Counseling can provide a variety of benefits for people. The first session can ensure more clarity on how it can be helpful to you.
A session typically lasts 45-50 minutes but a longer session may be arranged. Research shows it is most beneficial for clients to come in on a weekly basis, but often every other week or even twice a week might be more helpful.
My fees are $185 for a 45-50 minute individual session and $275 for 75-80 minute sessions. Couples and family sessions are $210. I do provide a sliding scale. Please contact me for information regarding this.
As a Ph.D. and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I do not prescribe medication. If you believe you are in need of medication together as a team we can discuss options and I can provide you with names of doctors who may be of help to you.
My office is located on the corner of 42nd and Guadalupe. A little yellow house across the street from Hyde Park Gym. If there is no available street parking, you can park in the gym parking lot. There is a map located on the Contact page.
