Home-Based Therapy

Cindy Souser, LMFT

Cindy Souser, LMFT Cindy Souser, LMFT, a licensed marriage and family therapist, specializes in home-based services for Knippenberg, Patterson, Langley & Associates.  Home-based services are designed for families who desire an accelerated path to resolving challenges in the home environment.  Initiating therapeutic services to the natural home setting allows for the creative implementation of behavioral interventions, and is particularly helpful for families whose children's behavior has become disruptive to the home environment. During the initial meeting, Cindy will help you devise specific, individualized interventions to address problematic behavior, and to strengthen the inner workings of the family. The introductory package for Home-Based Family Therapy begins at a rate of $600.  This special rate includes four (4) hours of family work both in office and at your home.  The process begins by meeting at our office  and working collaboratively to create a customized plan for your family.  During this time, you will discuss the skills, strategies and  the language necessary to help create positive behaviors, reduce power struggles and resolve conflict.  Subsequent sessions will be conducted in your home as you work in a partnership with Cindy,  implementing new skills and targeting problem behaviors and family challenges.   This flextime package allows Cindy to work together with your family’s specific needs in order to successfully implement the plan and help you practice the new language and techniques to achieve family harmony.  Cindy is available to answer questions and available for your coaching needs between session. Additional sessions can be purchased at a rate of $165 (office)  and $200 (in home). A travel fee of $25 will apply for homes past a 15 mile parameter from our office.
