  • Is therapy right for me?
    Anyone who wants to make personal changes toward greater life satisfaction can benefit from therapy. Research shows that the best way to benefit from therapy is to find a therapist you believe you can connect to and be open with.
  • What type of method or approach do you use?
    Overall, I use a combination of insight-oriented therapy (psychodynamic) combined with skills-based work (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy). The majority of clients have found great benefit simply from talking through their struggles and having a person to listen and understand. I do try to add education about coping skills when appropriate. I use evidence based treatment and adjust the therapy method according to what works best and client feedback.
  • What can I expect at my first session?
    This session is spent getting to know one another, discussing what brings you to therapy and identifying any potential goals.
  • Is what we talk about confidential?
    Yes, by and large, what we discuss is confidential. No information is disclosed without your prior authorization. The only exceptions are if there is suspected abuse of a child, elder, or disabled adult or threat to harm yourself or someone else.
  • How long does therapy last?
    All clients start with 45-60 minute sessions once per week. Though most continue with this schedule, some increase to twice per week and others taper down to every other week, as appropriate. The course of therapy lasts anywhere from 3 months to several years, depending on your goal. As long as you are wanting to improve or talk about areas of your life, therapy can continue. I only provide voluntary treatment and you can stop attending at any time.
  • Is therapy covered by my insurance?
    Depending on what kind of health plan you have, you may be eligible for financial reimbursement towards your therapy bills. I am an out-of-network provider and I do not accept insurance. If you have out-of-network mental health benefits, you may be able to submit claims to cover a portion of your payment, after you meet your deductible. If you are unsure about what benefits you have, contact your insurance company directly. I have also partnered with Better - an app that helps clients who pay out-of-pocket to get reimbursed by their health insurance. Learn more here.
  • How do I cancel or reschedule a session?
    If something comes up, simply contact me via phone or email 48 hours before the scheduled appointment. Life happens! There are times that unforeseen events come up and you will need to reschedule a session. I ask that you contact me via phone or email as soon as possible and we will find an alternative time to meet.
