As a professional mental health clinician, I respect and appreciate how important it is for you, your partner, and/or your family to work with a therapist or counselor with whom you have a high level of trust and confidence.

In order to help you find the therapist or counselor who is right for you, I offer a free, initial consultation to all potential new clients. This is a time for you, your partner, and/or your family to meet with me in a non-therapeutic, yet professional way so that you can ask any questions you have on your mind. It is also an opportunity for you to experience a little bit of my unique style of working and relating with you.

The initial consultation usually lasts between 30 minutes and one hour. Some of the most common questions potential new clients ask include:
  • What is your education and training?
  • What is your therapeutic approach or theoretical orientation?
  • Will you mostly listen or do you take a more active approach?
  • How do you feel about medications?
  • Will you recommend that I start taking medications?
  • Are you comfortable working with _______________ (an issue)?
  • Have you ever worked with this kind of issue before?
  • What kind of outcomes or results have you had with this kind of issue before?
  • What kind of insurance do you take?
At the end of the consultation you will be given an information packet to take home with you so that you can review what was discussed in the consultation and make a final decision. If you choose to work with me, you can then call to set up your first appointment. You could also ask for a referral to an outside organization or therapist if I am not able to meet your needs. I am committed to helping you find the right therapist for you!

Counseling and psychotherapy is an investment in you. The therapeutic goals, duration of treatment, and other important factors associated with your therapy are things that are determined by the two os us.  For that reason I only accept private pay clients and some third party payment sources such as Victim Compensation. Due to the significant amount of work I contribute to the community via free or reduced fee supervision, consultation, training, and other volunteer work, I do not offer reduced fee therapy services, though I am happy to recommend you to one of my supervisees, consultees, or students if you are interested in receiving reduced fee services.
