Banta Whitner, LCSW
Psychotherapy for the Next Chapter
Individual and Couples Counseling
Whether you are in crisis, navigating a life transition, or want to engage in a cycle of personal growth work, we can schedule video sessions at a frequency to meet your needs. Your initial visit will last an hour; subsequent sessions will be 50 min. in length.
Ancestral Lineage Healing
Everyone has wise and loving ancestors. Yet we often inherit intergenerational trauma and cultural harms passed down along our lineages. Ancestral lineage healing can help repair these wounds. For more information and to Book a Session, visit me over at www.calloftheancestors.org.
The Work That Reconnects
A powerful methodology developed by deep ecologist Joanna Macy, TWTR seeks to reconnect us to the Earth, the web of life, to community, and to ourselves. TWTR's unique process builds creativity, courage and solidarity for transition to a more sustainable world. Contact me to learn more about this important work.
Care for the Caregiver
Family caregivers, healers, therapists and clergy often neglect their own self care, and are vulnerable to personal and professional burnout. Caregiver counseling provides the tools and support to regain a healthy balance and promote sustained wellness.
If you wrestle with big questions of life and death, meaning and purpose, you may benefit from spiritual journey work. In this context, you can explore a deeper relationship with the spiritual aspect of being human, and find ways to tell your own sacred story,
Virtual Video Sessions
All sessions are via Zoom or phone. The usual and customary fees and time frames apply.
If your organization needs a workshop facilitator, I offer an interactive online (virtual via Zoom) curriculum aligned with your agenda. Recent topics include Ancestral Lineage Healing, Pandemic Fatigue, and Earth Reconnection.
Available to interns working toward LPC licensure in NC, and to those working toward LCSW licensure in FL.
Frequently asked questions
What will therapy cost?
Therapy is an investment in yourself and all of your next chapters. The fee for your Intake appointment and subsequent 50-minute sessions is $150. Payment may be made in cash, by check, credit card or Venmo. These fees apply to individual and couples counseling, parent coaching, and video conferencing only. If you think you qualify for a discounted fee, or for information regarding all other services, please contact me directly.
Is therapy covered by my insurance?
As a senior clinician who has spent many years dealing with insurance companies, I now work strictly out-of-network. If you have a PPO plan, I can provide you with an insurance claim form to file for reimbursement. Since any reimbursement will come directly to you, please plan to pay for each session in full at the time of your visit.
How long will therapy take?
While each person's circumstances and needs are unique, you can expect to spend 8-12 sessions in solution-focused work. In depth personal growth work, trauma resolution, chronic patterns, and generational issues may require more time.
What about missed appointments or cancellations?
Your appointment time is reserved for you and you alone. If you need to cancel and reschedule, kindly give at least 24 hours notice to avoid being charged the full fee. Missed appointments are billed at the same rate as a 50-minute session.
