What do you charge?
My rates vary depending on the service you’re wanting. For individuals, the rate starts at $175 per hour with an initial consultation fee of $250. For couples, my rate is $250 for 80 minutes with an initial consultation fee of $325.
How often do you meet for therapy?
This depends on the individual and uniqueness of why you’re coming in. Most clients experience the most benefit coming on a weekly basis in the beginning (6-12 sessions) and other’s choose to come bi-monthly. My recommendation is always weekly initially so we can gain momentum.
How long does therapy typically last?
This all depends on the uniqueness of your situation. In our initial work together, my goal is to get a good grasp on where you are and what your goals are to help facilitate a timeline that you feel comfortable with. As with anything, what you put into therapy determines what you get out of it and how long it can take. A lot of my clients disclose feeling relief during our first few weeks meeting together and for those that are ready for changes, they tend to notice strong shifts within the first few months, if not weeks.
Who can come to therapy?
Anyone. And, the frame of our work is determined early on so that anyone involved in the therapeutic process feel supported. Therapy is highly beneficial for any type of relationship, especially those that are experiencing strong miscommunication challenges and caught in toxic patterns that continue to cause pain and frustration.
Where are you located?
My office is centrally located in The Heights in Houston, TX. We are at the corner of Shepard and 18th street in a beautiful bungalow called, Heights Haven.
I want to do couples therapy and my partner won’t come with me, what do I do?
This is a great question. If you’re wanting to do couples therapy and your partner is not wanting to come, my suggestion is to focus on your own therapy first and continue to ask your partner to join you when they are ready. If you decide to start with individual sessions with me, I can provide great referrals for your couples work when your partner is ready.
