Most anxiety, depression and addiction are related to underlying trauma and/or childhood relationships. Many sexual issues are as well. What I love about Somatic Experiencing is that it allows me to treat the trauma without forcing you to go over every detail of what happened.
I can see huge permanent changes in my sister from the therapy – she has lost that chip on her shoulder that she carried pretty much since toddler-hood. She no longer gets unreasonably angry or overreacts. In fact, about six months ago, she said that when someone says something that would have put her into a rage in the past, she said, “Now, I just puzzle over it.” How cool is that!?
We start with an intake interview that lasts 50 minutes.
I have a master's degree in counseling, 15 years experience in the field and several years of post-graduate training in attachment, depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationships.
My standard price is $150 per session. I do allow for a reduced rate for up to two clients at any given time. Feel free to inquire regarding whether there are discounts available.
I chose to become a therapist because therapy was deeply helpful to me and I wanted to offers others the same experience.
I have extensive experience with PTSD, trauma, anxiety and depression. I’m also quite effective with people struggling in relationships.
Hire a specialist. When we finished graduate school therapists are generalist. Find someone with postgraduate training in the area that you’re looking for help in.
Also, remember that insurance companies don’t pay very well. Therapists with more experience will often choose not to work with insurance companies. Although your out of pocket with cash pay clinician might be more upfront, there’s a good chance that your issue will resolve more quickly.
