What can I expect from counseling?

You can expect that I will listen carefully to what you have to say.  Together we will discuss what issues to address and the various ways that we may accomplish this.

How long does counseling last? 

That depends on your goals and decisions.  Some people I have worked with once.  Others I have worked with for several years.

What if I can’t do everything we discuss?

Working together is always a process.  It is greatly dependent on what your own responses and choices are.  We will always pay attention to how things are working or not working and make adjustments as necessary.

What if I have to miss a meeting?

Life happens.  I would appreciate a phone call or an e mail as far ahead as possible.

What are your fees?

Private Pay fees are $130.00 an hour.  Private Pay Diagnostic Fees are $150.00 an hour. I accept some insurances and some EAP.  Other insurances I would be out-of-network, in which case I could provide you with a billing to submit to your insurance company.

What forms of payment do you accept?

I accept cash, check and credit card.
