Meet The Therapist

No matter what chapter of your life you are in, sometimes it helps to have someone to listen to and help process parts of your story. Together, we will walk through the parts of your story that you need to be heard in order to help you write the next chapter in your life with a feeling of purpose.

Please see each therapist's bio to see if they accept your insurance.  Self-pay and sliding fee scale options are also available to be made to Purposed Life Counseling in the form of cash, debit or credit card. All payments are due the same day that your services are provided.
