Accessible. My clients really value that I am easily accessible via phone, text, and email in between our sessions so they get prompt support when a significant challenge presents itself.

Immediate. Appointments are typically available within two weeks. Crisis appointments are usually accommodated within 24-48 hours.

Digital. If proximity or time constraints makes in-person visits a challenge we can meet via Zoom (HIPAA compliant) or Skype (not HIPAA complaint).

Flexible. Sessions are 60, 75, or 90 minutes (longer by request). If we hit a great stride near the end of our scheduled time and both our schedules allow, we can continue our appointment to maximize your progress.

Private. My cozy therapy room is located in a low-profile, quiet building on the near west side of Madison (adjacent to Hilldale Mall). Your personal information and the content of our sessions are kept confidential; unlike HMOs/larger clinics my practice is not subject to annual state audits where client files are reviewed by state personnel.

Solution-Focused. Many of my clients are looking for input, direction, and solutions. My approach to therapy expedites your change process.  Marriage Counseling Madison

First and foremost, my approach is non-judgmental and non-shaming. My personality is very caring, interested,  relaxed, and down to earth. I really do want to hear about what is weighing heavily on you. My office is your therapy space and provides a very safe environment to discuss difficult topics of any kind.  Marriage Counseling Madison

What you are looking for?

Advice? Direction? Need someone to simply listen? Maybe you know exactly what you want to accomplish and you’re looking for support to help you get there. Or, you may need help exploring to figure out what’s next for you in life. Either way, I will be your enthused co-pilot!

Some of our sessions will bring immediate change, like feelings of relief or confidence. And you’ll love that the majority of the tools and skill building we discuss are simple and NOT TIME INTENSIVE, therefore you can easily sustain these outside of our time together.

I know…

It can be a challenge to get started with therapy for many reasons including:  time, intimidation, money, embarrassment, it seems like a selfish investment, or you may try to convince yourself that doing something differently just on your own will relieve the need for therapy.  Marriage Counseling Madison

Reading these client testimonials may help you.

Remember, engaging in therapy is a phenomenal expression of self care which is NOT selfish.  You will benefit from therapy regardless of the magnitude of your concerns.

I’ll repeat… SELF CARE IS NOT SELFISH. Only you can do it for yourself, which is good news! This means you aren’t reliant on someone or something else to make you the best version of yourself.
