During our 15-minute phone consultation, make sure you are in a good place to have a private conversation. During our call I will want to learn a little bit about your situation, what prompted your call and answer any questions you may have for me. After learning more about you and your situation, I can let you know if and how I might be of help to you.
I want to ensure that you get the best possible outcome and may refer you to another therapist if we decide it’s not a good fit.
If we decide it would be a good fit, then we can schedule our first appointment at my office. My address is 8800 Ralston Road, Suite 204, Arvada, CO 80002.

Other Frequently Asked Questions
What if I’ve tried therapy before and it didn’t work?
You may not have had a good fit with your therapist. Or you may not have been ready for therapy. During our 15-minute phone call, I can get more information from you to help us determine if now is a good time for therapy.
Can you guarantee results?
I will do my best to help you achieve your goals, but I cannot guarantee any particular outcome. You are likely to gain the most benefit from counseling if you are committed to the process and attend sessions regularly. It’s also helpful to engage with any in between session homework that we’ve agreed upon. Keep in mind that much of the transformation happens outside of the therapy hour.
What do you charge?
I charge $130 for a 50-minute session. I encourage you to think of this as a long-term investment in your mental wellness. You may want to consider what are the long-term costs are of not getting help – missing out on social and business opportunities, turning to drugs, alcohol, food to feel better, feeling isolated from others. Can you place a price tag on your peace of mind, feeling more confident, or your relationships?
What if I feel I don’t have much to say the day of our session?
First keep your appointment, because consistency is key to a positive outcome. Second, not having much to say in session isn’t a sign that you are done with therapy – it can be a signal that something is blocking your progress and to keep working. Getting stuck in therapy is okay and in fact can be a normal part of the therapeutic process. It’s important to bring it up so that we can discuss what might be getting in the way of our work together.
I see that one of your specialties is mindfulness, what if I can’t meditate or have a hard time getting rid of thoughts?
You don’t need to be able to meditate to practice mindfulness. Mindfulness is something that you already know how to do. Have you ever had the experience of being engrossed in a hobby or activity and felt like time stood still? That’s the experience of being mindful. I can teach you other exercises (in addition to mindfulness meditation) that will strengthen the part of your brain that helps you to stay focused. These exercises don’t have to take a lot of time.
We can’t get rid of thoughts and that’s not the purpose of meditation or not mindfulness meditation. However, some people who practice meditation regularly report a decrease in the “chatter” or liken it to turning down the volume on a radio.
