Before You Start Therapy With Me You Need To Know...
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. This picture is of me when I was at my most depressed and did not realize it. We all wear a mask.
You are depressed because there is an area of your life that you feel hopeless in. Depression is not caused by a chemical imbalance, there is an imbalance in some area of your life.
I help by shifting your focus from your subjective feeling of depression to an objective view of your situation. Whether it is a person, place, thing or idea that is influencing you, there is something going on in your life that is the cause of your depressive state. Situational Therapy is about identifying it.
There are changes that must be made in your life and not all of them have to do with your thoughts which is why CBT is so useless. I will help coach you through things to do and say in order to influence your depressive situations. Depression is NOT your fault.
I require all potential clients to schedule a free 30-minute consultation with me. You may ask me any questions you have for me as your potential therapist and I will ask questions to make sure we are a good fit. My hourly rate is $350 per hour. I provide financial assistance to those who qualify. You may use your insurance but you must pay me upfront and submit your own claims.
