During our initial contact we will consult about the concerns that brought you in and explore if solution-oriented therapy will best meet your needs. Our contract for work will be unique and tailored to you specifically.  I find it most beneficial to fit the  therapeutic model to the client and not the other way around.  If we decide that weekly traditional psychotherapy is in your best interest, I will do my best to refer you to an appropriate provider.

Solution-oriented therapy is a time limited approach focusing on specific goals and objectives.    Following the initial consultation, we will set up a work schedule with a beginning, middle and end date lasting anywhere from 1-6 months.  Our scheduled time together can be flexible as to place and time spent.  Work can be in-person, or remote based.  At the end of our engagement, we will review progress and determine next steps.

Initial Consultation:  $250.00
Hourly rate:  $150

Exceptions include:

  • Suspected child abuse or dependant adult or elder abuse, for which I am required by law to report this to the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • If a client is threatening serious bodily harm to another person(s), I must notify the police and inform the intended victim.
  • If a client intends to harm himself or herself, I will make every effort to enlist their cooperation in insuring their safety.
