Information About Anchored Within Counseling and The Types of Services Offered

Free 15 minute Phone Consultation 

This is a short introductory conversation about your therapeutic needs (individual or couples/marriage) as well as an opportunity for me to provide you with information about my practice, location, pricing, and therapy practices.

Please contact me directly at (480)568-5392 to discuss your therapy needs or to schedule an intake appointment and to see if I am a good fit for working with you.  

What is an Intake Appointment?

The intake appointment is a unique opportunity for me to learn about you, your life, and what you are seeking counseling services for. This 90 minute session is the time where we will talk about and explore your unique lived experiences (development, relationships, emotions, behaviors, family etc.) as well as map out goals for the therapy process. This opportunity is also the time where you are able to ask me questions about myself, my training, my education, as well as explore my office and the unique structure of my office (interacting with the library of books on display, the art bins, sensory items, sand tray Zen garden, meditation/breathing exercises). Learning about you is just as important as you learning about me. We must feel comfortable, safe, and secure to truly engage in the authentic therapeutic journey.

Individual Therapy

I have found that integration of clients passions into the therapy work helps clients to gain a more authentic connection to themselves and the therapy process. I truly believe in meeting clients where they are, understanding clients from a whole person perspective and lens, and walking beside them as they navigate and learn about themselves, emotions, relationships, and the world. 

Individual counseling services will use one on one sessions to focus on exploring lifespan, relationships, and self from a bio-psycho-social and psychodynamic approach while using art, music, educational resources, and mindfulness modalities and interventions. I specialize in working with:

Couples and Marriage Therapy

Working with couples allows for integration of an integrative and eclectic mode of therapy where individual lifespan and couples experiences are explored and forged. Using The Gottman Method along with Dr. Alexandra H. Soloman's Relationship Work to explore the interpersonal and intra-psyche relationship challenges and build individual awareness of the unique lifespan influences of one another along with learning about the development of the self. This self fosters and encourages an authentic awareness of the self and of your partner which allows for and encourages compassionate and empathic relational growth. 

Whether the couple is needing support to effectively communicate, reignite passion/intimacy, work through the challenges associated with continuing with the relationship or take the next steps in their relationship, I willingly participate, facilitate, challenge, encourage, and support the couple without bias or preconceived judgement to help them connect, learn, and grow together.

Integrative Therapy Models Used

Collaborative and Integrative Approaches are used to ensure Clients receive the care and support they need throughout their therapy process:

Intake Paperwork and Consent Forms

All Intake Paperwork and Consent Forms are provided to clients electronically through the Patient Portal. The patient portal is a HIPAA compliant and a confidential platform that is used for all client demographic, consent forms, scheduling, billing, and counseling session documentation services. Each client has their own unique credentials for logging in and for viewing upcoming appointments as well requesting appointments. This is also the place where you will complete and submit Client Information Forms and Consent Forms. 

During our Phone Consultation, your secure and individualized client profile will be created and an electronic link will be sent to the email address you provide. This link will grant you access to your profile so that you can complete all documents and personal information.

Consent forms are required for all counseling services as it grants me permission to work with you and you are agreeing to work me! 

Should you ever forget or lose your password for the portal, send me a quick email message requesting a password reset or use the "Password Reset" button on your "log-in" page and an email will be sent to you to reset your password.

Why Are My Services Cash Pay?

Being able to choose the person whom you receive counseling services from is important- one must trust the person to trust the process. As if you are choosing a doctor or other medical professional, it is important that you are able to make decisions for your own well being without being tied down or restricted. While using insurance is a great financial supplement, insurance requires a medical diagnosis, which can be a scary and an overwhelming process. When it comes to quality of care and autonomy in medical decision making for self, you should not be restricted to the limitations of insurance. Prioritizing your mental health is the equivalent to prioritizing your physical and medical health. 

What to check to see if your insurance provider will reimburse you for Out-of-Network services? Contact your insurance provider directly and discuss the options that they have for your to receive possible Out-of-Network reimbursement. Following each counseling session, a Super Bill document can be provided to you to submit to your insurance company. While there is no guarantee of reimbursement, it never hurts to ask this information and to be prepared in advance for the options you have for counseling autonomy and agency over your mental well-being.
