Frequently Asked Questions
What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge by the session NOT the hour. Sessions last until the client feels better than they did when they first walked in.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to speak separately to all parties involved before our first session. Clients feel most comfortable if they're not walking in cold.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In addition to my degree in Counseling Psychology and my life coach certification, I am trained in the"Gottman Method." Dr. Gottman and his wife are the leaders in the industry for Marriage and Relationship counseling.
How did you get started doing this type of work?My mother was a therapist and told me I had a gift. I was much better than her at understanding people. After the passing of my mom, I decided to fulfill this dream because I know it makes her proud.
What types of customers have you worked with?Marriage, Relationship, and Families, Emerging Adults (Ages 18-30), Chronically ill patients.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I had a couple who was not connecting. In fact, most of their communications involved conflict. They learned to listen to each other after a few months. At their last session, they asked me to witness their wedding. Moments like this inspire me in my job. Whatever happiness looks like, I encourage my clients to find it and deserve it. I also have a couple who had infidelity in their marriage. Since they've started coming , they have both been "ALL IN" They learned to accept their relationship will never be what it was before the infidelity. However, they told me , " After we left here, we talked for three hours like we've never talked before. It felt really good" This took about 2 months to get to this point.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?The best advice I can give is : the client should call the counselor and have a conversation with them. It's really important to feel comfortable talking to them. If you feel comfortable, hire them.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project? Will I feel comfortable working with this professional ?
