You have the right to know the goals of therapy and means by which we will meet these goals. You are expected to take an active part in formulating these goals. Our relationship is very important and is different from other relationships in your life. You are expected to talk freely and openly about yourself, much more so than you do in social relationships. My job is to listen, select, sort, make observations and to reflect your feelings so you may see yourself more clearly. The goal of this process is the reorganization of your thinking, feelings and behavior in a manner more satisfying to you. While I may suggest changes, only you can make them.
Our relationship is confidential. This means that I will not release information about you to anyone without your written consent. State Law, however, places certain limitations on the right of confidentiality. Minnesota Statues, Section 626.556 require that any and all social services personnel report (a) any incidence or knowledge of suspected neglect, physical or sexual abuse of children to child protection services and (b) maltreatment of vulnerable adults as specified in the Vulnerable Adults Act (Minnesota Statute 626.557). I must also present my treatment records if they are subpoenaed by proper legal authority.
In addition, according to the Tarasoff Ruling I am required to break confidentiality when we believe there is clear and imminent danger that a client may harm him or herself or another person. Therefore, the therapist is required to do whatever possible to prevent suicide or homicide.
If you need help in deciding if your insurance will cover the cost of the session, I can assist you with obtaining that information. If you do not have insurance or choose to pay out of pocket, please call me to discuss arrangements. It is my desire for you to receive the help you need. I currently accept credit and debit cards for payment options.
If you have insurance, I will bill the insurance company for you. You are responsible for the co-payment at the time of the appointment. If you do not have insurance, please contact me to discuss your options.
I am Licensed in the State of Minnesota and work with individuals, couples and families. For your convenience, I offer services in Lanesboro MN.
In most cases, we will meet on a weekly basis. Your call or e-mail will be returned promptly. My voice mail is confidential for your protection and peace of mind. An initial e-mail or phone consultation is offered at no charge to you. Once an appointment has been set up, a 24-hour cancellation is required to avoid charges.
With many years of training and experience utilizing Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), there are many issues that can be successfully resolved. As a Christian therapist I have seen tremendous results with EMDR.
I also have been trained in Critical Incident Stress Debriefing, Mitchell Model. I have been called upon to assist in counseling after suicides, homicides and other traumatic incidents.
People come to me from a variety of walks of life and variety of issues. Your journey starts with a call. I offer a safe environment and an empathic yet direct approach to therapy.
