Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Do I Need Counseling?

You might be considering counseling, but wonder if that means you are weak, crazy, or something worse.  You might wonder why you can’t just work on it yourself.  The reality is that most people can benefit from the objective, confidential, and safe environment that a counselor can offer.  Clients often describe a feeling of being “stuck” or exhausted from dealing with problems in the same old way.   You might feel that same sense of being stuck in a struggling relationship, with a dissatisfying career, with your up and down moods or in a destructive pattern of behavior. 

I can offer an objective and caring perspective, working with your strengths, to help you develop a greater self-awareness, a different way to interact in your relationships, and a renewed sense of hope as you constructively work toward change in your life.   

What happens in the first session?
The first session is about getting comfortable with each other.  I will ask you about the issues that brought you into my office and the ways you’ve coped or dealt with these issues.  I might ask about your personal history and your perspectives on what you believe is happening in your life.  You can share what you are comfortable sharing.  I will give feedback toward the end of the session and we might set goals for future sessions.   
Can counseling really work?
Yes!  Almost all counseling is based on the development of a trusting and open relationship between the client and the counselor.  We work together to make an honest exploration of feelings, needs, and concerns.  Your part will be to openly participate in session, to do assigned homework (when applicable), and to make an effort to try new solutions to old problems.  This is a joint effort.  With openness, honesty, and hard work, counseling can be tremendously helpful.   
Do you take insurance?
I don’t directly take insurance, but have some clients who are able to submit my online receipts to their insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement.  You would have to check with your insurance company to see what they offer for out-of-network psychotherapy.  My convenient online portal gives you open access to print your own receipts.   
Are you a Christian Counselor?
I’m a Christian and I’m a family counselor.  I practice from the worldview that we have a loving God who can work within us to bring healing, meaning, and purpose and this is deeply important to me.  As a couples therapist, I will work hard to advocate for healing, repair and change within the marriage.  For individual clients who value spirituality, I’m open to including spiritual direction and prayer when needed.  For clients of other religious and spiritual backgrounds, I will welcome you and respect your worldview and beliefs.
