What to expect when you see me for Holistic Counseling services...
As a Holistic therapist, I take a "Whole-Picture" approach to helping my clients identify all of the things in their life that may be affecting how they feel. From there, I empower my clients to step into their "Courageous True-Self" to face their challenges with safety, compassion, and understanding. ...That's where the healing happens. I believe that we are ALL capable of regaining our livelihood and sense of Individual Power... and I teach people how to do that!
As of June 1st, 2018
I am now incorporating EFT Tapping into my counseling services. All services that are receiving this added skill have been recently updated in their pricing. Please reach out to me for any questions related to this exciting new offering!
Services and Pricing:
All services are generally private pay; as insurance does not cover my Holistic services and supports. Some clients have had success with Out-of-Network reimbursement from their insurances, so this MAY cover services if your specific situation allows. If this is used, individual clients are responsible for submitting personal reimbursement claims to their benefit provider. I DO accept FSA/HSA cards as of 1/1/22.
**ALL "Bookings" for sessions must be scheduled with me personally through email or phone; I do not have an online booking system for appointments.**
Please also note that ALL of my services are personalized to the needs of each individual client. Below you will find my service descriptions and their single-service based pricing to give you an idea of what to expect.
Sessions vary in type and length of services, are may be available as A-La-Carte services and/or in service Packages. Based on schedule availability and/or client need, service sessions may be completed more than once a week, weekly, bi-weekly, and Monthly; these decisions are based upon each client's individual goals and needs.
Scroll to the bottom of the page to learn more about my packages rates and conditions.
I offer a 3 Tier sliding-scale payment system for services; allowing sessions to be more accessible to a variety of community members. To review your specific rate eligibility, please contact me with your gross W-2 income OR net self-employed income (whichever applies). Eligible sessions are indicated next to the service types. Listed service prices are for the Tier-3 of my sliding-scale system; which is my highest service rate for sessions.
FREE 15-Minute Phone Consultation
Committing to receiving therapy services can be intimidating and confusing to approach... and I always make sure my clients feel they have chosen me as their clinician because our work truly helps them to feel better.
I put a high value on the rapport I have with my clients, and I want each person to know that they mesh well with (and are excited for) the holistic approach that I bring to the table.
Each therapeutic relationship is unique, but the foundation always needs to be one in which a client feels safe, free from judgment, and also trusts that their clinician approaches them in a way that works for them!
That's why I am happy to offer a FREE 15 minute phone conversation to answer any questions you might have prior to signing up for services!
Please leave me a message on my confidential voicemail 978-255-7893, and I will be happy to call you back at a time that works for the two of us, or email me and we can work a time to fit it in our mutual schedules.

$75 per 1-hour service
Dual/Couples Wellness Assessment
$85 per 1-hour service
This brief service is great for couples, and/or two-person relationships, who would like an outside neutral party to help reflect on the relationship and receive assistance with improving the bond and understanding between both parties.
For this service, both people come in together and meet with me to complete their own versions of the Dual/Couples Wellness Assessment together; a visual and interactive assessment to evaluate strengths, challenges, and priorities within the relationship and dynamic.
We will take a "whole perspective" look at the relationship and identify the top 3 things that the relationship would benefit most from improving first. We will then brainstorm 3 approachable action steps that you can implement together and see the biggest change in the shortest amount of time.
Lastly, you will leave with a relationship affirmation to remind you of why you are desiring to implement those changes in your partnership/ two-person relationship.
This is a great service for a quick, and well-rounded "relationship check-in", as well as get a sense of what it's like working with me if you are considering other services.
This service can be provided in the home, or in my beautiful and relaxing office in downtown Newburyport. Both partner's need to be present for this assessment. This service can be used for couples who want to plan a healthy foundation for a new relationship, or for couples who want to get back to that excitement in the connection between you!
This service can also be done monthly as a "check-in" to make sure you are keeping your commitment to each other a priority.
Family Wellness Assessment

This service is wonderful for families who feel like they need some support, but they just don't know where to start to work towards improvement.
For this service, Caregiver(s) and/or Head(s) of household meets with me to complete the Family Wellness Assessment; a visual and interactive assessment to evaluate strengths, challenges, and priorities of your family unit.
We will take a "whole-family-perspective" look at the family unit and identify the top 3 things that the family would benefit most from addressing first. We will then brainstorm 3 approachable action steps that can be implemented immediately to see the biggest change in the shortest amount of time. Lastly, you will leave with a family affirmation to remind you of why you are desiring to implement those changes.
This is a great service for a quick, and well-rounded "family check-in", as well as get a sense of what it's like working with me if you are considering other services.

Private Services - Therapy
Individual Adult Counseling Services (Standard)
$165- 1 hour
For adult who just feel "stuck" and desire one-to-one services to figure out how to improve their feelings. Using non-judgmental dialogue coupled with holistic and new age tools and perspectives, I take a well-rounded approach to uncovering the real "sticking points" that have prevented my client's long-term successes and healthy lifestyle choices.
Get back to your healthy functioning and overall increased confidence through individual services with me; at the frequency that works for you!
I help my clients to identify their own power to change their life, and facilitate deeply felt improvement in a comprehensive and empowering way.
Individual Adult Counseling w/Reiki Energy Healing
$205- 90 Minutes
My most POPULAR service, this is similar to the standard individual counseling, but instead, this session is 1 hour of Individual Counseling with an ADDED 30 minutes of Reiki healing to make the 90 minute session.
The benefits of adding reiki to your counseling begin at helping you to experience sensations of relaxation and calm. In addition to that, Reiki assists your "muscle memory" to release energetic blocks that are often linked to emotional triggers and smooth through the process of releasing difficult emotions from our minds, hearts, and physiological/physical experiences.
Sometimes, it is easy to get stuck in the "heavy" feelings of our life's journey, and adding reiki can facilitate the continual flow of moving those heavy feelings through your mind and body to exit your experience, and ultimately rebalance your "center" within yourself.
Individual Child/Adolescent Counseling Services (Standard)
$185- 75 Minutes
My personalized and unique approach to youth counseling combines my clinical counseling background along with options like reiki healing, intuitive development, empowerment & self-esteem skills, and also an education on spiritual/new age concepts and tools!
Having an extensive background in working with children and families, I am excited to now be offering these types of mind-body-spirit approaches within my private services & community offerings.
Session breakdown: 30 minutes of talking/counseling, followed by 30 minutes of reiki related healing time OR 30 minutes of holistic healing exploration/education OR expressive activity participation, followed by 15 minutes of wrap up with parent/guardian at end of session.
At Awaken Holistic Counseling Services, LLC, no service will ever be forced upon a child that is not willing to engage with me despite repeated attempts and varied types of efforts.
If a child is not comfortable with a service that you have requested, they will be asked to engage in conversation with me and their parent/guardian to discuss options of what they would be willing to participate in, and I will then discuss with parent(s)/guardian(s) what may be the best approach and possible options to go from there. This may also include referrals to external providers if my holistic services are not meeting the needs of the child/family unit, and/or may be in need of additional supports while I work with the child/family using this holistic service model.
I help my couples and/or 2-person relationship clients (i.e. family member relationships and/or friendships) to become aware, present, and open to receiving the information they want and need from the other person.
The "partnership/relationship" is the client in these services; with special attention to communication skills, understanding, and deepening the bond within the relationship. For couples, there is a special focus on how to Reignite the connection of the partners and regain the spark that was initially felt.
All relationships are different, but each relationship does have the choice, as well as the potential to change.
Openness, Communication, Honesty, and Courage to be Vulnerable are Central to Reconnection. If the "relationship" is in need of Renewal, and both parties are committed to its Rekindling/ deepening bond ...EVERYTHING is possible for improvement!

Dual/Couples Counseling w/Reiki Energy Healing
The addition of reiki healing with my counseling sessions is by far my most POPULAR service! For dual/couples clients, this session entails 1-hour of the usual counseling support with an ADDED 30 minutes of Reiki healing provided to the pair simultaneously to complete a 90-minute session.
During this simultaneous receipt of reiki, dual/couples clients will be asked to dial into their present moment together and connect through a safe and comfortable physical touch while both clients experience sensations of relaxation and calm. Many times, reiki can assist "muscle memory" to release energetic blocks that are often linked to emotional triggers and help smooth through the process of releasing difficult emotions from our minds, hearts, and physiological/physical experiences. As a dual/couples service option, this energy healing may provide a much needed gateway to open to the receiving of deeper emotional connection with one another, and also improve connection and experience of safe physical touch and affection.
Sometimes, it is easy to get stuck in the "heavy" feelings and patterns created during our life's journeys. Adding reiki to the emotional healing you are already pursuing can facilitate the continual flow of moving those heavy feelings through your mind and body to exit your experience, and ultimately rebalance your "center" within yourself... AND your relationship as a "unit".
Holistic Family Counseling (standard)
Receive compassionate support and understanding from a seasoned and non-threatening professional!
With over 4 years of working with children and their families as an outreach family therapist, I am no stranger to the upsets, communication breakdowns, and oppositional child/adolescent behaviors. I am also not a stranger to how quickly these same children and family members begin to engage with me as their helper, and realize how much I can assist them in redefining how their family operates and supports each other.
I am a game-changer with families; facilitating the shift in letting go of what no longer works, and laying a new foundation filled with connection, understanding, and a new lease on what a loving, healthy family looks like!
Watch this video for more info about my family approach!
This is a great service for families with unique challenges, adult children living in the family home, and parents who just can't figure out how to "speak the same language" as their children.
All families are different, but ALL have the Potential to connect and unify in a loving way that supports more secure bonding and forgiveness of past challenges. Contact me today to find out how I can help your family!
Holistic Family Counseling w/Reiki Energy Healing
$235- 90 Minutes
The addition of reiki healing with my counseling sessions is by far my most POPULAR type of service! For family clients, this session entails 1-hour of the usual counseling support with an ADDED 30 minutes of Reiki healing provided simultaneously to the family participants to complete a 90-minute session.
During this simultaneous receipt of reiki, family clients will be asked to "dial into their present moment together" and connect through a safe and comfortable physical touch while all clients experience sensations of relaxation, calm, and the movement of energy between each other. Many times, reiki can assist "muscle memory" to release energetic blocks that are often linked to emotional triggers and help smooth through the process of releasing difficult emotions from our minds, hearts, and physiological/physical experiences. As a family service option, this energy healing may provide a much needed gateway to open to the receiving of deeper emotional connection with one another, and also improve connection and the experience of safe physical touch and affection.
Sometimes, it is easy for families to get stuck in the "heavy" feelings and patterns created during the transitions of a family's journey. Adding reiki to the emotional healing you are already pursuing in counseling may help to support the releasing of those physiological reactions through your mind and body; creating an opportunity to ultimately rebalance your "center" within yourself... AND within your family as a "unit".
