What I Do
I am often asked:
WHAT DO YOU DO IN THERAPY SESSION? WHAT IS YOUR THEORETICAL APPROACH? WHO DO YOU SEE?
I will attempt to answer these questions so we can have an effective journey together, and perhaps reading this page will stimulate other questions that you may wish to ask me. First, one must remember and understand that in entering into therapy, there are no easy answers or solutions. Therapy requires a commitment on the part of the client to time and hardwork. We will discuss these issues in more detail during the first few sessions
I integrate many different approaches and techniques, depending on the issue, to help you increase your self-awareness and understanding of your behavior patterns and belief systems. With awareness, comes choice and the opportunity to choose more satisfying and healthier ways of living. There is no set plan, no agenda that I use to guide you. I appreciate the uniqueness of each client’s inner world and language, a uniqueness that requires me to invent a new therapy language for each client. My paramount task is to build a relationship together, that will itself become the agent of change. I am prepared to go wherever my client goes, and do all the necessary to continue building trust and safety in the therapeutic relationship. We get wounded in our relationships, so we need a good therapeutic relationship to heal the way we relate - you need to have a relationship to heal one! I tailor the therapy for each client, to find the best way to heal.
As a transpersonal psychotherapist in my work with individuals and couples, I will, with your agreement, use various methods to help you to explore the problems you face. I may use visualizations, meditations, dreamwork, breathing and body awareness techniques to access and explore this wider domain.

Workshops and ongoing groups in relationships, and a special groups for women only, are available.
I invite you to contact me to discuss your needs with no obligation or cost to you. Please call me at 404.771.1649. I can generally return your call within 24 hrs.
Therapy sessions are reserved specifically for each client. Continuity and reserving sessions are important for your progress. Please notify me at least 48 hours in advance if you must cancel your appointment. If possible we can agree on another time, preferably within a week’s period. I will not charge you for the missed session if it is beyond the 48 hours notice. I will not charge for missed session once per year for extreme extenuating circumstances. Without 48 hours advanced notice, I charge for the session since I cannot use it to see another client. I will give you several weeks notice of my vacations and ask that you do the same. Termination should be discussed in full. Generally, a termination that gradually tapers off therapy is advisable. You may pay weekly, preferably at the beginning of each session, or at the beginning of each month. Special arrangements may be made by mutual agreement. Please be aware that I do not accept insurance, however, I am willing to work within your budget. You will be charged a $25 service charge for returned checks.
Your fee is sufficient payment. For sake of your growth, I do not accept gifts for holidays or special events, nor socialize at social gatherings.
