000. I accept cash, check, and credit cards. At this time, I do not accept insurance.
Types of Therapy:
I have worked with a diverse population of clients before. The majority of my training and experience has focused on working with children and adolescents through Play Therapy. Play Therapy is a growth and trauma based therapy using a child's natural expression through play to bring healing. Play Therapy can also help children build self-confidence and communicate better.
I also have experience working with adults through a number of therapeutic avenues. I am trained in EMDR levels I and II. EMDR is a trauma based therapy used with adults and children. I
am trained in the Family Systems Model and have experience utilizing CBT, TF-CBT, Narrative Therapy, Solutions Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness based practices. Other issues that I have experience working with are ADHD, Adoption, Attachment, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief and Loss, Identity Formation, School Adjustment, and Life Transitions.
In my opinion, the first session is one of the most important. In our first session, we will go over the practice policies, what to expect from a typical counseling session, and your goals for our time together. Due to my belief that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most significant pieces of counseling, part of the first session will also be used to determine if you feel like I will be a good fit for you as a counselor. Not every counselor is going to be the perfect fit for every client, and I want to make sure that I will be a good fit for you.
