PHILOSOPHY & COUNSELING SERVICES
We all struggle with life and life’s uncertainties. It can be helpful to talk with a licensed mental health professional during this time. As a licensed therapist, I utilize a multi-faceted approach to treatment that includes various types of therapeutic interventions including cognitive-behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), strength-based person-first, accelerated resolution therapy (ART) and a reality-based psychodynamic style that is directive and at times may require effort and work outside of the counseling session. All of my therapy services will be provided in an ethical and professional manner. Although I cannot guarantee the end result of our working together, I am certain we will work together to find the best possible outcome.
Counseling is a collaboration between you and me for the purpose of addressing personal, relational, and mental health issues. I'm an individual therapist who will provide you with a safe and confidential space to open up, share and discover your true self. As your counselor, I will help to encourage personal development and self-growth while supporting you on your journey to be the best possible you that you can and deserve, to be. Together we will discover what behavioral changes are needed to bolster positive changes in your life. We will explore new ways to alleviate unnecessary stressors and concerns in your life that will lead to positive change and the development of previously unrecognized coping strategies. I will make suggestions for outside reading and/or make referrals to other mental healthcare professionals if needed. Sessions last between 53-60 minutes and are usually scheduled once a week at the onset of therapy and can change to bi-weekly as you develop new skills to negotiate your life.
It is important that you know that insurance companies require that I diagnose your mental condition and indicate that you have an ‘illness’ before they will agree to reimburse you for treatment; at this time that is not an issue. However, in the event a diagnosis is required, I will inform you of the diagnosis plan to state on the receipt for services. Any diagnosis made will become a part of your permanent insurance and medical record. Please sign and date this form confirming that you understand and accept its contents.
