Couples and Family
Therapy

Maintaining  healthy, long-term relationships is challenging when faced with life changes, miscommunication, and conflicts. 

It also makes happiness elusive.

When a family member has problems the whole family suffers, especially when it involves a child or adolescent.  Therapy can help the family identify the roots of the problems and guide the family to  solutions.

Couple and Family Therapy helps:  

 Increase communications

  and understanding

 Identify and create solutions to          decrease conflicts, improve         interactions     

 Strengthen bonds          

   

  Adjust together to new

   challenges that arise in life

Play and Art
Therapy

 

Two forms of Play Therapy I use are Expressive Arts Therapy and Sand Play Therapy.  Both allow children and adults to express  symbolically what they find difficult to express verbally.  Children and adolescents often try to describe what is troubling them. They struggle finding the words.  Adults may find words constraining or inadequate.  

 

Play Therapy combined with talk” therapy is a powerful combination to help:

 

 Increase cooperative behavior

 

 Increase self-esteem

 

  Develop independence

 

 Improve school success

 

 Develop confidence. 

4.

Pastoral
Counseling

 

Pastoral Counseling focuses on the healing, growth and the  development of the whole person.  

Incorporating the spiritual component in your life and therapy can help address difficult life situations.

Integration of the psychological   and spiritual perspectives helps address many issues of life: meaning, direction, identity and self worth.

 

Pastoral Counseling helps:

  Generate options and choices           aligned with your values.

 

  Strengthen inner resources

 

  Grow in self awareness

 

 Increase sense of well       

   being and wholeness

Pastoral Counseling meets you where you are, no matter what your spiritual or religious affiliation.


 

The fee per session is $150.  Psychotherapy services are usually covered by insurance or health care accounts. I will provide documentation for reimbursement from insurance because I am an out of network provider. Clients are responsible to pay full fee and you will be responsible for copay and deductibles.  A sliding scale is available based on income and number of dependents; also for those without insurance.  I see clients in my home office.  There is a waiting area for parents and others. 
I will respectfully refer any addiction problems to an addiction specialist
