Frequently Asked Questions

Those who engage in therapy are taking their lives into their hands and making changes for themselves. This can mean, working through past experiences so they no longer impact your day to day, or moving through blocks that hold you back from your goals. In turn, you will be able to create a greater sense of self-connection. This leads to greater confidence, fulfillment and saily effectiveness.

If you are stuck in a cycle of the same actions, thoughts and feelings, I can help. Therapy can support you in moving towards the direction you want. You know there is another path out there.

Everyone hits challenges in life, we often feel that reaching out for help makes us weak. When we reach out for help we have the opportunity to grow past what we knew was possible for us. We create empowerment for ourselves and find new skills that make life more of what we want it to be. 

Therapy is an individual process based on individual needs. Therapy can support in working through mood disorders, alleviate anxiety and depression and process trauma. It is also used to help people increase their satisfaction in life and within themselves, work through old narratives that we too often tell ourselves “I’m not good enough”, “I have to carry everyone else’s struggles” and “I’m alone or feel unseen” to name a few.

We also offer Brainspotting to support in working through blocks in your life that are impacting your performance. When we work through these blocks you are able to have increased confidence in yourself, increased creativity and innovation.

We do not prescribe medication. If you have a prescriber already we are happy to work as a team with this person to ensure that you have a treatment team that collaborates and you get the best care possible.

We offer a free 15 minute consultation over the phone to ensure that we are a good fit for you. If you decide that we are not we will give you additional resources to reach out to.

Each therapist at Empowerment Within accepts different insurance and have different private pay scales. One reason many people choose to do private pay over utilizing insurance is to keep their information private. Insurance requires a specific amount of information including a diagnosis, progress notes, and treatment plans to pay for services.

Each individual is different and each session will likely look different. We work with each client to ensure that as we work together we are working towards your goals and what you are wanting to change in your life. We can utilize many different techniques from talk therapy to Brainspotting or Mindfulness. See the individual therapy page for additional information. 

Each of us holds a degree and license in the state of WI. We have each gone through graduate school and some of our therapists are provisionally licensed. This means they receive ongoing supervision until they are fully licensed after their 3000 hours of provision licensing.

We strongly encourage you to pick a therapist based on it feeling like a good fit and feeling confident in what they offer rather than licensing

Our specialties include: anxiety, trauma, depression, first responders, those in the helping profession (therapists, nurses, doctors, teachers), anyone who is interested in shedding old negative views of themselves to live a more confident and happy life. We also do group and couples work. 

We offer both online and in person appointments. Meaning that you are able to do therapy from the comfort of your own home or hours away, so long as you are located in WI. We utilize a HIPPA compliant form of Zoom or Therapy Notes for all online appointments. Insurance does not generally cover online appointments so these would be mainly available for private pay clients. Feel free to contact us!
