Counseling St. Joseph counseling st joseph counseling saint joseph
My aim is to focus on your priorities for counseling, within an environment of compassion and respect. My approach is person-centered, collaborative, and empowering. Seeking therapy requires strength and the courage to be vulnerable, which I recognize, appreciate, and admire in my clients.
I have over 20 years of experience in the field of social work, approximately half of which has been doing mental health therapy with children, adolescents, and adults. I have worked extensively with adolescents and adults with concerns related to attachment wounds and losses, trauma, and emotional regulation. I utilize a blend of therapies grounded in attachment and developmental theory; cognitive therapy, ego-state therapy, and DBT; as well as expressive and non-directive child-centered play therapy. My style of working with couples is to focus on communication skills and enhancing the capacity for understanding, empathy, and validation.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and pets. I especially enjoy the experience of supporting my children in their learning and growth. My hobbies include singing, reading, and cooking. Special interests of mine include autism, post-traumatic stress, attention-deficit disorder, OCD, and depression.
FEES & PAYMENT OPTIONS
Please call for rates: 816.396.6002
FEE FOR SERVICE
Fee-for-service therapy has the highest level of security and confidentiality, as only a judge may request my client records via a subpoena. Insurance companies are not involved, thus your mental health diagnosis will not become a part of your medical record and stays only between you and me. This choice protects you from acquiring a pre-existing behavioral health condition on your medical record.
I am currently cash pay only; however, I am willing to negotiate fees.
I accept cash, checks and credit cards. Payment must be made at the time of service.
Because the appointment time is reserved for you, if you must cancel your appointment, it is important for you to do so at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time. Late cancellations are subject to the full fee of the session.
