Counseling sessions are generally 55 minutes in length, though if you'd like a longer session, please bring that up with me. (Sometimes 55 minutes does not feel long enough with EMDR.) I am offering teletherapy via a HIPAA-compliant platform, in-person outdoors or in-office with with or without masks.
Let's talk on the phone to see if we would be a good fit. In our conversation, we will determine together if we think you may benefit from meeting with me. If needed, I can assist you with an appropriate referral.
In our sessions together, I will encourage you to ask questions throughout, take risks, be curious, and when applicable, engage in some EMDR & other somatic experiments to see what your brain/mindbody will do with it! I may also ask you to "press pause" during certain discussions to slow down and watch what's happening in a different way. The overwhelming majority of clients I work with begin to notice changes in their thoughts, emotions, reactions, physical sensations and behaviors within a few sessions.
I offer hope, a break from the monotony of the ways you generally interact with others, as well as a dose of authentic connection - as I realize you might be pretty darn tired of your defense system being in overdrive (which is completely exhausting and leaves you feeling unseen). I am direct, swift, and gentle in helping you name the thoughts and behaviors that have hijacked your life - as well as the thoughts/feelings you would rather be having instead!
I am in network with most BCBSNC, Aetna, United, and MedCost plans. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to learn about your benefits prior to our meeting so you know what to expect.
If you are insured by another carrier, I can often be considered an out of network clinician and with the approval of both you and your insurance company, I will happily submit claims on your behalf. What you are reimbursed is between you and your insurance company.
Alternatively, I can supply you with a "superbill" that you can submit to your insurance company so that you may be reimbursed.
I'm not taking new clients at this time. Sometimes I know therapists with an opening? If I can help link you with someone else, I will do my best.
