What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I have new clients fill out an intake form and some evaluations. I review that with them, explain to them how I work and the tools used and then we decide on a starting point to begin doing the healing work.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am required to have 12 CEUs every 2 years to maintain my DCEP certification. I usually do this by attending a conference annually to learn about new research, techniques and applications of the techniques.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
My standard fee is $100/hour long session; a full hour compared to other therapists. I also offer pre-paid discounts for 3 or 6 sessions, and a reduced fee for students and veterans. Special consideration is given to veterans with PTSD.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with clients with fears, phobias, anxieties, depression, relationships and relationship issues, and PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) of any origin. This includes combat, rape, domestic abuse, childhood sexual assault and more.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I believe in there has to be a good match between the counselor and the client. This means that personal interaction is good, communication is good, intention is good and that the client has the willingness to go deep into their issue to create the healing they want.
