My Approach to Helping
Being an adult is difficult.
Parenthood can be miserable, at times.
It's challenging to maintain good relationships, and it's horrible being stuck in bad ones.
Jobs can drain our energy and joy.
Handling all of these at once, month after month, is like juggling Rottweilers... and if you drop one, it's likely to bite you.
A little assistance can make a big difference. An experienced fishing guide who knows the waters can vastly improve your odds of success.
That's where I come in. I specialize in working with smart, competent adults who are:
- Tired of juggling
- Feeling bad, too often
- Struggling with relationships
- Dealing with past trauma
- In need of support for their recovery
More Info About My Practice
By working together, we can find clarity, identify options, and strategize the steps needed to get where you want to be. I offer several different approaches, depending on what you need to accomplish. We can work one-on-one, or with your partner. I have a variety of scheduling options, ranging from 15-minute check-ins to 3-hour marathons. Video conferencing is also an option.
My rates range from $175 for a 60 to 75-minute session to $250 for 90-minutes; I recommend longer sessions for couples work. I use a HIPAA-compliant mobile payment system to process credit, debit, HSA, and FSA cards. I am not currently in-network for any private insurance companies or Medicare/Medicaid, though that may change in time. I will happily provide you with a monthly "superbill" so you can seek reimbursement from your insurer.
Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed
If you've never worked with a therapist, you may be frightened to try it. There is a lot of stigma, especially for men, around the whole area. Honestly, it's ridiculous.
Got a legal issue? See your lawyer. Physical health problem? See your physician. Business challenge? Talk to a consultant. Thinking and feeling issue? Ummmm... ignore it, hide it, and maybe die from it. Why?
The longer we wait, the worse problems become, and the harder they are to treat.
Suffering robs us of happiness, time, and money. I see psychotherapy in much the same way as automobile maintenance: pay a little now, or pay a whole lot later.
