  • Why do people attend therapy?
    There are many reasons people decide to seek therapy including difficulty with the following: communication, stress, sleep, relationships, processing past traumas, low mood, feeling “stuck” or “numb”, lack of interest, excessive worry, concentration, and more.
  • What are the benefits of therapy?
    The outcomes of therapy vary, but the goal is for the client to build new skills, gain insight and awareness, learn about their symptoms, and have a reduction or elimination of symptoms. Processing past traumatic events can result in ability to overcome the feeling of “numbness” or hypersensitivity, as well as feeling able to move forward without being triggered by memories of the past. This can result in better sleep, improved relationships with family and friends, improved mood and more.
  • How long are therapy sessions?
    Typically, 60-minute sessions are scheduled, and they are completed in 53-55 minutes. We can discuss scheduling shorter sessions if needed.
  • How long will I need therapy?
    Goals and timeframe are specific to each individual. Although I am unable to predict the length of time needed for services, you should feel involved and comfortable in the process of pursuing your goals throughout therapy. You have the right to decide to space out your sessions or stop services at any time.
  • Are our conversations confidential?
    Yes, with few exceptions related to mandated reporting. If you are using insurance for billing, they have the right to access information needed for billing purposes. If you decide you’d like me to disclose information related to services to anyone else, a Release of Information (ROI) must be completed.
  • My insurance covers services provided by a psychiatrist, psychologist, psychotherapist or social worker, what is the difference?"
    Psychiatrists are medical doctors who are specialize in providing mental health medication. Psychologists, LPCs, LMFTs and licensed clinical social workers are all psychotherapists. The approaches and specializations among these professions may differ.
