You can call me directly at 318-732-7489 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also click the button below to schedule immediately. I give a free 30-minute initial consultation. That way you can see what therapy is like before you invest. I have two office locations to choose from 4511 Densmore Avenue North and 3301 Burke Avenue North. I look forward to hearing from you!
Conventional wisdom treats anxiety disorders with a combination of medicine as well as cognitive-behavioral therapy. Medication takes care of the more distressing symptoms but does nothing to prevent you from getting in anxiety-producing situations. Conventional therapy is focused on helping you resolve past traumas and understanding "why" it is you do the things you do. Situational Therapy is focused on identifying precisely the type of situations that cause you the most anxiety and provide you with specific tools and instruction to adjust and react differently to those situations.
I offer financial scholarships where I will subsidize up to 70% of the cost of therapy for those in financially difficult situations. To qualify you must attend an initial consultation and verbally request a scholarship My hourly rate is $200 per hour. I do not submit claims on your behalf, but I will take care of the paperwork for you to submit your own insurance claims.
