Work with Me

 No one enjoys a life that just doesn’t work.  People come to counseling usually because they want something in their life to change, for it to just be better.  When we work together, I respect your need for change and I will work with you to find a way to make a difference in your life.

One of the most powerful aspects of counseling is the working relationship that we develop.  I am not interested in being your judge or jury; rather I will help you find workable options for you to make your wanted changes.

Some of my past experiences include:

  •  Parenting Seminars
  • Counseling with parents
  • Adolescent and child counseling
  • Inpatient and outpatient counseling
  • Collaboration with Judges, Police, Juvenile Court System, & Probation officers
  • Special Education Teacher for more than 15 years
  • Hospital Psychiatric Social Worker on a psychiatric unit
  • Emergency Room Psychiatric Social Worker
  • Issues related to parenting, step- parenting, parent relationship
  • Improving adolescent and parent relationships
  • Guidance in school-related issues (behavior, special education, special needs students, defiance issues, and bullying)
  • Improving anger management with both adults and children
  • Offering coping skills and guidance for stress-related issues
  • Depression in parents or adolescents
  • Coping with loss

FEES: My rates are $90.00 per 50 minute session, with the first session rate of $130.00. I do have a sliding scale fee; please call for availability. I do take some insurance plans, please call so that we can discuss your insurance coverage.

I know that it can be difficult deciding upon a therapist for help.  Therefore, I am offering a free, brief initial 15 minute phone consultation to help you in considering if I am the right therapist for you.
