My Approach to Helping
Sputtering/creaky relationships? The "Love Mechanic" is here to assist! As a systemic and collaborative therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. We can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. Through a systemic approach we look at the relational contexts that influences the individual, couple, and family. This includes all aspects of life including internal and external influences such as family, community, and societal effects. Together we unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life
More Info About My Practice
I am an out-pocket-provider for fee-for-service. What this means is I do not charge your insurance company directly. Services may be reimbursed by your insurance company as an out-of-network benefit, health savings account, or flexible spending accounts. To inquiry about these benefits contact your insurance provider.
I provide a 30 minute consultation for free. My rate for a 50 minute session is between $150 a session. Payment for services is cash or check. Payment is required on the date of service.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
The most important factor in finding a therapist is finding someone you can connect. The research has shown that one the biggest factores in successful therapy is how connected the client is to the therapist. This is why I offer a 30 minute consultation for all potential clients. I want to assure that my clients feel a connection. If the connection is not present then I may not be the best therapist. I then will always provide additional resources to potential clients when I am not a good fit.
The Duration and Frequency of Therapy
The length of therapy is different for every client. I base my approach on each individual, couple, or family. On average most clients see me for 6 to 9 months. I believe that it is a collaborative effort to decide when therapy is done. My goal as a therapist is to assist you in not needing me. I see the therapist as the mechanic who provides the "tune-ups" to help you run more smoothly.
