What kind of services do you offer?

As a state certified therapist my services include individual and couples counseling.

What kind of person goes to therapy?

People like you. They might be your neighbors, friends or coworkers. Just about everyone needs help at one time or another to meet life’s challenges. Sometimes it takes a caring, neutral person who is trained to help you find the resources within yourself and the community to help you put your life back together or make it more satisfying.

What can I expect from therapy?

You can expect to be treated with respect and compassion in a warm, validating and private environment. Your sessions are always completely confidential. Together, we will develop plans to work through challenges, find solutions and help you develop the necessary resources within yourself and the community to accomplish your goals.
How often do I need to come to therapy?

After an evaluation period, we will discuss a schedule which works best for you. I may work with you one to three times a week, all depending upon your needs.

Do you see people every other week?

I rarely meet with people less than once a week. The healing power of psychotherapy is most effective when practiced on a regular basis. I have found that less than once a week is not as effective for most people.
