Where is your office located?
My office is located at –
6601 Grand Teton Plaza
Madison, WI 53719
– right behind the fire station.
The entrance for our office suite is the last one on the west side of the building. Sometimes folks have gotten confused and gone into the wrong door, so please look for my name printed in white on the window next to our door – when you see that you will know you are in the right place!
If you have any trouble finding it, please give me a call.
What are your fees?
After a free 30-minute consultation, my standard rate is $125 per 60-minute session.
Initial appointments (aka, intakes) are longer, 90-minute sessions. My standard rate for intakes is a one-time fee of $175. We’ll cover a lot of important information here to help us start on solid ground, and the extended length allows ample time for this.
To encourage you to fully commit to this process and joyfully invest in yourself, I offer an introductory package that includes the 90-minute intake plus three 60-minute sessions for $495 when paid up front (removing the additional charge otherwise incurred at the intake).
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance payments. However, services may be eligible for reimbursement and may also be tax deductible. I’m happy to provide a super bill with necessary information for your use – please just ask.
How often will we meet?
My goal is to help you move forward as quickly as possible. To help us build momentum, I recommend starting out with weekly sessions for at least the first 4 weeks (making the above introductory package ideal!). At that time, you can decide to continue with weekly sessions or shift to every other week.
How long do clients typically work with you?
Most folks are with me anywhere from 6 months to a year. Once initial goals are achieved, many clients opt for a once monthly check-in to maintain their progress and nip any new issues in the (proverbial) bud.
When can I expect to experience progress?
Progress happens with each step forward. The moment you pick up the phone to schedule your free consultation, you are on your way!
Once regular sessions are rolling, the familiar adage “you’ll get out what you put in” applies. Coming to each session fully prepared to engage and completing your homework in between sessions will ensure you make steady progress.
Wait, did you just say “homework?”
I did! But don’t worry, I have a strict “no algebraic story problems allowed” policy. 😉
Homework simply affords you the opportunity to put the strategies and techniques we cover in each session into practice. It comes in a variety of forms such as thought exercises, short worksheets, or journaling, to name a few.
It’s highly customizable and allows each individual session to continue adding value long after the hour ends.
What is it like to work with you?
Previous clients have shared that they appreciate my collaborative approach, deep empathy, capacity to really listen, solution-focus, and unwavering support as they work toward their goals.
Please know that I will never rush you or judge you. I will gently, but firmly, hold you accountable to the goals you want to achieve.
Perhaps, most importantly, I will always meet you where you’re at. If that means giving your tears permission to flow or welcoming your belly laugh with my own, I’m IN.
I see you specialize in Career Counseling – can you help me with other issues too?
Absolutely. While career transition work is near and dear to my heart, I work with anyone struggling to find joy in their life.
Whether you’re experiencing career uncertainty, an unhappy relationship, ongoing depression or anxiety, a lack of self-confidence, or a general feeling of “stuck” in life, I’m here to help you understand what’s missing and create a life you love.
Will you help me write my resume?
If you’re changing career direction, an out-of-this-world resume is a necessity.
While I love resumes and created them for many years, I now contract with an uber-fantastic resume writer who will make you look absolutely stellar on paper. This service is available once a client has completed my 8-step career counseling program for an additional fee of $495.
If you’re interested in learning more about this service please let me know.
What is your cancellation policy?
Despite best efforts and plans, sometimes life throws a curve ball and we have to reschedule appointments. Been there!
I will always help you reschedule your appointment at no charge, when you let me know 24-hours in advance.
Cancellations with less than 24 hours’ notice will be subject to the full session fee (except in the case of medical emergency).
Are you going to make me lie down on your couch?
Nope. In fact, I’m not here to “make” you do anything.
My job is to provide a space that feels safe where you can express your feelings and grow as a person.
But, the couch is pretty comfy, so you are more than welcome to lie down, if you choose.
How do I get started?
You can see if working with me is the right fit for you. From there we can set up your first appointment and get you moving toward your goals.
