Just breath, you can do this, you are strong and courageous. You have already made the hardest decision, you decided you need help. I believe counseling is for the brave at heart. Not many people are able to face their problems but you my friend have already started the journey.
Why should I come to counseling? There are many reasons to seek professional help. A counselor provides a unique opportunity for you to explore your concerns with an objective eye and trained ear. I believe seeing a counselor is an act of courage and a positive step towards wholeness and peace.
What are the benefits of counseling? Clients often feel supported in a way that friends and family can’t provide. The counseling office becomes a place where the client feels safe to become venerable and share his, her, or their story. By talking through thoughts, feelings, and experiences clients often feel a sense of relief. By sharing their burden it often looses it’s power over them.
Who is my ideal client? My ideal client is an individual who is ready to face what ever it is that is holding them back in life. The client is willing to talk about the experiences, trauma, or events that has him, her, or them seeking help. The client will engage in recommended readings, journaling, artistic expression and other homework assigned between sessions.
What to expect at your first session. The first session is about getting to know each other. When you arrive you will fill out an information sheet which will help me get a picture of who you are and why you are seeking counseling. In this first session I will ask a lot of questions so that I can start to form a plan for you based on your goals. This is also a time for you to get to know me better and gain an understanding of the counseling process.
What about fees and payment? My counseling fees are pre-set and range from $70-$95 for a 50-minute session, fees are due at the conclusion of each session. I am in-network with Aetna and Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. For out of network insurance carriers I am happy to provide you with a receipt should you desire to file for reimbursement from your insurance company. I accept cash, check, MasterCard and Visa.
