Common Issues Treated
Are you constantly worrying or on edge? Do racing thoughts make it hard to concentrate and be in the moment? Do you have headaches, stomach issues, and notice your heart pounding? Are you more irritable and shorter with those around you? If this sounds like you, anxiety treatment can help.
Anxiety is a normal response to stress, fear, and uncertainty. Most people have some level of anxiety at one time or another, but it generally passes after the stressful situation has ended. When anxiety becomes overwhelming and interferes with your daily life, therapy can help.
If you're struggling with anxiety, you're not alone. An estimated 40 million adults in the U.S. have an anxiety disorder, but only 37% receive treatment. Starting therapy can be scary, but the benefits can be life changing.
Anxiety treatment looks different for each person and we will use multiple therapy modalities to fit your needs. No matter what style of therapy we use, with our work together you will be able to decrease your overall level of anxiety, reduce irritability, and learn to be present in the moment. We will not only work on the here and now symptoms of your anxiety, but also the root causes to help you take control over your emotions.
Do you notice a shift in the way you view yourself or the world following a traumatic event? Do you have intrusive memories or thoughts relating to a traumatic event? Do you find yourself avoiding certain stimuli that remind you of the event? If this sounds like you, trauma treatment can help.
Trauma is created from any deeply distressing and disturbing event or series of events that has occurred in your life. People most often think of trauma in terms of physical, emotional, and sexual abuse, natural disasters, sudden death and loss, and war. However, trauma can also result from neglect, bullying, poverty, living with individuals who have mental illness, and many other experiences.
Trauma can affect every aspect of your life. Trauma can cause you to feel jumpy, have nightmares, be hypervigilant and aware of others and your surroundings, feel guilt, shame, and irritability. It can impact your relationships with others and cause you to feel stuck.
If you're struggling with the aftermath of trauma, you're not alone. More than two thirds of children reported at least 1 traumatic event by age 16.
The goal of trauma therapy is to help you heal from the events you have experienced, be present in your life, decrease your symptoms, shift the core beliefs trauma has caused, and improve your ability to function in daily life without feeling on edge all the time. Starting therapy can be scary, but the benefits can be life changing.
Do you have difficulty paying attention, staying focused or are easily distracted? Are you struggling to manage time, find yourself rigid in expectations, or have low frustration tolerance? Is it hard to control your emotions when you feel overstimulated? If this sounds like you, ADHD treatment can help.
There is no cure for ADHD, but it can be effectively managed with a combination of treatments, including therapy, educational interventions, and medication. Therapy can help you explore coping strategies and emotion regulation skills, educational interventions can help to create a structured and supportive learning environment, and medication can help to improve focus and attention and reduce impulsive behaviors.
If you're struggling with ADHD, you're not alone. An estimated 4.4% of adults in the U.S. have ADHD. However, many women are misdiagnosed or have their symptoms overlooked because they don't fit the stereotype of ADHD.
ADHD treatment looks different for each person, and we will use multiple therapy modalities to fit your needs. No matter what style of therapy we use, with our work together to help you manage all symptoms.
Do you struggle with getting out of bed or sleeping in? Do you often ask yourself what's the point? Do you find yourself sleeping more, eating less, and not engaging with the world? If this sounds like you, depression treatment can help.
It's normal to have a depressed mood when something hasn't gone right in our lives or when we experience loss or a breakup. When depression or a depressed mood becomes overwhelming and interferes with your daily life, therapy can help.
Depression can be a debilitating condition that affects not only your mood but your life in general. Depression can cause a persistent feeling of sadness, guilt, irritability, and loss of interest in activities. It can negatively affect your quality of life and work, as well as your relationships.
If you're struggling with depression, you're not alone. An estimated 17.3 million adults in the U.S. have a depressive disorder.
The goal of therapy is to help you feel better about yourself, decrease your symptoms of depression, and improve your ability to function in daily life without feeling depressed all the time. Starting therapy can be scary, but the benefits can be life changing.

Therapy Services cost $150 per 50-minute session and $270 per 90-minute session. Payment is due at the time of service and a card must be on file before the first appointment. You will receive a Good Faith Estimate to help you understand your financial responsibility as part of the intake paperwork.
The No Surprises Act Legislation (2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act) became effective 1/1/2022. This Legislation requires health care providers to provide a Good Faith Estimate for Services, specifically for private pay clients who are not using insurance, have opted out of using insurance, or who have insurance that the provider does not participate with.
You have the right to receive a GFE explaining how much your medical care will cost. Please note that this GFE also does not include any additional fees for paperwork for legal matters or court appearances/subpoenas. Please contact our office to learn more about our rates for services.
Sunridge Counseling does not accept health insurance. However, we can provide you with a superbill. A superbill is a document that contains information your insurance company needs to reimburse you for services directly. The information includes the name of your therapist, our office address, national provider ID number (NPI), business tax ID number, mental health diagnosis, dates of service, procedure codes, and the cost paid. Sunridge Counseling does not interact with or guarantee reimbursement from your insurance provider.
There can be many benefits to not using health insurance:
You are in control of your care, including choosing your therapist, length of treatment, etc.
Increased privacy and confidentiality (except for limits of confidentiality).
Not having a mental health disorder diagnosis on your medical record. (If you use a superbill, you must have a diagnosis)
Consulting with me on non-psychiatric issues that are important to you that aren't billable by insurance, such as learning how to cope with life changes, gaining more effective communication techniques for your relationships, increasing personal insight, and developing healthy new skills.
After reading my position on why I don't accept health insurance, you still may decide to use your health insurance. If you provide me with a list of therapists on your insurance provider list, I will do my best to recommend a therapist for you.
