Where are you located?

We are inside the Bank of America building on the 6th floor.
How long are sessions?
Sessions are typically 55-60 minutes depending on what areas we are discussing and working on that particular day.
What are your fees?
Each therapist has his or her own fees.
Dr. Shenan’s fees:
Initial Session: $150
Follow-up Sessions: $150 per session
Behavior Consultations: $175 (60-80 minutes)
Being an educator for more than 13 years has equipped me with numerous tools to help parents and teachers lead students to success.
In a behavior consultation, we talk about the behaviors that may be impeding learning and stopping growth at home. We then customize and implement a plan to meet your family’s needs. Students and parents will see and feel the success.
This meeting takes place at the office of ReAlign Counseling Center where parents/guardians will be in attendance, as well as the student, when needed.
Meeting Attendance: $250 (1 hour)
This fee includes a one-on-one meeting with the parent(s) before the ARD is scheduled. We will discuss in-depth issues that the school has expressed, issues that the parent(s) has/have both at school and home, as well as goals that the parent/guardian has for the student.
Finally, we will begin to discuss specifically customized interventions appropriate to help the child become successful at school. I will guide you step-by-step about the topics of discussion in the ARD meeting and help advocate for your child at the meeting.
Initial Session: $60
Follow-up sessions: $60
Initial Session for Individuals: $60
Follow-up Sessions for Individuals: $60

Do you take insurance?
Yes, we accept BCBS, Cigna, Aetna, Tricare, United Healthcare, and Medicaid plans (Beacon, Cigna Healthspring, and Traditional Medicaid). For other insurance companies, we are considered “out-of-network.”
*Cindy and Demond do not accept any insurance at this time.
However, if you would like to seek reimbursement on your own, we are happy to provide a super bill with the necessary information.
Why therapy? How will it even help?
The purpose of therapy is to help you understand the true YOU in a deep, meaningful way that transcends the surface. I am highly educated in human behavior, how the brain works, and how various life dynamics happen.
All these things are usually happening subconsciously, meaning you’re most likely not aware of them. It is VERY difficult to “see” yourself from the outside.
That’s why you might have heard that every good therapist sees his or her own therapist. We do this to maintain awareness of our own subconscious activity. We just can’t see ourselves and the baggage we carry, or even think of ways to cope with it, the way a highly trained third party can see it.
And if you’re part of a couple, specifically, as humans, you can become trapped in your own reactivity. You know you’re angry, annoyed, hurt… but often struggle to really understand WHY.
Demond will help you understand the “WHY.”
The “why” creates awareness and insight. And through cultivating those qualities is how change occurs. We can’t change something that we don’t even know is happening! So, insight allows for CHOICE… do you want to keep behaving that old way that doesn’t work – or would you like to behave differently now that you know other options?
Couples also gain a much deeper understanding of EACH OTHER in therapy. This intimacy creates more empathy and kindness, increasing your bond. When the bond is stronger, you can work together as a team, moving from “me against you” to an “us against the world” mindset.
Why am I hesitating to call you?
As a human, you’re a creature of habit – all changes and transitions are somewhat difficult. Plus, you have an evolutionary fear of the unknown and unfamiliar. I hope my website can answer many of the “unknowns” for you. But if you still have concerns or fears, just use the contact page to write me, and we can explore them together.
Therapy also has gotten a bad rap. Some people still think therapy is about lying on the couch and diving into Mommy and Daddy issues. Let me confidently reassure you: therapy has evolved!
Want to understand yourself better and get relief from any overwhelming emotion? Therapy is for you.
It’s not “screwed up” people who come to see me. Just the opposite really: it is the brave ones willing to be human and seek help for the things they don’t know about.
Therapy offers a choice:
You can unconsciously keep playing out the same patterns, stuck in your own habits and prisoner to your upbringings. Or you can step back, use your higher brain, and gain insight and awareness into your actions. That is how to change.
And… yes, sometimes we do end up talking about childhood issues.
How long will it take to feel better?
Hope and a sense of relief usually occur immediately after coming in. With a regular, weekly or bi-weekly commitment to therapy, you can see improvement in the first month. We often start prescribing interventions for individuals and couples within 2-3 sessions.
Like with most things, you get out with you put in. The more committed you are to the work, the quicker you will see lasting and sustainable results.
What kinds of people do you work with?
We work with people ages 12 to 100+ who struggle with anxiety, depression and/or trauma. You also might be dealing with life changes and transitions such as divorce, aging parents, growing children, relationship issues and low self-esteem. You might also be searching to find your “true self” and striving for self-improvement and actualization.
Couples that we see might be going through a rough patch where you’re struggling with communication, differences in parenting, or financial struggles. You may feel you’re at the end of your rope, and therapy is a last resort to save the relationship.
