Frequently asked Questions
Where is your office located?
Do you take my insurance?
What are your fees for therapy service?
What will therapy be like for me?
How will you be able to help me?
My intention is to create an atmosphere in therapy that is warm and inviting. I hope to create for you an opportunity to be completely open and honest about your life. In getting to know you, by truly listening to you and hearing your needs, I can then taylor my therapeutic approach to you -and only you. In doing this, we can work as a team to improve your life and reduce your concerns.
I am a therapist that uses many different modalities and different theories to help my clients. Your uniqueness makes you who you are- and no one psychological system fits everyone. This means that I know many different ways of helping people in order to find the specific system that will be most helpful for you, your spouse or your child.
How often must I have a therapy session?
I find that the key to good and effective therapy is consistency.
Most clients attend weekly therapy sessions, but some find it best to attend every other week. This will depend on your schedule and needs. Many of my clients prefer the same day and time every week- while clients that have been in therapy for a while feel that checking in as needed is helpful as they come to the end of therapy.
Do I have to be in therapy forever?
While there are people that feel a need to be in a therapeutic relationship for the majority of their life, most therapy is for a short time. It is my intention to help you manage your concerns in such a way that you will not need therapy forever. A wise friend of mine in graduate school said it best: “It is my intention to put myself out of a job by making therapy purposeful and short term.”
