My Approach to Helping
Greetings! I am a Licensed and Certified Mental Healh therapist with 20 years experience in the helping professions. I offer compassionate, non-judgemental approaches combined with cognitive and behavioral therapies. I specialize in Internet addiction, sexual addiction, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, depression, spiritual counseling and more. I am unique in that I come right to your home to work with you. I started my career in the Department of Social Services where home visits were common. I quickly learned how beneficial this is to me as a professional and to the client for privacy and comfort.
More Info About My Practice
I do have to say that if you are looking for a counselor who will accept your health insurance, I do not. I find the paperwork and demands of insurance companies to be unacceptable to me. I accept only private pay (cash or check) with two fee schedules ranging between $60-$90. Please contact me for details on payment options.
My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy
The purpose of psychotherapy is to help the client to identify self defeating thoughts, beliefs and resulting life choices and then to replace the with healthy affirmations and core beliefs. My role is to help the client see how he or she can find happiness and joy and success by making changes in their thought patterns and behavior choices.
