About Me

I charge a sliding scale fee for counseling sessions that is negotiated at the first session which is free to determine if I can be of assistance, if our styles are congruent and if you feel safe with me. I offer professional clinical services at a reduced sliding scale in return for the privilege of recording our sessions, and using them as confidential training demonstrations of clinical work with advanced students in the graduate counseling program. In these recordings, client identity is protected. Clients concerned about these recordings or their usage may inquire at any time in counseling, or withdraw permission at any point for such usage.
