SERVICES & RATES
Do you spend your time wishing life could be different but don’t know what keeps you stuck in place? Does your past keep getting in the way of your present? Do you know where you want to be but aren’t sure how to get there? I can help. I collaborate with my clients to work through the past and find solutions for the future.
It is my role as your counselor to help you unpack your problems and get to the deeper issues that keep you experiencing suffering, and then to help you resolve those issues so you can begin living life the way you desire. It is my hope that the skills you learn in session will be ones that you will be able to use far beyond our time together.
Whether you are struggling with long-term symptoms or you have only recently been experiencing indicators that you might need counseling services, I am here to support and guide you through your journey. It is important to know that you do not have to deal with your problems alone! I work with adults and see clients for many different types of issues that include:
Veterans, Law-Enforcement, First Responders & Their Families
As a veteran, veteran spouse, and veteran therapist I know it can be difficult to share about service-related experiences with the ones you love. Perhaps one of the major difficulties for those in service jobs is that their problems are often related to the every day duties of their jobs, and therefore their experiences are not always treated as outside of what an individual should experience. Often these experiences are ones that you don’t talk about with your peers, and would not wish to inflict on your loved ones. However, the inability to talk about and process these experiences can have serious negative impacts on service members and their families. While I am trained in several trauma therapy techniques, I am flexible to work through your story in whatever way feels best for you. Just know that you have a safe place to tell your story without judgement.
What makes Guidestar Counseling special? I only take a limited number of clients. This allows me to devote more energy to their treatment, provide flexible scheduling options, and be available to my clients when they are in need.
I offer a 15-25 minute consult, free of charge, to those interested in starting counseling services with me. The counseling relationship is deeply personal, and to do deeper levels of work, comfort and trust are critical. A consult allows you to interact with me to identify if I am the person with whom you want to share your therapuetic journey.
Guidestar is not currently accepting insurance. My standard rate is $125 per 50-minute session. I hold a limited number of slots for sliding scale clients. Sliding scale means clients who can demonstrate that they cannot afford my full fee will be offered services at a reduced rate. Reduced fee spots are limited and there may be a wait for a reduced fee slot.
