Has life become
overwhelming or difficult enough for you to consider seeking help?
Do changes in
healthcare over recent years have you wondering about privacy,
confidentiality and whether help is worth the cost?
help should not add to your problems, it should reduce them.
You should know the
choices and risks in seeking professional help.
You can use your benefit plan, but you must ask yourself: Is it worth it
Is it worth the
complications that come with public intrusion of managed care and
insurance companies into your private life, with their requirements of
labeling you with a mental illness diagnosis and having rights to your

I invite you to choose counseling with
one of the few remaining independent practitioners who have refused to
become involved in the unethical policies and practices of managed care.
Some years ago, when managed care began its move to take over local
healthcare, including mental healthcare, I made a decision. For
professional ethical and moral reasons, I refused to become involved. I

Simply put, when it
comes to Big Business, especially in the healthcare and pharmaceutical
industries, your interests do not come first. Because I love
my counseling work and I love people, I put you first. I hold sacred
the privacy of your personal life conflicts and concerns. My services
are offered up front, without double-talk, so you know what you are
getting before we begin. Things like a commitment to stand by you
throughout your period of crisis and recovery – no matter how short or
long that may be. And an affordable, sliding fee scale below the
going rate, based on your
family income. The first half hour of your
first session is free – because it’s important that you come to
feel that we can work together before you become financially committed.
Here, you don’t need a psychiatric diagnosis as a requirement for
receiving counseling – only sincerity in your desire to work through
your situation. Finally, your privacy and confidentiality and your

Beyond that, what can I offer you as
you consider seeking professional help?
I have more than a generation of
experience helping people find hope, of helping them through changes in
their lives; of helping them put their lives back together.
From my heart, as a
professional counselor, I offer you help to find your own way through
your difficult times.
I offer you confidence
in your ability to do it.
My experience in this
work has taught me that there is no tragedy so great, no shame so deep,
and no pain so overwhelming but that the power of the human spirit can
break through to the light.
May it be so with you,
as I trust it will.
With Deepest Personal
