Considering counseling can bring up all kinds of questions. Here are some of the most common questions. I hope they help you make a decision about starting counseling.

I am here to help you sort out your thoughts and feelings so that you can make decisions in ways that will help you feel better. I won’t tell you what to do but we will support you as you explore your options. As an experienced licensed clinical social worker, I will help you and/or partner understand what is not working and teach you the skills to help you get what you want.
I believe that everyone possesses the innate power to take ownership and responsibility of their life. My goal in working together is to help you to take responsibility and ownership of your life. I always believe that you are the teacher and you truly have the answers to live the life that you are seeking. My role is to help support you, teach you skills to unearth your intrinsic knowledge, and provide guidance in your therapeutic journey. You may be wondering if I have any expectations for therapy. My only expectation is that you commit to your growth because you deserve to transcend into that happy, peaceful, successful version of yourself that you desire.
I have been helping individuals accomplish their personal transformation by applying three simple concepts: Awareness, Alignment, and Action. Awareness builds understanding about your beliefs that guide your actions. Alignment helps you to sync with your authenticity and personal beliefs about happiness. Lastly, action allows you to use the wisdom from your awareness and alignment to actively participate in the creation of your life.
My mission is to help you live life confidently and empowered by helping you gain "Awareness, Alignment, and Action". My focus is to help you feel happy and be successful in your goals.
I also know that people who attend counseling are 6 times more likely to feel better than those who try to solve their problems on their own. That said, like anything, you get out of therapy what you put into it. While I can’t guarantee you will end up happier, I can say that my clients who stay the course and who show up committed to the process achieve results that make them significantly happier in their lives and relationships. And I promise to do my best to help and support you on your journey. As part of that promise, I want your feedback along the way. I will actively seek out your opinions on how you see the therapy s progressing so that I can be of the most and best service to you
Making an investment in yourself and future is an exciting step in your life. My rates for the session is up to 160$ per clinical hour for individuals. A clinical hour is 50 minutes of 1:1 therapy and 10 min documentation time. I also offer a sliding scale to help therapy fit into your life and assist you with your goals of healing.
I am not on any insurance panels.
However, depending on your insurance company, you may be entitled to partial reimbursement as I am an Out of Network provider. While I do not offer direct insurance billing at this time, I am happy to support you in requesting reimbursement from your PPO insurance company for my services. That said, I am not a party to the contract you have with your health insurance company. So I cannot guarantee that you will get any reimbursement.
If you would like to submit a receipt to your insurance company – to see if they might reimburse you, simply ask me for help with obtaining the necessary documentation. You can then submit a claim to your insurance company directly for patient direct reimbursement. Some of my clients receive anywhere from 20% to 70% reimbursement for individual therapy. The amount (and whether you are entitled to reimbursement)is dependent on your policy benefits and if you’ve met your annual deductible.
