Counseling Services

  What is counseling?  To me, counseling is just a conversation.  It is a place where you can come and express your emotions without feeling judged for how you're feeling.  When we meet, we will discuss whatever you feel comfortable discussing.  We will explore problem areas in your life and work towards practical solutions to improve your mood and quality of life.

Individual Counseling

I offer individual counseling services to adults and adolescents in need of mental health services.  Counseling services are culturally and spiritually sensitive, specializing in depression, anxiety, and trauma recovery.  I also work with clients struggling with interpersonal conflicts due to Borderline Personality Disorder and life adjustment issues.

Some issues you may want help with may include:
Career change               Family discord
Domestic violence          Grief and loss
Stress management       Parenting issues
Mood swings                 Anger and aggression

I provide a very safe and confidential therapy environment where we will work towards decreasing symptoms while increasing your quality of life.  I  offer a free initial phone consultation to briefly explore your treatment needs.  Please contact me for a consultation and to schedule an initial session.


Group Counseling
I also offer group counseling.  Groups can be billed on insurance and are also fee-for-service and require a registration fee.  Topics include:

4 Week Women's Self Exploration Group

Teen Emotion Regulation Group

Payment Options

  There are a few options for payment.  We can discuss which option is a best fit for you during your free telephone consultation.

Fee-for-Service or Private Pay
This is when you pay cash for individual counseling sessions.  I believe in people having access to the help they need so I do offer a sliding scale.  People often choose this option even if they have insurance because the prefer the confidentiality.  Insurance required that there is a diagnosis and do annual chart reviews.  Being a private pay client ensures no one will have access to your chart and does not require that you are labelled with a diagnosis.
