THERAPY MUDITA

CONNECTING DEEPER IN A FAST-PACED WORLD

90-Minute Counseling Experiences – Lodi,WI

You feel disconnected.

Disconnected from others and disconnected from yourself.

You watch the outside world with both confusion and fascination as you exist on the outskirts. You go through the motions of life… checking all the boxes, fulfilling your obligations and then you go to bed to get up and do it all over again.

EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

On the outside, your life looks really great! Because holding things together is what you do and letting people down feels like a painful personal failure you avoid at all costs! You’re good at keeping up appearances and not rocking the boat, but under the smooth smile you feel stuck, disillusioned and unseen. You don’t even recognize the person in the mirror anymore, because you’ve lost… well… you

You care deeply about the people in your life, but often you feel a wall or a disconnection from them. Mostly, you feel like the maid or the paycheck or the roommate, and you wish for a bond between you and them that  

How in the heck did this happen??

Recently, you tried a few drinks or a new fad diet or even fish oil capsules to lift your spirits, but you still felt a void or a stuck-ness. So, you read some self-help books and bought a fancy new thing-a-ma-jig, but the despair returned.

Now, the air of motivation has been sucked out of you and you wonder whether a life of happiness is even possible for you; maybe it’s just an illusion you are chasing?

But then, there is a little PUSH.

Maybe it’s a word from someone, the lyrics in a song, a memory on Facebook or an internal whisper that says, “You are meant for more.” It’s a glimmer of hope. A sign that the fighter in you is still awake and… 

it hungers to live a life that matters!

You’re looking for a therapist who can help you break free from the heavy burden of obligation and despair you are feeling and build a life where you feel like you get to matter, too. You want to find a way to feel a zest for life again, to live boldly and unapologetically!

You may worry about disappointing others or being selfish but you also know that staying the same is hurting you, so you refuse to settle! You are also longing to feel deeply connected with others and you want this to be genuine, not out of obligation or with a less complete version of you.

When you schedule a session with me at Therapy Mudita, you will start to see that YOU can live a bigger life, a fearless life, while still caring about others. With my true-talk therapy style, you will be challenged and supportively guided to develop a life that is authentic and action-packed with purpose that benefits everyone!

You will learn to trust yourself, to better balance the needs of you and others, to step out of your comfort zone, and design a life you love living.

You will experience a real happiness that you feel deep down in your bones.

And the world will benefit from a true you, a bold you, that you share out loud!

Testimonials

“When I first started working with Sarah I would say that I was in a state of confusion; unsure of what direction to go in my life and lacked the confidence to trust that I would make the right decision. Sarah listened attentively to me. She never rushed me. She was warm and accepting. She showed empathy. She helped me to recognize that I am not alone in my struggles. Sarah provided me with critical feedback helping me not only to have better insight about myself but also to see the perspectives of others. Through my work with Sarah I now feel more confident n myself, I engage in less personalization, and have better relationships in my family. I am truly thankful to have had Sarah be my mental health mentor.”

~Amber (36)

“Sarah is a kind, compassionate soul with the capabilities to endure and absorb an overload of broken and negative energy. She helped me into a better  place with patience, kindness, and a genuine empathy that I have never experienced throughout a lifetime of struggles. For me, Sarah has been the shelter from the storm that I have needed to safely rest and heal in order to become less fearful and more functional in my day to day life.”

~ Christopher (44)

“Sarah is very connected to how I feel and where I am. She always manages to get me out of the hole and back on the positive track! I am never afraid to say anything to her. Not judgmental and always ready to share a story and smile.”

~ Hope (63)

“Sarah walks with us on this journey as a friend and fellow being on the path of life, radiating God’s goodness and grace, through her compassionate care, kindness and concern for the sacred Other.”

-LET ME INTRODUCE MYSELF-

Hi! I'm Sarah...

and this is my private office in beautiful Lodi, WI.

I bring 23 years of experience and a no-nonsense, compassionate style to my work as a Professional Counselor. My goal as your therapist is to guide you toward a life of vitality and meaning that is authentic to you. Not a life you “should” live, but one that you are meant to live.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

WHY DO YOU ONLY OFFER 90-MINUTE SESSIONS?

I have worked as a psychotherapist for over 20 years and one thing that I have often wanted is to have more time with my clients.

The basic 50-minute session often feels rushed and can remain "surface-based" because it is difficult to have the time to do the deeper, sometimes more vulnerable or emotional, insight work of therapy.

At Therapy Mudita, I have decided to provide what I believe offers more benefit to my clients: 90-minute sessions.

Offering longer length sessions to my clients provides:

- Time to settle into the session and get "present" (out of rush-mode) and comfortable. (**A variety of beverages are available for you to enjoy during our chat, including sparkling water, tea, coffee and soda. 🙂

- Time to gain a greater level of understanding about yourself because we can delve deeper into patterns and themes in your life.

- Time away from our fast paced world to learn to "be" and become intentionally connected to our inner self; our hurts and our longings.

- Time to process issues and concerns more deeply allows the healing and learning process to move along more quickly.

- Time to collect yourself and re-establish a readiness for functioning outside of the therapy office without feeling rushed or emotionally vulnerable.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

I have a cozy office in Lodi, WI at 602 Corner Street. I am located next to Spring Creek Familly Chiropractic Clinic and Lucy's Diner.

DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?

No. I have chosen to move out of the insurance system.

While this may seem odd at first, let me explain my SIX reasons for not taking insurance:

1. I want to be able to provide longer length, 90-minute sessions for my clients. (Only basic sessions up to 50 minutes are covered by insurance.)

Offering longer length sessions to my clients provides:

- Time to settle into the session and get "present" (out of rush-mode) and comfortable. (A variety of beverages are available for you to enjoy during our chat, including sparkling water, tea, coffee and soda. 🙂

- Time to gain a greater level of understanding about yourself because we can delve deeper into patterns and themes in your life.

- Processing issues and concerns more deeply allows the healing and learning process to move along more quickly.

- Time to collect yourself and re-establish a readiness for functioning outside of the therapy office without feeling rushed.

2. By choosing to pay out-of-pocket for counseling, the work you do in your sessions is kept confidential between you and me, your therapist. Most insurance companies require access to your session notes so that they can make determinations about your care.

3. When using insurance, it is mandatory to give you a mental illness diagnosis for billing purposes.  This diagnosis becomes part of your permanent medical record which may affect life insurance policies and certain careers. (Unfair, but currently true.)

4. I want to be able to privide the most effective and evidence-based treatment to my clients. Not all diagnoses and treatment modalities are covered by insurance companies and some insurance companies only cover an allotted a number of sessions in therapy. As you can see, these restrictions may not allow me to provide the most effecive treatment to you at all times.

5. Most people have high deductible plans that they likely won't meet within the year. This means that going through your insurance company might actually cost you more money out of pocket.

6. Finally, I am not wired to chase down money from insurance companies. The billing red tape is very complex and I am simply not money motivated enough to fight with the insurance monoliths. (Needless to say, I didn't go into the helping field to be rich. 😉

For all of these reasons, I am a pay for service private practice.

As a private-pay practice, payment is collected at the time of service. Cash, check or credit cards or HSA payments** are accepted.

Please Note:

- **You are able to use your Health Savings Account monies toward payment.

- I can also make available a "Superbill" (or a Statement for Reimbursement form) that you can submit to your insurance company. If your insurance company allows out-of-network mental health coverage, you will be reimbursed at their out-of-network rate. It is usually between 50-80% of what you pay. (Call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask: "Do you cover out of network mental health services? What is your reimbursement rate?")
