To make an appointment, please call me directly at (205) 832-0756. Rest assured! My voicemail is completely confidential! If you can't immediately reach me, please leave a message with your name and number and I will return your call as soon as possible.

• What is the first session like?
• How much do you charge?
I accept payments on an income-based sliding fee scale. If you're worried about payment, please contact me. Special plans and charges can be discussed!

$40,001 - $60,000: $80
$60,001 - $80,000: $100
$80,001 - $100,000: $120
$100,001 and above: $140
• what forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, card, and checks.
• What days & Hours do you work?
I work Monday - Friday, typically from 10am - 6pm. If you need weekend or after-hour appointments, please contact me! My schedule is flexible and can be made to accommodate your needs.
• How many sessions will I need?
The number of sessions each person needs varies greatly and depends on what issues you're wanting to work on. These concerns will be discussed during your initial session. Remember: you're in charge of what we work on and for how long.
• Are the things I say confidential?
Of course! I take your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. This will all be discussed during our first meeting.
