Is therapy right for me?

There are many reasons why people come to therapy. Sometimes it is to deal with long-standing feelings of frustration, disappointment, possible anxiety or depression, or relationship difficulties. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one’s life such as a divorce or work transition. Many seek the advice of a therapist as they pursue their own personal exploration and growth. Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help address many types of issues including depression, anxiety, conflict, grief, stress management, body-image issues, and general life transitions. Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of life by taking responsibility, creating greater self-awareness, and working toward change in their life.

Do you do "marriage counseling" with non-married couples?

Yes. Couples who have been living together for more than a few months are dealing with the same challenges as couples who have been through a wedding ceremony.  I consider marriage counseling to be in order for any couple that wants to improve their relationship.

Do you do pre-marriage counseling?

Yes. Couples that are anticipating marriage are wise to consider seeing a counselor.

Can I complete any of the Assessments before my initial session?

Yes. The assessments can be completed prior to the initial session but require counselor feedback on the interpretation of the results.

What can I expect in a therapy session?

Every therapy session is unique and caters to each individual and their specific goals. During therapy sessions it is standard to talk about the primary issues and concerns in your life. It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions. Sometimes individuals who are going through a particularly difficult challenge may request more time per session or more than one session per week. Therapy can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue or longer-term, addressing more complex patterns or ongoing personal growth. There may be times when you are asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records to track certain behaviors. Between sessions it is important to process what has been discussed and integrate it into your life. For therapy to be most effective you must be an active participant, both during and between the sessions.

How It Works

Step 1: Request Appointment

If you or someone you know is considering counseling, the first step is to request an appointment. It is free, quick and completely confidential.

Step 2: Initial Meeting

The first meeting is a great opportunity to meet the counselor and build relationship with them. We will work to schedule a time that is convenient for you within the next week. Meeting with the counselor for the first time can be uncomfortable. We aim to make your first visit comfortable.

Step 3: Weekly Sessions

During the first meeting, you and your counselor will set up weekly, or otherwise regularly scheduled time to meet together. It is during these time that your counselor will begin to help guide you toward personal and relational wholeness.

What Does it Cost?

The cost of counseling is assessed at the initial visit. It is our goal to provide help regardless of financial circumstances. The initial consultation is 30 mins and is free.

Understanding counseling, insurance, and payment can be confusing. We don’t directly bill your insurance for a number of reason. Mostly it is because we want you to have complete control over your records. We’d love to walk you through the process of getting counseling started.
