I'm a counselor and yoga instructor who has worked in community mental health, schools, and outpatient care in Australia, East Texas and Central Texas. Although I've received training in areas such as trauma, anxiety, and play therapy, to me ensuring we're a good fit is most important.
This work begins and ends with connection.
I know that taking the step to ask for help can be pretty intimidating. My mission is to create a safe space to find help and healing so you can embrace everything that makes you... you, quirks and all!
You are the expert in the room and know more than anyone else what you need. I do my best to honor that expertise and self determination through a compassionate & kind connection that will hopefully bring not only insight, but a little humor along the journey.
We all struggle with challenges in our lives. My role is to support you, reflect and help you explore meaning, and to give you tools to better navigate these challenges with grace and authenticity. For some this can include incorporating elements of yoga & mindfulness. Regardless of your preference, you can expect genuineness, humor and compassion in my approach.
Fees for self-pay individuals or those without insurance
First appointment with all clients. During this appointment we may discuss possible diagnoses and work together to determine a plan for treatment (the work we do together)
This includes individual adults in-person inside, outdoors, or online
*I am not accepting family, couples, or adolescent/child referrals at this time
Please see below for in-network insurance plans. For those with out-of-network plans, see the self-pay rates above. If you lose or change insurance plans, you will be responsible for the fees as listed above
ALL FEES ARE DUE AT TIME OF SERVICE. They can be paid via card only. There are no additional fees for incorporating yoga into counseling & therapy.
You can reach out via phone or email to make first contact, but Iwill want to talk to you over the phone prior to scheduling to ensure I'm a good fit for your needs
I'll send you some brief intake paperwork to complete before the session via text & email that just takes 5 minutes to complete.
For Face-to-Face Sessions
You can find the location listed below and it's hard to miss, there's a big sign that says "Quirk Yoga" on the side. Feel free to park in the grass anywhere there's an open spot. If there are already cars parked, you can park next to them, but we ask that you stay in your vehicle until it's time for your session to start
For Online Sessions
I use a platform offered via Psychology Today and when it's time for your appointment, you just need to click on this link sessions.psychologytoday.com/quirkwellspace
**If you are having trouble with this platform I have 3 alternative HIPAA-compliant systems that can be used and will work with you to ensure you can connect as seamlessly as possible**
For Face-to-Face Sessions
If the gazebo is empty, then feel free to grab a chair under the trees and relax before your appointment. If you see the grey privacy screen drawn, there will be an outdoor session in progress so please wait in your car until it's time for your appointment.
For Online Sessions
When you click on the link above, you'll be taken to a waiting room. I'm notified when you arrive, so not need to inform me. Occasionally, I may be running a few minutes late depending on my prior session, but know that I'll be with you as soon as I can.
**Please ensure that you are in a room where you have privacy and will not be overheard. Also note that I will NOT meet with anyone while in a moving vehicle, whether they are driving or not, as this can be very distracting.
We'll start by reviewing some policies and touching base with any questions you may have. Then I'll ask you questions about your past and current concerns to get a better picture of how you're doing and to make treatment recommendations. If there's anything you don't want to talk about, just tell me and we won't go there. Remember you're in the driver's seat. At the end of session, we'll discuss a plan for ongoing appointments or other recommendations and schedule
Before your next appointment, we'll verify insurance and let you know if there are any questions or concerns. When you come in, we'll get started on what you want to work on and go from there. At the end of each appointment we'll schedule for the next session.
