Let's Talk About It

Maybe this sounds familiar: 

 

Something is troubling you. It could be something specific, or it could be something vague that's nagged at you for some time.  

You've thought about counseling, but--after a lifetime of struggling to convey what you're feeling--you've always hesitated. You’re an intelligent person, you know that; but getting people to understand you is a struggle. Perhaps it’s because you stutter. Maybe it's a communication disorder like Asperger's/autism, or some other type of speech problem. Whatever it is, you deserve to have your feelings heard and understood.

 

It's time that someone hears what you're saying, not how you're saying it: A therapist who will listen without judgment and get at what’s bothering you. As a Licensed Professional Counselor and also a Certified Speech-Language Pathologist, I am uniquely qualified to counsel all communicators.

 

Let's get together and talk. Give yourself a moment to exhale. Settle in. This time is about you, and safety, and finding your peace.

My Story

 

Before I became a licensed professional counselor, I was a speech-language pathologist. During that time, I discovered that I was very connected to my clients' emotional  thoughts about their speech problems. I could feel their pain and I wanted to do everything in my power to help them to feel better. When my best friend died at age 51, I decided that life was too short and that I wanted to pursue my dream of becoming a psychotherapist. I quit my job, sold my house and went back to graduate school. I earned my second Master's degree, this time in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.

On the personal side, my favorite things are camping, hiking, nature, dogs and alternative rock music.

INSURANCE INFO

Leather Wallet

My practice is focused on counseling for adults.

 

I accept payment from HSA accounts, credit cards, checks and cash.  

"Why don't you take insurance?" you might ask.  Insurance companies require me to make a diagnosis.  I don't always think that's necessary.  Then they tell you how many visits you can have.  I think you should decide that.  

If you like, I can give you an insurance superbill so you can file it with your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. Many insurance companies apply this toward your out-of-network deductible. You will need to check with your insurance company to confirm.

If you’re limited in what you can afford, there are options.  We can schedule sessions less frequently, or we can do abbreviated sessions at a lower price.  Many kinds of therapy don’t require weekly visits.
