Do you have an office?
No. All my services are virtual through video and voice call. In person sessions are considered upon request and availibility.
What are your hours?
Currently, my hours are usually 7am to 7pm MDT, Sunday through Wednesday. This could change from time to time depending on availability. Check my available times on my scheduling page.
How much are your sessions?
I offer 50-55 minute sessions for $155 per session. I offer sliding scale and discounts per request and availability, feel free to inquire.
Do you take insurance?
Short answer is no. Long answer is, I am credentialed with a few insurance panels in the State of Colorado. It has been my experience that insured sessions bring barriers to treatment, they require you to diagnose a client, and bring difficulties with reimbursement that make running a practice difficult. I find that I can be more effective with my clients without such barriers.
What is your cancellation policy?
I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. This is different from the more usual 24hr one. 48 hours allows more time for other clients to take on cancelled appointments. This cancellation applies unless there is a medical emergency or weather inclement.
What's your training and experience?
I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology from Naropa University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor under Colorado’s State Jurisdiction. I have experience working in crisis response, people in extreme states of mind, children, families, individual and group therapy.
I also have a background in education, teaching, and curriculum design.
I recognize the pros and cons of being licensed,
the services provided through this website are not meant to be used for clinical counseling intervention or clinical therapy. If you’re seeking a clinical oriented treatment please use a directory of licensed counselor who can support you.
What will I get from working with you?
A lot of no-thing-ness. Jokes aside, I will help you see yourself, relate to others and to the world more effectively, develop fearlessness, a sense of freedom, and the ability to handle yourself in the best way possible in any situation.
In reality, consider this as an investment in you, just like going to the gym and getting a personal trainer, I can give you exercises, sets, adjust your posture, but at the end of the day you will need to lift the weights on your own to see progress.
Why did you become a therapist/counselor/coach/mentor?
Short answer: Because I wanted to.
Long answer: People always tell me that I have a natural ability to see what’s going on inside of them, to listen, and to reflect back to them. At some point I decided it was a good idea to use these abilities to provide a service and make it my livelihood.
In reality, it is a mistake to use the mind to find the cause of any effect, there are plenty of unseen causes and conditions that one cannot even begin to comprehend that play a bigger role in everyone’s path.
