Has talk therapy failed to get you where you need to go? Do you need your therapist to do more than ask you “What do you want to talk about today?” Do you need to get to the core of your problem?
I want you to know that you do not have to allow your emotions and reactions to control, limit or ruin your life. If you are willing to do some hard emotional work and with the right help, you can regain control over your emotions and confidently overcome your most difficult issues, memories and situations.

Sometimes Talk Therapy Is Just Not Enough
95% of therapists practice some form of talk therapy, I am one of the 5% that gives you another choice.
Talk therapy works from the top down, training you to use your thinking mind to control your emotional mind. While this model works for many problems, it falls apart if you have strong emotional reactions because strong emotions pull the plug on your thinking mind.
I do the exact opposite – I work from the bottom up, helping you to identify and eliminate the root causes of your reactions to help you to:
-heal your emotional wounds,
-eliminate your emotional baggage and
-break through your emotional blocks
Once you find and eliminate the root causes of your emotional reactions you won’t be able to get yourself upset about them even when you try. Imagine how great it will feel when you don’t have to worry about getting triggered anymore, when you can just confidently do what you have always known you could and should do.
Sometimes 45-Minutes Is Just Not Enough
Talk therapy is built around the 45-minutes-once-a-week-for-a-year model.
I specialize in helping you prevent strong emotional reactions from ruining your life, your child’s life or your marriage. Finding and eliminating the root cause of strong reactions usually requires:
Having enough time to get to the emotional core of your problems also allows you to get to the other side of your issues faster:
One 90-minute session = Up to a month of regular counseling
One 3-hour session = Up to 3 months of regular counseling
So even if your problems have been around forever, counseling doesn’t have to take forever.
Since most insurance plans are designed to cover traditional 45-minutes-per-week-for-a-year counseling, I am considered to be an ‘out-or-network” provider. If your plan allows you to go ‘out-of-network,” part of my fee may be covered. Please check your coverage carefully by asking the following questions:
Do I have mental health insurance benefits?
Does my plan allow me to go “out-of-network”
What is my deductible and has it been met?
How many sessions per year does my health insurance cover?
Does my plan allow me to have more than one 45-minute session in a day?
What is the coverage amount per therapy session?
Is approval required from my primary care physician?
By the end of your work with me I want you to be able to achieve your own PERSONAL MINOR MIRACLE, a concrete achievement that you know is impossible for you to do now and that will be proof that you have overcome your problem. The cost of your complete treatment program, focused on achieving your personal minor miracle, will typically range from $2,142-$9,996.
