Services: Psychotherapy, Workshops, and Consultation

Whether it’s psychotherapy, workshops or a consultation it important that my clients feel they have walked away with something they can then use in the real world.  For this reason I make a point of getting to know who I’m speaking with, who my audience is and what their needs are. If I don’t know this then the services I offer are meaningless and it will be very hard to help you, so you can expect me to take the time to get to know your story and your needs.

 

Psychotherapy

The people who see me come from a variety of backgrounds and struggle with many of different issues. In general I find that there are three main groups of people that find their way to my office.

Individuals Who…

  • are curious about themselves
  • find it hard to put emotions into words
  • are going through a life transition, job loss, break-up, new baby, death of a loved one
  • are excited and scared about becoming a parent
  • express their anger in hurtful ways
  • are stressed with the demands of work, relationship and family
  • struggle with asserting their needs and saying NO
  • make bad choices when it comes to life partner
  • find it hard to forgive themselves
  • feel stuck, depressed and or anxious

Couples Who…

  • want to stop fighting and find effective ways to communicate
  • want to parent as partners and not as adversaries
  • need a space to connect, talk and listen to one another
  • find themselves judging each other too much

Groups For…

  • guys who are interested in exploring what it means to be a man in today’s world where gender roles are shifting, expectations are confusing and stereotypes abound
  • fathers who are interested in comparing notes, getting/giving support and learning how to be a dad who is firm yet tender
  • men and women who are interested in exploring themes around: identity, motivation, emotion, family of origin and making healthy choices

Fees

I provide all my clients with a statement at the end of every month which they can then submit to their insurance plan. I am what’s called an “out-of-network provider,” which is reimbursable depending on the kind of coverage you have.  Many of my clients are reimbursed for their out-of-pocket costs. I have a standard rate and I can see people on a sliding scale.  My standard rate can slide as long as we take into consideration your ability to pay and my ability to slide which would require a longer conversation, which I am happy to have.
