Counseling, whether individual or marriage, is a professional relationship. It's one where you get all of me - my training, skill and knowledge, as well as who I am as a person - present with you. The therapeutic relationship requires a good fit personally; so while I strive to meet all clients where they're at and walk with them in their stories, I'm also aware of the need for safety, sympathy and understanding that makes the counseling space one where a client can step into their full purpose. If we're not a fit, I work with several area therapists that I can refer you to.
Currently, my rate is $125 50 for a 50-minute session. At times, longer sessions are needed to either deal with the complexities of an issue or give space to work. In those circumstances, we can discuss the benefit of 80-minute to 110-minute sessions billed at $185 and $250 respectively.
At this time, I do not accept insurance, and I am not listed on any insurance panels. You may contact your insurance company directly to ask what (if any) out-of-network mental health coverage you have. I can provide a coded invoice for reimbursement for of out-of-pocket payments they cover.
"Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates elements from many different treatment approaches." (Information from the EMDR International Association website.)
I am EMDR trained and qualified as a therapist. EMDR has been shown to address not only large significant traumas and PTSD but can also provide significant relief in areas of anxiety, stress, phobias, etc. Please read through the resources in the following links for more information on this therapy.

If you have further questions about EMDR or how it might be beneficial for you, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd be happy to discuss it with you.
