Therapeutic Modalities Offered

During first session, we will determine your therapeutic needs. The following is a list of some of the main modalities I work with in individual and family counseling. Interventions will be tailored throughout therapy to best facilitate change and healing.

Sandtray Therapy: This mod​ality uses a sandtray and miniatures to help clients construct their "inner world". It is a way to access children and adolescents indirectly and is often less intimidating than simply talking about what is bothering a client. Adults benefit from sand tray as well! 

TFCBT: Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a evidence based modality that helps children and adolescents who have experienced some type of trauma. It is a structured type of therapy and treatment focuses on developing coping skills and telling the story of what happened to them thus empowering clients.


Family Therapy: In family therapy, I work with parents and children to find solutions to their relational problems. I am influenced by the work of John T. Edwards, PhD who pioneered many techniques in family therapy. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialetical Behavioral Therapy Skills: These modalities are effective for depression, anxiety and self harm behaviors. They help clients to examine their thoughts and how to change their thoughts to more helpful thoughts.


Fees for Counseling:

$150 For Initial Assessment (Approximately a 90 minute session)

$100 for 45 minute individual session

$120 for 60 minute family therapy session or individual session. 

A sliding scale fee is offered for self pay clients. 

I am accepting self-pay clients,  Blue Cross Blue Shield of NC PPO plans, excluding Blue Value, and Carolina Behavioral Health Alliance (Medcost if WFBH or WFU employee).I see clients with Optum or United Healthcare as well. I will file out of network with your insurance as well.
