Frequently Asked Questions
Therapy helps you connect with yourself and use your strengths to work through life’s stumbling blocks. It quiets the noise in your head so that you can attain an objective point of view of your concerns and then make decisions from a place of clarity. It also helps heal wounds––whether old or new––so you can continue to grow and find fulfillment.
As a therapist, it is my job to actively listen, reflect, identify patterns you may not have been aware of, and help you find ways to overcome barriers that are keeping you from achieving your goals.
I employ various creative and fun exercises to provide clarity and help you “get out of your own way”. Many of my clients liken their therapy sessions to sitting in a comfortable living room speaking with someone who feels like an objective and nonjudgmental friend. With a coach by your side to offer support and guidance, you experience immediate feelings of empowerment and clarity. You leave energized and challenged to go beyond what you’re used to and achieve results you never thought were attainable.
I absolutely do! I offer individual and couples’ counseling in person and online.
Absolutely! Because we do deep work to shift your patterns in life, these results are long lasting. You and I will not only focus on the symptoms but, we will identify how to shift the core issues underneath it all. And because of this, your results are long lasting and you will never have to revisit that issue in the same way again.
Play therapy and other creative modalities enable children to access their power. They learn they don’t have to act out and that there are coping skills they can use as building blocks for the rest of their lives. Once they learn to express their feelings appropriately, life feels easier for them and consequently for their family.
Therapy is a highly effective way to “nip it in the bud” before things escalate in later years.
I am an out of network provider but you can use your PPO and POS coverage for our sessions. The way it works is you pay me at the time of the session and send a superbill to the insurance company, that I provide for you.
The insurance company will then reimburse you a percentage of what you paid, once your deductible has been met. To get specifics of what the actual amount would be, you will have to contact your insurance company.
That depends on your therapy goals and what you and I think is beneficial once we start. It is often helpful to include the points of view of other people in your life, especially if you have issues with them.
The key is feeling safe and secure while doing so. The comfortable, caring environment of therapy allows you to address issues with loved ones you may not feel comfortable doing elsewhere. And remember, you’re not alone.
I am always here to serve as a mediator opening the lines of communication between you and your loved ones.
If you want family members to participate in therapy, but they refuse, I encourage you to come anyway––for your own clarity and support. I often find when one person in the family starts therapy, others eventually come, too––either because they are curious about the healthy changes being made, or because they want the same for themselves. Either way, even if your family members don’t participate, you will be better equipped to cope with family issues––and that often leads to changes in others as well.
No. Many therapy approaches, including hypnotherapy, rapid reduction, desensitization and mind-body techniques work effectively by focusing on the present moment––letting the past inform us only when necessary. As you and I work together I will identify with you what approach works best for you.
A session lasts 45 minutes or 90 minutes, depending on how deep you’d like to dive in.
Since everyone is different, you and I will discuss what frequency best supports you. Some clients benefit from coming once a week, while those needing more support find it helpful to come more often or for longer sessions.
As we work together, you and I will decide when you have met your therapy goals. At that time, you can choose to end therapy, set new goals or examine other issues that may have surfaced during the process.
Therapy is completely confidential. The only time I am obligated to break confidentiality is when a client expresses a potential for harm to either himself or herself––or others. If you would like for me to speak to Doctors or anyone else about your sessions, you will sign a release of information.
