The primary populations served are individuals and couples with an emphasis on relationships, communication issues and life transitions (marriage, divorce, grief, new job, empty nest etc.) as well as trauma, codependency, depression and anxiety. My approach is eclectic and offers a blend of therapy and life coaching. Added to this are a variety of techniques that illicit change and create emotional balance and empowerment.
Fees for individual and couples counseling are $250 for 60 minutes. When needing to cancel, a 24-hour notice is required or half of the session fee is due. If a “no-show”, meaning the session time has arrived and no cancelation request has been received, the full session fee will be due and charged to the card on file. If no card on file, invoice will be sent and payment will be due immediately upon receipt of invoice. Cash, check and credit cards are acceptable forms of payment.
Your session is always held in confidence. Professional Ethics and Tennessee State Law indicate that confidential information is controlled by the client. This means that, as a general rule, information shared in sessions with a counselor will be held in confidence. There are two exceptions to this general rule. In the case of an emergency where I believe a client is at risk of hurting him/herself or another person, there may be a breach in confidentiality. Tennessee law requires that child and elderly abuse in any form be reported to the Department of Human Services.
BENEFITS AND RISKS OF COUNSELING/COACHING
When we consider making changes in our lives, this typically involves the modification of emotions, attitudes and behaviors. When we do this, we may notice a shift in our empowerment, sense of self, self esteem, etc. and relationships may change. We may even notice our symptoms getting worse before getting better. We as therapists/coaches cannot guarantee a specific outcome; clients are ultimately responsible for their own growth.
As your therapist/coach there may be suggestions to see other practitioners such as a massage therapist, chiropractor, nutritionist, energy healer, acupuncturist, psychiatrist or another practitioner to compliment our sessions. These are simply suggestions and not obligatory, it is ultimately up to you to decide to go or not.
If at any time you are in crisis and unable to reach me in an emergency, please contact the Crisis Help Line at 615-244-7444 or by going to your local emergency room.
If you feel the need to file a complaint, please contact NC Board of LPC’s.
