About Reconnaissance

Reconnaissance delights in engaging people to further their abilities to connect with others and thrive themselves. We quest to the places of concern together and find solutions that last. The therapy road is as unique as you are and Reconnaissance tailors the approach with each relationship.

Reconnaissance specializes in the root of who you are – your heart – what makes you, you. Reconnaissance is about giving your heart what’s missing and pruning back what’s hindering you from living life abundantly. Therapy provides you the opportunity to learn at your core how to live in a way you haven’t before. Beyond more content or a formula for different behavior, Reconnaissance is committed to use therapy not for a short-term fix but a lasting benefit.

Working With Reconnaissance

Each therapy session is $189.00 by cash, check or debit/credit card. Please make checks payable to Reconnaissance. A $35 fee is charged for bounced checks in addition to the session fee. A monthly statement is sent by mail or e mail for your records.

Legal Services

In the even that you request testimony in legal proceedings from Reconnaissance or Reconnaissance is subpoenaed to testify in a legal proceeding you are involved in, a retainer fee of $1,500/day of court is required prior to the court date(s). Reconnaissance is not obligated to but may reimburse this should court be canceled since Reconnaissance must clear all appointments ahead of time in preparation for the court date. If the court date is postponed within a reasonable amount of time (e.g. within one week of the original date), Reconnaissance will apply the original retainer fee and no additional retainer is required.

If regular paperwork is required for your legal proceedings (e.g. case summaries), Reconnaissance may charge $25/incident. However, most instances are with no charge.
