Counseling

Are you chronically disappointed? Dissatisfied with your job or relationship? Bored with your life? Feeling that you are not reaching your potential? Worried all the time about getting it all done or being good enough? Is fear holding you back from being your best self and having all you want in life? Are you feeling inadequate and self-critical? Are you wondering why am I alive? What is the purpose of my life? What does my life mean? Are you wanting a passionate and purpose-filled life?

Are you stressed by these questions? You are in good company. Many people struggle in these areas and all of us face them. The good news is, you are not “sick” and you do not need a “diagnosis”. The best news is, I can help you empower yourself to choose and create an exquisite life! You may be interested in regular Counseling sessions, incorporating Energy Psychology, or Intuitive Reiki sessions to address these issues.

Alternatively, you may be interested in Mentoring rather than counseling if you are wanting to focus on personal or spiritual development. See below for more information.

Counseling

Counseling is primarily “talk therapy” where we’ll discuss the issues in your life and then explore new ways of perceiving and responding to those issues. I will introduce energetic techniques like an Energy Psychology process, Tapping (EFT), or Reiki as they seem appropriate for you and the issues you are exploring. I do not use energy techniques with every counseling client and not all clients are interested in those techniques.

We will look at what is happening in your present life and your habits of thought, emotional reactions, and behaviors. We’ll address the past as needed. Primarily, I believe that we need help letting go of attachments to the past which contribute to suffering in the present. We always have the power to choose new responses in the present but it requires a commitment to practicing awareness of your mind-body in the present moment. We’ll also work on learning to use your mind for good rather than to rehash unpleasant past events. The mind is a powerful healing ally if used to its potential. Thoughts literally affect how our genes are expressed.

60-minute Sessions

Counseling sessions can be billed to your insurance. If I am on your insurance panel, I will bill for you and you’ll be responsible only for your copay/deductible. If I am out-of your network, you will need to pay at the time of service and then bill your insurance for reimbursement. Most plans will reimburse you something for out-of-network providers.

Note about insurance: If you are wanting to use your insurance, I will need to provide them with a diagnosis. It is required for billing and they may require proof of medical necessity. You also need to know that a mental health diagnosis can impact your ability to be considered for certain jobs or to obtain a security clearance. Your insurance company has access to all of your records.

90-minute Sessions

These sessions typically are not covered by insurance and so I do not bill insurance for these sessions. You can pay at the time of service and bill your insurance for reimbursement if you would like 90-minute sessions.

Rates

60 minute session (Counseling, Energy Psychology, Reiki, Mentoring) — $145.

Scheduling

Click the “Book Now” button below. It will take you to my calendar where you can choose a time that works for you. If you have a problem finding a time, email me through the contact page and we’ll see if we can find a solution.

If you are a first-time client, I will connect with you via phone so we can get a sense of whether I am the best provider for your needs.

Note about scheduling: The system will ask you to hold your appointment with a credit card. You will not be charged until the time of service. If you are using insurance for a counseling session, you will be responsible for your copay/coinsurance or deductible at the time of service.

Congratulations on taking steps toward greater health & well-being.
