I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation, so that you have an opportunity to get acquainted with me, ask questions, learn more about therapy, and decide if you think that you and I are an appropriate match. Finding the right counselor is a very important factor determining if therapy will be successful. This consultation allows you to get a sense of how you and I will fit together, without any financial obligation or paperwork to fill out. If at the end of the consultation you do not feel like I am the right therapist for you, I am happy to help you with a referral. If I can be of assistance in answering any other questions you may have about therapy in general or about me specifically please contact me at 605-610-9228.
**It is important to understand that the free 20 minute consultation will not be a therapy session. Therefore you are encouraged to not disclose any personal or identifying information unless or until you wish to schedule your first therapy session.Although you can give me a sense of your goals for therapy and presenting concerns, it is not appropriate to delve into the issues until an official therapeutic relationship has been initiated.
*In case of emergency call 911.
I possess a genuine and strong passion for walking with others on their journey towards good mental health and meaningful, happy lives. I believe in providing a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to explore areas for growth. I mostly apply strength-based and cognitive-behavioral approaches.
