Looking out from my office
Walking up to the back deck



For safety and inspiration, some clients prefer my Outdoor Offices. During Covid sheltering at home, many people have come to discover as I have the soothing recreational powers of naturally quiet settings.  I have lived in a wooded hilltop retreat for twenty years, and now, I am sharing that retreat for the first time with my clients.

I offer two outdoor offices, one in Louisville and the other east of Shelbyville at the free-standing office behind my home. At these outdoor offices, we can keep a distance of 8-10 feet. In respect I will gladly wear a mask with any clients who come wearing one.  Both my outdoor offices have cushy seats with shelter from sun, wind, and rain. Looking out from the office buildings that we are using for privacy and shelter, both decks are substantially free from the sight and sound of any other people, or anything else manmade.

My Outdoor Home Office Halfway Between Louisville And Lexington

is for established clients who are male, and for married couples. Feel free to call and ask me more about it. This free-standing office is 50 feet from the back door of my home. We may sit around on its back deck, or during rain, on the front porch, or the screen porch of my home. 100 yards away is what we call the point, with nothing man-made but a clear view in three directions of the horizon 50 miles out.   More about Jeptha Knob can be found on its Wikipedia page.

Work with Me from your Home

With God together, we can find and make good things coming out of this bad situation. . . .

Counseling by telephone has long been used to supplement psychotherapy in the office. When distance, mobility, health, or transportation is an issue, teletherapy is a practical alternative to working together in person.  Insurance sometimes pays for this form of service. We arrange for my payment in advance, through credit card, HSA, Venmo, or Cash App.

For teletherapy/videoconferencing sessions, I charge $150 per hour.  The first call to me is free, and I’ll give a listening ear, then insights and suggestions, for up to 15 to 20 minutes. For those who prefer it, I am set up to do video calls at no extra charge, using FaceTime, Skype, or the extra secure, encrypted, password-protected platform I have purchased for Zoom meetings. Take advantage of teletherapy to save time, money, and save your health.
