My Approach to Helping
You are searching for a marriage counselor or an individual or family therapist. You may be feeling anxiety or depression. Or you’ve noticed that there are patterns in your relationship or beliefs about yourself or others that create barriers to inner calm, effective communication and relationship harmony. Together we work toward a better understanding of yourself, and creating effective communication in your relationships. Therapeutic support can help you gain and maintain inner resources for positive change. I offer a free initial 15-minute phone consultation. Please call me and please do visit my website.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
So many people spend time on that very fence - and once they start therapy, the most frequent comment is "I wish I'd come in sooner!" There are reasons for the fence: many people feel it's too hard to tell their story, or they have never gone to an "outsider" before to talk, or the expense is a consideration. I work collaboratively with clients, asking the questions that help them share their story. In my experience, even when reluctant to share with an "outsider," the relief people feel when they share - and then work toward insight and change - overcomes the reluctance. I am in-network with both Blue Cross Blue Shield of SC and Tricare, or you can check with your insurance company about "out-of-network" coverage. Many clients who self-pay opt to come in every other week - we schedule what is best for you.
