Frequently asked questions

How do I make an appointment?

Email is the best way to connect with me.  When I receive your email I can answer any questions by email or with a free 15 minute phone consultation.  After we schedule our first appointment we will attempt to set a time that works for both of us and meet this time consistently each week.

Is counseling confidential?

What you say in counseling is confidential and what we discuss stays between us.  However, there are a few exceptions to this, which I will discuss in our first meeting.

Do you offer in person and telehealth sessions.

I offer in person sessions, telehealth sessions, or a mixture of both based on preference.  My office is in Golden Valley off of highway 55 and 169.

How does online counseling work?

Online counseling is similar to in-person counseling.  Benefits are that you can do it from a private space in your home.  We set a meeting time and then meet with the zoom application.  Zoom is free and has no cost to you.

How many sessions will I need?

Following the intake appointment, we will plan for 6 sessions.  After the 6th session we will assess for intensity of symptoms and predict the timeline for therapy.

Do you offer sliding scale rates?

I offer a sliding scale rate that is income dependent.  I offer 2 sliding scale appointments at each range per week. Sliding scale rates are as follows:

A household income under $50,000 is $75 per session. (waitlist currently)

A Household income ranging from $50,000 - $75,000 is $100 per session. (1 available opening)

A household income ranging from $75,000 - $100,000 is $125 per session. (1 available opening)

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the pit from pole to pole, 

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud. 

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed. 

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade, 

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find me, unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate, 

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

Invictus (unconquerable)
