Clinical Professional Counselor Intern

I will seek to understand and appreciate who you are as a person within a larger family system through therapeutic art, conversational engagement, and often music. I will challenge you, in a caring way, to seek alternative perspectives on your current life engagement, thinking and living.

I have, as a professional artist with certified spiritual advisement certification, counseled through therapeutic art and solution-focused directive for the past thirty years. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from the University of New Mexico. Currently, I am operating as an LCPC, LMFT Intern with Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and under the supervision of Mary Zachary-Lang, LCPC; Art Therapist.

I love to work with individuals, couples, blended families and family systems including groups and churches.

My treatment specialties include issues within adoption, anxiety, career, depression, divorce, grief/loss, premarital, marital, remarriage complications and adjustment; mood disorders, religious/spirituality advisement and direction; teen and woman’s issues.

I do not accept third party payment and payment is expected at the time of service. My fee for individual therapy is $50.00 per hour. Couples are $75.00 per hour while groups are negotiated at time of organization and often include materials fee. It is important for me to keep my rates reasonable so I have a few sliding scale slots available.

Sliding Fee: Yes
