I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to give you a chance to ask questions about counseling services. If we both decide to move forward, an initial consultation will be scheduled at my Claremont office.
To set up a time to talk by phone, please call 909.941.0781 or send an email. All contacts, which are confidential, are answered promptly.
- I always thought I should be able to handle my own problems. What are your other clients like? My clients are honest, capable, hard-working and often surprised to find themselves struggling with a relationship or with depression and anxiety. Many of them suffered in silence for a long time before counseling ... believing, like you, that getting help was a sign of weakness. All of them had to do a little "self therapy" before they were ready to make that first call.

- What do you mean by "self therapy?" Within nearly every individual, even a person who has been unhappy for years, is a part that believes a more satisfying life is possible. You may feel it as a nudge or as a thought ... it's the force that brought you to this website today. Believe the part that still has hope ... even if you have to overcome a self-critical inner voice that says otherwise. Your negative and critical voice will never lead you to a better place.
- How much does this cost? My fee for an initial evaluation (75 minutes) is $170. In the first session, I gather background history and, together, we identify goals and a plan for treatment. Follow-up sessions for couples (75 minutes) are priced at $170 per session. Follow-up sessions for individuals (60 minutes) are $145 per session. Payment by credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover), debit card and cash are accepted. After I understand your goals, I will estimate the number of counseling sessions you will need.
- Wow! That seems like a big financial commitment. There are few things you can buy that will improve your quality of life as much as a healthy relationship ... and that includes the relationship you have with yourself. At the same time, the desire for a more satisfying life varies from person to person ... only you can decide if the expense is worth it. Helping you through this phase of your life is a commitment I take seriously.
