Counseling Services

In addition to traditional psychotherapeutic counseling services, I also offer non-medical counseling and consultation for adults (commonly referred to as coaching), a more affordable alternative to mental health counseling.  This option is particularly beneficial under the following circumstances:  You are not diagnosed with a (reimbursable) mental health condition;  you do not have any mental health insurance coverage; you are not seeking traditional psychotherapy services.  Non-medical counseling focuses on present circumstances and is a more brief, solution-focused and time-specific goal-oriented approach.  If you are interested in this service, please call for session fees. Please keep in mind that if you plan to utilize health insurance then there has to be a documented medical need which will include an initial evaluation and mental health diagnosis.
