Individual Short Term Counseling
I use a Solution Focused brief counseling approach designed for one or two specific goals involving a current life challenge. Client’s using their Employee Assistance Program service may benefit from this type of approach. Sessions range from 1 – 8 sessions and therapy has a specific end date that the client determines at the beginning of the counseling relationship.
Individual Counseling Program Package
This is a specific counseling package designed for those who want a clear beginning, middle and end to therapy and are seeking a more educational approach. Counseling sessions include solution focused and mindfulness based practices, brief counseling process, handouts, tips, tools and resources. This is a package for people who are proactive, highly motivated, and self directed. Sessions focus on present day challenges and less on issues of the past and family of origin. This package includes a outline of topics that will be covered during the course. Duration is for approx. 3 months with weekly sessions. Client’s who are self paying may benefit from this package but those with insurance may also benefit depending on coverage.
Individual Longer Term Counseling
This is depth counseling using mindfulness based psychodynamic supportive counseling interventions that are empowerment and strengths based. During longer term counseling, sessions are focused on current issues and family of origin issues as they relate to the here and now. Together we explore core patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that you determine are being unhelpful in your life. This type of work requires a number of sessions and clients can expect to be in counseling for at least 6 months or more of weekly or every other week sessions depending on the severity of issues, history, symptoms, current patterns of coping, and counseling goals. Clients who are self paying or using insurance (depending on your coverage) may benefit from this type of counseling.
Group Counseling and Workshops
I am in the process of developing SoulCollage® workshops and a Women’s Support group that will focus on midlife issues, women’s trauma and empowerment. Please check back for more information on days and times.
