Fees & FAQ


general faq

Yes! Please contact me to set up a free 15 minute consultation.  

At the start of therapy, I most commonly see clients on a weekly basis.


I have found that it is most helpful for clients to begin with weekly or biweekly counseling appointments because it allows for a client to  begin seeing growth without feeling like they are starting over at each visit.  However, I understand circumstances may dictate otherwise.  Ultimately, you get to decide.


During our initial consultation and the first few sessions, we will determine together what will work best for you.

I believe that therapy is great AND it shouldn’t have to last forever.   


Everyone’s circumstances are unique to them and the length of time therapy can take to allow you to accomplish your goals depends on many factors.  In general, it can take a few months to a few years. 


My goal is for us to work hard, work smart, and work myself out of a job.  I want to empower you to make changes in your life that decrease suffering, increase awareness and assist you in creating a life that aligns with your values, goals, hopes, and dreams.  

During our first session, we will talk a little more about what brought you in, and spend the first session or two determining the therapy goals together. I will also be very open and transparent about making sure you feel comfortable. If, at any time, you do not feel comfortable or that I am not the best fit, I will gladly help connect you with another therapist or therapists that may be better suited for you.

Let’s face it, sometimes things come up!  If you need to cancel your appointment, I respectfully request 24-hour notice. Missed appointments or appointments cancelled without 24-hour notice will be charged the regular fee for service.

Yep!  I sure do!  I provide online counseling for people living in the state of Indiana. I use a secure video system that is HIPPA compliant.  

I will work with you to find the best time for us both.  My current availability shifts frequently so please reach out to me via email or the phone if you would like to talk about beginning counseling or scheduling an appointment.

There’s no one “right” way to do therapy, but here are some ideas for you to consider. To the extent you can attempt do many of these things, often (NOT ALWAYS… no point in making perfect the enemy of the good) you’re more likely to benefit from counseling:


  • Be as open and honest as you can about your thoughts and feelings. Accept that you may feel uncomfortable at first, and that’s OK. I much prefer “I really don’t want to talk about that right now” to an untruth or denial.
  • Know that nothing is off limits. Talk about anything: sex, dreams, fantasies, fears, anger, religion, family members, co-workers, politics, resentments, drugs, anything. (Don’t worry about dropping the F bomb, either. I think I may have dropped it once or twice {x100} in my life.)
  • Speaking of religion if your religious/spiritual beliefs matter to you, they matter to me.  If you have had negative experiences with religion or have no beliefs at all, I will never attempt to influence you to believe one way or another.  Ultimately, I want you to talk about whatever is important in your life.
  • Let me know if I’m doing or saying something that isn’t working for you. Especially let me know if I’ve angered you in some way. I’m here to help and it is super helpful to let me know when you disagree, feel angry or are frustrated. 
  • Schedule sessions consistently (once a week if possible) for at least two or three months to give yourself enough time to experience true growth and healing.
  • If there are two or three things you could talk about, start with the topic you most want to avoid. Chances are this is where you’ll experience the most benefit. When we’re comfortable, we’re not growing.


I cannot accept any form of insurance at this time. 

$120 per 60 minute session (individual clients &couples)
$180 per 90 minute session (intake appointment, couples, families)

Clients may pay with their Health Savings Account (HSA), check, cash, or credit card.  Payments are due at the end of the session.

couples faq

Yep! I love counseling couples! Please contact me to set up a free 20 minute consultation. 

Couples therapy and marriage counseling are beneficial at any stage of the relationship, however, the sooner, the better if your goal is to improve your relationship or build a strong foundation.


Some couples start couples counseling at the beginning of a relationship or before getting married (pre-marital counseling) to get support build a solid foundation for their relationship.

My therapeutic approach with couples is informed mainly by the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT incorporates the latest research in neuroscience and attachment theory.   Both are rigorously researched modalities for couples therapy.

Intensives are “marathon” sessions that amplify and accelerate current therapeutic work.  Intensives allow couples to dive deeply into their concerns and issues without the frustration of the “start and stop” feeling of weekly sessions.


It’s also effective for partners in crisis who don’t have find that weekly therapy visits are sufficient.


They are scheduled in a 3-hour format and designed to provide a highly focused therapeutic experience in a private and safe environment, allowing couples the time and space to dive deeply into their most challenging issues, along with the intensity needed to bring about the change in a shorter period of time. 

co-parent couseling faq

Separation doesn’t delete a family.  Nor is there a roadmap for how to ensure parents part peacefully!


Co-parent counseling helps parents to create a roadmap.  We discuss topics such as:

  • Explaining separation in (age appropriate) child-centered language
  • Answering your child’s difficult questions and what to share based on the child’s developmental stage
  • Helping your children name and navigate their emotions
  • Building a mutually respectful co-parenting relationship 
  • Creating a secure home base in a two-home family
  • Taking care of self during the challenging transition
  • Creating a parenting schedule that works
  • Communication protocols 

Differences in parenting style, as well as disagreements over child-related decisions, often predate a parental separation.  Those differences don’t necessarily decrease when parents divorce or decide to separate.  In fact, when families with children decide to live separately they often work even harder to co-parent than when they lived in the same home. 


I work with parents to think through aspects of a separation that they may not have considered.  Proactively coming together and constructing a written plan creates more predictability and stability for their children during the transition into two parent households.    It also helps parents to be more confident guides for their children. 

Yes! While your intimate partnership ended,  it does not end your children’s family.    It’s never too late to become a stronger, happier, and healthier {two-residential} family for your children.
