Additional Options for Therapy
I am now offering full psychotherapy sessions at significantly reduced fees. These services are provided by psychology students in their second and third years of study, and are under my supervision. It's like getting two therapists for ⅓ the price. Please contact me for more information. You can learn more about the students here.
I also have a psychological assistant who is available to provide services. Lisa Cochran is a PhD working toward getting her license. She is very smart and capable. You can learn more about her here.

What To Expect At Your Visit

Psychologists work on a deeper level than other types of therapists. We identify and understand a person's inner self. Psychotherapy is the process you and I use to increase your awareness of who you are. This is much more than just problem-solving.
Fears and anxiety can diminish. Depression and hopelessness can lighten. Your communication techniques will improve. You can be more effective and more satisfied in life.
