Areas of Practice
Play therapy For Children
Play therapy for children is a unique technique that understands children do not always have the language skills or social skills to express their emotions or deal with difficult situations. Play therapy builds on the normal communication style and learning process of a child so that he or she can begin the healing process.
Being a part of a family unit is not always easy. There are times when a family may need a third party counselor to come in and mediate discussions. This can be helpful during times of conflict and confusion to bring peace and understanding back to the home.
Individual therapy FOR TEENS AND ADULTS
Individual counseling allows an adult or teenager to work through challenging feelings, thoughts or situations in a safe, caring and confidential environment.
Groups allow collaboration and growth alongside similar individuals. Groups offered include Social Skills, School Readiness, and Dealing with Transition to assist your children in acquiring and practicing effective tools for use in their everyday activities.
Fees, Cancellations, and Insurance
The standard fee for counseling is $135.00 per 50 minute session unless otherwise agreed upon. I have the right to withhold further counseling if you do not financially meet the obligation of payment as cited above. As returned checks create an administrative cost, there will be a $15.00 fee for any returned check.
Our Master's Level Counseling Graduate Student may be available for a reduced fee rate.
In the event you are unable to keep an appointment, 24 hour advance notice of your cancellation is required. Except for emergencies such as illness or an accident, you will be charged full fee for a "no show" or for a cancellation without a 24 hour notice.
When a client is a minor, counseling fees are the responsibility of the parent/ parents or legal guardian. If minor attends session alone, payment must be sent with them or we must have a credit card on file.
I do not verify insurance coverage, file insurance claims nor receive insurance payments, but will provide appropriate documentation in order to self-file with your insurance company. Clients are responsible for verifying their coverage and eligibility.
