Beyond Diagnosis Counseling provides counseling for individuals, couples and families. I will help you with the most important part of living; building meaningful and loving connections with those who matter most to you. Relationship enhancement is the foundation of well-being. When we do not have a reliable and stable support system, we often try to fill the void with addictions or self-defeating coping mechanisms. With closer connections, life's stressors seem more manageable and the quality of your life becomes immeasurable. It is my goal to help you feel empowered personally in order to begin the path to developing healthy connections and positive coping strategies to face life's challenges.

I accept insurance so your sessions may be covered under your insurance plan. Please check the Rates and Insurance information page for the most current list of insurances accepted.

Because of the power of developing closer connections, therapy will often include some of the important people in your life. Young children and parents most often have their sessions together in order for children to continue therapeutic interventions at home with their parents. Adolescents generally have some sessions with family; other sessions are individual depending on the circumstances. In addition, individuals may be asked to bring in significant others or family members to overcome barriers to closer connections.

Therapy is a safe place to share your thoughts and feelings and to problem solve together how to effectively increase your life satisfaction. I look forward to working together with you to achieve your goals. Please call or email me today to arrange your first session.

While I primarily utilize family systems therapy approaches, I also realize therapy is a very individual experience and I always customize my approach to best meet your needs and goals. I will do my best to accommodate your preferences in order for you to have a successful and meaningful therapeutic experience.

Please call or email me for an initial consultation today. I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation so that we can discuss what kind of help you are looking for and to answer questions you may have. I look forward to hearing from you.
