Our counselors help with many issues. The areas we specialize in are listed below:
You may also think of this as relationship counseling, marital counseling, couples counseling, or pre-marital counseling. We also work with individuals who are having relationship issues. We support you by helping you to overcome betrayal and trust problems, strengthen communication skills, build conflict resolution skills, build intimacy, and much more.
Weight Loss Counseling
We use a variety of strategies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR therapy, and brief solution-focused therapy. These therapies are evidence-based techniques that yield results according to a great deal of research. Our approach helps you to overcome emotional eating, determine underlying issues that are holding you back from reaching your goals, or helping you find what motivates you to reach your goals.
Self Esteem Counseling
This includes self improvement, building self worth and self confidence, and improving low self esteem. We use evidence-based therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy and brief solution-focused therapy when helping people improve self esteem. Gaining insights into how your self esteem has been damaged, along with developing the skills to increase and protect self esteem can help you to have a healthier perspective on who you are.
Trauma Support and Recovery
We provide this type of counseling for military veterans, survivors of domestic violence and survivors of other types of traumatic events. We have worked with many individuals and families who utilized victim's compensation to help pay for counseling as well as clients paying out of pocket. Our counselors offer compassion, help you learn healthy coping skills, and help you overcome traumatic events that are holding you back from a satisfying, healthy, and successful life.
Our counselors work with people struggling with all different types of addictions including alcohol, prescription and other drugs, gambling and sex addiction. We support multiple approaches to overcoming addiction including mindfulness-based relapse prevention, 12-steps, and strengths-based approaches. We encourage you to find multiple ways of surrounding yourself with support - strengthening support systems and coping skills, determining the most helpful approach that fits you, as well as gaining insight into how the addiction has developed.
Additional information about us and how it works at LifePaths:
Our counselors work by appointment, and most appointments are between 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Each of us occasionally make appointments outside of these hours if circumstances allow. Weekends are available as well. It helps if you mention the time you need for appointments when you contact us.
Our fee is $100 per session. Sessions are 45-50 minutes.
EMDR sessions are typically 75-90 minutes in length and are $150 per session.
For payment, we take all major credit cards as well as check or cash.
There are a limited number of sliding scale fee slots available in our practice. If this is something you need, please let us know when you contact us.
At this time, we are not "in network" with any insurance carriers. We can offer your a receipt with all the appropriate codes, which allows you to submit a claim yourself.
We do not bill insurance companies directly and we are happy to discuss our reasons for this with you in more detail; essentially we prefer to maintain as much confidentiality as we can in caring for our clients. Billing an insurance company directly may require that we share more information about your care than you are comfortable with, and may have unexpected consequences.
