My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, and National Board Certified Counselor, but more importantly, I am the mother of six children and I understand the concerns that come with raising and parenting children. My practice offers a warm, safe environment for you and your family. I have worked as a child and family pyschotherapist for over twenty-five years. Clients receive a free consultation visit to discuss concerns and questions before beginning counseling. I accept insurance as an Out of Network Provider and offer a sliding scale fee in an effort to make counseling affordable for all.
More Info About My Practice
In addition to working with children I am particularly involved in working with women on issues like dating, single parenting, school and career goals, divorce, emotional, verbal and physical abuse and unhealthy behavior patterns effecting their lives.
Are you in an abusive relationship with a spouse, friend, sibling or parent? If you have to wonder, you might already have the answer.
I have worked successfully with women on exploring the relationships in their lives and helping to discover what is healthy and what is unhealthy. Counseling can provide the listening ear and needed feedback to help examine the emotional relationships in your life.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
Counseling can be short term or long term depending on the needs of the client. Short term is approximately six weeks and long term is anything longer than six weeks. Behavioral goals are set and reviewed at the the beginning of the six weeks. If clients successfully reach their goals within the first six weeks they may wish to end counseling. If not, they may continue with sessions until all goals are successfully met.
