Frequently Asked Questions
Does getting psychotherapy mean that there is something wrong with me or that I’m crazy?
Absolutely not. People from all walks of life seek therapy for a number of reasons, including therapists. Therapy is about your time to talk about yourself and find ways to resolve issues in a healthy and adaptive manner.
What is a typical therapy appointment?
Appointments are for 50 minutes. The sessions are held once or twice a week which depends on your special situation and therapy goals.
How frequently will I visit you?
During our initial consultation, we’ll discuss the schedule that best fits your needs. Typically, we’ll set up a specific date and time to meet once or twice a week. You should attend therapy regularly, come on time, and cancel in only urgent cases in order to reap the benefits of counseling.
Do you accept insurance?
I do not accept insurance. My fees are private pay and due at the time of service. Documentation can be provided to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
What payment methods do you accept?
When you begin services you will be required to put an active credit or debit card on file to pay at the time of services and to cover no-show/late cancellation fees.
What benefits can I expect from working with a therapist?
Counseling offers a variety of benefits but there are no guarantees. During your phone consultation and initial therapy appointment, it will be important for us to fully explore your expectations and goals. Part of my job is to help you identify what is possible and not possible to achieve in therapy. I will also help you define specific goals and outcomes.
What will we do in therapy?
My role is to assist you with making the life changes that you choose to make. I focused on helping you obtain the life that you desire by working with you on utilizing your strengths to improve your life. I am also here to support you as we do this challenging work together. My therapeutic approach involves some skills training, some work outside of therapy, and a lot of interactive dialogue.
