Individual Therapy

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Individual therapy is an exploration of experiences and patterns of behavior, feelings or thoughts that have been the source of concern and distress. While it is often challenging to journey on these paths, when done in a familiar and safe therapeutic relationship, it can result in closer, more fulfilling relationships, a greater sense of emotional well-being and increased self-esteem.

I practice with a relational lens which means I see most struggles have to do with a relationship with a spouse, family member, friend, or an unhealthy relationship with yourself. Sometimes when there are problems in a relationship, our partners are unable or unwilling to attend counseling sessions. It is possible to navigate relational issues in individual therapy.

SESSION INFORMATION

I do not currently accept insurance; however, you can submit a request to your provider for out-of-network reimbursement for services. Often, you can simplify this by submitting request for several sessions at once or send your request after each session. There are advantages to choosing to private pay for counseling and I would love to discuss these with you. You can read the Common Therapy Questions for a brief overview. I offer a sliding scale for clients for each 50-minute session. I ask you to review the pricing scale and pay what is appropriate for you. All payments are due at the beginning of your session. I review my pricing twice a year and will promptly let you know if I change my fee structure.

WE ARE READY FOR A FREE MEETING

THE BEST WAY TO GET SOMETHING DONE IS TO BEGIN. LET’S START WITH A FREE 30 MINUTE PHONE CONSULTATION WHERE WE CAN SEE IF I AM A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR NEEDS. THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THERAPY IS A TRUSTING AND COLLABORATIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE THERAPIST AND THE CLIENT. DURING THIS PHONE CALL I WILL FIND OUT A BIT ABOUT YOU AND YOU CAN ASK ME QUESTIONS.

TESTIMONIALS

"The minute I entered the office I felt that my needs would be met with Rachel. The peaceful setting along with her great listening skills made sharing with her a breeze. How she perceived my situations and offered a fresh look at the situations gave me hope. She was not judgemental but offered insights to my unique situation. I felt she had really LISTENED and that made all the difference in the world to me. I would recommend Rachel's counseling service without hesitation."

“I came to Rachel in crisis and now I feel stronger. She builds my belief in myself. I’ve learned I’m an ok person and I can trust myself.”

"I leave my therapy sessions feeling as if I just took a biology class specifically on my brain & who I am & how I came to be me. Rachel has taught me so much & has helped me gain the knowledge & confidence to heal, move forward & transform my life."
