Welcome

Welcome to Transitions Counseling, the private practice of Sean Slevin, LMFT, LPC. I understand firsthand that it takes courage to ask for help, regardless of how intensely stuck (or not) one feels. Wherever you are on the spectrum, you are taking an important step in researching counseling options. And when you feel ready I would love the opportunity to help you achieve the degree of wellness you desire for your life.

As you consider counseling, you may be wondering: “Can counseling really help me? Will I feel comfortable with the counselor? Will the counselor understand me?” Though I hope that my website will be helpful to you, some questions are best answered face-to-face. That is why I offer potential clients a trial session at half-price: so that you can explore firsthand whether I am a good fit for you.



Counseling with Sean

Compassionate & Hopeful Christian Counseling

Compassion and Hope: Unpacking My Christian Perspective (blog post and video)

Coming from a Christian perspective, I have deep compassion for the ways that growth can be difficult and painful at times, and also great hope for each person’s innate ability to change. Additionally I am able to help you to make sense of spiritual aspects of your life (if that is something you wish to incorporate). I am informed by my Christian faith (especially the compassionate life of Jesus), and I also respect others’ views. Clients from all faith and non-faith backgrounds are welcome. The discussion of spiritual topics is always at the discretion of each client.

Quotes About Sean:Sean is open, real, and empathetic with clients which helps them feel safe and understood.

Fee & Health Insurance

My fee is a sliding-scale ($120 to $80), with discounts for incomes below $100,000/year. The first session is half-price (e.g., $60). I do not accept insurance, but I can provide monthly statements if you wish to seek reimbursement from your insurance carrier. Note that using health insurance (directly or indirectly) for counseling requires that you meet the criteria for a mental health diagnosis, which then becomes a permanent part of your medical record. Please explore the FAQ for more details on health insurance reimbursement and alternatives to using health insurance for counseling.

Methods of Payment: I accept Cash, Check or Online Payment (via Dwolla). I do not accept credit cards. Consult the FAQ for more details.
