Your path is getting clearer! Keep going!
Where do I start? Anne is a breathe of fresh air! I have been in therapy with others (for YEARS), and have yet to meet someone like Anne. She is incredibly responsive, down-to-earth, and actually gives me hope that "everything will work out". (I didn't experience any anxiety when meeting her, as I usually do with my current therapist). She explained her methods thoroughly and she just seems like a fit for "us"! I left feeling encouraged and calm. I looking forward to this journey.Sep 18, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The price is $80 for individuals or couples. This includes a free 10-15 minute phone introduction session. I am considered an out of network provider for insurance carriers and many of my insured clients submit their receipts for reimbursement. When you seek counseling or therapy, you are making an investment in your long-term mental health. I have offices in North Kansas City, MO and Overland Park, KS.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?After the consultation, the client and I discuss what their life looks like currently and how they envision it. We decide on goals and from there we plan out attainable, realistic steps and try to identify any possible pitfalls. As the process continues, we continue to move forward on the steps and evaluate them as we go. While it’s important to know our background and history, the majority of our time together is typically working on mindfulness, changing habits, communication, trust issues, coping skills, understanding empathy, intimacy issues, parenting, self-esteem/confidence, conflict resolution and more.
