What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $125 for a standard 50 minute session. I offer sliding scale to clients who may need it, either in the short term or for the duration of our work together.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I offer a free 30 minute consultation, in person or by phone/email, to see if we would be a good fit. During that time I answer any questions that a client or clients may have. I also get a history of the presenting issue and establish what goals the client would like to achieve.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have 10 full time years of college, graduate, and post-graduate training as a counselor. I hold a Master's degree in counseling psychology, with a focus in Somatics, and a certification and license in Marriage and Family Therapy.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work most often with couples experiencing stress, getting couples back to communication and relational satisfaction in a moderated and safe space. I also work with individuals suffering anxiety or depression, utilizing a mind-body lens and simple tools for achieving health.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look for someone who fits with your personal vision of self growth as well as someone who is well educated and qualified. Take the time to find a therapist that feels like a good match. Counseling is a very personal process and meeting in person can be a helpful way to decide whether a therapist is right for you.
