Buechner quote

“What we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often just what we fear more than anything else.  It is important from time to time to tell the secrets of who we truly and fully are…because otherwise we run the risk of losing track of who we truly and fully are and little by little come to accept the highly edited version which we put forth in hope that the world will find it more acceptable than the real thing.”

– Frederick Buechner

Quote 2

“In one sense the past is dead and gone, never to be repeated, over and done with, but in another sense, it is of course not done with at all or at least not done with us. Every person we have ever known, every place we have ever seen, everything that has ever happened to us – it all lives and breathes deep in us somewhere whether we like it or not.”

– Frederick Buechner



Why should I consider counseling?

People consider counseling for a variety of reasons. Some people are struggling with their faith and the impact of what they believe upon who they are. Others have experienced trauma and abuse. Some have been to war and are struggling to deal with unspeakable events. Some people feel “stuck” where they are in their lives and are wanting something different. Depression and anxiety clouds the daily lives of others.

I encourage you to remember that you do not have to have a “good enough” reason to go to counseling. No matter what your reason, counseling is a worthy investment in YOU.

Will counseling work for me?

There is scientific evidence that supports the efficacy of counseling. It has also been shown that counseling provides better long term relief of emotional issues. Counseling has been proven to help people actually FEEL better.
How often do you meet with people?

Counseling works best when counselor and client are able to meet on at least a weekly basis. This provides consistency from week to week, and allows our work to progress at a level that is most beneficial for you. I often meet with clients anywhere from 1-3 times per week.
Will my insurance pay for therapy?

I always advise people to contact their insurance company directly with questions. Some helpful questions to ask are:

  • Does my plan cover mental health treatment?
  • Do I have coverage for an out of network provider?
  • Is there any pre-authorization required from my provider?
  • What is my deductible?
  • Are there any limits on how many sessions you will cover?

(Please note that health care laws require insurance companies to treat mental health the same as physical health when it comes to coverage. This is called parity. If your provider says that you have a session limit, ask them how this complies with mental health parity laws.)
