Individual Counseling

The Living Free program is individual counseling that’s customized to your personal situation and held via private sessions. It’s a chance for you to talk about what’s happening in your life and what’s causing you concern. After our initial consultation, I’ll review some options with you about how counseling might be able to help. How we proceed is always up to you. See the FAQ page and brochure for additional details about individual counseling.
