My Approach to Helping
If you are searching for help today because you feel exhausted and hopeless from struggling with your teenager, our therapists at One Heart Counseling Center are here to help. Maybe you have had enough of "whatever", "I don't know" and door slamming. You love them, want them to grow into responsible adults, want to help them avoid making big mistakes and it's a lot of work! We know this kind of stress can also cause tension between spouses, which makes the situation even harder. What we do is help families understand the important stuff all healthy teenagers need to do to grow up and we find a way to navigate through this.
The benefit of this work is that families build the courage and trust to allow their teenager the space to safely learn, grow and move toward grabbing onto to the brilliant opportunities for success that life has to offer.
More Info About My Practice
At One Heart Counseling Center, we are all Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and Registered Art Therapists. We work with families to support healthy emotional development and emotional resilience. Because family is at the heart of everything you do in life. Let's talk about your questions, concerns, hestitations. Even if we don't end up working together, you will be closer to your answer about what the next step is for you and your family.
Just to answer some basic questions:
Our standard hourly rate is $200 per hour. Fees for sessions are due at the time of service. We do accept credit cards, including American Express.
We are considered out-of-network providers, so are not contracted with any insurance companies. However, we will call your insurance company to verify benefits for out of network services and will file claims on your behalf so that insurance reimbursement checks get sent to you without any extra hassle.
Give us a call or send us an email letting us know what kind of therapy you are looking for (teen therapy, family therapy, couples therapy, individual therapy for you) and just a couple words about what is prompting you to seek therapy at this time (feelings of anxiety or depression, acting out, trouble getting along, etc).
We'll match you with the best therapist and get your questions answered so you can move forward.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
We are all human beings which means we are inherently flawed. No one is perfect and everyone has their struggles. Just because a person goes to a therapist does not mean that are more weak or flawed than the next person. All it means is that a person is willing to get some perspective (because we can't see 360 degrees around our own self) or willing to learn about their humanness and find a way to manage it. It seems like acknowledging that one can't see everythingsolve everythingknow everything alone is just being realistic and, in fact, takes real strength and courage.
In my work as a therapist, I try to counter this stigma about therapy by normalizing the human experience of being flawed and teaching about ways that we can work with our flaws and vulnerabilities.
